Little  Planning

I love reading blogs, books, and articles about other people's adventures in travel and the outdoors. So often in those readings I come across people stating that planning the adventure out and putting together all the pieces is a big portion of what makes the adventure so exciting for them. I used to believe this... Continue Reading →

Kindness without expectation

For the sixth week of the Kindness Challenge put on by Niki at “The Richness of a Simple Life” she has had us think about “Kindness without expectation”. This topic took me much deeper than I had anticipated and I want to put a disclaimer up front that it contains some language around the psychological... Continue Reading →

Grateful for connections

Due to the things happening for me this week, I have decided to switch my posts around and do my general post today, while adding my response to the Kindness challenge on Sunday.

New elevator speech

This past week, I had a lot of opportunities to test out the elevator speech for the new role I am trying to create for myself in the next chapters of my life.

Intuition is the plan

The last months have been a very interesting adventure for me. I have learned so much from and about the people that surround me on a daily basis. I have learned that when I quit my job without any concrete plan on what will come next, but with a vision for a future that lets... Continue Reading →

Tenacity

Just over two month ago, I made the decision that it was time to not only do a small overhaul of my life, but that some big actions needed to be taken. With the realization that I would not be satisfied at the end of my life, if I would not make some major changes... Continue Reading →

Self-Acceptance

For the third week of the Kindness Challenge put on by Niki at “The Richness of a Simple Life”, the focus is on Self-Acceptance. This week will mark the last of the prompts that are specifically addressing kindness toward ourselves. Just as I was sitting on the couch in my living room contemplating the blog...

Self-doubt

I am a firm believer that there are always two sides to each story. Whether we see it or not depends on how emotionally attached we are to our preferred side of it. The thing is, when we allow ourselves to be open to see the other side, there is a lot we can learn... Continue Reading →

Self-Compassion

For the second week of the Kindness Challenge put on by Niki at “The Richness of a Simple Life”, the focus was on Self-Compassion. This topic has been sitting with me ever since it was announced for the challenge and Niki’s questions to contemplate added an extra layer into the mix. It wasn’t so much... Continue Reading →

Mind Shift

These last months have been a big transformational journey for me. Although the circumstances around this journey have not been easy, I am grateful for all the learnings and changes they have and are bringing with them. When I set out, I don’t think I realized that I was about to go through metamorphosis. And... Continue Reading →
