Ticket to Heaven… 

Just yesterday I found this “Ticket to Heaven” at work. Initially I didn’t think anything of it, nor did I gave it a closer look, but instead I past it on to a young co worker who took the ticket and turned to walk away. In that same instant I got called away to help a customer and that was the end of the ticket incident, or so I thought. Either way, no additional words were exchanged about the ticket and I forgot all about it.Today a coworker (somebody else) handed me the “Ticket to Heaven” and smiled. I told her about the incident last night and said that the ticket had made it full circle back to me. Apparently the person I handed it to yesterday thought it was a joke and was not in need of it. Perhaps it was mine to have, perhaps another sign and I tell you what “Heaven is not free and not just anybody walks through the pearly gates, so who wouldn’t want to claim this ticket?”. I did, and decided to carry it with me on my journey through life. Somehow the little pamphlet had taken on a different meaning today and had found a way into my heart. I became aware of the sign I missed yesterday and was reminded to not take life for granted. 

Number 0202401 my “Ticket to Heaven”, admit one. 

And while I hope to redeem my ticket some day at the gates of heaven, I am on my way to a little four day preview of Heaven on Earth as I backpack the Sierra Nevada Mountains for the last time this year before Father Winter arrives. 

Into the woods I go to reconnect with my soul in solitude and in quiet, I leave the hectic be for a little while. 

And while I’m stripped to the bare necessities, it is then that I feel that I am at my richest. 

While I leave the modern conveniences and Wifi behind,  I know that I will find an even better connection out there.

I allow the thoughts to come and go, to pass through me without focusing and concentrating my mind on subjects.

My worries disappear and I grant the pieces to fall into place as they are meant to be, without interference. 

I listen to the sound of nature, the wind swaying in the trees and the birds singing a comforting melody. My spirit becomes free from all chains while my soul recharges to gather strength to fight another fight. (When the time comes)

No deadlines will find me rushing around but instead I will nap furiously, in a hammock stretched between trees in front of the most majestic mountain ridge you can imagine. (Pictures will follow :))

I feel the sun on my skin and I’m in awe of the beauty that lies in front of me. And it is in that moment that I’m forever grateful to witness such magic, as it stirs my heart in ways I have never known until I found myself lost and found on the trail many, many moons ago. 

I know I will miss everybody here on WordPress and I look forward to reading your adventures and witness your amazing talent once again when I get back. 

Have a great weekend everybody….

Xoxoxo ❤️



I'm a dreamer and hopeless romantic who believes that there is always a silver lining to everything. Now, inspired by the simple life, I have learned that less is more and that we find magic all around us if we take the time to notice. Life is a journey and a process that is ever changing. We are constantly evolving in the matter of who we are as we align our stars and shed a past no longer in line with our highest self. I don't easily fit conventional norms, not because I'm a rebel, but because of resenting the pull that threatens to take me away from my true beliefs and my unique personal identity. I support the power of "Choice" and the ability for us to be the architects of our own lives. Some of these choices should have something a little wild about them as they form the moments that forever stay edged in our memory and make our hearts beat with wonder. Nobody will remember the ordinary. For myself, I'm a warrior who has fallen many times, who has gone through trails an tribulations and who is no stranger to adversity. After all, my choice remains clear, to get back up and stand stronger than ever. To recognize that it often takes our darkest moments to mold us into who we were meant to be. I have learned to trust the process and stay positive through the challenges. I trust it to be the only way to prevent my heart from hardening and allowing bitterness to creep in. I believe in the power of "NOW" as it is the only moment we truly ever have. The past is gone, unchangeable and the future hasn't happened yet. All we can impact is the current moment. Everything starts with a choice and hopefully with one that has something wild about it and may even scare you to death to execute. DO IT...I promise you won't regret it. This blog is my voice to share my Journey. If I could describe this adventure in short, I would call it "Spiritual awakening" with a yearning for "Freedom" and going after the things that truly matter. To seek a less complicated life that is stripped down from the many obligations and responsibilities that often tie us down. For me it is a life free of rules and regulations, one that allows me to escape the must expectations while jumping off the hamster wheel that is spinning faster all the time. To be on my own time and live each day to the fullest, to make it all slow down by banishing routine and unleashing my creativity/artistic values in an effort to entertain whatever subject comes to mind. And if lucky, to perhaps offer a different view to my readers, one that speaks to your soul vs. the demands of what society might expect. It is one that empowers you to be your unique self and follow the beat of your own drum. I am dreaming big as I trail blaze the path to a new life and becoming a storyteller. I find my inspiration in the little things in life, in Mother Nature and on the trail that provides the adventures and the backdrop for a book someday. My hope is to inspire "Courage" in others who might find themselves on the brink of taking that first step. This blog serves as a foundation for my collection of personal thoughts, opinions and experiences and by no means am I an expert on any topics mentioned. To my readers I would say that the universe connects us by a common thread, we all search and we all have something to say. We don't always have to meet in person to share a strong bond and people enter our path for a reason. Some stay for a short time and serve their purpose, while others teach us a lesson and help us become stronger through experience. And a few special ones remain as the treasures we hold dear over a lifetime and touch our hearts beyond means. In whatever way we are meant to be, I thank you for crossing my path and for stopping by. I hope that I have left you inspired, full of wonder and with a few "Wild Choices" to make....Hugs XO
