Near the end of 2015, I started reading The Secret by Rhonda Byrne, and from there developed a greater belief in attracting one’s desires into their life. The power of putting pen to paper in order to make things more likely to happen is also a belief of mine. At the beginning of 2016, a personal resolution was to begin travelling more and enjoy new experiences. This then resulted in a decision to create a local travel wish list, for reference and for fulfillment.

Browsing through the visually-based Instagram network actually made way for the realization of many local treasures that exist outside of the comfort of my sweet bed. I previewed much more than just overcrowded venues and tourist-targeted attractions.

I proceeded to list places in Jamaica that I wished to experience. Most of them would be new experiences, while others were worth a second trip for better appreciation.

To date 40% of the original list has been checked off, and even gained [a lot] more additions since its inception. The desire to visit a new country that year was also present, which was instead met with three overseas trips; funny how some things work out, huh? I only hope to do even more going forward!
