#TBT to that time I floated on the #deadsea in the trip of a lifetime. 🌷
I was re-watching @ceceolisa #tedtalk because... goals, inspiration and the fact that I want to be like Cece when I grow up. (If you have not watched it, it is a must) Cece asks us to think what is that thing we are using as an excuse to opt out of the life we want... and boy, do I have a list of things/excuses. And I think of them often... they are in my list of to-do’s to work on. But you know what came to my mind when I was giving them another glance over... that there have also been times when I have wanted what I wanted so bad, that I pushed through those excuses and did exactly what my heart wanted to do.
This picture is a reminder of just that. I was in Israel, no one looked like me, I was wearing my bathing suit without a skirt or an over shirt, and I was extremely self-conscious. But there it was, the Dead Sea in all of its glory... I was half way around the world and I just could not come home without experiencing it. So I allowed myself to be vulnerable, while enjoying that moment to the fullest. 🌷
Many times we focus on what we have not done and forget to give ourselves credit for what we have done. Yes, I self-analyze to the point of my own detriment. And yes, we must become aware of what we want and where we are failing short so that we can get to work. But I find that reminding myself of those times when I actually pushed through, when I did not let my insecurities keep me from experiencing life, gives me confidence to do it again. 🌷
I sit on the sidelines a lot in my life, but I have also pushed through my insecurities to travel the world (the fears and excuses that can keep me home are endless). Why? Because I am an aimless wanderer and my heart is at its happiest when I am aimlessly wandering. 🌷
