Feeling Lost May Be Exactly What You Need to Live

There is a point in our lives where we feel lost or like we need to “get our shit together”. It comes at different times for all of us, but nonetheless, we all think it or have someone say it to us. As I was driving home the other day after spending some time with a girlfriend who’s trying to figure out with she’s doing with her life, I had a profound thought. I had been giving my girlfriend advice, through my own experiences, as if I knew something more than she did in those moments. When, in all actuality, I…

How to Create the Best Festival Experience

It’s that time of the year again… it’s festival season! Ask any one of my friends and they will all tell you that I have everything and anything you need to create the ultimate festival going experience. You name it, I’ve most likely got it. Tents, tapestries, cooking ware, a yurt, easy-ups, mattresses, chairs, etc. It all started with my first festival in 2008 when I attended Lightning in a Bottle. Never had I experienced such a thing. Music, yoga, art and amazing people gathering together to have a memorable time. Fast forward to present time and I’ve got more…

25 Ways to Radically Love Yourself Right Now

When February rolls around we put a lot of attention on to others, and that’s great, but what about yourself? Giving to others is a form of self love because what you give you receive, but what is it like to truly be wildly in love with ourselves? Not in the egotistical kind of way but in a way that is unbound and free of others expectations (even our own), to live bearing our hearts and souls, and to tell our fears to fuck off. This Valentine’s Day, and so on, give yourself the gift of self love. 1. Let go. There is…

A Love Affair with Coffee

I’ve decided that I’m never going to give up coffee. Coffee is romantically luring. I like it strong, sweet, with a small hint of spice and topped with a mound of whipped cream. Whipped cream just goes so well with coffee, like a good, hardy ginger beer goes with whiskey or ample foreplay before sex. I could forever eat a diet free of sugar, processed carbs, and meat but I want my coffee. If coffee is my only vice then I’ll take it. If whipped cream is my only sugar, then so be it. For me the moments between sips…

A Man’s Perspective: It’s Not All About Boobs and Butt

A good friend of mine once said, “As you get older the physical becomes less and less important.” I could not agree more. Do not get me wrong, an attractive exterior is still something to be admired and it will still attract one’s attention, but it will not create a strong connection or an everlasting impression. It is the qualities that define someone that makes them truly sexy and entrancing. Everyone’s physical appearance is different and how they maintain that appearance is different. The physical lacks longevity, embrace who you are and be proud of it. Attractiveness will always be…

How Being in Nature Reminds Us of Our True Nature

“The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.” ~ John Muir During the time between Christmas and New Years, my manfriend and I headed to the mountains. I had been craving the forest. I was lusting for the feel of the crisp air on my face and the smell of the snow drenched soil. I needed to hug a tree, knowing my medicine lies within those trees and beneath the starry sky. A break was in order for us both from the high speed craziness of the city. We sat in the pizza hall at Curry Village…

One Life, Two Perspectives

Perspective One: My life sucks. I’m broke, I hate my commute to work, I’m too tired to workout and I never have time to do anything I want to do. I got kicked out of my place in Ocean Beach a few months ago and now have to find another place to live but the problem is that everything is too expensive and landlords have stupid rules about dogs. Now I have to live at my manfriend’s mom’s house in San Clemente. It’s great and all but I have to drive 45-60 minutes to work everyday. It sucks gas out…
