Wherever You Go, There You Are
We think that being somewhere different will make us different, but that never happens. If anything, we just become more of who we are.
The freedom to explore and be spontaneous when traveling is the best thing about it because traveling sparks magic and serendipity, but only if there's room for it to happen.In the midst of all this, and the whole point of this piece of writing, is to present a brief moment to you all which was one of the highlights of my trip.
It was the day after the ugly cry. I was so tired, but had still done a walking tour because I had booked it way in advance (lesson learned - unless they are very difficult tickets to get, wait to book 'cuz you might not feel like it.)
I had lunch at a Japanese-chain restaurant called Itsu, close to the Charing Cross tube. When I walked in I was extremely thirsty, hungry, and tired. And I really, really had to pee.
When we act boldly and authentically, we give others permission to do the same.I will never forget that moment with that young man because it was an answer to a prayer, and a very brief moment of deep and honest connection.
Life is magic.
I'm wonderful just exactly as I am. So are you. Let's embrace who we are so that we can fully expand our wings and fly through life like the badass birds we were meant to be.
