Embrace all of your imperfectly perfect qualities

My friend Zack Gudzan (@cltivate) I were discussing realness, and how telling all sides of your life, the good/the bad/the ugly can touch people in different ways. So, I committed to him to start sharing all sides of me to hopefully reach the people that need it most.
I am all about good vibes. I love quotes, supporting/lifting people up, and I very rarely post anything that is not sunshine and rainbows, but let’s be honest, life isn’t always sunshine and rainbows. The things I post are to lift/motivate myself every day and I put it out into the world hoping to do the same for others.

Tracks
I have bad days, I cry, I get overwhelmed, I ask myself ALL THE TIME if I am on the right path; but what I am shown time and time again, the more I put myself out there and get uncomfortable and open my heart to life, the more goodness will be brought into my life. When I turn my fears and doubts into love and trust, the more people/signs/opportunities keep presenting themselves to me that I’m on the right path. Some days are better than others. Most days I’m able to take on the world, and some days are challenging and it’s a struggle to make it through the day without bursting into tears from the weight I carry for feeling everything so very deeply.


Anyhow, what I’m saying is, even with dark days life can still be amazing. I’ve been on my own since I was 15 and my life has been a long, dark, uphill battle. I have been beaten and broken, physically/verbally/mentally. Everyone is fighting their own battle. Most of them are trying to do the best they can with what they have and don’t always realize that they take their things out on people that don’t deserve it. I make a choice to be thankful for each new day and look on the bright side of every situation. It isn’t always easy, but I promise you that it is so worth it. I am here for you. I understand where you are. Whatever it is, I am here for you. If you need someone to talk to, reach out. If I am not the best person to help you with your particular situation, I promise to connect you with someone that can help.


You are beautiful, just the way you are. So embrace all of your imperfectly perfect qualities

_____________________________________________
2016: Take care of business by taking care of you. This is my resolution, my intention, my affirmation of the year. I take care of business by taking care of me. I’ve been working to the point of draining myself all throughout the past year. There is always so much to do, so much to create. No time to stop working.
2016. I choose to stand in my own power – with love. This year is for setting roots. For slow, steady movement. For being in one place. For loving my body. For abundance, for trust, for releasing resentment anchored in the past. For appreciating every moment of every day. For being instead of becoming. For my tribe. Thank you life for the lessons. For the beauty. For the love.

Start Your Day with a Smile – 10 steps to a Happy Life

Haha 😜 Forgive my sidewaysness. My camera was not cooperating but I wanted to give you all some Monday motivation ☀️ We talk about happiness as if it were a thing to be discovered/ acquired. But happiness isn't found externally. It is not a possession to be acquired or a set of conditions, but a state of mind. The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything, but they have learned to make the best of what they have. Happy people aren't necessarily focused on success or failure but live by a different perspective, and that outlook makes all the difference. Here are some step to help you live a happy life: 1. Begin your day with a smile 😊. 2. Think Happy Thoughts and look for the positive all around you. Even if you have to squint, I promise there is good in every day. 3. Prioritize what's important. If your life and expectations reflect what matters the most to you, chances are you're fairly happy. When your goals conform to your personal priorities, they bring you a higher level of satisfaction. 4. Don't compare yourself with others. Many of our feelings of satisfaction or dissatisfaction have their roots in how we compare ourselves with others. When we compare ourselves with those who have more, we feel bad. When we compare ourselves with those who have less, we feel grateful–and sometimes undeserving. Measure yourself only against your own values and goals. 5. Never stop learning. Never stop growing. Happy people never stop learning and adapting. The world will always be changing, and the ability to learn new skills and respond well to change is central to happiness. 6. Believe in yourself. You are awesome! You wouldn't write off a friend during a bad time, or tell family members they're worthless because something didn't work out for them. Treat yourself as well as you'd treat others. Happiness starts with our thoughts and ripples down to our behavior. If you want happiness in your life, stop looking for it in achievements and circumstances and start developing the mindset of happy people. 💗🎉 I have too many words to fit into Instagram find the full post details on my blog in bio 👍🏽 #cltselfie #SkyViewDentistry

We talk about happiness as if it were a thing to be discovered/ acquired.

