Metanoia: My New Favorite Word

People often ask me what Metanoia means. Some think it's my name- while others can barely even pronounce it.

Metanoia is the word that has been a huge part of my life for the past year. It's a word I stumbled across on Instagram a while back and immediately identified with it's meaning.


To me, metanoia represents growth. The possibility of improving ourselves, living the life we envision and the ability of chasing our dreams.

In order to be successful and happy, we should constantly be evolving and learning. Learning new ways, new strategies, new routes.

One of my favorite quotes is:

"Life is not about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself."

We have the power to create our own paths, opportunities, and destination.

That theory is behind Metanoia Living. To showcase the pursuit of a lifestyle. The Metanoia Lifestyle. Inspiring you be open to change, to travel, to discover and to create a happy, fun and balanced life.

We are all in unique journeys and paths in life. For that same reason, the word metanoia can be personalized to each one of us. We add our own value to the meaning.

Metanoia serves as a daily motivation and inspiration for me- which is why it's my favorite word. Hopefully, it becomes yours too!
