Happiest When Exploring’s One Year Anniversary! + Announcement

May 31, 2016,


I’m retiring.

Happiest When Exploring began exactly one year ago, in May 2015.

It’s our one year anniversary… and I’m retiring.

That’s right.  

The blog inspired many new adventures: from Costa Rica to Hungary and Poland, to the South of Italy

But now, I’m retiring (…quitting sounds too harsh!)

But wait.. I’m not retiring in the traditional sense. 

Nope – I’m not “hanging up my hat” for good.

Instead, I’m retiring my ego.

(Okay, so I sorta tricked you there!)

But for real, I’m retiring my ego this year.

In year 2 of HWE, I’m #retiringmyEGO and will be writing about more than just travel – and P.S. I’m officially “coining” that hashtag 😉 

Because as much as I love travel and exploring, I’m also interested in other things (I am a pretty well-rounded human being, after all!) and I’m finally ready to quit my ego, and explore those topics (and share them with you!) 

I’m interested in (and will slowly start to incorporate posts/content about) relationships, health, alternative healing and lifestyle, and “happiness”: seeking it, uncovering it, defining it, and finding it.

And I think you are, too. 

We are halfway into the year but it’s never too late to make a commitment to yourself and set some new (maybe strange) goals!

Let’s spend more time in joy, in happiness, as our true selves (whatever that make look like, or mean, for YOU!)

Will you retire your ego & choose happiness? 

It’s time to #quityourego #retireyourego

    I’m on board! Whenever I am all wrapped in my ego, my spirit is nowhere to be seen and heard and I’m not happiest doing anything!

    I love that hashtag…have a great day wherever you are now-in the world and in your spirit!