But happiness isn’t found externally. It is not a possession to be acquired or a set of conditions, but a state of mind.

The happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of everything, but they have learned to make the best of what they have.

Happy people aren’t necessarily focused on success or failure but live by a different perspective, and that outlook makes all the difference.

Here are some step to help you live a happy life:

1. Begin your day with a smile 😊.

It’s hard to be sad, angry or anything other than happy whenever you have a smile on your face. It may feel weird at first but I promise it’ll turn your day around… And brighten other people’s day as well.

2. Think Happy Thoughts and look for the positive all around you. Even if you have to squint, I promise there is good in every day.  Unhappy people spend time thinking about unpleasant events in their lives, while happy people tend to seek and rely upon information that brightens their personal outlook. Finding reasons to be happy builds happiness.

3. Judge your wins and failures the same.

Ultra competitive people who always need to win are usually unable to find joy in everyday events. If they lose they are disappointed, and if they win they want more. The happiest people don’t judge themselves by their wins and failures; they take them as they come without attaching too much importance to them. Either way there is a lesson to be learned and there is always room for improvement for the next round.

4. Prioritize what’s important.

If your life and expectations reflect what matters the most to you, chances are you’re fairly happy. When your goals conform to your personal priorities, they bring you a higher level of satisfaction.

5. Don’t compare yourself with others.

Many of our feelings of satisfaction or dissatisfaction have their roots in how we compare ourselves with others. When we compare ourselves with those who have more, we feel bad. When we compare ourselves with those who have less, we feel grateful–and sometimes undeserving. Measure yourself only against your own values and goals.

6. Cultivate meaningful relationships.

Relationships are built on mutual appreciation, and the exchange of love and affection creates positive energy for both people. Rekindle dormant relationships and take every chance to expand your friendship base. (If you ever have a little time, read “The five love languages”. It might give you a different outlook on life and help you understand your friends, family, partner, strangers, co-workers a little better, and why they act and operate the way that they do)

7. Invest in diversity.

Just as you wouldn’t limit your organization to a single project, don’t put all yours dreams/goals on a single event or element of your life. Whether it’s a promotion at work, a relationship, or a personal achievement… Build your dreams and goals around the things that are most important to you and allow yourself to benefit from the different ways they contribute to your life.

8. Never stop learning. Never stop growing.

Happy people never stop learning and adapting. The world will always be changing, and the ability to learn new skills and respond well to change is central to happiness.

9. Do what you say you’re going to do.

Nothing deadens your enthusiasm like a half-completed project or a neglected commitment. Even if you find yourself in a dead-end situation, keep your commitments and tie up any loose ends before you get out.

10. Believe in yourself. You are awesome!

You wouldn’t write off a friend during a bad time, or tell family members they’re worthless because something didn’t work out for them. Treat yourself as well as you’d treat others.

Happiness starts with our thoughts and ripples down to our behavior. If you want happiness in your life, stop looking for it in achievements and circumstances and start developing the mindset of happy people. 💗🎉

Aspire to inspire before you expire

Aspire to inspire before you expire. When words are both true and kind they can change the world. Be with the people and go to the places that set a spark within you. If it doesn’t nourish your mind, body and soul…get rid of it. When you’re worried and cannot sleep, count your blessings instead of your sheep. Not one drop of your self-worth should depend on acceptance from others. Stop letting people who do so little for you control so much of your mind, feelings and emotions. Do not worry about competing, focus on working as a team, be a giver…a giver of love, a giver of good vibes and a giver of strength. The whole world is yours! Take each day as it comes. Wherever you are, be all there and you will weather well. Go everywhere, be brave, strong and free. Keep your eyes and ears and heart wide open. Look for the good around you, even if you have to squint. If you ever feel small, be still, breathe deep, life is beautiful and so are you. Dance to the music of your dreams, the steps will bring you joy

Now is the time….

