Quitting is not an Option

In my infinite quest to find, build or manifest the fountain of chiseled, high-performance Youth I have tried out many different diets, programs, protocols and fads. I have never and will never roll out a particular style of eating unless I have tried it out myself or done some in-depth research on how one's particular physiology, set and setting may be cohesive for such diet.

Behind the Scene Routine- How to enjoy every moment of life while remaining in-line with your heart's desires

As playful and spontaneous as I allow myself to be and happily thrive- there is quite a bit of behind the scenes routine that goes on to allow it.

I Am it all

As the entire Universe dances in a seamless melody of systematic chaos, infinite energy exchanges from a conscious mind and into flow. In times such as this, a keen observer may be forced to wonder: Which part of me is precisely me?

Reigniting Your Wild Heart

When was the last time you did any of the following:

Howl at the moon?

Climb a tree?

Play in the surf?

Move like an animal?

 Why shouldn't we take the time to nurture the wild heart that lives in us all? Are we not just animals ourselves after all? Correct me if I'm wrong- but there are times in life you feel lost and out of control.

Meditate While You do the Dishes

Meditate while you do the dishes. Why not? Why not be at peace with the little tasks you must complete throughout your day? These tasks are not going anywhere, so why not find the joy while taking your garbage out? Sing a song and maybe even bust out a dance move here or there.
