Second Wind

On our journeys, there will always be moments when we need to stop, either to take a rest or start over. Too often we just keep going and going and going, not even realizing that the same energy, joy, and excitement we've started with has long gone. Recently, I've been focusing on taking time to … Continue reading Second Wind

Have You No Shame?

No . I would be lying if I said I've never been ashamed of something I've done before. But I'm not really ashamed of anything anymore. With shame comes guilt and I've been in such a place of acceptance and forgiveness of myself and other people that I have no room for shame. I've come … Continue reading Have You No Shame?

Having … Continue reading No Guts, no glory.

I was the middle child and wanted to always be there to protect my older sister and younger brother. I was the … Continue reading Taking Care of Home

Why I Blog?

It is one of those seasons that … Continue reading Happy August!!

Reach . Grab . Release .

I've been thinking a lot about the important things in life. How do we make meaningful experiences, relationships, and choices?  I thought about traveling the world. How fulfilling it is seeing life and different cultures. I thought about the beautiful photos I would take and how we're able to capture those memories with fancies cameras … Continue reading Reach .
