Megan te Boekhorst, Toronto

Hi. I'm Megan.

I brought my West Coast soul to the city of Toronto in order to build the creative empire of my dreams. Never one to take the traditional route, I've lived life on my own terms since 1991. Currently working in Public Relations while rocking the side hustle lifestyle that brings me unstoppable passion. 

In A Sequoia is for those who own being a bad ass, vulnerable bitch. A source of inspiration for creating intention. Be unapologetically true to yourself. Live #thesequoialife.


Live a more mindful life with the sequoia life dayplanner and monthly updates from In A Sequoia!

when hate and your past mix

For some strange reason, people get really weird when you talk about your past and regrets. If you feel no regrets about your past, no one believes you. You must regret something. But if you do wish you could go back and have a do-over, you're shamed for regretting it.

You are supposed to hate parts of your history, and be embarrassed about that hate.

Here's the deal though, every moment of our past was a step we had to take to get to where we are today. All of those happy, sad, embarrassing, awkward, painful, devastating, dumb, exciting, thrilling, boring, meaningless, fulfilling moments lead to the one we are in right now. And because you are such an incredible person, the moment you are in right now is worth being in.

So you can't hate your past. You can't hate your history. Because it brought you to your current life. You can't have your past if you enjoy/love/are happy with/smile in your present.

Did you know that Karuna Coffee Scrub was made with WE LOVE VAN coffee? Locally roasted in beautiful British Columbia, the coffee beans are 100% Arabica Mexican single-origin. Grown under eco-friendly conditions - Carbon Friendly and Rainforest Alliance - they are good for you body and soul. Plus 10% of profits from coffee sales go to the Lookout Society, helping care for Vancouver's homeless.  This means that with every purchase of Karuna you are helping twice as 10% of each purchase still goes to the Vibrant Lives scholarship foundation.  Double the karma, boho babe!
