When I created this page and wrote my first blog post I had wild ambitions.
Too wild, in fact.
I was hoping to create some sort of brand identity for myself where I could do the writing I wanted to do and put in my two cents on everything - literally everything, and that was the problem. I had no direct focus, I didn't know where it was going, I just wanted it to GO... and that's where it stopped.
I come back here months after my original post, after losing my mother and undergoing some serious thought due to it.
I had conversations I never thought I'd have in life - ones that no one wants to have.
With these trying words my soul started to flutter. Something inside of me took off and said, "Let's go!" I think part of my mother, the part of her that loved walking through Paris, the part that was given form when traveling through India, just wandered into me. She asked me before she died what I was going to do after she was gone and I told her I was going to take my girlfriend on a trip.
That trip is here.
And while it would be great to say I've found my calling, I've found where I'm going from here and you'll hear all about it on the next blog posts - that's not exactly how this works. I want to travel, I want to see the world, I want to take risks but I need to find something first. I need to find if I'm running to something or from something. I mentioned this on an Instagram post and my conclusion was: when I get down that road and up that mountain, when I stare forward do I see the end, or just more road? So I'm in for a journey here, and it will not be easy sometimes but I imagine it may end up being pretty fun at times.
So, jumping back...
I'm not going to make this no-direction blog that I originally stated. I'm going to be myself, I'm going to journey forward, and I hope to take some along for the ride.
So now... on to my next stop.
