When to Bail Out or Stay the Course

This time last year, I was in the process of creating a huge and seemingly crazy dream. I decided in August of 2012 that I wanted to leave my job and my life in San Francisco and sail in South America. I had no idea how to sail. Very long story short, I found myself living the dream 3 months…

The Adventure Begins (Again!)

I just finished a journal I began in August. At the time I was living in San Francisco, going through the motions. Job, apartment, and friends were all good, but it felt like something was missing. I took a “date with Jackie” day, which essentially means spending most of the day alone doing whatever I feel like. Most of those…

The Best Adventures Begin with Choice

Most epic stories or adventures begin with a dramatic life change. Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love, decided to go on an incredible journey to Italy, India, and Indonesia after a devastating break up. Elliot's life was completely turned upside down when E.T. arrived.
