Three cities, two countries, one trip. 

I’ve heard the best way to truly know you’ve found the one is to travel the word with him.  Well tomorrow my love and I will embark on this journey. We will be traveling to Athens, santorini, and Venice. Hopefully we will be able to take Day trips to different cities as well.  I will try to continually keep updates about our trip rather than one large post at the end.  Stay tuned guys and travel with me through my words.

And oh, it is my 28th birthday!!

Punta Cana: Views from the other side

So, it’s wedding season. I’m not exactly sure who dubbed this season as wedding season—but I don’t make the rules. My brother proposed to an amazing woman and they will be getting married in September. With all weddings comes the bachelorette party! My soon-to-be sister-in-law invited me to partake in her bachelorette festivities. The destination was Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. When I initially learned of the destination I was hesitant. My hesitiaton stemmed from all the negative things i’ve heard and read about how Dominicans have historically treated darker skin people and people of Haitian decent.

What I learned was one should never let the opinions or even experiences of others define your own views and perceptions. The island was absolutely beautiful and the people were very welcoming.  There were some people that were rude and tried to scam us, but they accounted for a small minority of who we actually encountered. Punta Cana was different than other islands. Specifically,  I’ve noticed that on other island the people speak english. In Punta Cana, Spanish was truly the language of the country and it was difficult finding an someone to translate.

Lastly, my favorite part was the diversity of tourist. We met people from all of the world enjoying the island just as we were.  Be young. Be free. and travel.

Leap of Faith or Push of Faith ?

I’ve always heard people say that a person will never feel ready, but rather a person must be willing to take a leap of faith and go after their dreams. After all, fear isn’t real. Fear is something that we internalize. Fear is something that is made up. We fear because we imagine things and scenarios that may never come into existence. Fear is actually caused by the unknown. I’ve also heard that when a person desires something the whole universe conspires to give it to them. So what happens when a person desires something but fear precludes them from taking that leap of faith?

Then, I suppose a person would experience what I like to call a “push of faith”. A push of faith occurs when a person is forced to follow their desires instead of waiting for the right moment. After all, there never really is a right moment.

As I start attracting  my first few clients, I realized that maybe this was a “push of faith”. I had this dream, but in my mind  I needed several things in place before I actually set out to fulfill my desires.  I was often, and still am, very fearful. But I truly believe this was a push of faith because I was scared to take that leap.
