“I just want to live in a world of mountains, coffee, campfires, cabins, and golden trees, and run around with a camera and notebook, learning the inner workings of everything real.” – Victoria Erickson
This blog is about living for the simple things. Waking up early with no place to rush off, that first sip of coffee, cozy socks and warm blankets, the smell of books, journaling with soft music in the background, the warmth of the sun against your skin on a spring day, the sound of heavy rain, stargazing in the dead of night, listening to the waves crash on the ocean shore, watching the sunset on a summer day, the first snowfall, the crisp air on an autumn night, the smell of fresh flowers, the sound of nature in the woods. Those are the moments to live for. If that sounds like your idea of living, join me on this journey.
I’m Ashram, a 24 year old who lives in Boston. I am a slow living blogger, student, infant teacher and a self-taught social media strategist. I’m passionate about wellness and self improvement. My goal with this blog is to provide the resources that I’ve learned to live a more fulfilling life. After searching for ways to find a bit of calm within my hectic schedule, I was introduced to the idea of slow living. Slow Living is a lifestyle that focuses on being conscious of everything around you and savoring it. It’s taking the time to be present and doing activities as well as possible. It’s about rejecting the fast life that the world endorses; fast food, fast money, fast fashion and taking a slower approach. It’s about living life at a more organic and relaxed pace. It’s about focusing on your wellbeing to make life less stressful. I created The Ash Log to share this process that I’m using to live a happier and intentional life.
