As I sit here on my plush couch in the middle of the night, I’m simply reflecting on all of the occurrences in 2015. From exciting vacations to big investments and a new living space, it’s been one heck of a ride.
I see life as an infinite hike through the woods. Technically, there is no declared beginning or end to it, and you really discover yourself along the way. What techniques and strengths do you possess that will help you survive, and what can you learn and adapt to in order to make the journey worthwhile, or, well, a tad bit easier?

That’s 46 years away… seems like a lifetime but I’m sure it’ll be here before I know it. I start every morning with a cup of Yogi Berry Detox tea. Yogi really knows how to make me smile with its little messages. If you follow me on Instagram, I’m sure you’ve seen my daily posts. Today, Yogi says: “The purpose of life is to enjoy every moment.” How retable to this post about the fruitful moments of 23 🙂
