After living and traveling outside the United States for over 6 years I find myself facing a new and unexpected challenge. The challenge I face is how to re-integrate myself into life here in California while continuing to live a connected life through intention and awareness. Nevada County is a very special place and I feel grateful that this is my home. I made a conscious decision to return and look forward to what the future may bring.

Back in 2007 I acted upon one of the biggest decisions in my life and made the choice to leave the rat-race, and ultimately quit my career as an automotive technician. I had no idea what was in store for me or the life changes that would come of it, but I knew inside that I was doing the right thing and I needed to follow my heart and take the leap into the unknown.

With the exception of some moments, life for me has more or less has been full of intention and awareness. What I mean by that is that the choices and decisions I made were thought out or more felt out. Learning to trust myself and my inner voice has been the best thing I have received in my experiences. Making conscious choices and trusting my intuition has made a huge impact on me and my goals.

Following that inner voice and my heart has led me back home. Looking back at the times when I was disconnected from my intention and awareness, I clearly see the cause. The causes were almost always, attachment, fear, distraction, and not knowing what I wanted.

I now know where I am and what I want, writing this is part of process of attraction and creation. As I look forward I see the challenge facing me as a test to continue being true to myself and the people surrounding me.

So I ask myself; if I could have it any way how would it be? My Main goal at this moment is to put my energy and efforts into something that I whole heartedly believe in and that resonates with me. I feel like Nevada County is one of the best places to make this happen. We have an amazing community which seems to be growing stronger and more diverse, I am excited to involve myself here and see what opportunities I can attract.

Things I want:

  • I want to do fulfilling and important work.
  • I want to improve the lives of those who come into contact with me.
  • I want to be in touch with the natural world around me.
  • I want to raise awareness, both my own personal awareness as well as the awareness of people in general… I am often surprised how little people question the world we all share.
  • I want to be grateful for everything with a focus on the people around me, and the experiences I share with them.
  • I want to live my life oriented to unconditional support of anyone I can help.
  • I want to be challenged and pushed out of my comfort zone.
  • I want to take every opportunity to learn and grow as a person.
  • I want to stand up for what I believe in.
  • I want to make good and aware decisions for every aspect of my life and encourage others to do the same.
  • I want to maintain a free and open mind.
  • I want to feel good about the things I put my energy towards.
  • I want to live life through love and compassion.
  • I want to stay solid in who I am and not let the things around us become distracting.

The challenge is there, I am clear on what I want. I am putting my energy out there, inviting in new opportunities and experiences. I am grateful for the events that have led up to this point and am very excited about what the future may bring.
