Shape your World

Ever since I truly understood the meaning of the word Love - it's a synonym for God, Universe, Source, High Power, etc. I have been seeing it EVERYWHERE! 

Not a day will go buy where I don't see a heart shape somewhere. Be it on the sidewalk, in nature, in a store or even in an icky chewed up gum! It's incredible what you see when you expand your perception! Challenge yourself to see Love everywhere, and I guarantee you things will start popping up everywhere that are shaped like a heart. 

See the pictures below that I took! I even found a heart-shaped rock. I keep that by my bed side table as a gentle reminder of Love's presence everywhere even with me when I about to sleep. The picture of the heart on top my head was a complete 'coincidence'. I put my hair up and looked in the mirror and saw that it looked like a heart!  I laughed and said a prayer of thank you - because the Universe works in miraculous ways!

Currently I am

I haven't touched or even opened this blog since my last post in June. Over the course of this year, my interests have drastically changed and so has how I choose to express myself. My intention when I started this blog was to never become a fashion blogger. I started this blog because I love dressing, I love wearing clothes that represent who I am, I love being creative and I love love love to document my life. I've been documenting my life since I was kid, so it felt natural to continue to do as an adult. 

However, I began neglecting shifting my focus from this blog to my new website, which is very near and dear to me. I love to write, I love to make people think differently and I love learning new ways I can live a hearted-centered fulfilling life. And this is exactly what I talk about on my website: elevating consciousness and being the light. So if you dig that kind of stuff then go have a peek.

So that left me not knowing what I wanted to do with this blog or what I wanted to put on it. Fashion doesn't interest me as much as it used to before, nor does caking on a bunch of make-up. My life has simplified and I have shed a lot of things. I feel lighter, free, centered and more comfortable in my skin than I have ever before (all while wearing no make-up and really comfy clothes). 

However, I still LOVE documenting my life and taking pictures. So for now this blog will remain an online journal through which I share things I am doing, wearing, eating, seeing, learning, etc. All things that make up my story and capturing that story with words and pictures. Hope you'll stay around, connect and engage with me! For now let's talk about what I am currently: 

Making: Calligraphy inspired handwritten notes, which I want to sell at some point. So stay tuned. 

Cooking: Nothing right now, I 'cooked' some Earl Gray Green Tea earlier though. I love the smell of Earl Gray Tea if they sold it as a perfume or spray I'd totally want it! 

Reading: A Course in Miracles Workbook + Spiritual Liberation + The Law of Divine Compensation 

Wanting: Coaching clients and heart-centered conversations with people.

Missing: The nostalgia of going back to school. I've been really missing my college days. 

Drinking: Earl Gray Green Tea that I got in Boulder, CO. 

Looking: At this quote which I saw this morning:

Playing: With my hair, a habit that has stayed with me since childhood.

Giggling: Reminds me of children playing at the playground.

Wishing: Serenity and Travel.

Enjoying: My company, embracing my time I spend with myself. Something that has a lot more meaning and value to me. 

Waiting: To go on my walk along the Lake. 

Liking: The sun speaking through my windows as it sets. Its creating a warm glowing hallow in my apartment.

Wondering: If I should post my depression video (I probably will).

Loving: These summer days filled with sunshine and warm breezes. 

Creating: A new project inspired by the I Believe Manifesto.

Marveling: At the miracle of life. I am amazed daily how beautiful this existence is even when the days are painful and anxious. I have gratitude for everything. 

Needing: A hug.

Smelling: A white tea candle. 

Wearing: Comfy shorts + WVU shirt. 

Following: A Course in Miracles Workbook. I am on day six. 

Thinking: Thank you.

Knowing: Every moment has a new beginning. 

Bookmarking: The 5 Yoga Poses you Should do Every Morning.

Noticing: How my fingers move along the keyboard as I type this. 

Hoping: For some changes to happen that I've been wanting for. Patience. 

Feeling: Calm, free and peace. 

Planning: For a walk, editing a video and a meditation later. 

Thanks for reading!

June Summer

Doesn't the title of this post sound like someone's name?

I have been off the blogging radar for a long long long time now. I do plan on being more active with this blog during the course of the summer, but no promises. I like not having to schedule a post, think of an outfit to wear, take pictures, etc. I want to blog just because its fun and I love capturing memories. Photographs are like momentos of time and a life well-lived! 

In the between posts you can check out my Instagram @dearkajal for my photo diary and summer meanderings. Lots of Love!