Image

Now is the time….The time to wonder, the time to hope, the time to dream. Now is the time to look ahead to a future full of adventure and opportunity, and all the best life has to offer. Whether you realize it or not, you are sensational. In a world where most settle for the ordinary, you reach for the extraordinary. You’ve got your own style, your own sense of self. You know who you are and where you’ve come from, and you can go anywhere and be anything you want. Always remember to not let fear get in the way, take risks and try new things. When you go out on a limb and say, “This is my Dream,” the universe rushes in to help turn your dreams into reality. It is as if the perfect coincidences and right opportunities and most vital information have all been waiting for you to make a move.

Sometimes results appear all at once. At other times they trickle in gradually and gently. It takes faith and genuine desire to step out onto that limb…but once you’re ready and you make that choice nothing can stop your dream from coming true. It is only when you stretch your boundaries that you can grow and discover who you really are and what you’d really like to do. Dream BIG! Be Happy! Never compromise on the things that really matter to you. This is your life! Make it what you want it to be. Dream your own dream and follow your own star. There wouldn’t be a sky full of shimmering starts if we were all meant to wish on the same one. There will always be dreams grander or humbler than your own, but there will never be a dream exactly like yours, for you are unique and more wondrous than you know.

Do your best. There are no shortcuts on the way to a dream. Give all that you have to all that you do, and above all things, believe in yourself. Grow with each new day, work hard, face difficulties with determination and confidence. You will always be a winner, not because you never loose, but because you are always willing to give new things a try. No matter what happens today or tomorrow, you’ll come out on top. Stay on track and you’ll accomplish whatever you set out to do. Imagine all of your tomorrows as empty pages for you to fill any way you desire. What dreams will come reality? What surprises will you find? What stories will you live? Imagine the future you want and get out there and live it!

I took the road less traveled…

I am very excited! Bridges Magazine  published a new article featuring some of my @travling_gypsy adventures – http://www.bridges-mag.com/?p=464

Couchsurfing – the New Alternative Way of Exploring for this “Traveling Gypsy”

For some, traveling abroad is a scary thought. For others, it’s a dream. For Sydney Duarte, 26, it’s a way of life. Wandering to and fro from continent to continent is how this self-proclaimed thrill-seeker gets her kicks. Making her rounds in a nomadic style is a pastime all too common for this former Boyd County resident.

Charlotte, N.C., is where she now makes her strides, selling art in several studios across town. Her specialty: photo blocks and jewelry inspired from her journeys.

“I was the girl who kept 50 disposable cameras in my backpack during high school just to make sure I captured as many memories as possible”.

Beginning at age six, her love for travel was sparked by shows like Wild on E and those on the Discovery Channel.

“I started saving money for my first international trip to Guatemala working as a bill collector and as a pizza delivery girl,” Duarte said. “This is where my dad was born, so it seemed like a good place to start.”

After returning home, the travel bug ensued. She began planning her next trip to Thailand, this time accompanied by a friend. The thirst for new horizons became unquenchable. Realizing that globe-trotting is not everyone’s forte, she began seeking alternate methods of travel.

“I got tired of waiting on other people to go with me, so I began couchsurfing”.

Couch Surfing in New Zealand

Simply put, couchsurfing is an online community of people all around the world who open their homes and hearts to visitors who want to experience a country from the local point of view. Besides providing food and shelter, your host doubles as a personal tour guide, giving you the scoop on the city’s ins and outs. You’ll be advised on the best travel routes, treated to the best food and taken to the hottest local scenes.

“Couchsurfing provides you with other people who have the same outlook on life,” Duarte said. “You make life-long friends and I keep in touch with every single person I have stayed with along the way.”

