Returning to the States recently hasn't been the easiest thing for me. My soul feels much more at peace in Asia. Constantly being surrounded by heart-warming smiles from the locals. Generally moving at a slower pace, as everything does in that particular part of the world, meaning my ability to be present with and appreciative of whatever or whomever is in front of me has greatly increased. Having views of some of the world's most magnificent beaches, waterfalls, caves, mountains, ancient temples and tiny, humble villages everywhere I turn. BEING rather than doing. All of these things will have that soul-nourishing effect, I suppose. This isn't me bragging, this is me sharing what's helped me to heal over the past year and a half. This is me saying I'm no one special. I worked my ass off for years to save money, decided I wanted to discover more of myself and the world around me after some of the absolute worst years of my life, decided to book a ticket and follow my dreams. I stayed dedicated to volunteering and traveling, even when I faced incredibly difficult challenges almost 20,000 miles away from everyone and everything I've ever known. Even when circumstances were terrible, because overall, I knew it made me feel more ALIVE and FREE than I've ever felt in my life. That's what we all want, right? To feel more peaceful, alive and free? Adjusting to living in white-walled boxes in a country whose citizens are so disconnected from each other, so much less generous and joyful in life, who are too busy consuming too much and barely care to talk about things that actually matter... has been strange and unsettling to say the least. "Its funny how things in life are just timed. Not necessarily good timing, but just timing. There is always a reason why we feel pulled towards certain decisions, and even stronger reasons why we are pushed to making those decisions. There is no good or bad decision, only the way you deal with its consequences. I had never planned on coming back, even for a short period of time, but somehow, a crazy inexplicable force in the Universe has a way into influencing the things we do and its up to us to decide how we want to see them."

Thousands of monks meditate at the site of the Monday's bombing in Bangkok, Thailand. Thankfully, everyone I know in Bangkok is alive and safe. 💜 After all of my family's losses recently, I was not prepared to lose any of my friends or family across the globe as well. Feeling extremely grateful my local loved ones are okay, and sending love and prayers to the families of those less fortunate. 🙏🏼 I've woken up feeling intensely aware of the fragility of life and the closeness of death more than ever these last few months. Trying to not take a single moment for granted...

When the moon makes her appearance over the city before quietly disappearing into the horizon... Like a mother whispering softly to her children "sweetest dreams, my loves." 🌙

Have you ever let a cow suck your fingers? It feels like an extremely slimy vacuum engulfing your hand. It's disgusting and weird and really sweet at the same time and I absolutely love it. 😎

I am watching the most beautiful sunset tonight. When I look directly above me I see the royal blue sky, and as my gaze lowers closer to the horizon, that royal blue turns paler and paler, until it melts into a cool sea foam green. There is a layer of orange and pink directly above the horizon. Splashes of clouds are painted across the sky like water colors. A swoosh here and there and everywhere. The very top of the clouds are colored a deep lavender, which turns into fluorescent pink and orange, reminding me of bright tropical flowers. The whole sky looks like a giant rainbow with blues and greens in the background, and red, orange and violet coloring the foreground. It is fucking magnificent. No photo could do this justice. Nor can words adequately describe the divine work of art that just unfolded in front of my eyes like the bud of a wildflower ready to blossom. I am so grateful for the sun! Giver of life and light. Two things I long to be full of as I long as my ever expanding heart is beating. I almost gave my beating heart away, but as I leapt, the universe's loving net full of grace appeared and saved me from darkness, casting me into the light. Over the last few years I've been shedding layers, layers, layers. I will continue to let waves crash over me and polish my sensitive soul. I will continue to allow my edges to soften. I will remain open, honest, vulnerable, authentic and therefore at great risk of having my heart ache again and again. But I will keep opening. I will keep embracing these cracks that are the manifestation of a healing heart, because I've learned somewhere along the way 'there is a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in.'

“Mountains seem to answer an increasing imaginative need in the West. More and more people are discovering a desire for them, and a powerful solace in them. At bottom, mountains, like all wildernesses, challenge our complacent conviction - so easy to lapse into - that the world has been made for humans by humans. Most of us exist for most of the time in worlds which are humanly arranged, themed and controlled. One forgets that there are environments which do not respond to the flick of a switch or the twist of a dial, and which have their own rhythms and orders of existence. Mountains correct this amnesia. By speaking of greater forces than we can possibly invoke, and by confronting us with greater spans of time than we can possibly envisage, mountains refute our excessive trust in the man-made. They pose profound questions about our durability and the importance of our schemes. They induce, I suppose, a modesty in us.” ― Robert Macfarlane

Henry Wrinkler comes to our neighbor's ranch every year to fish for a couple weeks, just on the opposite side of the same river that flows through our backyard. He was around when I took this photo, but I never got to say hello. The wonderful couple who owns Fish On gets tons of guests each year, but friends like Henry don't pay a dime to stay and enjoy their gorgeous ranch in Centennial valley. Love me some generous and humble small town folk. 💜

Climbed to the top of Wyoming's most beautiful 1.4 billion year old granite outcrops for this view! Every time I take a few moments to soak up the scenery around me in the unique rolling hills of this gorgeous state, I can't help but think of the Native Americans who consciously and respectfully took care of these lands with their minds, hearts and souls for thousands of years. They never took from Mother Earth without giving back. They never dreamt of the death of billions of sacred creatures or the poisoning and destruction of our ecosystems, the very systems that have sustained life for millions of years. They saw the divinity and value in every sentient being, whether they be plants, animals or humans. Now the ones who took their place only seem to find value in shiny plastic things and the right-angled white boxes they live and work and drive in day after day... We can do better, friends. Our generation MUST do better!

