Its been nearly 3 months since I got on that flight, for my umpteenth 'once in a lifetime journey', the one where you go find yourself. What does it mean really? When can you say you've found yourself? Even when you think you did, isn't life about constantly wanting & trying to be a better version of yourself?
At 30 yo, I thought I had it all figured out. Dream job, house, loving family & friends, all the things that make you think you're fulfilled, accomplished & happy.
I'm 31 yo & questioning everything in my life, even love. I now realise I haven't figured out anything [I know nothing]. What I do know, is that, somewhere during this 'find myself journey', I found, I've been burrying all the issues so deep & far inside not to feel the pain. Complete avoidance. Then put a bandade on all the wounds, the thicker the better. Then put a smile on your face. Then proclaim Life is good & all the bullsh*t about happiness that Instagram feeds you with. Best recipe for auto-destruction! Sadly, we all do it, as a basic human behavior for survival. We pretend everything is OK coz its easier than facing the painful truth. We constantly hide what we dont want to see or show. We wear rose tinted glasses.We call ourselves happy after an enriching experience (but happiness is different from pleasure). We hide the ugly with the pretty & we move on. We move on & we congratulate ourselves for being resilient, what a joke! This is not resilience. It's cowardice, pure lie, saving face. Society makes us this way: show yourself looking good, even if you're damaged. A whole lot of bullsh*t.
I didn't find myself. I did however found my past & she's a bitch - don't know how to deal with it yet. We all grow up with traumas of all kind & we all deal with them differently. They say, leave the past in the past, otherwise it will destroy your future. Not so true, its an other way of ignoring the truth. Instead, embrace your past, fully acknowledge it with all its demons, learn to live with them.
Don't be a victim of your past. Own your life, be your own hero & the master of your own reality, not a puppet of whatever pattern you were brought into.
Did you find yourself?
#MeetingPeopleOf : Nimbus Salmon Hatchery 🐟
It was neat to see this charming gem for salmon preservation, with its own artificial river ladder for salmons to jump up in and be caught for reproduction. We also got to feed the new spawn. And further up north of the stream was the salmon farm bred for eating, which came yummy in the form of Mikuni Mafia Roll.

Day 15 - Cruised into Seattle
This day was a relaxing ride up the coast which finished in Seattle. I got settled into my cozy Airbnb in Beacon Hill, surprised my Chinese hosts by practicing Mandarin, and used public transportation to get to and wander around Pikes Place. I took in this beaut of a sunset and found out Pikes Place is the wharf of Seattle.
