Visiting the Capital: Washington, DC

Stop number two was my country’s capital. My draw to the District of Columbia was not the politics, but the history. America has had so many victories and setbacks in that area so it was really neat to see it in person. My only complaint seemed to be the walking because there was a lot…

One Wild Ride: Galveston, Texas

Believe it or not, my first stop was not scheduled for Texas. In fact, none of my stops were anywhere near Texas. My first stop was Fort Myers, Florida. This trip was an annual “girls trip” with my aunt. Two days before our scheduled trip, my aunt flew in so we could go together. We…

A Busy Summer

Going into summer means a bit of a transition from my normal posts. This summer, (like all of the past ones) I am going to be traveling a ton! I may not be going outside of the country like last year, but I am travelling to some interesting places. With all of these trips I…

A Goal Update

Hey y’all! It sure has been awhile but I’m back! I’ve been working really hard this past month with my goals and it’s starting to pay off! Goal-making has really strengthened my motivation and helped me organize my thoughts and aspirations. When we work on our goals we really align our lives with what we…

The Light at the End of the Tunnel

Sometimes you get stuck in a rut. A cycle that seems never-ending. Life seems to be filled with the same old stuff. Other people can offer their help, but it takes our will power to get out. This world is filled with thousands of new experiences that are waiting to be discovered. Life is a…

Why I Don’t Get Homesick

For some, travelling is nice but homesickness is always there. Personally, I don’t get homesick. I’m so eager to see the world and travel that I would rather be away. Not saying that I hate where I live or want to move, but I love having new experiences. The world is such an enormous place…

Memories

They say a picture is worth a thousand words and I agree. Pictures are some of my favorite things. So many memories and thoughts brought about by an image. My room is covered in photos of everything from childhood pets to holidays celebrated with my favorite people. Instead of having things to bring memories, pictures…

Reflecting

This year has been a new experience for me. The future holds so much promise and as I’m getting older, it is kind of scary. My life is approaching a cross-roads. What is next? I have been holding onto the past a lot lately because it is certain. Journaling has really been helpful because I…

One Goal Down!

For the past 10 months, I have wanted to donate my hair. It was a hard journey for me due to the fact that I had never had long hair before and I never wanted to, but it was such a good feeling of accomplishment and of knowing I helped someone else. I probably won’t…

Making Goals

Goals are very underrated. People push them to the side even when they are extremely important. They are hard and people want an easy way. The other day I was thinking about all of the goals I had and how long I’ve had them. When is the day going to come when I finally achieve…
