What a send off! But, as many of us are all too familiar with, life takes us in a different direction and our focus is placed elsewhere. My year of adventure came to a halt during the first quarter after getting into a fender-bender with my roommate’s car (what a headache!….which also started my nasty habit of smoking again), and the daily grind and being a creature of habit smothered my desire to be adventuresome. There were times I wanted to get back on “Train 52″ , however, being embarrassed that I had let so much time pass by, I abandoned the campaign altogether. Over the past year and a half, I have experienced several personal challenges. I have learned life long lessons that have made me a much stronger, reflective, and authentic individual.
