As I am settling back into island life, and looking forward to the last few weeks left in 2016, I cannot help but think back over the year. It has been packed full of “bucket list” items. I want to bask in these memories so that I don’t get lost in the daily “to do” list. It is so easy to feel a dash (or a bucket load) of anxiety creep in when that second list becomes the only focus. In those moments, I want to redirect my attention to the things I have accomplished and the magic that I have experienced. Those memories are what will keep me inspired to continue living out my dreams and encourage the people around me to do the same. So, as I clean my apartment and pay my bills, today, I will remember this beach in Anegada that I finally had the opportunity to sail to this year. ❤To everyone with whom I have been blessed to share these adventures, I send you all of my love and gratitude❤

Some days are easier than others. For those that are not, remember to be gentle with yourself. Focus on the things that offer relief. Trust that it will pass. Don’t stop believing that you can have all that you have dreamed of, even if it doesn’t feel like it in this moment. And remember to be kind to one another…we all have hard days.
