I want to live an inspired life. Even on days when I am sick, I want to remember that it’s worth it. So I am dedicating this account to sharing beauty, healing, and moments that make it all worth being alive to see it.

#butyoudontlooksick Hi! Let’s talk about this (: how did you feel watching my story? Surprised? Uncomfortable? Speechless? This phrase “but you don’t look sick” is something I get a lot, and I’m sure other invisible illness warriors get it too. It’s not comforting, it doesn’t make us feel better, it actually degrades and pushes aside the very real pain we are going through. We get it from doctors, teachers, friends, and family. What are we supposed to do? Scream in pain? Most of the time, on the inside we are screaming. We have to be strong, but unfortunately our strength silences us. So here’s a spoonful of truth. I didn’t leave school just because I wanted to travel, and I didn’t stop traveling just because I was homesick. My illness got in the way of both of those things. Most of my days I spend at home, not really able to do much. If I can get out once during the day for even a couple of hours, that’s a busy day for me. If you know someone who is an #invisibleillnesswarrior check in with them when they go radio silent, call them even though they didn’t call you back last time, and don’t look away when they tell you they’re in pain. Be strong enough to be present with them, because they are having a very difficult time being present with themselves.

you are afraid of failing, you are afraid of succeeding. you may fall, but if you do not leap, you will never learn to trust your wings. you are so afraid either way that you are afraid to try. you are afraid of the messiness, of the imperfect stages. that’s why you haven’t stuck with that thing long enough to master it. that’s why you never try to master anything. if you start to receive praise for work you do, you think you must switch to something else. because god forbid you make it to that mountain, see that view, and then loose it all. but what if you did it anyways. what if you climb and get to the top and see the view and come back down and tell others and leave breadcrumbs for yourself, a trail to follow back to the peaks. what if you touch the rocks, bathe in the creeks, kick up the dirt, breathe the clouds, hike the valley , taste the fruits, smell the wild flowers, just to say that it exists? you don’t have to prove the magic, just believe in it, over and over, in every part of nature. remember that nature includes cycles, storms, death, phases, sickness, jubilee. remember that earth laughs in flowers and sings in smiles. remember the stars, remember we are all in this together, all apart of something. we dont quite know what it is, and isn’t that special.

San Fransisco is a real cool city. California is a real cool state. I’m headed back to the Midwest for now, cuz that’s were all the people that love me are found. And I realize, that’s what makes home Home. I’d like to thank this little dog for being the best traveling companion a girl could hope for!! I’d like to thank all the friendly strangers and the amazing friends I stayed with. You made this trip very memorable.

Making my way through the mountains and up the coast of California. 
The mountai
Making my way through the mountains and up the coast of California. The mountains of San Bernardino held special medicine for me. Medicine of friendship, of the Green Wombyn, of laughter (so much laughter!!!). I get to share sound medicine through songs and conversation wherever I go, with whomever synchronicities connect me to. What a blessed life!! It is getting hard to be on the road so long. I set out of Chicago a bit over a month ago and I am getting tired. What do you do to keep yourself grounded and centered when in unfamiliar situations? It can be difficult to travel while having emotional swings of the new moon, and finding good food that won’t flare up your tummy if you’ve got #crohns or #ibs or finding a bathroom when you need one! Oy.. Well, for now I am going to keep heading north up this beautiful coast. What an amazing and thrilling ride. . . . . #healing#traveling#travel#sanbernandino#thetravelinghealper#california#socal#lakearrowhead
