This is 30.

At 5:52pm Pacific time, I officially leave my 20’s behind and transition into my 30’s. It’s a very strange feeling, knowing that I will never again have an experience where I say “when I was in my 20’s I…”. This morning I was planning on indulging in sleeping in, but my body woke me at… Continue reading This is 30.

The First Last Supper…

It is officially the Eve of My 30th Birthday.

Psychic, CHECK.

I did it! Checked one more off the list and went to a psychic with my best friend while she was visiting me from New York.

“30 days has September…” During this year’s journey- and for many years before I got really serious about my mental health- I have been told (and shown) by numerous sources that meditation, even in a small amount, can do wonders for the brain, body, and soul. Positive thinking can literally change your cell make up. By changing… Continue reading Before I Go’s 30-day Meditation Experiment

Abundance

  So, the last time I updated this blog I admitted my big “failure”- that I wasn’t going to be able to make the “most important” goal on my 20’s bucket list happen: I had canceled my trip to Macchu Picchu.

Forgiveness.

The truth is: I don’t really know what to say. Halfway through this year-long journey, it started to become clearer and clearer that I was going to fail…and fail BIG. The practical truth: I cannot afford, for a multitude of reasons, to go to Macchu Picchu this year. Even though I planned, even though I… Continue reading Forgiveness.

April 29th, 2016: Me too?

I’ve been toying more and more with the idea of sharing this blog with my friends and family. Slowly but surely I’ve told about 5 people who I know for sure won’t judge anything that’s on here, and who miraculously always see the world through nothing but kind and empathetic eyes. But for some reason,… Continue reading April 29th, 2016: Me too?

Top Things To Do in Idyllwild, CA

  How is this place only 2 hours from LA?! I recently went to Idyllwild for a much-needed shot in the arm of good ‘ol fashioned Mamma NATURE. I can’t believe I’d never been there- it’s only 2 hrs away from where I grew up and it’s SO cheap to visit. Who knew that this… Continue reading Top Things To Do in Idyllwild, CA
