This week I was privileged to answer 20 questions with Soul Anatomy about life, love and coping mechanisms.

1. What is the most liberating thought you’ve ever had?

That I alone am responsible for and in control of my thoughts and therefore, I am completely in control my life.

2. What did it liberate you from?

Fear and anxiety about the future and past regrets.

3. What does it mean to live a good life?

Finding balance. Things don’t always have to be perfect. Balance is the goal.

4. What poem are you most proud of having written?

It’s not exactly a poem but I love The Identification Meditation in Cured by Nature.

5. If you could go back and whisper in the ear of your 16-year-old self, what is the one thing you would tell them?

Relax. You’re not broken. You’re beautiful and capable and everything will work out in the end. Keep writing and don’t stop creating.

6. What does love feel like? (Real love, not hormonal love or I-like-the-idea-of-you-so-I’m-on-a-high love).

Real love is like planting a garden: it’s a lot of hard work, there are some setbacks, but you can grow and harvest a lot of fruitful things together that can sustain you for life.

7. What does your daily routine look like?

I wake up early, stretch, meditate and begin by reading a book. I make a smoothie and a healing breakfast, then I take my dog out on a hike or a beach run, followed by an organic skincare routine. I like to get all of this done before I start any ‘work’, which is why getting up early is so helpful.

8. What’s your favorite thing to look at?

Nature. I love looking at the sky, especially out in the mountains with a 360 degree view. It never ceases to amaze me.

9. Describe your perfect weekend.

An unplugged weekend on the beach with a book, a cooler of kombucha and some organic snacks with my dog and my love.

10. What do you worry about the most?

I try not too worry too much. It’s a bad habit. But I have a hard time slowing down.
