belovelive is a way of life. It is my belief system meant to be put to use every day. A spiritual lifestyle, you could say, which is focused on living a grounded, slow, ever-evolving life. In tune with nature, the seasons, and the universe. It is a life of presence + evolution + peace.
hello! i’m liz. welcome to belovelive!
i created belovelive.com in 2011, as an online diary… a way to document + process everyday moments of my life as a new expat.
after turning my life upside-down, falling in love, + moving to sweden, i wanted to document all of my exciting, new experiences of living in a foreign country + of rediscovering my soul.
throughout the past 11 years, though, this space has not only been the place to document my life, but it has transformed into the place where i have discovered my own wisdom + power through my words + images… here, i have learned how to embody my soul + align my life with the way i want to live.
i want to continually evolve + become. i want a life with magic + meaning. one that is slow, intentional, authentic, wild + sacred. i want to be of use. for my life to make a difference. for the days that i am alive to be deep and long and to leave this world a better place after i am gone.
belovelive.com tells the story of finding myself through being, loving, and living. of learning to live a slow, wild, and sacred life in rhythm with the seasons. it is the place where i document my stories + evolution. so, welcome! i hope you find a little bit of yourself in my experiences, photos, and words; but more than anything, i hope you find a bit of inspiration.
BE: the inner journey
Nature-inspired spirituality for grounding down + turning inward.
Wild, earthy, cosmic. Rhythmic, cyclical, evolutionary. Contemplative, silent, solitary. Sun, moon, stars. Forests, mountains, seas. Meditation, rituals, oracles.
LOVE: the sacred center
Home is where the heart is. The center sanctuary of the soul that creates balance + supports presence.
A seasonal home. Slow, simple, mindful living. Creative, inspiring, balanced. Books, music, art. Food, drinks, gatherings. Incense, oils, self care. Lagom, hygge, fengshui. Minimal, bohemian, urban.
LIVE: the outward journey
Fill your life with meaning. Explore + connect with this sacred world. Make a difference by simply being you.
Travel, inspiration, education. Culture, art, history, Religion, politics, justice. Community, diversity, equality. Global + local.
For years, I tried to make this a linear, chronological, staircase way of life: Step 1: be. Step 2: love. Step 3: live. And then you’re there. But that’s not at all how this lifestyle is meant to be lived.
Instead, this way of life is circular, cyclical, spiral. It is truly a way of living in rhythm with the cycles + seasons of nature. It is a constant balancing of being, loving, and living. A constant journey of turning inward, centering, and turning outward again. All of which happen both simultaneously + individually. All of which build on each other, influence each other, and inspire each other.
The goal, or the purpose, of this lifestyle is the journey itself. In others words, there is no goal. The meaning + purpose of it all is found in every single moment of life. The way is the way. Every day. Every experience. Every moment. That is what makes up a life. And this website is meant to be a place where I, where we, can discover together what it means to live a spirit-filled, soulful life, wild + free + connected + present.
The belovelive lifestyle is one that is all about becoming who we are meant to be, finding love + meaning through a slow, mindful everyday life in rhythm with the seasons. And allowing our lives to evolve + inspire the world.
And that, sweet soul, is what I hope you are inspired to do in this space: simply become more + more of who you have always been meant to be.
This is the cyclical nature of a belovelive lifestyle: We are co-creators, connected to God, the earth + the cosmos + each other, living + discovering who we are meant to be… and contributing our unique souls to the universe’s unfolding + evolving towards greater + greater love. We, as unique, wild, beautiful individuals are a part of this great, divine, sacred circle of life. Meant to live our own truth for the sake of the world. And we do it all through simply being present. Do you hear the call? And will you respond?
