I wanted to wait until it was completely healed before posting a picture, but look what I got when I made my first stop in Albuquerque?!

If you know me/ have followed my blog for any length of time, you know that my journey hasn’t always been easy. I have had alot of obstacles and alot of broken dreams. Perhaps it was my religious upbringing, focused on rules and perfection that has caused this sort of obsession with freedom. It seems to be the common theme through all of my travels and past endevors.

But I have come to realize that freedom is greater than dance, minimalism, driving a motorcycle, living in an airstream or even traveling on the road… real freedom is internal. It’s something I’m still very much learning, but I believe it’s what I’ve truly been seeking all along. To love, to have an open heart, connectedness, to recognize that everything I need I can pull from within.

I want to experience as much of life as I can and to share light and love with others, but no matter where I end up, or what I do or don’t accomplish, I will remember the deeper meaning. Freedom is greater than all my other broken dreams, and it is something that cannot be taken away from me.
