I have been taking some time to recuperate, recombobulate, and reflect after being away for 2 weeks. I have come to realize that everything that was fun, amazing, and enjoyable happened because I made a decision to let go. I allowed myself to go with the flow. I let things happen the way they were meant to happen. I tried my hardest not to control everything, instead I just LET IT BE. This lead to a trip to the museum alone, which at first, was super scary and uncomfortable. Little did I know, I would meet a new friend, who I will be friends with forever. One of my coworkers and I took a drive to the beach. We didn't know where we were going, but we just went. That's how we found the beautiful view below along with a romantic walk along the beach in some random, small town. We joked that it was like we were on a date 😸 I spent long nights at the hotel just talking and joking around with my coworkers, now forever friends. Maybe we should have gone to bed sooner than 5 am, but hey, it will be a time I cherish forever. The trip to the airport was quite the adventure and an almost disaster. I drove around Providence, RI to get a feel for the vibe. I couldn't find parking to check out some of the cute shops I saw. I forgot to fill the gas tank before droping the rental off.. whoops 😳 I forgot my receipt at the gas station.. Let's just say I was a little stressed about missing my flight. Luckily, I got through security in no time at all. I wandered my way to the bar for lunch. There, I met another new friend. She opened my eyes to some amazing opportunities out there in the big world. She gave me hope that this journey we call life will lead me to what's best for me, whatever that may be. I just have to keep on moving forward and trusting the journey. On my flight to Connecticut, I was reading the Tao of Pooh. If you have troubles going with the flow,I suggest reading that book. Worring about what's next really isn't serving you. Trying to control and calculate every situation doesn't help. Forcing an outcome to happen is really just a waste of energy. We could all benefit by living a little more like Pooh. All we have to do start embracing every adventure!
