If you don’t like the story of your life, sometimes you just gotta throw the whole book in the fire... @timehop has been reminding me that this time last year I was the lowest mentally and physically in my adult life I’d probably ever been. Everything about my life was toxic, from the people I was spending time with, the behaviors I was engaging in, my job. Sparing the details, I hit my own rock bottom and felt like I had lost everything, and I realized that I had nothing to “show” for myself, no hobbies, no interests beyond partying and working out, all my energy was external and superficial. I took the first step in changing that by signing up to get scuba certified. It was something I had always wanted to do but had put off forever, and somewhere between pursuing something I loved purely for myself and accomplishing a goal… I woke up. I started this blog, began writing daily, networking more, going to bed early and museums instead of the club, and then in May I quit my job…the more time I invested in myself the happier I became, and the less content I was with only half living my life. Instead of passively participating I began to make conscious choices for myself, and a lot more healthy ones at that. You don’t realize it in the moment, but every small step you take toward improving yourself is a catalyst for change in ways you could never fathom. A year ago I thought I was trapped forever. I had no idea I would be in Tokyo today, my life in storage, traveling alone, with friends and family all over the world. That I’d have best friends that hype me up daily and tell me how much they love me and how proud of me that I am, people that guide me and help me instead of tearing me down with negativity and judgement. The longest relationship we’ll ever have is the one we have with ourselves and I’d been neglecting that in every way possible, so if you feel stuck somewhere or unhappy or you’re going through some shit I urge you to take the first step, even if it seems insignificant or pointless, it isn’t, a year from now you your life won’t be perfect but you just might be the happiest you’ve ever been, take it from someone on the other side! ♥️
“let’s just go out of state”.
I got a call on Monday 9 AM from my friend saying ^^^ ... um YES!.
So we ended up leaving to Huacho and Huarin for 1.5 days.
The things we discovered were priceless 🤗 .
📍 Travessa do Comércio é um dos poucos lugares da cidade que ainda preserva os traços dos tempos coloniais. Foi aberta antes de 1730, com o nome de Beco da Praia do Peixe Novo, em referência ao novo Mercado de Peixe que funcionava por ali.
SWIPE|| Was trying to score a decent shot with the coconut bough we found at the beach. This was the closest I got.☝🏻☝🏻☝🏻

Feeds don’t just come out beautifully as that. You have to break a sweat. 😜🏖💦
Why do people feel the urge to get away from time to time?
I don’t know... maybe it’s for clearing the head and heart? Getting new experiences? Somehow the unfamiliar feeds our curiosity and creativity. What do you travel for?

The more of Mexico I know, the more fascinated I am by this amazing country. 🇲🇽 New Mexican travel destination: Zacatecas ☑️ I am totally in love with this colonial city and I hope I will get lost again in its beautiful streets very soon.
Comenta qué prefieres, ¿té o café? 😱
Durante mi primer día de tour en Bali, me llevaron a conocer una plantación de café en la villa Temen ☕️
Me dieron a degustar 12 tipos distintos de cafés y té 🙌🏻
Ya estaba terminando el tour, por lo que era justo y necesario esta pequeña recarga energética 👌🏻
During my first day of tour in Bali, I was taken to see a coffee plantation in Temen Villa. I got to taste 12 different types of coffee and tea. The tour was already ending when I went there, so this small energy recharge was totally necessary.
Comment what do you prefer! Tea or coffee? 🙌🏻
Just let go. Let go of how you thought your life should be, and embrace the life that is trying to work its way into your consciousness 💛🧡 .
Am I the only one who loves a good sunset? 😍 I am obsessed. B.C. has been showing off the last few days and I for one, am pumped about it 💃
