Today the thing that makes me most happy is to celebrate another year of my amazing father’s life. For 54 years he has been such a gift to the world around him. Always full of support, love, humor, ease, and just rolling with it. For years he’s sang wildflowers by Tom Petty to me and I’ve never missed our dorky dances in the kitchen more. So after we facetimed today, I thought it fitting that since I couldn’t be eating cake and watching Monty Python at home with him, I would plant some lovely flowers in my garden to remind myself everyday what he always tries to tell me, “Far away from your trouble and worry, you belong somewhere you feel free.” πŸ’› #Day3 #100daysofhappiness

Today I was fortunate enough to meet up with a few of my favorite volunteers at Rick’s Cafe in Negril. This 35 foot cliff may not look especially high but I can promise you that in the 30 seconds it took to climb to the top my adrenaline went into overload and I almost didn’t jump. However, I’m not one to back down easily and just reminded myself if it’s both terrifying and amazing then you should definitely pursue it. Easy to say #Day2 was perfection πŸ’› #100daysofhappiness #erada (at Rick’s Cafe)

It’s hard not to think of happiness as a constant feeling, but for me it isn’t. I know that sounds odd but I see this beautiful emotion as more of a series of fleeting moments that sometimes don’t even register until after they’ve gone. That’s the thing about life, when you don’t stop and let a moment consume you, you lose it. As I was walking home from school today with my host mom, I felt a slight breeze from the right that forced my head to turn. What I saw was a path, hidden behind some over hanging trees, leading up to the hills that I hadn’t noticed before. I was immediately intrigued by it and though I couldn’t explore it today, I can’t wait to return to it and see what gems it is keeping under wraps. This has been a perfect #Day1 and I can’t wait for the rest! #100daysofhappiness

Today is the day! The day I take on the #100daysofhappiness challenge! I know it won’t be easy, especially being without so many of the people and things that make me happy with no effort needed. Yet, I’m going to try my absolute hardest to revert to my optimist ways and make the most of every single day. I’m not naive enough to say the struggles of my peace corps service will disappear or I won’t feel sadness but I’m choosing to remind myself, even in the darkest moments that: pressure creates diamonds, happiness radiates and spreads to those around you, and if you desire to make a difference in the world, you must be different from the world. So here it goes, #namaste my loves πŸ’›

I don’t know how it is you are so familiar to me or why it feels less like I am getting to know you and more as though I am remembering who you are. How every smile, every whisper brings me closer to the impossible conclusion that I have known you before, I have loved you before, in another time, a different place, some other existence …

It’s amazing how when you leave a place you instantly find out the people that matter most. A friend should inspire you, listen to you, support you, laugh with you, dream with you, and make you more “you” Thanks for doing all of that and more for me these past 6 months BSTAN. You’re one of the greats and I miss you immensely! I’m so happy you are living out your dreams and loving every minute of it! Have the best day queen 🐝! Can’t wait till we’re neighbors again 😘
