I’ve crossed the 100 day threshold as I’m crossing the country with Princess Grace, Mama J, and Kilo. We’re heading home after our Boulder adventure.
While Princess Grace didn’t meet the man of her dreams, we all feel that we’re that much closer to accomplishing a few of the major goals on our list. I’m not sure you can have a better, realistic outcome than that.
For me, the vacation was a chance to get my mountain fix…to put things into perspective…to hit the pause button and not get swept up in the current of everyday life.
It was a chance to miss Mr. Universe after being pretty much inseparable for nearly 60 days. I think we both learned a little bit about ourselves and our relationship as a result.
I remember how I used to take work trips and not talk to anyone from home – including my significant other – for days at a time. I didn’t do it for any particular reason other than I was distracted by work…and that was my priority.
I have a hard time imagining doing that now. Maybe it’s because I’m not distracted with my job or maybe it’s because I’ve finally figured out how to prioritize what’s important or maybe it’s because I’ve found my match…and I miss him when I’m away.
I’m guessing it’s a bit of all that plus the fact that I’m a very different person than I was 100+ days ago. It’s true you can’t change someone else, but you can absolutely change yourself if it’s in your heart to do so.
Think you can’t? Well then you won’t. Because what you think, you become. This blog will be my proof…and if I can do it…anyone can. Let yourself dream…then let your dream become your reality. It’s easy if you try.
560 miles….and 264 days to go. Xoxo
