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.

the feeling of free

Today marked the last day of classes for my summer semester. I have one month that belongs entirely to me before I head back to complete my degree.

This past semester was not fun. It was not enjoyable. I ended up in two classes that were not what I had anticipated or hoped for. They were not suited to my strengths or interests. Though there were only two, the semester was heavy because I wasn't actively perusing learnings which would contribute to my goals (besides the credits I would earn from them). I worked hard at keeping a positive mindset and pushed through the long few months of what didn't seem to me to be the best use of my hours. But now, I am done.

The weight of these two classes has shocked me today, after having it disappear at 4:00pm PST. I feel the need to run barefoot through a field, but even more so, I feel like I can. Because I am free. I feel like I can make the time to do what truly brings bliss into my life without guilt. It's an empowering experience.

I always ensured I would do things that made me happy in the semester because that is such an important part of maintaining balance. But school, by its nature, required a sense of priority I didn't fully want to give it, but did. This delayed my capabilities of going after goals I wanted to get to in the immediate moment. Such as bringing my vision of a shop to life, filled with intention based goodies to connect with your true self and help you achieve your big goals.

And so, with the time ahead of me, I will be ensuring I actively pursue meaningful bliss with intention. I will take advantage of my temporary, complete freedom. And who knows, I might be doing a small shop opening in the near future. Or maybe I'll spend the month with my feet in the grass. We'll have to wait and see what this freedom brings.
