Cheers, For All Of It

Lately my feelings about life here, have been changing as quickly as the Azorean Weather. The Azores are known to have unpredictable, changeable weather, often experiencing all four seasons in one day.. Dress accordingly.

A couple of weeks ago, I told my partner, I needed someone to knock on the door and offer me a part-time job. Late that same evening, we had a knock on the door. It was an older man, offering me a job… It was the first time in my life I accepted a job with an avocado mask all over my face. Talk about the power of manifestation. Weird.

The job is at a local dance club, I am bartending. And while I would much rather be serving shots of wheatgrass than vodka, I am grateful for the job. Unemployment is very high on this island of 5000. One of the reasons we are planning to move. Opportunities, there are few here.

But it is such a beautiful place. How do you leave an island so beautiful, so peaceful, so different from anywhere else??  Well, the truth is, it is hard to focus on the beauty when you can’t afford basic things. My family and I are facing a problem   many people all over the world know too well. Living in a country with a seriously struggling economy (Think about the current situation in Greece).

But I am grateful, for all of it. This experience, this time. These friendships. The stories. BUT, I also understand the need to say goodbye to one life, take a chance, and adventure into the unknown…

We can either come from a place of fear, or trust. Or both! Haha..

Though my feelings about life here are constantly changing, one thing has been constant lately. I want the beach!!!  The element of water. So soothing. So perfect. I have been spending hours everyday with my kids in the ocean. Snorkeling, swimming, yoga, tide pools, staring out at the horizon…

Last week, I had some beautiful people fly to the island and practice yoga with me. From Norway, Italy, and Greece. It was so lovely to connect with like-minded people. Playing the Tibetan Singing Bowls. exploring the island, exploring the breath, sharing delicious food.

With the powerful full moon, and the beginning of July, lets manifest joy, abundance, trust, prosperity, fun, shots of wheatgrass, and lots of time at the beach.

Remember, we are exactly where we need to be.

With a grateful heart, CHEERS!!! -Tiff
