HI EVERYONE!!!  Thank you SO MUCH for continuing to read my blog!!!  It inspires me so much seeing all of your comments, receiving emails and knowing that maybe I am making somewhat of a difference in some people’s lives.  So thank you for encouraging me to keep going!!!

I had the most amazing last few days in Australia.  Some definite life changing things happened, and I’m so excited to share everything I’ve learned, including my new goals which will probably shock you as much as they have shocked me and my family.  It’s amazing what happens when you allow yourself to do things that scare you and listen to your heart!

I’m almost ready to start blogging again.  I have to admit, I am POOPED!!!  I’m feeling the jet lag, and am needing to hibernate for a little while longer.  My Nursing exam is February 2nd, so I can’t promise I’ll be writing before then because I know this will lead to PROCRASTINATION which is what I’m best at in the world!  So February 2nd it is.  My next 40 day challenge will start February 1st for me, if you want to join in on that one too.  I think that most people who have been following me on this blog and know of my dreams will be completely surprised at my new goals.  I’m excited and looking forward to this fresh start!

So once again, THANK YOU for supporting me in my writing and sharing my life with you.  Some days I do really wonder what the heck I’m doing sharing my feelings all over the internet, but it just feels right.  And with your feedback, I am reminded that I should continue, so THANK YOU!!  Enjoy your week and I will be back SOON!  I promise!!

Smile with your heart!

  2. Hi JT,

    I totally forgot how I came across your blog but I am 99% sure it was through a fellow lulu of mine (or I guess- ours!) I just wanted you to know that I think you are a truly inspiring woman and through this form of sharing you are really spreading joy and fearlessness to so many people. I look forward to reading your blog entries so keep them coming!

    Cant wait to see your goals! Best of luck with your exams :)


  3. Good luck on your exam!!

    It’s great to see you back on the blog:) and to hear that you had such a fantastic time spent the last days in Australia.

    If you have not read the book “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho, I highly recommend it!

    Sometime after starting to read your blog at the beginning of the month, a girlfriend and I got together for coffee and she told me that her partner is moving to Australia for 10 months to go to school. During that time she wants to go visit and tour around/backpack and explore. I lit up and told her that I will be joining her! haha She was ecstatic – so here’s hoping I can save up enough to go in the meantime.

    I’m making it an objective, but there are many others I had written out for this year so it may have to be one objective for early 2012! I’ve also been planning to move out to BC for some time now, so I may in fact wait and save enough to go out to Australia, come back and head out BC. Either way – I am excited for whatever travels await me over the next couple years.

    Thank you so very much for inspiring me further to live by the seat of my pants – or by the wings of my heart.


    • Wow, that is awesome!!! Aus and then BC – I wish you the best of luck! You will LOVE IT HERE!! And congrats on saying YES to the trip – that’s often the hardest part! I have read the Alchemist, thank you! I should give it another read though soon, it’s been a while. Thank you for your comment – i really appreciate it! I love “by the wings of my heart” – well said!
