Life can be pretty amazing once you throw out the rule book; once you stop doing things because you’re supposed to, and instead in the moment, you decide with your heart and your soul about what’s truly right for you, and your journey.


  1. Be weird. No, really. Let that freak flag fly. I spent the better part of my teenage years, and young adulthood unsuccessfully trying to blend in with everyone else; whether it was with music, clothing, pastimes..., I assumed my value was in being able to blend in.  Boy, did I have it wrong. It’s amazing how much easier it becomes to throw the rule book out after you hit thirty; and I couldn’t be happier I did. I am my weird freaky self; an artist, yogi, hippy burning incense loving fancy drink making barbeque eating lover of life…and I wouldn’t have it any other way. The best part? Those close to me feel the same; I have the close friends I do now because I embrace my weirdness, and they love me for exactly who I am.
  2. Fuck Fear. Seriously. Fear is there in your head reminding you of all the times things didn’t work; all the times you were hurt, or felt rejection, or the disapproving stares of people who don’t really matter. Honestly, there is no other way to live life without rules, than to say Fuck Fear. Just fuck it. Apply for that new job; call that friend you haven’t talked to in a while; say you’re sorry and move on; and that particular lover you can’t stop thinking about?  Let them know you love them. Fear is the limit that holds you back from your greatness. Just fuck it, and try anyway, you never know how amazing life can be until you actually give it a try.
  3. Listen to your heart. People are complicated; and the right thing may not make sense. And sometimes good, isn’t good enough, and sometimes even good can be wrong. Our heads are destined to mess us up. There may not be a logical reason why you should take that new job; why you should end that relationship, or why you feel drawn to someone; it’s in those moments though that your head can’t figure out, that you need to give up control to your heart. Let your heart lead you; and you’ll never be led astray.
  4. Live for the moment. In this fast paced society, where we can order take out, find a date and book a vacation all within five minutes without ever getting dressed or leaving your bed, it’s hard to slow down and live in the present moment.  So many of us get up and go to jobs we are supposed to, or live our daily activities because we are supposed to, and we forget about living in the moment, about finding joy in the every day. Living in the moment, doesn’t mean dropping off the grid and living in a cabin in the woods, although no judgment if you do. But it’s more about a way of life; Starting the day imagining your car is spaceship as you drop your kids of at school; meeting friends for dinner or drinks in the evening; making up fun themed parties; planning picnics in the middle of the living room; roasting marshmallows in the fireplace; relaxing in a candlelit lavender scented bath…A life well lived is a life where the small moments become memorable. You don’t need a private jet, or endless funds to make this happen, just a little imagination and a desire to make every moment count.
  5. Make Love. Make a lot of it; every day. This is by far my favorite. Move through your day as if each and every movement is a precursor to sex; to your lover touching you. Make yourself feel beautiful whether that means dreads, or a polished bob; a pencil skirt, or tye dye, whatever is beautiful for you, and own it. Feel the movement in your body as you walk; the way your eyes sparkle when you’re talking about something your passionate about; the way your bare throat is exposed as you throw your head back and laugh. Make love to every moment of your day; embrace your sexuality and the infinite pleasure that it brings. Live for bringing pleasure to your lover, and don’t be afraid to bring pleasure to yourself. It is one of the greatest gifts of being a soul in this body that we have the ability to feel the touch of ice sliding down our skin, or a feather being danced upon our back, or the way every hair along your neck stands up when your lover whispers their intentions into your ear. Life is meant for love, so live it up, and get down. Every damn day.


It’s amazing the things we find time for once we stop doing what we are supposed to; so why not, call out of work today, surprise your lover, and go on an adventure…Make every moment count.

        After all it’s the journey, not the destination that matters most.
