The Roots of the Collective
When I was a senior, we lost the home I grew up in and I’ve been on my own ever since. Hence, I like to think of myself as a nomad. I live by the motto *home is where I am*. The past has proven difficult for me as I lost touch with my heart, my soul, and therefore my “home” more times than I’d like to admit. I had no idea who I was or even what I liked to do when I was by myself. The love + light that I cherished so deeply and gave so freely, started to dim. When I realized that the love I had for myself only came from sharing it with others, I was lost. As I sat in the silence, I noted where my mind would go. My thoughts kept escaping to some made up adventure—I saw myself hiking through canyons, doing yoga on a deserted beach, backpacking the Pacific Crest— collecting stones along each journey. I told myself I’d learn to be happy + content IF I could just leave this life to run away to be alone. I kept searching for answers while cramming my schedule as my way of keeping distracted from the chaos inside. But being busy isn’t all it seems. I kept going just to uphold the status of being responsible, driven, strong, etc. It’s no wonder why I needed to get away so badly— I was holding onto these ideals to prove to others, therefore proving it to myself, that I could juggle it all + still be OK. But when I was most vulnerable, when I was alone with just me, that gunk I had been avoiding for so many years came up. I slowly started to rebuild. I nurtured my feelings + learned how lovely it is to be intentionally still within, allowing my mind, body + soul to heal and lead me back home- rebuilt with a stronger foundation. What came about is a pure reflection of myself. My compass pointing in all directions, but my Wandering Soul free + doing what it adores. Photography is my biggest passion + career focus, but my continuous desire to share yoga + curate crystals are also worthy of attention. Hence, Wandering Soul Collective LLC- A collection of three ambitions that drive me + enable me to continue to travel, connect, and inspire. All while bringing my dream to fruition + persevering in growth.
I couldn’t make this dream into a reality without really awesome humans by my side.
