Dreams do come true!

As I write this post, I hear the soothing sounds of a creek coupled with various birds' songs. I'm sitting in the living room of my new home, and I'm oozing quiet contentment. I'm on the other side of fear and loving my new life! 4 days ago, all I had was a plane ticket, a place to stay for two nights,…

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…

2013: A Year to Embrace Delicious Ambiguity…

2012 was a year of transformation. Globally, the world witnessed continued changes in the Middle East, the 30th Olympics Games were held in London, and Burma opened its doors. It was also a year of transformation for the blog. With the help of several wonderful Kickstarter backers, the first season of 6 Months to Live made its debut! The blog got a…

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…

What would you do if you had a lifetime to live?

One of the greatest blessings writing 6 Months to Live has given me is a sense of immediacy. I'm continually asking myself questions like: "Am I being true to myself and living the life I want to?" "If I really had 6 months to live, what would I do?" Most importantly, "Am I living a life I'm proud of?" Machu…

Based on a True Story: Meet Currie Rose

One of blogging's many beauties is that it opens doors to meet new people around the world.  Shortly after I started my blog, I began "wandering" around the internet.  I wanted to see what other people had to share.  It was a day like any other when I read "Based on a True Story" and met an extraordinarily inspirational individual,…

In-between Sizes

Remember that awkward puberty period?  That was fun.  Clothes were either too big or too tight.  Styles looked good one month and a sudden body shift would turn it into a trash item.  Our society addresses this idea of limbo with a somewhat negative connotation. There's a pressure to figure it out immediately, "What are your plans?" Although being in-between…

Being Human

Where does the line between aiming for one's personal best and perfectionism lie? Those close to me know that I have very high standards for myself, and I'm always striving to be a better version of me. An unfortunate side effect of this seemingly noble goal is that I don't cut myself (and sometimes others) much slack. I still believe in…
