A number of you have sent messages inquiring about my whereabouts. What have I been doing? Am I okay? Is the blog still active? I want to thank you all, including those who remain silent but continue to check in for new content. I never would have expected to deviate from posting twice weekly on MBSB but the reason for it all has been rooted in the positive.
I’ve been living in the present. I’ve gotten lost. In June I returned to Toronto, a city I previously lived in after an approximate four and a half year hiatus. I spent an estimated ten years of my life here and this is the first time I’ve been able to experience it in the way I truly desire.
The Toronto I now live is one filled with laughter, creativity, and plenty of sleep. I’m intellectually stimulated and creatively inspired. I’ve worked as an art assistant, modeled for a jewellery line and regularly work merch for out of town bands. A little over a week a go I was cast as Evil Cheerleader in the independent horror short Devil’s Night (stay tuned). Life is good and I have no complaints.
This all contradicts my previous existence here, a life restrained in various office environments and subsequently in varying states of emotional and spiritual disarray. The monotony and inauthenticity of it all was slowly killing me. I prefer to be challenged and I seek to evolve, thus Thailand, which inadvertently came dangerously close to the same outcome albeit by different means.
I’m very thankful for my current time in Toronto. It has helped heal wounds I didn’t realize were in need of care.
Living what may seem an ordinary life in an uncommon way can be pretty amazing.
I’m also training muay thai again.
More to come.