She couchsurfs everywhere she goes, always lining up two or three people as back up and traveling with her tent in case something falls through.

Her first couchsurfing experience was a trip to the Encierro, home to the world-famous Running of the Bulls during the seven-day festival of Sanfermines in Spain. Accompanied by her brother, the two camped out and couchsurfered while visiting the event.

“This was the biggest rush of adrenaline I’ve ever experienced”.

Next came a trip to Europe. She couchsurfed her way across Germany, France, Italy, and Switzerland.

The third and most recent couchsurfing experience turned into a seven-month expedition. She covered New Zealand, Australia, Bali, Singapore, South Africa, Madagascar, Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Peru and Guatemala.Playing with the elephants inTango in Buenos Aires, Argentina

“This took a lot of coordination,” Duarte said. “Madagascar was my favorite. It seems as though your gone 100 years back in time. The women still wash their clothes in the rice fields.”

Volunteering during her stay is an essential part to her journeys. In Thailand she volunteered at a monk temple replacing tiles. She taught English in Madagascar, built homes in Guatemala, worked at a home for abused children in South Africa and spent time doing beach and forest conservation in Australia.

Teaching children at Aina Madagascar places first on Duarte’s list of favorites.Volunteering at Aina MadagascarTeaching english at Aina Madagascar

“These kids had no other hope for an education. They’re not like American kids. They jump at the chance to attend school. They’re excited about the opportunity to learn and know there is no better way to move forward in life than through education,” Duarte said.

To keep family and friends informed on all her adventures, she has created a blog. It is chock-full of pictures, stories and interesting facts about the places she’s visited and people she’s met along the way. When asked to describe her blog, She says it’s simply a journal that she intends to show her children one day.

Since reaching seasoned traveler status, she’s picked up a few tips and tricks to make travel much less complicated for the average person.

“Packing light is a must,” Duarte said. “I take clothes I can layer and easily change the look of. I also bring a jar of peanut butter for protein, a pack of chewable Pepto-Bismol®, a flashlight, first aid kit and my camera.”

Making sure vaccinations are up-to-date and bringing a cheat sheet of common phrases are essential. Also, bringing a sketch pad to draw pictures on just in case the language barrier proves too great can be helpful. She says if all else fails, body language is really the best communication.

For travelers on a tight budget, she offers some moneysaving tips such as bringing a reusable bottle for drinks and taking the metro or buses instead of a taxi.

“Buses are fantastic because often you strike up conversations with locals and other tourists from all over the world. I met a girl from Belgium on a 10-hour bus ride to Machu Picchu and now have a place to stay if I visit her country”.

Along with learning other languages, cultures and customs, she is quick to share several life lessons she’s picked up along the way.

“As bad as you think it is, it’s not that bad,” Duarte said. “As long as there’s a source of food and a roof/tent over your head, you’re OK!”

There’s no end to her travels anytime soon. “The more I travel, the more I realize people are pretty much the same everywhere I go, they just eat different food, wear different clothes and play different music.  ” Duarte said.

Next on the list is a trip to the eastern Caribbean and then it’s off to Finland to visit friends. Taken from an anonymous quote, she shares her mantra in hopes it will inspire others to follow in her footsteps.

“There is no end to the adventures we can have if we seek them with our eyes open.”

Happy International CouchSurfing Day!

To all of the amazing people that I’ve met along my journeys & the people I’ve met through this amazing community…One of the things I appreciate about traveling is the immediacy in which decisions and consequences play out. Also, the fact that these happen among strangers who don’t have any responsibility towards each other. There are rare moments that you meet someone who is on the same page as you and you feel like you’ve lived a lifetime together. Sometimes, you find a soul mate and it doesn’t matter if you never see them again, the experiences that you share together are unforgettable. I’ve found myself in wonderful and unexpected company and I hold each of you near & dear to my heart ♥ Each country has held new friendly faces, incredible destinations, amazing experiences, delicious (and disgusting) foods, new traditions, languages and memories. This short post is just a quick recap on my ventures over the last couple of months. Love and light to everyone that has crossed my path along the way 🙂  Happy International CouchSurfing Day!  

