Travel round-up time!! Unless this is your very first visit to my blog, or you’ve been living under a rock, it comes as no surprise that I’m reflecting on my travels for this past year. I like to look back and see where I’ve been before I think about where I will be going. The first half of my year was actually spent more at home here in Maryland than out and about, which was a nice, albeit strange (for me) change. So here’s a month-by-month review of some of my adventures of 2018.
Yes, I do realize that today is the 9th and I’m posting about Day 5 and skipping Day 4, but I am (nearly) current on Instagram and I’m being gentle with myself when I’m not able to 100% achieve my exact initial goal. I’ve been working on what will show up under #1 here this past week as well as have some fun and time to myself. Anyway, the December 5th prompt was “5 Things About Me” and I try to keep them both interesting and honest. There’s a balance point for me about being open and keeping some things to myself that don’t necessarily need to be out for the entire world to read. But here you go: 5 Things About Me.
I love having a bucket list. I think it’s a great way to make some crazy, nothing-off-limits goals to have something to strive for. The first time I did this I was maybe 12 and had no idea how I would get to France or ride in a Pittsburgh’s biggest horse show, but within a few years I did. There are all kinds of theories out there as to why making goals works - personally I think that if you throw something out in the universe, the universe will conspire to help you. Not a scientific reason, but occasionally you have to go beyond science.
