Life begins when we prioritize having fun.
I believe that most of humanity is starved for appreciation; we do not get enough of it. So many of us tie our worth to our work, our value in our productivity. But life is meant to be enjoyed; we're here to have fun!
I believe suffering stems from attachment and joy comes when we appreciate and accept the present moment. When we appreciate the small things, the simple joys, life becomes infinitely more abundant and more magical.
Hello there friend! My name is Helena. I lived a fast, achievement-chasing life, and hustled it out in NYC for 5 years before deciding to live a simpler, slower life - one where I prioritized my own values in harmony with my wild and fun-loving spirit! In 2018, I began learning and living what it means to live a "slow life" while in France. And I found that my greatest fulfillment came when I found presence and appreciation in the simple joys of life.
I document to savor and celebrate life. To feel the past, imagine the future and savor the N O W. To live fully and live more. To document is to celebrate time.
Life moves fast; I want to slow it down for a little while and allow time to stand still so you can remember what it feels like. I believe that there is always time for play, wonder and curiosity in our lives. My goal is to share stories that elevate the simple joys around us, that bring positivity and light to our human experience and to guide others to find the light and truth that is within them.
Perhaps that's why you are here: you want to feel refreshed and inspired by daily life. Maybe you desire that feeling of ease and clarity, of trusting in life more...and of appreciating the small things in your daily life.
keepin' it simple, warm hugs, straight talk, integrity, vibrant colors, nature (and dancing) being the best medicine, having fun!

Old-fashioned polaroids! There is nothing quite like taking a polaroid of a moment in time and watching it develop slowly - I hang my polaroids around my house and they are such a treasure.
