Just wanted to share another update of our travels. I have not been posting much as you know due to little to no internet and when we do have some its catch up time or time with special friends. This journey is really showing me to be fully present in the moment, trust and be in the flow.
Just on the magic we have been creating I could write so many posts alone!!
Just had to play with some photos!! 🙂
At the same time, when I see what I see going on in the Southern States I have a heavy heart. The crappy food, so much plastic, very overweight people, the speed people are driving AND many of them being on their phones while doing so, being at beaches and watching people be on their phones, the mega malls, the desolate buildings and towns.
Yet despite all of that I have been able to meet some amazing people, open people’s eyes up to some of the crap going on especially around food, emf’s, do more Yoga and take some great photos and yes more of women in the nude are coming – I can’t wait to dive into this project more and more as the more I talk with women the more I know this is so needed!!
We also met some amazing people living their bliss!! And deepened friendships with people already in our lives and on the same path!!
Gulf Breeze Florida
We have been blessed to be on some of the most beautiful beaches in Florida (and we hit many!!), to catching some great views and music in.
Texas – Prickly Pear
New Orleans, to beautiful canyons in Texas (no snakes thank goodness but some great nude shots!!) and now we are in New Mexico – my first time and I can’t wait to take more photos.
Me in Palo Duro Texas
I can’t wait to share more info and images – so please keep coming back!!
My Photography site is being worked on as we speak – there will be many more photos there shortly!!
Lighthouse – Palo Duro Texas
I am so grateful for being able to travel, share great healthy things and taking photos – may you be so blessed as well!!
Thank you for stopping by!!
PS – While we have been on our travels we have lost a few friends, one close, some more acquaintances, doesn’t matter – they were all amazing people and life is too short NOT to be living your bliss, your dharma, your passions – full of vitality, love and not giving a rats ass of what others think (as long as it doesn’t harm anyone or anything!!)
Just wanted to update you on where David and I are on their road trip!
Wow the last couple of weeks have been busy, have had some great things happening, met some amazing people, and am seeing how the weather is in Florida in the summer – lets say it’s hot and a storm almost every day due to such humidity so the lightening shows have been amazing!!
We have also had some personal things go on that have not been pleasant like getting news of a friend passing rather suddenly and a few other things that knock the wind out of you even though they are part of life – not the pleasant part.
Yoga on the Beach
We have been on a road trip for a month now, very little internet and no data on my phone – being Canadian down in the USA I just refuse to pay a big cell phone bill – so I can’t go on the internet as often and it’s made me realize how much I did go on the internet and Facebook and wasted time. I’ve also found a phone that is coming out soon that I can’t wait to share – 5G, in 122 countries that has unlimited talk, text and roaming plus 52 gigs of data a month all for $49………..I love disruptors and being a forward thinker!!
Taking time daily to nurture self and diving into yoga deeper (wearing the Firma Wear I just started carrying and I love love this clothing line!!
We were also at the Purium convention in early August in Orlando. To be honest I am not a big convention person personally – too many people and usually too much hype and bling type of shows which I’m just not into yet this was different. I have always loved Purium and the products – live, organic and non-gmo greens and superfoods which are so needed today (I will go into more later on what sets these products a part because there is a huge difference). Yet to hear that they are now switching (or will be as containers run out) to totally biodegradable packaging that is made from hemp, bamboo and tree resin as well as the little sample packs made my heart sing – a totally conscious company. Not to mention that in April at David Sandoval’s oasis there will be an Unconventional open to the public that really is of this tribe and to vendors who want to do healing work, sell their goods (no competition with Purium of course) and join in the fun – now how cool is that??
We’ve been spending time either at David’s mom’s place or my dad’s winter place both without internet – so the clubhouses have them, it’s not bad sitting by the pool side let me tell you!! Yet it’s just not as convenient – but if that is the only issue I am so fine with that!
We have caught sunrises at the beach, talked with a 97 year old man who’s reading books on how to live over 100 years – his secret – NO sugar or processed foods, daily sardines, plant based way of eating with meat once a month, 6 almonds, 1 cashew and 1 walnut daily plus he walks twice a day about 2 miles each time and has a wonderful attitude!!
