My mom likes to refer to me as a Yippie, which is short for yuppie hippie.
Fortunately, it’s a moniker that I rather like.
I don’t have a distaste for the term yuppie since my roots are far more humble – but that’s not to say I don’t enjoy a degree of consumerism, which given the poverty I come from, I might even enjoy it more than others.
However, I am also a hippie. Read my blog and you will see both sides; I am the inner and the outer. I am a paradox of 100 trillion cells being held together without touching. I am the unique creative force hidden within my mitochondrial DNA.
And that’s really what binds the inner and the outer sides to me together: my creativity. It’s one of the driving forces in my life. I’ve found that the more I express my unique, inner-creative self, the more I am that I am.
Sometimes I feel compelled to manifest my creative-side in ways that seem silly even to me; but I do my best to follow the intuition of the artist within me – despite the silent protests of my left brain.
I think there is an artist within all of us. One of the great ways to manifest that is to adorn your home and your body with your own personal touch.
It will help you feel more connected to yourself and you’ll feel more at home.
I was recently going through my closest and I came across a shirt that had a HUGE collar. I tried it on, and I was like ‘what the bejeezus! – that is a giant collar’.