 

I like to move it move it! Exploring Madagascar

She is clothed in strength and dignity
and laughs without fear of the future…

I finally arrived in Toliara (Tuléar), Madagascar!!! Before I left Antananarivo I was informed that in order to get to my next stop down south (Anakao) I would have to take a 12 hour bus ride on a taxi brousse. The alleged 12 hour bus ride was actually 20 hours!! It was definitely an experience… Nobody spoke english but we sounded amazing together during our sing-alongs to Shania Twain, Rihanna, Adele, Bob Marley & the Beatles.


When nightfall came, there was a ridiculous entanglement of arms, legs & heads everywhere…it didn’t matter if you knew the person next to you or not, you were bound to know them very well by morning because everyone just positioned themselves any way that they could to get comfortable and sometimes that meant sleeping a bit on top of you. The pit stops every couple of hours couldn’t come soon enough (for those of you know me, you know I am a peeing machine!) It was nice to have a little fresh air from the musky stench of the bus and I now have a new appreciation for highway rest stops in the States. As you can see from the photos below, it’s always an adventure to go to the bathroom here. Each stop had a little restaurant as well; and you know you’ve been traveling for a while when you scoop the flies out of your soup, fling them to the side and keep on eating.

I finally got to see baobab trees before the sun set, which was a plus and tasted some good food from the masses of people that swarmed the bus at every pit stop. All in all it was a good journey.

I woke up to this amazing sunrise and knew it was going to be a great day.

The swarms of bus/taxi “agents” were buzzing around me as soon as my foot hit the ground from exiting the bus. It reminded me of the seagull scene from finding nemo, when they are fighting over the fish. Thankfully Tamby, from Aina Madagascar had arranged a taxi to pick me up from the bus station. I met my host from Anakao at the Atlantis Madagascar office. All of the boats had already left for the day to go to the island,  so we went and explored the town of Tuléar and would hop on a pyrog to sail over to Anakao bright and early in the morning 😀

We caught the “Zebu Express” to walk us across the beach in order to avoid the trash and “land mines” aka piles of human/animal feces on the beach….I know, it’s a little disgusting, but it is what it is…

There was a group of 3 friendly polish guys getting in the same pyrog for our 2 & 1/2  hour journey across the waters to Anakao. We chatted about life, places we’ve been, where we’d like to go, they invited me to Poland, so I now have a new stop for the bucket list 🙂


On the South West coast of Madagascar lies the small fishing village of Anakao. The white sand and crystal clear lagoon were very welcoming as we arrived to this absolutely stunning location!

A party was getting ready to take place to celebrate their move to this new location. I got settled into my bungalow and went back out to the common area to play the impossible game of Chinese Checkers and chat with the new gang.

The music began as the sun went down, the island locals came out of the wood work to enjoy the delicious Malagasy and French cuisine and the tasty rum punch. The men started doing their funny chicken dance and Christine, Michael and I jumped right in with them, dancing the night away.

Atlantis Madagascar is the only official PADI dive center south of Nosy Be, and everything is in place for you to  during your stay. Ryan covered all of the information and instruction for me to begin earning my  PADI certification. After a few hours of review it was time to practice what I had learned in the open water. We hopped in their dive boat that has the face of a shark painted on it. I felt free as we skimmed across the ocean with the the wind blowing through my hair. We dropped anchor at an amazing diving spot. It took me a few seconds to calm down my adrenaline and finally get under the water. It’s a strange feeling to be able to swim around underwater like a fish without having to come back up for air on a regular basis.  There were so many breathtaking views of the coral reef. Each section containing some new diverse wildlife. My camera is only made for 30ft. depths and started freezing up the further I went down, but I think I still got some decent video (above). I saw lion fish, stone fish, angel fish, clown fish, a water snake, puffer fish, parrot fish, a star fish….I actually cannon name all of the fish that we saw, one because there were soooo many and two because I am not up to date on the fish names, but either way it was amazing to be swimming with all of them. They come up to you to inspect you and see if you’re a threat of not, several of them just came and hung out by my face looking at me like “What are you doing down here? Are you a giant fish? You don’t look like a threat so I’m just going to swim around you” It was complete magic. I can’t wait to dive again!

