Live Your Legend Blog Challenge Day 3
“What are you proud of?”
Hmmm. I guess I don’t really ponder that question very much.
A few years ago I spent almost a month traveling in Thailand, mostly by myself. I had met a friend there for a few days at the beginning and she taught me everything she had learned from her few days there. I didn’t feel afraid to be on my own, and neither did she. When it was time to part, we high-fived and went our separate ways.
I’m really proud of myself for being open to that experience and not freaking out even when things went sideways. It really helped me learn how to lean into my intuition and problem-solve my way without being overly-attached to outcome or plans. I developed a really loose structure for myself and the trip was peaceful, meaningful and inspiring.
I started doing a collage every day in my journal and posting it on Facebook to share the story of what I was learning about myself with my friends. Some people found the collage and writing really inspirational and some people thought I was having a mid-life crisis. Haha.
Maybe I was. But I like to call it a mid-life INSPIRATION. That trip was a tipping point for so many changes and so much personal growth. I felt like I was reclaiming parts of myself that I had ignored or abandoned for too long.
Looking back, I’m so proud of myself for following a path into the unknown and returning with the treasure of a different relationship with myself.
Now everything is a Thailand “ed-venture” as I find myself at home in my heart.
