“When you really want something, it’s because that desire originated in the soul of the universe. It’s your mission on earth…. And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”
In The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho wrote this, which reminds me that we all have unique strengths, passions, and gifts, and we are designed to use them! When we’re putting our most heartfelt desires into action, there’s something much greater than us that guides us along the way.
Place I call home: Newport Beach, CA
How would friends describe me:
33% Passion-driven, thoughtful, and loving
34% Weird and quirky
33% Hardworking, determined, and organized
Guilty pleasure: Rocky road or mint chip ice cream. Or America’s Cup. Or Pressed Juicery.
Vacay: Somewhere off the beaten path. Probably in or close to nature. Definitely somewhere with people from a culture that is very different than my own.
Favorite Emoji? It’s a toss-up between the eyeroll, the SOS, and the girl shrugging her shoulders emojis.
Weird thing you keep in your bag: I don’t usually have too much extra stuff on me, but the weirdest thing I probably have is my Dr. Bronner’s organic lavender hand sanitizer. Is that really even that weird though?
Favorite artist: If I reaaaaaally had to choose one, I’d go with Jeremy Loops. Good vibes, genuinely cool dude, positive lyrics, and comes from the beautiful Cape Town, South Africa.
Best part about teaching at Bounce Society: The community! Chelsea and Talia bring together a lot of fun and supportive people. Not to mention that this is actually THEE most fun cardio workout ever and I love getting to share it with people.