Have sampled a few different beaches on the East Coast and the Gulf side of Florida – stopping by health food stores and having some great conversations with healthy like minded individuals. Attended some talks, found an amazing conscious, organic and non-gmo restaurant that had delicious food and ambience – I share that as we seldom go out to eat – while travelling most places to stop for food or restaurants are just crap – it’s really not food and we’re so used to creating our own dishes even while travelling and doing picnics we are actually spoiled now.
There really is such a huge difference between eating and feeding the body that once you are doing it you can never go back!!
Also because of some of the curve balls that have been thrown at us lately – deepening our relationship, our communication and really supporting one another through a few difficult times has been an incredible journey as well.
This time with little internet has let me dive deeper into me, my dreams, my fears, my goals, etc and what has been holding me back from truly creatively expressing who I am.
Dove into a great book and have to share it, it’s title is ‘When Did You Die?’ and you can read a free chapter here at www.Templeahyes.com – the book was a gift for David but I truly believe it was for me and now can’t wait to meet Temple – what an incredible lady!!
The reality is for me I now realize is that life is short, life is precious and we are not meant to struggle – if you are not loving what you are doing you have choice choose something else and choose it fast why waste your time – trading each minute, hour and day living a lie, doing things you don’t like doing, being miserable, hating life or people or what you are doing and needing to numb yourself through food, alcohol, drugs or anything else.
Life is getting me high – between eating clean and pure, digging up the roots that took me down a path of self destruction through an eating disorder and with it partying in my earlier years I lost a big part of me and never felt good enough……..not any longer……for the first time in my life I am actually connecting with my heart and true source.
I look forward to sharing more.
I also look forward to catching up with some women in the near future and continuing on with my project – the world needs us all to shine our light – are you ready??
A couple of weeks ago I took my kids down to visit and help celebrate my dad’s birthday in Florida.
It was perfect timing as we all could use a break, and in less than a week my son boards the plane to take off on travels to Europe for at least 3 months………mixed emotions on that one!!
I brought along some photos to work on but I could not get them uploaded – too big and I could not down load any program to make them smaller. I then found out about Mercury Retrograde and decided to sit back and totally relax and do NO work what so ever. I needed that! The one cool thing about that was having a side biz that payed for it all and was still working even though I wasn’t!! 🙂
Here are a couple of pics from a couple of things we did besides hand out at the pool, beach and enjoy the sun and hot weather!!
Went on this cool walk through a reserve where there were tons of different birds, Eagles, Turtles and Alligators.
Went on an Air Boat ride – first time I will admit and if you get the chance – go for it – it was a blast!! The day we booked it though it was a tad chilly then in the boat, well it was cool and yes that is in Florida in the Everglades!!
Yes we were looking for Gators – this is with my zoom lens.
No Zoom here, he was close……about 30 feet long and apparently he won’t bother us……….I didn’t take the chance!!
Sharing a moment with my dad on his 70th – he’s looking pretty good I think!!
Took in some coastal pier shopping.
Enjoyed many beautiful Sunsets!!
Best of all shared many laughs and created wonderful memories!!
Do days go by, or weeks maybe even years……and you find yourself doing the same old same old?
Are you happy doing what you’re doing?
Do you drive the same way to work, eat the same breakfast or lunch every day, or is every Tuesday chicken and rice night, you know what I mean??
Took a little trip down to Florida for a few weeks, had some r & r, good times and my sister, Steph, and I decided to try Para Gliding…..something I always wanted to do. She asked and we were in the pick up van within 15 mins on our way.
If you ever thought about doing it….DO IT!!!!
Us taking off.
Going up higher and farther away!!
Looking down……ok I will admit, the people that went up before us and when I saw how high up they were, I got thinking WTH??
But I didn’t let that stop me, besides 5 kids way younger than me did it!!
It was so calm, quiet and peaceful up there it was amazing!!
YES it was fun!!!
Do I look scared??
How can you challenge yourself today?
Or would you just like to add it to your bucket list??
