Riding the Wave!

Not having the ability to travel or go out and view the amazing wonders of the world and just enjoy life has been such a downfall moving back to the states! Every day since moving back I have wished to just pick up and go back to a world that was just so stress-free and pressure-less. The pace of being back has just become so fast and easy to make mistakes. To date faster, love faster, age faster, work faster; yet missing all the signs of if we actually enjoy what we are doing or gaining any results. Living life so fast that we are missing what it’s like to actually live and love and be in tune with oneself. Finding qualities in people and things to understand why you enjoy it in the first place or why you know something is not for your own benefit. After really searching within for the past couple of weeks, Life has taught me to just, 

                    RIDE THE WAVE! 

To literally ride out the waves that I find interest in and not try to move so quickly that the wave engulfs me. To not let the waves I have in my life, whether big or small take advantage of my drive to succeed.  Some of our waves are smaller and it’s simple to ride them out. But for the rest of us, our waves are bigger and stronger that if we are not ready for them, they will wipe us out instantly. If we continue to forget about enjoying the little things and waiting for the next best thing, we will never be satisfied with what we have! Grab your board, pop-up, and take pride in taking the time to understand the wave ahead. #Surfsup! 

    New Journey: Traveling Towards my Passion! 

    A year ago I would have never thought I would be where I am today. Starting this travel journey has been absolutely amazing! I have dreamed of traveling to different countries all my life and now that I have gotten the opportunity and have checked off some amazing places off my bucket list, I am overjoyed with happiness. But now I ask myself, What am I doing outside of traveling and posting on social media? Since traveling has been a childhood goal, do I let the rest of my childhood goals fall to the waist side because I completed one? 

    ABSOLUTELY NOT! 

    Yes it’s awesome to have been on this travel journey but there’s so much more that I want to accomplish. It’s great to have been able to go to a new country every month but I also want to further my education. The time has come to where I have to choose. I have to make the decision to pause one to do the other which is why I paused traveling the WORLD and now traveling towards my PASSION. With my backpack full of books on my shoulder and this year long path ahead, I will be more focused on getting A’s on my tests than stamps In my passport. I will be more focused on standing in line for new books than standing in line for security. 


    I am beyond thrilled to have had the opportunity to travel but for me, I have to get back focused to the task at hand and that’s pursuing this higher level education! Eventually I’ll be able to get my passport back out and see the world and hope you’ll join me! 

    No worries, I will still be updating on my AMAZING vacation this summer! 🙂 

    Stay tuned and wish me luck! 😘😘
