Writing a memoir is challenging, but fun, healing and so worth it!

The whole world was on my shoulders, now it's different.

The whole world was on my shoulders, now it’s different.

This is the first time I haven’t felt the urge to leave Toronto after 3months. And it feels amazing!

Writing my book in 3 months, has been very inspiring, motivating and encouraging to keep me put in one place. It’s one of three books, as my life, as many know is quite extensive, complex and many have said in this life time I’ve lived like 50 lives. I can handle it and it’s no surprise.

I cover topics like my childhood, my relationships with myself, my dad, my lovers, the many people I’ve connected with in school, travels, different communities all over the world and my relationship with food!

When I write, I’m uncensored and totally raw, and that’s how my book is expressed. I’m so excited to publish it in 3 weeks! I can’t wait to share it with the world. My recipes are easy, fun and colourful too and the pictures of my travels and recipes are a story in themselves.

I want to thank all those who have been super supportive on facebook, in person and via email. I love you all and without you this book couldn’t blossom so smoothly.

Talk about surrendering, trusting, letting go and going with the flow. Oh ya! Writing a book was the answer for me to heal my past.

Want to release some past ties? Write a book! You don’t have to publish it, it can be for yourself and/or family and there are free ways online to make that happen. 🙂
Blessings and Light,

Being a Woman Rocks Part 3: It’s fun to be silly and “superficial” sometimes

I admit that I’ve been feeling like something has been missing in my life for the past 2 years. I thought maybe it was a romantic partner, and maybe it is, but then last week something wonderful and so playful happened and it hit me right smack in the face! BEING AROUND LUSCIOUS, JUICY, VIBRANT, TOTALLY FEMININE WOMEN! I require this more frequently not just in theory and thought.

I had the most amazing day with these two young, bodacious, playful and very feminine American girls who were guests at the retreat center I’m working at in Costa Rica at the moment. I joined them on their organized tour to a jungle and then to the beach and then Shopping!

These girls really know how to express themselves, not just through what they wear, but also how they act and their choice of expression. The way they speak, the things they say and do and the energy they project, very girly and playful, very refreshing and childlike.

Oh what fun! I haven’t felt so silly, playful and just childlike like that in so long. I even loved going shopping with them, something I haven’t enjoyed completely since I used to go to malls in my early teens and actually enjoyed doing so.

Superficial or not, I had fun and I was reminded of how amazing it is to be a woman and to be able to express one’s femininity through clothing, makeup, walking, talking, shopping, gossiping, laughing, talking about sex, love, fights, breakups, jobs, friends and family.

Sometimes it’s nice just to hear about “superficial” stories that are silly and maybe not so important/relevant, but they are someone’s reality and sometimes fun and exciting to engage in.

I limited myself to mostly “quality” conversations and interacted with “more mature” people, but I felt myself getting too serious doing this. I don’t want to limit myself to just one kind of community. If I’m to make a bigger impact on the world, than the one I’ve already made, I desire to interact with everyone on an equal level of essence. So the Universe graciously sent these lovely fun lively angels my way! yay!
