March 2018 Roundup on Go Seek Explore
Since Go Seek Explore expands on other platforms aside from this website, I thought I'd put together a monthly roundup of the happenings and content I'm sharing both on and off the blog!
Here are the goings-on from March 2018 (also, can you believe it's almost April?!):
I've been extremely busy over the past several months, though I snuck away to Vegas for a quick two days at the beginning of March!
We stayed at the Palazzo - I couldn't get enough of this amazing view!
Over the past year, I started to allow more time for self-care and self-development practices during my weeks, and introduced some new rituals to my regular routine.
Having these 10 rituals be part of my life indirectly affected my life, and in turn, my travel and career goals.
Are you following on Instagram?! I post there most often.
Hit "follow" for quick tips on creating a work + travel lifestyle, inspirational quotes, and motivational captions on life & travel.

You can’t grow if you don’t understand your own programming >>> aka why you do what you do. ::: When you have a stronger self-awareness, you can focus on YOUR strengths and passions that will lead to you doing what YOU want to do.

You know the phrase “you are what you eat?” . The same thing applies to the five people you spend most of your time with. . It applies to the content you consume on social media. . It applies to the news you pay attention to. . If “you are what you eat,” then maybe it’s important to take a look at who and what you surround yourself, how you spend your time, and how you view the world. . It can be easy to get sucked into fake news, gossip, comparison on social media & keeping up with the “Joneses”..... . So I ask: if what and who you surround yourself with greatly influences your life...how can you add more positivity, lightness, and good energy to your everyday life? 🙂✌️ . 📸 by @thejessicajourney
