This story invites readers to not only engage in the beauty of one woman’s journey of self-discovery, but to embark on their own journey toward living life to the fullest and highest degree possible.
I feel privileged to have sojourned along with Rebecca. Her journey was honest, open an insightful. Having insight into her desire to satiate her thirst in discovering her true essence reminded me of my own path to self discovery.
Rebecca was determined to forge her own beliefs in mind, body and spirit. Questioning her environs along with parental influence, religious teachings and her own unanswered questions she established her own path and discovered more than expected along the way.
Even when Rebecca obtained her answers she dug deeper and as she matured and evolved her questions expanded and so did her curiosity and craving for more. It was beautiful to witness the girl metamorphosis into a woman.
Her independence and courage was inspiring. I loved her wanderlust and admired her for traveling alone exploring her chosen destinations without fear while soaking up the culture and vibe each location offered. She is an uninhibited traveler and learns from her destinations, social interactions and her sense of surroundings.
As her sexuality, personal growth along with spiritual discovery unfolds, she reveals her many layered discoveries with incredible rawness, humor and unbelievable insight. A story women will enjoy as well as relate to in some form. A candid lens into a young girl turned woman discovering ecstasy.
From my experience, I’ve learned that finding ecstasy first lies in the belief that you always have a choice as to how you want to react to any given circumstance and, therefore, how you want to experience your own life. Second, ecstasy lies in the belief that you are worthy of love—releasing the fear and expectation of needing to be loved by another and simply loving yourself. Third, ecstasy lies in the courage to be vulnerable.
