Update

September 17, 2015

I realize is has been a very long time since I have updated my blog and lots of things have changed!  I successfully completed my Fulbright in Mexico City and returned to the U.S. on June 30th.  I was home for about three weeks and I am currently in Germany working remotely, and taking advantage of the opportunity to travel!  While here, I’ve been able to check out some amazing places in Europe!  Croatia, Czech Republic, Belgium, Amsterdam, Sweden and Denmark to name a few – blog posts coming soon.

I’ve come to the conclusion that no matter what stage of life I’m in, I will never have it all planned out.  Before I entered college, I was always under the impression that I would “have my life figured out” when I graduated with my degree.  My favorite professor from college always mentioned a theme about shipwrecked sailors.  We’re all shipwrecked sailors in the sea of life just trying to get by, and this concept has really resonated with me the past few months.

“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”
– Lao Tzu

Whatever stage of life we’re in, I hope we can all find some clarity and stability on this thing called life.
