New Beginnings...



2011 was a bit rough, so I welcome 2012 with open arms as being a year of calmness and a renewed simplicity and today I can't believe it but I turn 32, eek. The clip of this lovely girl Klara Harden who hiked all over Iceland on her own is incredibly beautiful and inspiring. I like that it even shows a glimpse of those vulnerable challenging moments that happened along her journey because it sure seems like those tough moments are the ones that truly teach us to soar. My obsession over the beauty of Iceland continues on.

Happy Birthday Rachel! 32? That's nothing - I suppose I don't really have perspective on age yet, only turning 20 in March this year, but seriously..embrace it :)

What a stunning video, thanks for posting it. I'll beat you to 36 tomorrow, trying to be positive about it (still feel 13 inside).
2011 seemed rough for a lot of us, but I really feel the positivity swirling around 2012!

I turned 32 last year and I continue to find my 30s to be the best time of my life - I feel more empowered, more capable, and more happy. I hope you discover the same!
