Give it Back, Pay it Forward….

By Myka

When we first had the idea for Highbrow Hippie and drafted our Manifesto, we made a commitment that we would always try to be as transparent and authentic as possible, offering our readers the good, bad and ugly. One subject in particular we wanted to focus on from time to time was the importance of giving back. Often life gets so busy and stressful that we forget that we are very blessed, and there are others in the world that are truly suffering and would gladly trade their problems and worries for ours. So whenever we feel like shit is truly about to hit the fan, we have found that the solution is to get out of our own heads, and focus on helping others in need. Let us tell you that the timing of Aids Walk Atlanta 2012 was just what the doctor ordered. Last weekend offered us the chance to explore the new Atlanta Beltline project, while re-connecting with friends old and new while we raised money for an incredible cause.

Exercising outdoors in gorgeous weather, helping others, followed by post-walk al fresco cocktails in Piedmont Park and a nostalgic tumble down a large hill circa 5th grade? Sounds like a perfect Sunday afternoon to us. We are blessed, indeed.

Myka has always been enamored with beautiful things and making things beautiful. Highbrow Hippie is truly an extension of how she lives her life on a daily basis and represents the things that are most important to her - community, personal growth, self care, simplicity, good design, eco - friendly practices, self awareness and a healthy approach to consumerism. It’s a combination of the things she’s loves and does best: creating the perfect space to bring beauty, wellness and conscious living into other people’s lives.
