Do you remember when you were a kid and you said to yourself, when I’m older I’m gonna do this…my life will look like this, I will have that… Well one of my very first memories almost 20 years ago, while I was in Greece one summer, a loving person gratefully took me to the King George in Athens. Little did I know it would make such an extreme impact on my life. From the first glance I was LOVE-STRUCK & in absolute breathtaking awe. After passing through the beautiful lobby & up to the rooftop level of the Tudor Hall, I remember saying silently to myself, I want a life like this, I want to come here when I’m older, I want this to be apart of my everyday lifestyle. I didn’t know it at the time but visually & sensorially being exposed to such a magical- inspirational place set new heights & goals within myself for me to look forward to & achieve for my future self.
Mental health is number one for me so being able to connect with my past high vibrational thoughts to my thoughts of today is meaningful in a way words cannot really describe. You know you and your thoughts that’s all that matters.
Follow your instincts:
It’s important to plant seeds with thyself: You plant the seed then nourish it with water as much as possible & then when the moment is right it will naturally align with who you are & what you desire the most. Showing up, being there, gave me such a sense of accomplishment, gave me a new freeing confidence within myself that I actually had this dream-desire from almost two decades ago and to be reunited with my soul spirit made me feel inner peace & harmony that dreams do come true and we do have a say where we go & the outcome of our choices. The power ofCHOICE, our thoughts & words are everything & most of the time we do not even understand or realize it.

This moment in time I will look back, be proud, grateful to know that I walked, led a life of choice to honor, make self happy and to have & owned self love.
It’s memories & merits like these that remind me, I am on my path and that everything happens for a reason. I too have a purpose here on this planet within this universe and I know if you are reading this you know you do as well. Enjoy this precious gentle beautiful journey.

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