This is the beginning of a new day. When tomorrow comes, it will be gone forever; in its place is something that you have left behind…let it be something good

This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever; in its place is something that you have left behind… let it be something good.

I have been volunteering at Aina Madagascar teaching English to the children from the  small village of Beravina, a good distance from Antananarivo. I am so amazed with the vision of this organization.  When I began planning my venture around the world, my top priority was to find organizations that were supporting a good cause that I would be able to volunteer at during my stay in each country….and that is how my story with this AMAZING organization began. I started searching the web and up popped Aina’s FaceBook page and website. I liked what I saw and the effort they had put into everything had me intrigued to learn more, and when I wrote to them they were very responsive and excited for me to come and visit, which in turn made me very excited to come and volunteer with them.

Zebu meat, rice, tomato, lasary, avacado and ro mazava. The first of many amazing meals in Beravina prepared by the Aina team. (sakafo tsara means delicious meals in Malagasy) 

It was so surreal the first day that I arrived at the school. To be able to have gone from looking at their photo albums to actually standing in the classrooms, interacting with all of the children that are so eager to learn, teaching them english, playing games with them at recess, tasting all of the DELICIOUS Malagasy food that was prepared by the Aina Madagascar team (they should open a restaurant by the way) sharing stories and experiences and life lessons, the list goes on & on. They team welcomed me with open arms and had many interesting and funny questions about the States. For example, was everyday life more like Forrest Gump or American Pie?, did we really send Neil Armstrong to the moon?, what is the minimum wage in Charlotte, population, etc? They had never had an American come and visit before, which is shocking and sad to me. I have been told this in every country that I have volunteered at so far.

I have picked up many tips and tricks along the way about culture, history, mannerisms, food and language.  Each time I travel to a new country the locals that I meet are usually under the impression that Americans are uniformed about the World that lies beyond the US borders…Unfortunately, I am beginning to think might hold a little truth. Just before I left on my trip, I had many friends and family asking me why I would travel alone?, Wasn’t I scared? What am I going to do when I get kidnapped?…(note, that wasn’t an if I get kidnapped, it was a when) The US media has brainwashed a large percentage of people to think that any place that lies beyond the US borders is dangerous.  I would like to help change that preconceived notion and help educate and inspire everyone about the World around us. Hopefully my videos and stories throughout my blog are showing those of you that are hesitant about travel that  there are still many good-hearted people out there, and soooo many amazing places to see. I want to give you the  chance to look at life in a whole new perspective… possibly inspire you to travel to a new place, because even though there a lot of dangers in this big world, staying at home, living in a bubble will not protect you. Someone could break into your home, kidnap you, steal your purse, etc. etc in your own home town. Don’t deprive yourself from experiencing life. As Mark Frost once said, “Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body. But rather, to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming …. WOW what a ride!”
The team had an amazing farewell BBQ for me. Playing traditional Malagasy music, teaching me some new dance moves, and stuffing me with more delicious traditional dishes.

It has been so incredible to work with Aina Madagascar and see how everything is moving forward for them and their plan for the future….I wish them all the best and definitely plan to be back.  If you’re looking for an unforgettable intercultural exchange experience then this wonderful school run by wonderful people is definitely the place to be. It is such a friendly and welcoming environment and the children just make your heart overflow with joy. So if you’d like a little adventure and maybe a different outlook on life I highly suggest that you call Aina Madagascar and get involved with this project.
