Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Oh, Hi 2017!

Oh, Hi 2017!

You got here quick!

But seriously, life just passes you by when you aren't being present.  Towards the end of every year, I get anxious for the new year to finally start--my body aches and my stomach is in knots from all of the holiday foods, my bank account is anxiously awaiting a deposit, I am exhausted from the shopping and erratic scheduling of last minute appointments and parties, and I'm simply ready to shut down and restart.

i get angry at the goals I didn't accomplish, I get upset if I have forgotten my goals, and I say that the upcoming year is a second chance.

The reality is, every day is another chance.  Actually, every hour, every minute, every whatever is a second chance.  i can eat the spoonful of ice cream now, give up, and eat the whole pint, knowing that my stomach is going to be unhappy later.  Or I can make the choice to stop at one spoonful--my destiny is completely up to me.

So I failed at my #DAILYDRAW.  To be honest, writing daily was ambitious.  And secondly, I still don't know where to draw the line in terms of how much I share.  If I keep it on the surface, it gets redundant.  If I go all in, well, that's jut a lot of crazy I'm throwing out into the internet.  i'm going to continue the tarot reflections, but I'm not quite sure in what capacity.

The only thing I know, is that this year, I want to LIVE.  If that's all I do in 2017, I'll be satisfied.  To live is to be present, be engaged, have purpose.  If I can do that, I think I can take huge steps towards what I want.

So this year, what is your number one intention?
