Reborn Under A Waterfall....(9.23.19)
This was me, under a waterfall, at Cummins National Park in Tennessee. It’s one of my favorite photos I’ve ever taken.
I was on a weeklong road-trip by myself, exploring trails, waterfalls, restaurants, new towns, etc. I was in my TRUE element. It was a busy and fun trip, but my favorite part was the hours of solitude I spent in National Parks.
Then I returned from vacation and life went a MILLION miles an hour. Deadlines, performances, texts, emails, always needing to be “on”, meetings, projects, personal training and medical appointments. I felt like that happy place I felt under that waterfall- the feeling I want to remember the rest of my life- vanished.
Have you ever felt that way? So disconnected from your spirit that you are just “existing?”
Don’t get me wrong- I love what I do and am so grateful to be able to do it! I just know myself, and I am not designed to be “on” all the time. Online, on stage, on air, etc.
So posting this, and revisiting this beautiful moment in nature, is my own personal way of rebooting. My heart is happy writing this, and for that reason alone, it’s enough.
