The Eclectic Ascension...What the heck is that?

Eclectic Ascension....

 

It might sound like one of those overly complicated and ambitious names that were a result of forced creativity. I know, I thought that too when I was brainstorming for this blog but it really describes the journey I have taken through my 20s. I know it is cliche' to say this, but year 25 really has brought so much understanding to my life. My mind is more clear than ever and I want to share some of the things my 25th year (and beyond because I am old AF) of life has gifted me in the form of knowledge and wisdom.

The Name?

The word eclectic is an adjective meaning something that is drawn from a diverse range of sources. As human beings, our lives are supposed to be progressive. We are supposed to draw connections between old knowledge and incoming knowledge to improve our skill sets and make our lives easier in all aspects. This is not limited just to tangible things like cars, or flat irons but also intangible things such as emotions and spirituality.  The easiest way that I have discovered to build myself up in all of these different areas of life is being an eclectic person. Enjoying the varieties of life, sharing them with other people, and being open to people sharing with me. Human beings are always in a state of building, they are always trying to ascend, or reach a higher place. Whether that be physically, socially, emotionally, or in your career, we could all use another person's insight to help with our own ascent. That is why I created this site, I wanted to create a mental buffet. I want to just have all these gems laying around in one place for people to come and take from when you are just at a mental roadblock. A place that is just full of random food for thought that will nourish you on your journey up.... 

Your eclectic ascent...
