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…

Invest in What You Love!

"Where you invest your love, you invest your life."  -"Awake My Soul" by Mumford & Sons Almost 4 years ago, I had just moved to San Francisco. I took a huge leap of faith in moving to California and when I finally landed my dream job, I had $200 left in my bank account. I desperately needed a new comforter,…

Living your Dream Limbo? Just Keep Swimming!

One of my biggest missions for "6 Months to Live" is to inspire and empower people to create lives they love, so it's important to me that I am a cheerleader for people and their dreams. I want others to know that dreams do come true, that everything is possible, and that magic and opportunities are everywhere. As the blog continues…

I’m Coming Out!

Remember that awesome Diana Ross song from 1980, "I'm Coming Out?" I distinctly remember 70's Disco music making a consistent appearance in my early childhood--that and Barry White. Looks like my parents were groovin' clear into the 80's! The lyrics go a little something like this: There's a new me coming out And I just had to live And I…

How to Make Hard Decisions by Kim Nicol

"Be Curious. Savor all of it." --Kim's tagline on her website, kimnicol.com How to Make Hard Decisions I know what I want but it's scary and (maybe) irresponsible.  I knew for a long time that I wanted to __________.  I'm leaving out the specifics of my desire because you can place just about anything in there and this story will…

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…

Why 29 is Worth Rocking

Have you seen the life rings on a Redwood or Sequoia tree? Each small line represents a year in that tree's very long life. Humans carry marks of their own lives too--wrinkles, tattoos, freckles, scars, piercings, etc. We also carry those younger parts of ourselves inside us. With every year or layer we add on, it can be difficult to…

Redefining Experience: Meet Avital Ungar

From the moment I met Avital Ungar, founder of Avital Food Tours, I knew I had met a kindred spirit. Full of energy and beaming, she walked into the room with the perfect mix of confidence, elegance, and down-to-earth charm. Her curiosity and desire to experience the world led her to France and later to China where she sampled all…

Day 65: A New Life

Life presents many opportunities. The trick is to both recognize them and to take a chance. I'm making headway in my "Keeping Promises" post from December: I had an audition for a community theater project this week (and got accepted into the troupe!), I'm actively working on the book, and most importantly, I moved to San Francisco. On one of my…
