Sarah Inspired

Hi, my name is Sarah and this is a blog about my life, my loves and everything in between. I’m a 28 year old, actress and writer originally from the prairies. I’ve lived in Vancouver for close to three years now and fall more in love with life everyday I spend in this beautiful province. One thing i’ve learned while being here is that life and all its moments are better shared with others, so this is the reason behind “how she learned to fly”. I came to Vancouver after meeting the man of my dreams. I hate to admit that I moved for a guy, so instead I say, he was my catalyst. I had just graduated and felt the need to spread my wings and he was there to say “just jump!”…so I did. Long story short, we were engaged after six months and married a year and a half later. Since being here, I have experienced some of my highest highs and lowest lows. I decided there was no other way to live my life than to follow my heart and do what I love, so I chose to dust off my childhood dream of being an actress and actually try it out so I would never have to look back, sigh, and say “What if?” I’ve has some medium successes but spend a lot of my time repeating my daily mantra,”patience is everything”. Well, that is the quick and dirty version of my life as of now. So I would like to say, Welcome to my world! We are all in this life together!

Tofino Dreamin’

My man and I escaped to Tofino for a late summer getaway. We spent 9 glorious days nestled in a rustic little cabin on a private island. 

No electricity. No cell service. Nothing but the sound of the surf and hush of the daily fog that rolled in and out.

It took me 3 days to wind down into the quiet rhythm of this very special place. Not being able to ‘plug-in’ I realized how addicted I had become to my phone and social media.

Being present was my only option. I had to be in the stillness without distraction or escape. It was the greatest gift I had received in a long time, and brought me back to source…be it god, or the divine, or the universal energy that runs through all living things, and reminded me of the tremendous importance of being present to the life and abundance that is constantly being given to us is the simplest and purest forms. 

I was reminded of what was real: the smell of the ocean and its changing tides, the birds that gather above our heads and sing, the wind in its magnificent, invisible dance. The exchange of eyes and smiles meeting. 

I dare you. to ‘un-plug’. to step back in to the realness of life. to cherish the mundane. to remember your own breath. to walk with the birds and dance with the moon. 

I dare you
