The countdown for my four day adventure has begun and in all reality the “short timers bug” has got a hold of me days ago. I have started to count down the hours. Only the working hours though, as all others belong to me and I wish it was those that could be slowed down to last forever. Fifteen hours stand between me and freedom, so let them pass quickly please. Does anybody else do this? I’m sure of it, I can’t be the only one, being so unique that it is only me who enjoys their time off to the max. I know for a fact that I’m not. We often fever towards something special, something we are so excited about and then it comes and goes way too fast. I already know that this time will not be different, but for now however, I will stay anchored in the pre excitement, the journey that lies ahead and the know of returning enriched with memories that will last a lifetime. Mountains or oceanside remains the big secret as far as revealing the destination in a blog post. I am excited to say the least, albeit knowing that I have family from Germany in the area visiting Las Vegas and New York. I would have loved to visit, but several things fell through in the end to materialize this plan from making it happen. I know they will have a blast and party, after all there is a reason they say “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas”. And I know I will enjoy the solitude and silence to nurture my tired soul. The Vegas slogan has become a favorite saying at my Tooth-Fairies office and who would have thought that dentist visits could be so much fun. I’m afraid I’m an accomplice by now and all secrets will have to rest with me until eternity.
I’m planning on bringing the war bonnet, even though there be hardly any reason to wear it other than from an art and photographic point of view. My time away will be peaceful and I look forward to an escape from reality. I’m pretty much packed and surely I’m well prepared for every kind of scenario. What I’m trying to say is that I packed way too much…again. 75% of what I usually pack returns back home untouched, but hey got to have it, right ladies? I have been seriously contemplating a thru hike lately and have an amazing friend that continues to inspire me to do so. I will definitively have to learn to pack lighter as those packs easily weigh 50-60 lbs and even more for others. I’m thinking of what my personal goal would be here and believe me it does get heavy lugging the pack all day, up and down the mountains. We almost did a four day trek this time, but honestly I need to ease back into it after the absence caused by the crazy holidays and given that my last vacation was in 2015. I’m tired and I need reconditioning.
2017 will be a year of choices, a year to make changes, a year to jump off of the hamster wheel and a year to chase my own stars. To take my health into my own hands, to train and get into the best shape possible to chase some of those dreams. There is not a day to waste in living my “Dash” and with that I know that I will have to step back a bit from WordPress. It’s not that my time spend on here could ever be a waste of time to me, as it gives me purpose to connect with you, but I do know that it also requires a lot of my time. Time I don’t always have. I will get a taste of it during my upcoming four day adventure as I’m still planning to post, but entries will have to be short and for sure lack the often in depth nature of my posts when it comes to sharing my personal journey.
Have a beautiful weekend everyone.
