Hello everybody! I know it’s been about a month! I have been super busy with basketball season starting up for my oldest son and I also just got back in town and situated after taking my second trip of the year! Which brings me to my topic for today! GET EXCITED!
“Cierra you’re glowing!”
This is a picture from my recent trip to Orlando the last week in January. That was my 6th trip I’ve taken in the last year and a half.
This is me just last weekend at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon making this my seventh trip away from life in the last year and a half.
Before August of 2016, I had traveled a handful of times. Only one time had I actually taken a family vacation for more than a week. As I entered adulthood, if I was lucky, once a year I would take a weekend trip away with my girls.
They were fun but let’s be honest, after rushing from work on Friday night and driving a few hours to the next major city, we only had one full day to cram in as much as we could, before heading out on Sunday, to be back at work on Monday morning.
That’s technically not a relaxing vacation.

What’s changed? A year and a half ago, I made a decision that I would enjoy life more for myself and for my kids. Two years ago I lost my youngest brother and he had never been out of the state of Ohio.
Losing him caused a period of depression for myself and it also caused financial burdens which increased the depression.
I’m thankful I was able to find a way to look forward to living again and I found it in TRAVEL. Phoenix, Dallas, Miami, Orlando, and Vegas THREE times, have given me something to look forward to in between the days which can be stressful as a mother and a nurse.
Family, friends, and even my PATIENTS have noticed the change in my attitude, my mind, my heart, and even my skin! Some health benefits of travel include; Staying healthier, stress reliever, boosts creativity, increases happiness, and can lower depression.

Not only have I found something for me. It’s also something I can do with my sons and give the the peak life experiences I didn’t have. This is just the beginning of our journey. Thank you all for following!
My question for you is what is going on in your own life, that will be the reason you decide to make a positive change TODAY?
