How I Decided to Move to Costa Rica

If you asked me on New Years Day 2014 where I would be in 2015, I would have told you Europe.  Germany more specifically. After all, I was on my way to move in with my German boyfriend. To take a leap of faith for love.

If Not Now, When? Leaps of Faith

It can be scary to create something and then put it out there for the world to judge, but creating is all about leaps of faith, and leaps of faith are always worth it!

My journey of self discovery has been long and winding.  I’ve always known what I wanted and what made me happy (traveling, yoga, learning), but I was too scared to reach out or to realize I deserved more.

It took a massive breakup of a seven year relationship (no idea where that courage came from) to bust out of my shell and take on the world.  From there, it took many little faith leaps to move out of the corporate/nonprofit business world and enter the shoeless-entrepreneur-yoga-wanderer world.  This is the space I belong in.

I have no idea where this less traveled road leads, but I could not be more excited for my present moment, and for the future.  I am so glad I took the little leaps to get to this place that is such a ginormous leap from where I used to be.   Looking back on the past two years I realized I could not be happier.

I started this blog to inspire others to live the biggest dream possible, and to let others know they are not alone in their wanderlusting, yoga obsession or trying new things that scare them. It was because of spaces like this on the interwebs that I found the courage to leap out and try something new, because if you are at all like me, you love people’s personal stories stories of self discovery and inspiration.  Those moments when their life turned into something amazing. The internet is FULL of those inspirational, ‘this is so me!’ big moments, the light bulb realization a more blissful life is possible and that you CAN make a difference doing what you love.  That is what I want for this space.

Because we are all searching for contentment.  You know, to seek and work towards that elusive happiness? Turns out the happiness we look for lives in the scary place – the place just outside of our comfort zone.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”  ~Mark Twain 

But WE chose to move the line of what is our comfortable space and what is not.  So our happiness is up to us.  How cool is that?

I’m here to help you connect with what you desire most, and to leap out and take hold of that desire. No more hesitation, only inspiration and excitement.

I believe in taking leaps of faith every day, large or small, to live the juiciest life possible.  No regrets.  I’d love to know, what was your last leap of faith?

My European Leap of Faith

How my leap of faith process might help you with yours

Somewhere on the interwebs, the phrase ‘leap of faith’ is described as “an act of believing in or attempting something whose existence or outcome cannot be proved.”

For me, that is both terrifying and deeply comforting.  A dichotomy, I realize.  It also means; however, that others have searched for the term, that I’m not alone in this time of change.  The famous google search when in a moment of crisis. If you are on the precipice of making a huge decision, read on and see if the process I use is of any help.

The different types of leaps & my crazy story

cropped-cropped-iphone-sept-june-2013-11312.jpgThere are many types of ‘leaps of faith’ in all parts of life.  Hopefully, we take at least little ones every day; getting out of bed in the morning, cooking something delicious for someone you love (or to be that loved someone doing the tasting), traveling to a new city, trying yoga, or moving across the ocean.

My leap of faith involves another country. 

For me, as I write, it’s a leap of faith in moving across an ocean.  The US to Europe to be more specific. For love. And a career change. And to scratch my travel itch again. Did I mention I don’t have my visa in hand yet? Or a specific ‘job’ lined up? Or a partner that is 1000% sure we are ready for such a journey?  Nether one of us is 1000% sure – but no one ever is sure about anything under the influence of that sassy love hormone (unless you’re plain crazy, in my opinion).
