Vacation was amazing and eye opening because it made realize that the world is so much bigger than the tiny island that I live on. I was on the mainland for only a week, but damn there was just so much to explore. There was always something new to see everyday and I always had to GPS! (I could also just suck at navigating). Either way, it was both exciting and terrifying for me.
While I was in LA, I couldn’t help but feel slightly terrified. Could people tell that I was an outsider? Was I following the rules, the culture? What do I do if I get lost?? There were so many questions running through my head, but all I could do was take it one day at a time. I lived in the moment and enjoyed every single minute that I was there.
One week later and I’m back to reality feeling contained and stuck again. The feeling of freedom, the feeling of exploring.. it made me feel excited. I would love to feel that again. The vacation was supposed to help me feel more relaxed and ready to return to work, but it did more than that. I feel even more motivated to pursue my goals and live the life that I want. Writing and drawing and being out of the 9-5 grind. I will keep reaching and I will keep pushing forward until my dream becomes a reality. Until then, I just have to breathe and push forward.
