Are there things you have dreamed of doing but you are too scared, you don’t know how, or there never seems to be an opportunity? That was me once too. Along with my Adventure Sister, Emy Minzel, I want to inspire you to get out there and live your dreams. That is why I am writing this blog. I want to share with you our journey from the couch to the BWCA (Boundary Water Canoe Area), so that you can see how it can change your life. I want to use my background as a nurse and a holistic healer to give you a better sense as to what wellness is and how it involves mind, body, and spirit. Finally I want this blog to be a place where people who love nature can connect and share that mutual love and respect for Mother Earth.
Do you dream of traveling? I used to be that person who talked about wanting to go places, but there never seemed to be enough money or time to travel. Now I travel almost every week. I want to share my journey to a life of travel and adventure so that you can have the life of your dreams too. There is so much magic and beauty in this world. You should be out there experiencing it, embracing the joy. It is there for you.
Being truly well involves Mind, Body, and Spirit. This blog will share stories and invoke thoughts and conversations about true wellness. I want to share ideas about what might be under the discomfort or unhappiness that your body is projecting. I have been a nurse for almost three decades. I began studying alternative healing modalities because I was dissatisfied with what western medicine had to offer. I have studied wellness and have certifications in a number of other modalities and techniques. I believe everyone has a right to wellness and also the power within themselves to achieve it on a greater level.
Do you feel connected? Do you want to feel a greater sense of connection? My spiritual journey is ever evolving. I want to share stories of awe and amazement with you in order to help you find that sense of peace and connection within yourself. The spiritual aspect of wellness is far to often overlooked in western culture. Finding that connection can change your life in ways you may not even be able to dream of right now.
Love of Nature
For me nature is a place where I can find peace; it can quiet the buzz of the busy lives we find ourselves in. I feel that sense of connection through nature but I also find she drives my sense of adventure. Mother nature is full of lessons for us, not to mention, amazing beauty to share. Let’s come together as a community and share how that beauty can move us in ways nothing else can.
Emy Minzel, Adventure Sister and myself want people everywhere to find their soul siblings to go on adventures, experience improved wellness, find that sense of connection, and share their love of nature. We believe it will make the world a better and happier place. Thanks for taking the time to read my first blog entry. I look forward to sharing this journey with you.
