What is a traveler’s mindset?

  I’ve been back one week now from months of traveling in Europe and slowly settling into bay area life. I say slowly because I’m trying to hold on or better said adopt the traveler’s mind into my daily life. Which of course begs the question – What is the traveler’s mind? I can’t speak for all travelers, only myself and my mindset. When I decided to pack a bag and set off to travel, I knew only one thing for sure… that I didn’t know anything.

Her mission: to createContinue Reading >>

Becoming Productive: Take 3

  We can all agree that there never seems to be enough time to get everything we want to do… done.

It’s not rocket science it’s basic human behavior whether you are aware of it or not. This is one reason I’ve made a conscious effortContinue Reading >>


[I wrote this post back in 2012 and never published it. Stumbled upon it in my draft folder and thought I would put it out there. Years later and I’m still practicing this recipe for success] Every now and then I get caught up in work craziness, workout madness, or just good the good ol life roller coasters… now was one of those times.
