Breakups

Did you recently breakup with your partner? Thought they would be the love of your life? Struggling through the stages? It’s okay I got your back. Ill give you three tips to get through a breakup.

No Contact Rule

You and your ex broke up for a reason. Never forget you’re strong and are very capable of doing this. The no contact rule needs to take place in order to truly grieve and heal. By not doing so you are only slowing down the process.

Accept Your Emotions

That’s right let it all out! You should never feel bad about feeling bad. This is a natural process called grieving. Just as you do when you lose a loved one. Accept the sadness, anger, loneliness, whatever it may be. Just know it will be okay.

Self-Love

Got get that degree! Go travel! Before loving another person you must love yourself. If you lost yourself in your relationship find it again. Remember, who you are and what you love. Remember, your favorite cafe? Go there and get a coffee and write a list of 5 things that make YOU happy. Don’t forget to nourish your body as well to complete your healing from inside to out.

At the end of the day never forget your goals and how much of a beautiful person you are. Love should never hurt emotionally, physically, etc. So, whatever the case may be never doubt your decisions. When you have that gut feeling trust it. Lastly, pain is temporary but choosing to be happy is forever. Just breath and know this too shall pass.

Thanks for reading!

Where Have I been? It’s 2018?

 

As you all may have noticed I have been absent from my blog for a long time; I don’t really have any reason other than an unmotivated heart. Writing is something I love to do but sometimes shit happens.

We all reach a time in our life where we are adrift and uncertain of what to do next. After I graduated college I was devoted and dead set on traveling and living in my dream. However, life had its own plan which was a bit hard to swallow but you just take it with a grain of salt. For sometime, I had almost given up my dreams and aspirations but getting up every time after you have fallen is the best part. People close to me did/do not support my aspirations and probably never will. It can be hard to go through hardships and endeavors when you feel alone but look I’m still here. I know what makes me happy and what I want; that’s the most important part. My life is mine not anyone else’s. People are always so infused in everyone else’s life, when yet they don’t even look at their own. Constant pressures and negative thoughts from others can affect you but only if you let it. DO WHAT YOU WANT!

I write this blog not only to show travel tips and my experiences but to hopefully give at least one other person the hope and encouragement they need. Thanks for reading my sappy post and hope to be back soon. Much love.

I’m Back with a Surprise

Hey!

How is it going? Good? Well, I’m glad to hear that. I have not been writing in my blog very frequently due to life and such. This time around I want to make more of an effort to get back to blogging more. As it is something I enjoy very much.

These past few months have had many ups and downs, it has been crazy. Since graduating college in May well you could say things didn’t go as planned. That is alright though because I learned that everything happens for a reason, some things are not meant to work out.

It is especially difficult as my pursuit is unlike others whom hold the american dream dear to their heart. That is not my ideal life. My journey has been interesting one could say and some call me crazy but that is okay. My dreams are my dreams and I refuse to let others opinions change what I want. Other people will always have something to say no matter what you do. That is why I just don’t care what others think because in reality they are just unfulfilled with their own lives.

The year 2016 has ultimately been like getting hit by a plane but yet one of my best years at the same time. I traveled to places I would have never imagined in my wildest dreams. I once stood looking over an Island in Croatia and that’s where I promised myself to always follow my dreams and travel the world. I am thankful for everything because in the end it was a huge learning experience for me.

Just know if you’re a recent college graduate you may be confused and lost but don’t worry I have been there and you will figure it out. All in time my friend.

Stay tuned: I will be having a surprise for everyone
