when in doubt – take a walk

take a walk

 

Taking walks is good when you are stressed, or bored, or excited, or sad, or happy, or overwhelmed, or relaxed…

I swear, some of my best ideas come from taking walks. There’s something so meditative and mind opening about walks…I highly recommend it. 🙂

Try it. And do more of it. 🙂

Also, this notecard is inspired by this song.

 

Happy walking!

Love always & Namaste,

Volta

 

How To [Be a Happy Camper]

How to be a Happy Camper:

1. Bring matches/lighter for the fire

2. Include hot dogs in your diet (or vegetarian alternative)

3. Bring extra-large marshmallows

4. Lots of drinking water, especially during hot summer Texan days

5. Bring a tent and a mattress (better & cheaper than a sleeping bag)

6. Bug spray/sunscreen are essential

7. Wear comfy shoes for hiking and other shenanigans

8.  Bring a notebook to record funny stories about rowdy armadillos, or any fleeting poetic moments you may have

9. Come with wondrous eyes

10. Have you by my side

I just came back from my first camping trip. It was awesome and I can’t wait to go back. 🙂

Love always & Namaste,

I found purpose in movement.

Move.

Move on.

Move along.

With the sea.

Like the water, always flowing.

Move and let go.

Trust your heart and move on.

Pledge allegiance to your soul.

Listen to the voice within.

Follow your dreams.

Surrender to your heart and the universe will reward you.

Pledge allegiance to respect your soul, wholly and always.

I’m back from a hiatus. Starting a new job and keeping up with the site seemed overwhelming and exhausting, so I wanted to step away from it for a while. Though, because I neglected a very important part of my soul, I struggled this entire time with my inner happiness and self-worth.

I relaxed. I stopped creating. I forgot my soul for a while and the results were heart-wrenching and extremely tiring. I kept telling myself that I was too tired to create, too tired to think of ideas, too tired to answer my soul’s desires. In return, I felt even more drained and lifeless.

But…it feels good to be back. And it feels good to have regained that part of me that for a while seemed to be so dormant.

I pledge allegiance to my soul.

And I hope you pledge allegiance to yours.

Love always and Namaste,

Volta

Do not fear leaving behind…

…the familiar. Go forth. Explore!

Many times, personal growth can happen when we leave the familiar and dive head in into strange experiences.  It may be scary and uncomfortable, but those are usually signs that we should do it, we should go for it. The things we can learn through those experiences are priceless and can lead to some incredible self discoveries.

And the best part about this – you don’t have to leave your city(though seeing a completely different culture is also beneficial). Just go to a different part of town, go somewhere you’ve never been before, try a new activity you’ve never done before, a new food you’ve never tasted…The possibilities are endless, if only you are willing!

Go forth!

Explore!
