Hey guys, so obviously I am new at talking to/interacting with the camera, if you couldn’t tell. Haha!! It’s a work in progress. But it can only go up from here! Right?! ….Here’s to trying new things!!! I’m gonna be doing a lot of that on this blog. 🙂 And I want you to know that I meant every word of what I said in the vlog above! ^^
So incase you missed any of it, I’m SJ! And I am all about becoming bohemian…or working to achieve that lifestyle. Yes, I adore boho fashion, but I’m about to take this to a whole new level! Curious what I’m referring to?
Back in the day, the word “Bohemian” was used to describe someone who challenged the “norm”. Such wanderers were known to be unconventional, adventurous, and creative. In every aspect, they seem to always be eager to progress. Finding opportunities to observe other ways of life and learning new trades was often an interest. On top of all of this, a bohemian lifestyle commonly contained elements of Theology, Ideology, Mythology, and Spirituality. They were know to leave their mark upon other human beings and the world. It is said that they will continue to live on in the hearts and minds of the humans touched by them.
How do we become bohemian?
I personally think bohemian, or “boho” has continued to take on even more of a modern meaning as time has gone on. I’ve had some ideas come to mind as I pictured a modern boho lifestyle. Someone who is an opportunist, free spirit and adventure seeker. Or, there’s learning to take care of yourself spiritually, mentally and physically. Embracing hard things and learning from them. How about learning self reliance, self awareness, self mastery… And most definitely self discovery! There is so much we can do/learn in this life if we set our hearts to it! I want to be a “Jill” of all trades and enjoy myself as I do!
To clarify, this blog for me, is a way to keep myself accountable for my progress as I achieve the Bohemian lifestyle. I know, I won’t always have a boho fashion style forever, BUT, I know I will feel accomplished looking back, having lived a life full of adventure as Bohemians once did. I will be grateful that I took every opportunity I could and made the most out of it. This blog will be a place to share things that I have learned, and also a place where I can learn from you as well. Let’s come together as a Bohemian community and help encourage each other as we all set out on this journey!
Join community here! <—— (Here we share stories, inspiration, encouragement, and more!)
So, if you want to achieve this lifestyle with me, follow along as I embrace my path of Becoming Bohemian. Help me turn this trend into a movement! Because every time you learn something new, it can change your perspective and interpretation of the world.
That is the Bohemian way.
