wild & carefree.



my soul is awakened, my spirit is soaring and carried aloft on the wings of the breeze.           ~ anne brontë

free spirit

the new year has got me thinkin’.

you & i, we’ve got this one life filled with moments that fly by in a flash. in just one blink of an eye, another year speeds by and time marches on. with the coming of this new year, i realize once again how blessed i am, how amazing life is, and how i want to soak up life like i’ve never done it before. i have so much for which i am thankful. so, i’ve made myself a promise. not a resolution, but a promise. something that keeps me grounded & true to myself. in 2013, i’m gonna continue to live my life to the fullest, enjoy the journey, seek out adventures, and embrace the free-spirited nature that i know & love.

and to make sure that happens, what i am seeking in 2013 is…

i wanna be fearless this year because i am free. free to be me, free to be in love with life. and i want to embrace that freedom.  to not take it for granted, but to live it. to fill the pages of my life with love, peace, and . to tell my story, to write it out every day, through my words, photos, and adventures… and to work for all people to be able to feel the freedom, love, & peace that i feel. everyone deserves to feel that they are overflowing with joy.

yes, this is my list. these are my dreams & my goals for 2013, a year that i welcome with open arms, with excitement, and with joy. a year in which i embrace my life and plan to soar high. a free-spirited year that i like to call, “lucky number 13”!


this is my commitment for 2013:

to live up to the spirit that is within me.

peace, love, & freedom.

  1. What a fabulous compilation of promises! I hope you don’t mind if I borrow routinely from your list. 🙂 Let’s all make it our best year EVER! xo

  2. Great list! More veggies is also on my list. Possibly already fulfilled by all those “naked” smoothies I’ve drank lately. do you know them? You should try them before you head back to Swedenland!
