Today was supposed to be “architecture day” where I seek out every possible Gaudí building in Barcelona.
Aloha. Im starting to spot a trend here. I’m back in my happy place, Hawaii and specifically Maui for vacation. For those of you that have followed my blog, you know that this is a VERY special and healing place for me. This was a place where I came to heal after incredible loss and…
More than ever, we have a civic responsibility to do something greater as Wanderlusters.
Last year, I traveled to find my light again and break out of darkness that was overshadowing the new life journey I was meant to discover. Travel fed my soul, taught me a lot about myself and challenged me.
This year, I travel for Love.
It’s been a week that I’ve been in Maui hanging out with a dear friend that I met over a year ago on this same island. He’s helped me overcome fears, encouraged me to be open-minded and intellectually challenges me. I usually give him credit as one of the people in my life who…
Bonjour. Can’t quite get over my travel hangover so I’m committed to blogging and recapping the adventures to relive it. If you’re looking to squeeze in one or two more last minute trips during the summer but have no one to go with at the same time, don’t fret. Take the plunge into solo travels…
I am touched and thankful today.

“Sing badly with confidence.” That was the advice I got today at my 5th singing lesson. I had to do a double take on that one with my instructor. This lesson was an interesting one today and was one lesson that convinced me to continue renewing my vocal lessons. We worked on scales and yelling…
In order to find yourself, you must lose yourself. In order to fulfill yourself, you must forget yourself. In suffering, we learn to fight and wrestle with our sins and through this battle, we learn how to manage ourselves.
In essence, suffering cultivates character.
So now I am asking myself…am I afraid of singing or am I afraid of failing at singing? I probably sounded terrible and there were probably a few blown ear drums in the neighborhood. But at that point, I didn’t care that I sounded AWFUL.
The power of Yet. I’m not there “Yet”. We’re not there “Yet.” Another perspective on Failiure – instead of failing, perhaps you just haven’t gotten there “yet.” (More on this concept here). Some may say that the power of “yet” means you just delay failure’s inevitable. But what if the power of “yet” was…
