A Day in My Life:

Diversity !! I love how many different people doing different things you can see in even an hour of your day. I have a 4 year old and I want him to know the worked this way. You can be and you whatever you dream!

12:00 PM – Favorite Lunch spot/meal?
It an important meal for me so I like to make my own lunch but when I don’t and Im home I like to go to Divya’s kitchen. Its real wholesome food made with so much love!

What drink do you need to get through the day and at the end (and how many)?
Green tea!!! I love it!! It find it very soothing. Never more than two a day
Most used App/Favorite Instagram Account?
Sadly Via. I am moving around a lot so I take Via too much! Im not a social media person. I don have the time really. Its on my list of things to do, sort of.
What should everyone try at least once?
To be honest even when it feels really uncomfortable. As humans we avoid the truth because we down like the feel of confrontation. When I have pushed through that and did so with love it made a huge difference. Next to that it would say eye gazing with someone you really care about. Its amazing!
Where do you enjoy getting lost?
In the woods. There is nothing better for me than taking a hike smelling the trees. It truly feels like god to me.
