"As the traveller who has once been from home is wiser than he who has never left his own doorstep, so a knowledge of one other culture should sharpen our ability to scrutinise more steadily, to appreciate lovingly, our own."
— Margaret Mead (via itsquoted)
"Don’t get stuck. Move, travel, take a class, take a risk. There is a season for wildness and a season for settledness, and this is neither. This season is about becoming. Don’t lose yourself at happy hour, but don’t lose yourself on the corporate ladder either. Stop every once in a while and go out to coffee or climb in bed with your journal. Now is your time. Walk closely with people you love. Don’t get stuck in the past, and don’t try to fast-forward yourself into a future you haven’t yet earned. Give today all the love and intensity and courage you can, and keep travelling honestly along life’s path."
Hello friends! I’m in the top 25 but need your help to stay in the running this week to potentially summit Mount Kilimanjaro and spread the word about my company Amazi, all while raising money for clean water initiatives through Charity Water.
Amazi is on a mission to end bottled water for our health and our planet. If just 16% of our bottled water production and consumption was eradicated we could fund the 800+ million who don’t have access to clean water.
Amazi means “water” in Rwanda and the chance to go to Africa would be amazing as I also give portions of our own profits back to these missions.

"For me, a woman who is absorbed in her work, who does not care about gaining one’s favour, strong yet subtle at the same time, is essentially more seductive. The more she hides and abandons her femininity, the more it emerges from the very heart of her existence."
