Going away on a trip to Puerto Rico made me realized the beauty of Mother Nature, and most importantly the beauty of connecting with yourself.
I also realized I became too dependent on a man .. Maybe because I needed a father figure and looked for it in every relationship that I could find. I’m not saying it is bad to rely on your significant other, but in my case I was doing it because I didn’t think I could rely on myself.. I needed to stop it with that mentality. Now I’m learning I can depend on myself, and it’s actually a journey I appreciate more and more. I know too many of us stay in relationships so we won’t feel empty or alone. I know that being alone can be challenging but I also come to know that “being with yourself” is okay too, and it’s the best relationship you can actually be in before being with someone else.
When I got on top of that boulder I was scared that I would fall or hurt myself. But I thought to myself.. hey, I do go to the gym, so I went for it…and survived. We are stronger than we think. Once I finally made it, I began to reflect. The first thing I did was thank God for the amazing trip. I also thought of my family and friends. I even thought of my relationship, one that I had completely neglected because I got so involved with superficial things. Being there and overseeing the beauty of creation allowed me to see that I’m actually not that big, that I’m only one human amongst a powerful world. I realized I needed to do what would make ME, happy from within, and to not be scared to take chances ..because I’m always scared.
I don’t like hearing the word “ no” so I don’t go for it .. I don’t like rejection so I don’t ask for anything .. But that was then and this is now. I learned that we can move mountains, not the ones in pictures or the one that I climbed, but the ones within our hearts. So if ever go on trip, take a moment to look at the sunset, take a moment to breathe it all in .. Take moment to believe in you. Take a moment to thank the universe for existing and for your existence. Thank God for the presence of his love. Lastly if you have a person love remind everyday and thank them for everything they for you. Don’t get so busy you FORGET,
