Taking stock

    0
Manchester by the Sea, MA Less than 24 hours until my departure and amidst the preparing, packing and goodbyes it seems like a good time to pause and take stock.  I’m in Boston for a final farewell with friends and family, to put the finishing touches on my preparations, and to hopefully catch my breath (and catch up on sleep) before I step on the...

How Far I’ll Go.

Bali, Indonesia. 2017. Happy is also the girl who quits a job that would prevent her from making dreams come true! Happy is the girl who takes risks. Happy is the girl who prefers to be optimistic. Happy is the girl (this girl), who travels the world! With each day, I realize the true power of my thoughts, and I am constantly noticing my life...

Drinks on Me

    0
In the last few months, pretty much every aspect of my life has changed. While all the changes have been positive, it doesn't make it any easier to process. The attempt to find a new normal while everything around me is changing has flipped my body upside down, and turned my mind around. The effects had finally caught up to me during my last few...

On Race, Compassion, and True Unity

    0
Know what I love most about California? The diversity here has made me more compassionate. I knew racism existed as a child growing up in the predominately white Midwest. I didn’t understand it but I knew that there was something wrong about it. Being raised in a very conservative Christian home, I was taught that while we were all equal, the races shouldn’t intermingle. I...

Eye of the storm

Well, I didn’t get this posted before I left Colorado, but close your eyes and imagine it’s one week ago.  Then open them again, otherwise you’ll have a hard time reading this. I’ve been waiting for some spark of inspiration in order to write this next post, but the matches seem a little soggy, and the fire’s not starting.  I suppose that could be because...

In Order to Pack, First I must Unpack

    0
Oh, 2017, you've  have been a brutal year so far! It feels as if you've sent me on a nine-hour long plane ride through nothing but thunderstorms and constant turbulence. In reality, it has been nine months of heartbreak, disappointment, and rejection. I say it's time to put a halt to all of that whirlwind and start smooth sailing! Call me Julia Roberts from the movie "Eat,...

Safe Travels

Today, I am off to London to spend the rest of September transitioning to the digital nomad life. We all hear it from our friends and family before departure,"Have fun, be safe...Safe Travels!" It's a natural closure statement as we wish our loved ones well. Do you ever really stop to think about the meaning behind these words?There is no doubt that the year ahead...

BOSTON | FAREWELL

“Each and every generation is shaped by different events and forces and so develops its own set of attitudes and innovations different from those of the generation that came before or will come after. But following your talent, applying it to life’s opportunities, and in the process finding your passion is the theorem that I believe is timeless.” --- John Pulichino @ Northeastern University, the...

What in the world?

    0
If you know me, you have probably heard the phrase "what in the world?" pop out of my mouth at least once a day like the old Southern grandma I apparently am. As I contemplated this first blog post, it occurred to me that many of you probably have some “what in the world” questions of your own - possibly including, but not limited to:What...

Chasing the Wrong Currency

    0
Money rules the world. It affects our behavior, it is how most of us determine our success in life. However, it is only one of our four major currencies of our world. The four major currencies include money, attention, people, and time. Of the four, money is probably the least important. Unfortunately, we trade the other three currency cheaply to acquire money, specifically our most...
