This is the perfect depiction of life on a tiny island in Indonesia. The bed is outside, while everyone sleeps on the floor inside. Laundry drying under the hot-as-hell sun. Bright & beautiful flowers growing over a fence that is falling down. A gorgeous view of the mountains in Lombok. Tons of surrounding coconut palm trees and old coconut shells scattering the ground. A bungalow made of wood and bamboo. Oh, and of course way too much plastic on the ground. :( I live in the bungalow behind this one and I love it!

Halil is one of my best friends in Lombok. His endless kindness and generosity has helped me through some challenging times here. He's been there for me when I've been sick, broke, and clueless about visa extensions. Today was the last day I'll see him because I leave Indonesia next week to begin a new chapter in my life... We were both sad about this, but I'm forever grateful for his friendship!

My 2 year old iPhone picture quality seems to be getting worse over time, but that's okay because nature still looks amazing! I ran out of storage space after I snapped this photo last night and quickly remembered how much better it is to watch a sunset without a camera in my hand... Awareness of the present moment is everything!

One of the things I love about Indonesians is that they rarely wear shoes! If they are at home or working (inside or outside), they're barefoot and connecting their feet with the Earth for most of the day. I only see them wearing shoes to walk long distances or drive the motorbike, and sometimes even then they're barefoot. It's SO important to ground and balance ourselves by touching the Earth. Nature's energy is incredibly powerful and healing, especially when one is feeling stressed or overwhelmed. Go outside today. Take off your shoes and plant your feet on the Earth. Do this for as long as you can and I promise you'll move throughout your day feeling more grounded and balanced!

My first ever mala was stolen from me (along with my backpack) while traveling a few months ago. I was super bummed because my good friend Karma Rinpoche, a Tibetan Buddhist teacher from the Himalayas of Bhutan, had gifted them to me. The rest of my jewelry, which was gifted to me by local friends in Indonesia who handmade the various pieces (including an OM necklace carved from coconut shell), were in the stolen bag as well. 😔 I have been waiting for the special time the Universe would return the mala beads and Om necklace to me, and this would be like getting both at once! Crossing my fingers. :) @laurenrudick @avignayogajewelry #avignayogajewelry

Nature, deep breaths, and awareness of the present moment... These are three of life's most astounding gifts and guarantors of happiness. I'm so grateful to have discovered this at such a young age. Presence is not easy to maintain, it is a real struggle for all of us. This is why it is a constant practice for me to connect with my body and my surroundings, and to cultivate awareness of the present moment... but I find myself more content and feeling so much better mentally, emotionally, and physically when I focus on these gifts. #anotherdayanothersunrise #natureneedsnofilter #natureheals

"Just because you think you're lost doesn't mean you are actually lost. You might be more on track than you could ever imagine." - @kuteblackson These last few days have been very rough — mentally, physically, emotionally. (Thanks, lunar eclipse in Aries!) I've cried and cried and have been fighting an internal battle with my thoughts, more so than I would like to admit... But, thanks to this graceful Universe, this morning I'm back to focusing on gratitude. Gratitude for the sunrise over Mt. Rinjani, which I can always rely on to have a beautiful start to my day. Gratitude for feelings of confusion, being lost, and not knowing. Gratitude that I have the freedom to do the things I want to do, although a lot of the time my mind tells me otherwise. Gratitude for those who have showed up and reminded me of the love and compassion that I am open to receiving when I allow myself to be vulnerable with others. Gratitude for the backlash and judgment I receive when I allow myself to be vulnerable with others as well, because it shows me with whom I should and shouldn't share my precious energy. Gratitude for local friends who make me laugh when I'm crying, even if they don't really understand why I'm upset. Gratitude for the ability to recognize and observe my desire to control the outcome of certain situations, so I can take a step back and put my trust into the Universe that all will work out exactly as it's supposed to, and for my highest good. Ahhh, so much gratitude! What are you struggling with today? What are you grateful for?

Who is ready for dinner? Yep, I'm still (mostly) vegan... But who can pass up these colorful fresh caught fish?! Not me... I don't eat any other meat and I certainly refuse to support any kind of factory farming of animals... But I'm happy to support local fishermen whose lives depend on the hours they spend on their boats each day so they can afford to feed their families. 😃

    @elzbthstrttn i just found your account and i LOVE you already! I try to be as vegan as possible but being from the Bahamas the one thing I cant cut out is fresh FISH! I follow lots of vegans for inspiration but it is SO hard to find other vegan/pescetarians, your account is such a breath of fresh air for me! Thank you for being you, rock on! :)
     
  • @elzbthstrttn (37 dni)
    @laplie41 aw, thank you so much for your kind words! Who knew this photo could have such an impact on someone like yourself... Your comment truly made my day! 😊 I don't eat much fish at all, but I just recently introduced it back into my life over the last few months. I'll only eat it if it's super fresh like this and if I know it was caught by local fisherman. Why did I change my mind about being strictly vegan? Basically, I got sick of living by someone else's rules and the dogma that surrounds veganism can absolutely get out of control sometimes. People treat it like a religion, and I certainly can't stand religion... I never, ever crave meat, but when I saw the fresh fish when I moved to this island, I simply asked myself, "veganism & labels aside, do I want this?" The answer was a resounding yes! I'm so grateful I'm at a point where I can listen to my body and not try to fit myself into a box that I'm not meant to fit into. Also, I'm living in Indonesia which is a place completely opposite of how I grew up in America. I came here to experience the culture, and food is one of the biggest influences of every culture around the world. So of course, I wanted to try local fish from the Indian Ocean while I'm on this side of the world! Bottom line - No one has to live with you except you, so always trust your instincts and do what is best for YOU! If you look back to the last couple of weeks in my posts, you'll see where I visited Germany to see my family for the first time in 18 years. You better believe I ate sooo much chocolate and ice cream while I was there, because the taste and quality are incredible - there's nothing like it in Indonesia or America. If I wasn't eating that, I was still eating tons of fresh vegetables & fruit so I tried to keep it as balanced as possible. But I knew that I wouldn't be back in Germany for a longgg time so I took advantage of my time there and made sure I enjoyed myself! Food is one life's greatest pleasures so ALWAYS enjoy yourself!
