Passion and Authenticity

I’m McKella:  a wife, writer, and perpetual changer of hobbies. I have dozens of interests that I cycle through regularly, but I’m most interested in creating a life that is truly mine, where I’m my authentic self and I live with passion. What does this mean to me?

Authentic: Celebrating my real personality, my real body, and my real soul free from pressures and restrictions of society, like dieting, conventional health guidelines, consumerism, school, traditional “jobs” and a linear career path. Too much of my life I’ve wasted trying to fit into a mold, but finally I’ve decided to say “Screw it” because I know never will.  It’s time to peel back the layers of social constraints and live the life I was meant to have.

Passion: I want to learn and create without inhibitions, to feel no fear of trying new things or feeling that I must be perfect or correct to be validated in my activities. I want to dive headfirst into the things that give me joy and to have the courage to seek them out.

I want you to live your authentic life too. Everyone deserves a life that’s joyful and fulfilling, so as I create my life, I’ll share with you my discoveries to help you along your own path. What will you find here?

Unschooling and organic learning


Intuitive eating

“Real food”

Joyful movement

Happiness and emotions

Natural health

Unjobbing and fulfilling work

Frugality, minimalism, and simplicity

Body image

And other things I stumble upon.

This is the handprint I want to leave on the world, to help people learn to create their own happiness.

So, I bring you Handprint Soul.

It’s going to be an awesome ride.
