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.

Chaos

Hello!

It has been some while since I have written, two months roughly. Right now my life is in a bit of a chaos. The high from traveling is no more and I am beginning to see reality. Right now my travel plans are on hold as I am unsure of where I will be going or if I am going. I think at this point in my life I have many things to figure out, then maybe I can travel. No matter where you run or go your problems will follow.

I think all college graduates go through this, an initial reaction of wtf am I doing with my life? It’s one of those things that is not talked about much, people just say enjoy your years of college as it will be the best years of your life. When you’re in college you think no way how can this be the best years of my life? Quizzes, tests, research that’s no fun (sarcasm). When you look back though you will realize it really was, the best years of your life. College was one of the best learning experiences and I made life long friends that made it even better.

Now, I can only hope and pray for the best to come. As my future is unknown but I will keep looking for what is right. Remember, always do what makes you happy!
