There you have it. The name of my new lifestyle/travel blog. Don’t worry, there will still be plenty of posts about books I’m sure. But this site, rosesreids.com, will be migrating to wanderingintentionally.com. It’s a long name, I know, but I’m hoping you guys can forgive me for that! Maybe I’ll change it at some point. Probably not. Because it embodies exactly what I am trying to do in this new blog.
If you have a second, allow me to explain.
Over the past year, I have experienced several things that have forever changed my life.
- My relationship with my mother became very strained, even to the point of no longer speaking.
- I got reconnected with a friend who is wise beyond her years and living a life that I’d only ever dreamed of.
- A very close friend was involved in a terrible wreck that nearly ended his life. Watching his recovery since then has also been a huge life-changer.
These seemingly small, subtle things made a huge impact in my life, and what I plan to do with my remaining years will forever be changed by them.
I don’t want to go the beaten path of college, marriage, family, retirement, death. It’s the single code that has been written out for all of us. The trail that has been blazed. But what about those of us who are trailblazers? Pathfinders? We don’t want to follow those who have beaten down the path before us. We’d rather make our own trails, or follow the deer paths through the fields.
That is what Wander Intentionally is going to attempt to showcase. I am trying to see if my trailblazing lifestyle of wandering with intention is going to work. And you guys get to sit back in a chair from the comfort of your own home to see if it does without taking any risks yourselves! (Although, I would 100% suggest the risk taking. Life is short after all.)
Thank you to all of my wonderful readers who diligently scanned my blog posts, ranting about books! Don’t worry, that nerdy book girl is still in me and very alive. I still read constantly. But she’s found a purpose (finally).
If you’re interested, join me over at wanderintentionally.com, where I’m attempting to be a pathfinder.
For the last time, later babes!
