CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

I started thinking, I’m documenting my journey here and although I’ve been staying at home and really haven’t traveled much of anywhere, this is a part of my journey I feel is worthy of some sort of documentation. So here goes nothing…. The great virus of 2020. Is that what this will be known as … Continue reading CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

First Camping Trip in the TEARDROP!

Clear Springs Lake Day Three, Happy New Year, and Wreck #2

It was the first! I didn’t make an entry post this day in my journal because we never made it back into our tents once we got up for the day.

Other people will always doubt you, so it’s up to you to believe in yourself!

I can remember in the first few days in rehab some of my doubtful thoughts. I told my mom, "I'm not sure what's gonna happen but this can't be it because I'm not a person meant for a wheelchair". This was my thought process because I was an athlete, I was active, and I loved … Continue reading Other people will always doubt you, so it’s up to you to believe in yourself!

First Solo Camping Trip

Last summer I was single for the first time in a very long time. With that experience I had moments of feeling alone and lost. It made me sit back and think. What do I want out of life? What is that I like to do? I like traveling and experiencing new things. How can … Continue reading First Solo Camping Trip
