The world needs to hear your story. That’s what everyone kept telling me. It was 2012 and my mother had been diagnosed with stage 4 lymphoma. Cancer felt like a death sentence. I walked through a range of emotions that, at the time, I thought would kill me in the end. I decided to document my experience with death and grief in my first book Things I Wish I Knew Before My Mom Died because you know what…it didn’t kill me.

I’m currently trying to figure out what my 2017 budget will allow me to do. Traveling is my happy place, it keeps me sane and I want to do more of it.

I’ve already asked the Universe to bless me with more and I urge you to do the same when you go to write all of your New Year’s resolutions.

But with more sometimes comes the need to sit down every so often. Q4 was extremely busy for me and I would not have gotten through it all without practicing self-care (read my tips here).

We always think things are so simple but we are bound to forget while we are in motion and excited to get away. So here’s a few road-tested tips and tricks on how not to get sick on vacation for all my globetrotting friends!
