I finally decided to put my money where my mouth is. I’ve frequently talked about how I have one life to live and I don’t want to spend the rest of it in an office, behind a desk, or sitting on my ass. When Kegan passed away, something in me shifted. I mourned losing him. But I also have been mourning the life I still had yet to share with him...I have mourned not having crazy adventures I still thought we’d have, checking out new sites, playing fetch in wild places, or seeing his wide puppy grin as he spots water to go jump in. I viscerally felt how true it is that we have one (very) short life on this planet and our pups’ time with us are often much shorter. After Kegan died, I said enough is enough. I stopped grad school, I stopped everything. I packed my car up with camping stuff, snow stuff, beach stuff, and Molly’s stuff...and the Moo and I set out on an adventure. To reinvent how we’d now be together without Kegan for the first time ever and for me to finally stop the rat race and spend some time introflecting. The time is now. Life is now. I finally get it.
We are currently about a week into our trip and left #joshuatreenationalpark this morning, which is such a wild and interesting place. We’ve landed in Tucson for now and I honestly don’t know where we’ll end up next.
I’ll keep y’all posted. #onelife #roadtrip #nationalparks
