As my first post to Restless & Free the Blog (yay!), I would like to set the intention for this journey. During my 2.5 months abroad, I hope to begin again, develop a new worldview centered on an unconditional love for life, and find my bliss - whatever that may be. For some, this may all sound like love, peace, and hippie nonsense, but to each his/her own. We must all find our own way to enjoy the gift of life.
Why have I decided to do this? Well, after a recent family trip and a combination of circumstances, I took a good hard look at my life as it was. I was unhappy with my situation, and figured that it was up to me to change it. Around the same time, one of my dearest friends and confidants, sent me a blessed book called How Yoga Works by Gesne Michael Roach (I highly recommend it to anyone in search of happiness). It basically provides readers with pathway to the end of suffering through the understanding of yoga.
During the time between the climactic family vacation and this journey, I spent most of my time planning, practicing yoga daily, and focusing much more on the development of my jewelry. I found that these things brought peace into that turbulent period of in-between-time where I worked on reconstructing my relationship with family and friends.
Right now, I am in Asia, working on my relationship with my father, brother, and also myself. After all, before you can truly begin to love others, you must first love yourself.
With Restless & Free the blog, I will keep you all updated on the progress of the new world view, share my journey, and hopefully discuss various existential and design related topics with you all :)
- May your imagination never cease to flow
