Your Quest Begins Here.

Paying close attention to the things you gravitate towards is the most important step in realizing ones potential. Do you feel at home in natural surroundings or do you thrive in a fast pace environment? Do certain colors, cultures, or hobbies jump out at you? The things that resonate with you will always shine brighter. They look and feel more vivid because our true spirit attracts them like an invisible magnet. They  are effortless, and in turn, make us feel more alive and full of wonder. These clues are road signs that will lead you to discover your unique self and assist you in designing your unique life.

At times, it’s difficult to decipher those aspects because we’re surrounded by external influences. Such as friends and family who may not share the same interests. That’s okay. Honor their choices and fully support them but continue to notice all the clues that are meant for you and follow them. Continue to stay true to who you are, and you’ll live an authentic and full life. We all share a collective principle of wanting to live our best life but we must infuse that life with our own flavor. Then and only then, can we offer ourselves full-heartedly and live The Woven Life.
“Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were only walls”
-Joseph Campbell


  1. right, follow your heart, it's best for our lives, hehe :D

    Enjoy it.


  3. After reading this article, life felt more alive, greetings

  4. Influence of external interactions are very significant

  5. So true. So often, people will tell us how we should live, what we should do, what should be important to us--sometimes because they want the best for us, sometimes because they want us to be like them. But we must follow our heart and do what our spirit tells us is the right choice, the right path. This is not to be confused with selfishness or self-centeredness. When we are living an authentic life, we should feel fulfilled, but also, in some way, we should be making the world a better place. We should be sharing our gifts and abilities. It is not necessarily an easy path to follow, but we will know in our heart that it is the right path.
