WHAT A MONTH!!
I'm writing this with slight sadness in my heart but also a lot of excitement! This month of January might be the best start to a year I've ever had! I really don't believe I could've asked for more. Reflecting back on this month my heart is about to explode and it's only been 1 month.. I did say this was gonna be the best year ever and if I keep the flow going... I can't even imagine...
I started in Kauai and 'finished' in Maui, I'm not quite done yet.. I got to spend a whole month with my girl Nikki who's a BEAUTIFUL soul in so many ways. So pure and beautiful inside and out.. I usually long for some girl time when I travel with all guys and Nikki really embodies the soft beautiful feminine so it was perfect. Feminine energy, clean food, I swear I don't think I've ever eaten so clean and fresh in my entire life. I've never eaten so much kale or drank so much green juice in a month. Nikki and I would go to the farm and pick 10-15lbs of fresh greens ourselves pretty much every day! Taking farm to table to a whole new level. The weather has been PERFECT! Literally.. I couldn't have asked for more. Good food, good weather and good company! I feel so blessed and blissed and my health has taken it to the next level. I'm in awe of how amazing it has been and still is.
As I'm reflecting on this past month I can help but also reflect back on my life 3.5 years ago sitting in Denmark having this 'gut feeling' that didn't make sense. I say it all the time but I'll say it again, let life happen and watch your dreams unfold. Though this is way beyond what my imagination could ever come up with. Point being: FOLLOW YOUR HEART AND GUT FEELING! You never know what kind of magical place it might take you to. If you know my story, it hasn't always been beautiful, quite the opposite actually and I feel so blessed that I have those dark moments as contrast cuz I'm not sure I would realize just how beautiful life can actually be if not for those dark moments..
As i'm writing this it's 11:11 right now, I keep seeing that number a lot every day.
Anywho.. Just remember.. Even when things are dark, actually, lemme tell you a story so you'll get a better idea of what I'm about to say.
3 years ago I was so sick of having roommates I was surrounded by people ALL THE TIME. It was right when Dan and I had just gotten married. Dan and Tim had this grand idea of having a live-in situation in California in a big house and having a lot of roommates. I hated the idea but didn't speak up. long story short, I was really bitter and overwhelmed about it but one of those roommates came from Florida and her name was NIKKI :) She stayed with us for the month and we hit it off like soul sisters and now, 3 years later we met up again like no time had went by and had the most incredible time anyone could ever ask for.
This is just 1 example of how 'bitter' times lead to amazing moments and amazing friendships.
As well as last time I was in Maui, my health had a pretty rough time and to top it off, I woke up with a stiff neck one morning and thought @%¥€! Not again. Feeling so annoyed with the situation I texted a friend that does MAT work (muscle activation therapy) and had him help me out. As I'm laying on the table in his living room almost done with my session, this little Asian girl walks it and I just knew.. We were gonna be friends! We started talking and things just got more obvious! She had to be a part of my life and if not for my stiff neck I wouldn't have met Riho.. Once again, life makes sense backwards and those 'bitter' moments lead to amazing friend.
Now I constantly remind myself when things are 'rough', that I might just meet another BFF :D haha, so keep an open mind when you feel like times are hard. It might lead you to the best times of your life and though it might not always happen right away, it might happen later. ️
I can only imagine and pray for what's to happen for the next months but I'm excited. I'm sad that Nikki had to leave today but I'm so grateful for the beautiful month and experiences we had together. I'm excited for what's next in HER journey as she gets on that plane and prepares for the next step as I'm sitting here reflecting on what happened and what might come! We got in some CRAZY experiences together that lead to something looking like a real life scene from Harry Potter (I'm talking dark wood shed, dusty books and the black cat on the chair and all), a golden egg, multiple rainbows (the brightest I've ever seen) and white horses that looked like unicorns. Seriously.. I think the universe was trying to give us a hint. Life CAN be a fairy tale if you 'let life happen'. SO many moments that didn't even feel like real life. I can't wait to see where in the world we meet up next. But till then, I'm gonna continue to let life happen and see what unfolds next... And as I'm finishing this blog, Nikki just sent me this..
Guess the universe wanted to make sure I REALLY believed what I was writing.. :D
I hope that this month has been just as beautiful for you.
With Love ❤ , Diana
