Welcome to This Vast Life!
Welcome to This Vast Life, a personal blog about living naturally and holistically. This encompasses everything from healthy recipes and skincare DIYs to sustainability practices and mental wellness.
Hi, my name is Robin! I grew up in Paducah, Kentucky, a small art town by a river, and I am a senior journalism and public relations student at Asbury University.
I have always loved writing, and my dream is to be the editor of a magazine. I am a follower of Christ and believe in prevailing love over human condemnation. I strive to live a holistic lifestyle, which means I turn to natural alternatives first, try to eat healthily and gluten-free, use essential oils and do yoga. Read more about my journey to a natural lifestyle. I am passionate about the refugee crisis and aiding those in need of safety and peace.
I also enjoy camping, going on hikes, knitting, reading, laughing (all the time), cleaning, baking, making smoothie bowls and spending time with my incredible family. (Follow my college professor dad on Twitter and my amazing artist sister on Instagram. Or don't, if you're like my strong and creative mom and don't have social media.)
Why This Vast Life?
The dictionary defines vast as "of very great extent or quantity; immense."
My personal motto is 'life is vast.' It is a reminder that the little things that cause stress or worry are only tiny drops in the vast ocean of life. Life is so much bigger than this moment or this day; I am defined by so much more than this one choice or this one mistake.
Truly believing in and living a vast life removes the pressure and anxiety to make every second perfect. This life is vast, and the immensity of it alone is what makes it beautiful.
