What leads us down our path? How do we get to where we are in any given moment? How does our path mirror our body, soul and our life’s purpose? For me, my path has been about seeking. I am a seeker of adventure, inner growth, spiritual enlightenment, healing, soul fulfillment, happiness, inner wisdom and truth. To be on this path I call my journey has meant that I needed to be true to my calling and inner knowing, no matter what. Being true to me hasn’t always been easy, especially when others around me wanted me to fulfill what they wanted me to be and do, not necessarily what was for my highest good.
