Loosen up

Followers of my blog may recall that I was a longtime Lance Armstrong fan. Since his grand debacle, I threw away all my Lance paraphernalia and any signs of having been a fan, the last vestige of which was following him on Twitter. Every now and again (though very rarely) in a moment of weakness, I check in on what he’s been up to, if only to roll my eyes. Thompson’s quote is what Lance cites in his Twitter bio.

Live your moments

“Intentional living is the art of making our own choices before others' choices make us.” - Richie Norton
Life is too short.
Live life to the fullest.
Seize the day.

We bandy about these proclamations but how often do we really mean them? Consumed by the realities of our responsibilities, days, months and even years can pass before we even think to "live our best life".

I was reminded of the fragility of life reading the story of Brittany Maynard, a terminally ill 29-year-old woman who has chosen to die with dignity.  She is living her final weeks in the company of loved ones, fulfilling some of her life dreams and will pass away on November 1.

She is a reminder to all of us to wake up. This really could be your last day. Don't throw your moments away.

My thoughts are with Brittany and her family. I admire their strength and courage at this difficult time. I hope that they cherish these meaningful days and find peace.

Mother Nature's playground

My boyfriend and I try to get out of town as much as possible, exploring little corners of the planet as time allows. We’ve stayed in yurts, cabins, tents and RVs. Our easy-going nature means that all options are open.

Checking back in

It  has come to my attention that I'd made some promises to myself by way of a list etched here in the blogosphere. It took a while to trace it back but I finally found it. I can't believe it's been almost three years since, so I suppose it's long overdue to report back as to how I've fared.
