Find romance in all facets of life!

Video

A lot of us have a tendency to expect our romantic partners to fulfill all of our needs. The thing is, it’s totally unrealistic to expect one person to do so! Take the pressure off of him/her and start finding romance, joy, and fulfillment in all facets of your life!

Vlog: Enhance Your Relationships

Standard

Hey, all! I sincerely apologize for my lack of activity on here, recently. I am going to be posting more frequently, from now on.

Over my young life, I’ve encountered many people and observed a lot of relationships. I decided to make a vlog on a few of my thoughts. As said in the video, I’d love to hear your feedback and constructive criticism!

The Power of Setting Intention

Video

While slightly off the topic of travel plans, I have the irrefutable urge to briefly share about the power and impact of internal choice. Friends, there are infinite amounts of love, equanimity, happiness, and connectivity within this world! So many people go through daily life without realizing many of the things they yearn for are truly accessible. In fact, all you have to do is reach out and grab them!

The first step to attaining _________ (positivity, love, success, peace, productivity, etc.) is to make a conscientious effort to send out into the world what you want to receive. This principle has been expressed in many ways, over many years, and in many contexts. In the Christian faith, it’s the Gold Rule. Like many others, I grew up hearing the maxim, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” This foundational concept of Christianity can be appreciated despite one’s religious beliefs. In philosophy, it appears as the concept of synchronicity. By this standard of thinking, synchronicity is the uncanny merging of two seemingly unrelated events. Sometimes, situations just seem pan out in an astonishingly perfect way—to me, this is the work of synchronicity. In the New Age way of thought, the related idea of setting intention emerges. The key to the practice of setting intention is genuinely believing that there is an abundance of _________ (fill in your need) in the universe just waiting to be taken advantage of. Consciously setting your intention allows for said intent to be engrained deep within you. In this regard, an intent can be far more impacting than a goal. Goals are set frequently, and often forgotten just as frequently. Unlike goals, intentions aren’t simply a wish or desire that you write down and refer back to at the coming of a new year. Setting a sincere intention also involves staying consciously aware of your intent and being open enough to let the universe work on your behalf.

I heartily recommend incorporating intent setting into your morning ritual. It’s a wonderful way to frame your entire day!

Tell me, friends, what intention are you going to set today?

Hello world!

Well, this is my very first blog…ever. I’m definitely looking forward to having a place to record all the exciting things I encounter!

For many years now, I have wistfully spoken of all the places I hoped to travel. Heck, I even made a “Travel” board on Pinterest dedicated solely to pictures of everywhere I wanted to go! I would longingly flip through friends’ albums of their adventures abroad and wonder if I would ever have a chance to experience life so fully… Now, it’s finally happening!

During the past four years, I lived with the mindset that I needed to get into a top grad school program and immediately begin after graduation [this spring]. I had internalized this idea to such an extent that the prospect of deviating from it in the slightest seemed unthinkable! After speaking with some close friends about the matter, I came to see that I wasn’t as confined to that path as I’d thought. In fact, I wasn’t trapped at all! This realization opened up so many possibilities!

I have now set my intention (I’ll upload my video on setting intention as soon as I’ve figured out the set up on here) travel around Europe, starting this spring. I am thrilled that my dreams are finally coming to fruition and can’t wait to share my experiences with all of you!
