I can’t believe how fast the year has gone. A new school year has already started for some people and we are a few months away from the holidays. I look back and I ask myself where did my year go? (and on that note where did the summer go?) What happened to all the promises I made myself? This time last year I took my first trip by myself to the Philippines. There was nothing more exhilarating than going venturing off by myself and I learned a lot about myself while doing so. This trip may have given fuel for the idea of going back and exploring more of what that country has to offer, as well as, the countries surrounding it. It looks like now is a good time to start planning a trip to go back.
I’ve been thinking a lot about what’s important to me lately. I’ve been really frustrated with certain things in my life that aren’t really feeding me the challenges and creativity I need and I realized I should focus on what makes me happy instead. The other things won’t matter at the end of the day and all that frustration isn’t healthy. So I’ve been wasting time with those whom I love and working on a lot of different projects…one of them being this blog. I want to share with you guys my journey around the world and my journey through life because at the end of the day traveling really brings me more joy than anything else in the world. (I’ll be going on a road trip with my sister soon so stay tuned for that post!)
I was told vulnerability is a good thing and it will make you stronger. So today I decided to show the world who I am in all my vulnerability with no makeup! Writing this blog and pursuing all the other projects I have going on…that makes me vulnerable too. But I know I can’t go forward if I don’t at least try.
What makes you vulnerable? I challenge everyone to do something that you’re scared to do or to say something you’ve been wanting to say…whatever it is that makes you vulnerable. Try it out and you’ll see it makes you stronger!
