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. Tonight I sit down to my “last supper” I will have as a “twenty-something”, and tomorrow was supposed to mark the end of this journey I started just over ten months ago.

Before I Go’s 30-day Meditation Experiment

“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.

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.

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?

The Science of Happiness

It seems almost comical that there can be a “Science of Happiness”. Traditionally, “Happiness” seems like it should come organically- something bestowed on you from an outside source. But the more I research this subject, the more I draw the same conclusion: Happiness does not derive from the circumstances we find ourselves in, but how we… Continue reading The Science of Happiness

Oopsy Daisies

So, I have a secret…. No one in my life knows this blog exists. For some reason, it feels 100% okay to me baring my innermost thoughts to people I’ve never met. But the thought of people who actually KNOW me reading this? TERRIFYING. Maybe someday I’ll get there, but it ain’t today. Which is… Continue reading Oopsy Daisies
