We have it all wrong, rushing through life for the wrong reasons. We need to slow down and breathe and connect. That has always been my philosophy. I may have lost sight of it for a time, but now I’m starting to remember.
I am once again thinking about what moves me.
The sound of the ocean. The smile of a stranger. The smell of a new city. Words and music that really make you feel something. The unknown.
So this is my newest project, my best idea yet, if you ask me. Which I guess you are, since you’re here, reading. I am challenging myself to step a little further outside my comfort zone and make a habit of asking why not.
Because that’s what I used to do. That’s who I used to be. And I want to be that person again. The one that is fully engaged. The girl that jumps at new experiences and has a hunger to learn about other cultures, to just get out there and really live.
I will always refuse the 9 to 5. I will follow my impulses and forget about regrets. Give me passion over routine. I would rather die taking risks than live in fear.
My name is Jaime and I am a 29 year old female currently living in Cleveland, Ohio. I am originally from southeastern Virginia and I want to see the world.
Currently I am working on my 30 Before 30 project. What are you going to do this year to feel challenged?
