Well, it’s been a minute since I let you all know my 2018 word of the year; FREEDOM and you're probably wondering what I’ve been up to the last couple of weeks. If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you know that I spent the first week of the year in Cuba. Cuba was such an amazing trip. I enjoyed learning about the culture and connecting with the people. The people of Cuba are so hospitable, humble and endearing. They are passionate and eager to share their country with us and if you haven’t been yet, you really, really should go. Especially since it is once again becoming increasingly harder to do. Believe me, you won’t regret the trip. I am so grateful that I went and plan to return within the next year.
After my Cuba trip, only a couple of days later, I was in the air again traveling down to Long Beach, California to see one of my best friends. She relocated to Long Beach last October and I haven’t had a chance to get down to see her. I had missed our Sunday brunches and mid week check-ins and had been looking forward to this visit for weeks. As soon as I arrived, we immediately got to work with catching up on everything from life, love and musings on our careers. She showed me around her new town and we had some delicious Thai Calamari from Gladstone’s. If you’re ever in the area, you should definitely check it out. The food, drinks and service was excellent and I’ll definitely return when I go back. Sunday we spent a few hours at Seal Beach relaxing and soaking up the sun. Although my trip was short, it was just what I needed. Never underestimate the power of a quick girls trip.
I also spent some down time during my travels to really think about what I wanted this year to look like for me. I created a vision board to keep me on track.
Of course, there is lots of travel happening this year, because….Where2Next? and focusing on believing in myself to manifest all that I am dreaming about. You’ll notice that there is blogging, wellness, love, breakthroughs and balance on my vision board. Just a few of the things that I will focusing on this year. All which is in alignment with “Freedom.” I am allowing myself not to get too crazy with the planning and just going along with the flow. That doesn’t mean I don’t have a good idea of Where2Next?, it just means that I am letting go of the need to control every step along the way. This way, it allows me to just be in the “flow” of things. Allowing things to unfold, switch, pivot or divert without feeling “lost” or “out of sync” trusting that what is for me, is for me and that I don’t always know the “HOW” or the “WHEN” and that’s okay. Uncertainty doesn’t have to scare me and make me lose focus. Knowing that I have been abundantly blessed thus far in my life helps keep things in perspective. I am GROWING. I was at a crossroads, but I have chosen my path. I have prayed about it and have let it go with the trust that the universe will deliver. I have chosen my intuition over my ego. I have chosen my faith, over my fears. I have chosen my gut, over the self-limiting beliefs that creep into my mind. I have chose Freedom in all its glory and magnitude. The Universe is delivering for me and my hands and heart are wide open to receive the abundance and prosperity already destined to me. I pray the same for you.
Love & Light,
