Day 2: The Reality of it All

Looking toward the hills in El Salvador.

Today was amazing.

Traveling with coworkers for work was an opportunity I did not think I would get this year, or even next year for that matter.  I was resigned to the fact that it wasn’t my time, and perhaps it never would be. But here I am, with seven co-workers, on a two-day quick pace visit in a foreign country.
The landscape is lush and green, cars drive fast, people cross the road where ever they want to, and pop-up vendors on every major street.
The most remarkable thing? The people.  Everyone has been incredibly kind and friendly. It almost seems that life is lived more lightheartedly and people work to live their lives to the best of their ability.  To pursue what makes them happy.
And I think that must be what life is all about.  
It makes me think more about what I am doing with my time here on Earth, am I living to work, or working to live?  Do I actively pursue what brings me happiness on a daily basis?  I certainly want to make myself happy.
Are you pursuing the activities that make you smile and bring you pleasure?
Food for thought.  I’d love to hear about what you are doing to live your life fully for you.
with joy,

  1. Yes. I am taking control of my future and letting go of the things which I cannot control. Reading an amazing book called “Shift Happens”, in it they explain that you cannot control what happens around you, you can only control how you react to those happenings. So true!! I wish you nothing but the best sweetie, you are an open heart & mind and others should aspire to be the same! So happy you got to travel abroad!
