Elysian…ish is inspired by the grounded notion that we are all “Elysian’s”. An Elysian is a divinely inspired, peace-full and perfect being. To be an Elysian is to be unapologetically one self, to be rooted in the belief that ” I am enough” and to be inspired by the perspective of ones higher self. The “ish” is an acknowledgment of the otherwise not so characteristic and comical manner through which I personally seem to stumble through life at times; on my journey of self creation and re-discovery of my higher self.
Damn that got real. But seriously, this simple perspective has transformed my relationship with myself and this blog was partly created to help people do the same.
Along the way this blog also became a safe space for self expression that also serves as a creative outlet that allows me to share and connect with others. I have always struggled with the idea of defining myself in a concrete paragraph or two. Maybe it is because I have always been perplexed by the normalized concept of defining who I am in descriptive adjectives. When I think about describing ME, my first instinct isn’t to describe myself in words but rather to share a side of me through an experience… The motivation behind this blog is simply to attempt to share, express, create and I suppose to learn how to describe the experience of my being with words and my lens. What to expect: A perfectly imperfect representation of experiences through snippets of thoughts, images, ramblings and mediocre use of grammar 😉
