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. I gotta say, getting a reading was way more fun when you have someone there to go with you (and have lots of wine afterwards and talk about your… Continue reading Psychic, CHECK.
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. You know that saying that everything happens for a reason? Well…I wrote that post on July… Continue reading Abundance
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.
This week I had a career breakthrough and my yoga teacher exclaimed, “How exciting! So, is that [career] what you want?” And I, thinking I was being OH-so-Zen, replied, “I don’t really know. I’ve adjusted my thinking recently and all I want is to be fulfilled. However that comes, I’ll accept it.” I was expecting her to… Continue reading Marry Rich
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
Tonight was my class at REI about (getting to* and) hiking Havasu Falls! *The “getting there” is the most complicated part: read on to find out why… I am so glad I went because honestly, as much information as there is on the internet about this, there wasn’t one definitive source that laid everything out in steps… Continue reading How to ‘Havasu’
The universe rocks sometimes. SO, remember how I wrote just a few days ago about finding that random Pinterest post about Havasu Falls in Arizona? Well how weird is THIS- I went on my local REI’s website to look at hiking boots (another major dent in the wallet) and saw that they offer FREE (at last!)… Continue reading REI For The Win
Today I started researching in earnest what it’s really going to take to hike the Inca Trail in Macchu Piccu. This was the first thing I found after googling “Inca Trail Macchu Piccu”: “The Inca Trail is by far the most famous trek in South America and is rated by many to be in the… Continue reading The Inca Trail; Going For Broke, Literally.
Today I thought I’d try to get excited about this journey of mine and do a little online shopping and research about hiking trails around me to train for the Inca Trail down the road. While Pinterest-ing away, I found photos of the most beautiful hike I think I’ve ever seen. It’s called Havasu Falls… Continue reading Pinterest, The Travel Agent
New Year’s Day is a lot of pressure. Whether or not you make a big deal out of it, you can’t help but take stock of your life. And you also can’t help but set yourself up for failure. Resolutions are a fool’s game for me. I make them every year, but I know in… Continue reading Jan. 1, 2016: The List