I am not the woman I used to be. And do you want to know why? It's not because I have suddenly lost my mind. It's not because I have been fooled, or have grown bitter. I am not lost or wandering down the road that leads to destruction. On the contrary: I am not the woman I used to be because she didn't know how to be herself. The woman I used to be was blood-soaked in religious piety. She woke up with unexplained anxiety attacks every morning. She floated around the room with a sunflower tucked in her hair, blending like a chameleon into the walls. The same walls that eventually imprisoned her. The woman I used to be was everything you needed her to be. She was everything you wanted her to be. She made you feel what you wanted to feel. The woman I used to be had no clue who she was. So don't say you feel sad for me. For who I'm becoming. For where I am going. I am FREE. Do you understand that? I am free, and I am digging into the furthest reaches of my psyche and soul to learn what it means to be. I am in my own skin, alive, and loving more wildly than I've ever loved before; with honesty; from a true knowing. I am seeing the world with peeled-back eyes. I am loving with an unchained mind. I am unbolted, sprinting hard away from anything that aims to control. This is not a phase, this is my life. I will dance with skeletons at the bottom of black seas to set myself free. I will move through the forest, under a canopy of moonlight and trees, to set myself free. I will drink the tears of the aching world to learn what it is to love. I will tell you the truth when I make mistakes. I will ask for forgiveness, and weep until shame breaks. I will live free. {Words by @tntrivett, who seemingly writes directly from my soul.} 🙏🏼

Wyoming's wild horses... This state has one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world! (That's saying a lot, because you all know how obsessed with Asia I am.) I'm so grateful to have shared a beautiful home with a few generous souls in a town of 300 people in Centennial valley this summer. 🙏🏼 It was the perfect place to experience such a gorgeous area. 😁 Wyoming comes with endless views of sweeping landscapes, rolling hills, snow-capped mountains, rainbows of wild flowers, the craziest clouds you've ever seen and tons of horses, deer, cows, bears, and antelope all around (and sometimes moose, elk, bison and ram). 🌾 I could go on and on, but I'll try to show you through pictures instead... I've got about 10,000 of them to go through. 😳

Live and let live. Love people, especially for their perceived flaws, because they're only providing a mirror for us and giving us opportunities to grow and learn new things about connecting to ourselves & the world around us each day. Our quality of life works in direct correlation with the quality of our relationships, and we all do better when we allow others to be themselves and find their own way. As a constant work in progress and nowhere near perfect, this is something I try to stay consciously aware of at all times. Sometimes I do really well and sometimes I fail miserably, but thankfully we are given the gift of LIFE and therefore the opportunity to start over at literally every moment of the day. Feeling grateful for all of the life changing connections I've experienced in this lifetime, good and bad. Thank you for making me a better person and being a part of my journey. Sending love to you all, wherever you are in the world!

Dolma and Yangchen from Children of the Universe orphanage in Kathmandu, Nepal sent me a very sweet THANK YOU for the individuals who have sent prayers and especially donations, helping me to raise nearly $1,700 for them, since the earthquake destroyed their home that housed 45 orphaned children in April. They have seen many tough days since that horrible quake in April that left hundreds of thousands of Nepalese dead, injured and displaced from their destroyed homes. They have spent many nights outside sleeping in the pouring rain while earthquakes, aftershocks and landslides continue to happen during monsoon season. They've faced the challenge of sleeping in tents with dropping temperatures and more rain, living without toilets or a plumbing system temporarily, not having access to clean water and adequate food consistently, and a number of other problems for over three months now, while waiting patiently for enough money to begin rebuilding their home (which will cost upwards of $30,000... The average income in Nepal is about $100/month for a male, about half that for a female, and remember all of these kids are still in school and not working.) Most orphanages rely entirely on the kindness and generosity of more financially secure people around the world, and Children of the Universe is no different. We've got a lonnnggg way to go in fundraising, but I'm dedicated to supporting these children for the long haul! Your continued support is highly appreciated while these kids undoubtedly face one of the most difficult experiences of their lives. Nepal needs our help to rebuild tens of thousands of lost homes and to secure necessities such as clean water, food and shelter. Those of us who don't have to worry about where we are getting our next meal or where we are sleeping tonight owe it to our fellow brothers and sisters across the world who desperately need our help to share what we have more than enough of. Every single dollar helps, no donation is too small! Thank you sooo much for helping us out, guys! Remember whatever you give you inevitably receive in return, that's just how the Universe works.😁

Dolma and Yangchen from Children of the Universe orphanage in Kathmandu, Nepal sent me a very sweet THANK YOU for the individuals who have sent prayers and especially donations, helping me to raise nearly $1,700 for them, since the earthquake destroyed their home that housed 45 orphaned children in April.

    @apinkpassport yes, yes they are. We've got so many generous souls who donated to thank! Definitely couldn't have provided as much financial support without their help. :)
