In February 2015 I started Wonderlost as an outlet to record my travel adventures while discovering my path. It began in a time of uncertainty – I had just quit a job I was unhappy in and I wasn’t sure what I was supposed to do next. But I knew that I had to begin a path to follow my dreams and “find myself.” (I know, I know, how very millennial of me…)
Wonderlost was named after the idea of being “lost in wonder” at the beauty of this world. A “lifetime” is over in the blink of an eye, and I wanted to make sure I started living a life I loved. I am so happy to say nearly three years later, life couldn’t be better. But while life is good now, I know that there are still ups and downs ahead of me. In times of happiness it’s important to be humble, and in times of hardship, it’s important to remember things will change.
The one thing I think we should always fight for is pursuing a life we love and to always follow our dreams. I recently uncovered a poem my grandfather wrote for me just one month after I was born. Re-reading this poem as an adult has touched my heart. His words mean so much to me and there is so much wisdom and truth in this poem. As 2017 draws to a close and 2018 is knocking on our doors, let’s all remember to follow our dreams. “Because in a world of unsure people, dreams are most certain to one person, yourself.”

Dreams can mean so much
to one. But can mean so
little to others.
Things we dream can last
forever, or be destroyed by
others and their expectations.
Those who dream, must
fight for their dreams; for
dreams do not come easy.
But for those who dream…
keep your fight and stand your
ground, because in a world
of unsure people, dreams
are most certain to one person,
