4 IN THE MORNING
And just like that, I was histrionically blazing. Wanting to kick ass with every fibre of my being. Feeling all kinds of emotions. Using my thoughts as my ink to clear my brain of the gunk. I got out of bed. Ran to get my journal. Out of the room, a tea, and then back again. My pen hit the paper. I aimlessly wrote my heart out. I was full with rage. Im realizing that all the things I hate about at that very moment were really the things I love most about it. I hate it that it’s been fvckng raining for more than 2 months now (but I love it that i have the excuse to stay in and watch my series). I hate it that im hourssss away from the city (but I love it that this has been my least busy life and that I have enormous amounts of time to lay, rest, reflect, dream and plan). I hate it that I extremely feel what I feel (but I love it that it makes me think deeply and enables me to patch myself up). I hate it that people come and go (but I love it that the best people stay). I hate it that relationships are challenged (but I love it that it stretches and challenges me in ways I dont want to be stretched and challenged). I hate it that some things, even more so - my patience, has its limits (but I love it that it puts me right back to the very definition of love). Most of all, I hate it that it’s so difficult to be kind when I have no kindness left in my heart... but I love it that my heart bounces back easily, especially when it’s for the people I care most about. Anyways, i dont have it all together now. I am feeling all the feels. Picking up all the hints that may have overlooked. The good. The bad. The ugly. Trying not to make decisions based on emotions. But still... choosing to sleep with a fearlessly loving and grateful heart. Okay. It’s been a long time but #sorrynotsorry for yet another obnoxious long post lol
I'm happy out here.
Messy hair, dirty feet & wild water on my skin.
Out here with the wild things;
this is where I belong. . . . .
Would you rather dress up and explore a city or go casual and relax on the beach?
After my last blog post I received a message from someone telling me that I live in LaLaLand. Apparently regional victoria is UGLY, not the pretty place I describe. I guess it all depends on your perspective doesnt it. I'm the kinda person who notices pretty things, because, well, I like pretty things. I also value heritage and want it protected for this reason. Every city has its pretty and its ugly if you take the time to notice and appreciate. So here's a not so pretty travel destination for you... 📷:@findingfemme

Week Forty Three: Belize 🇧🇿
✘ Day two of the ridiculous travel story series 😂 So we were in The Galapagos 🐢 back in April (yeah I know goals huh 😉 scroll down my feed for pics 📷 ) it was our first day on Santa Cruz Island 🌴 we headed for the famous Charles Darwin research centre 📡 where hundreds of the famous giant tortoises live (including the stuffed Lonesome George 🤗). We were SO excited to be there & see these BEAUTIFUL creatures 😍 serious once in a lifetime! 💃🏻 We headed around pen to pen in absolute awe, snapping away 📷 in utter disbelief we were even there. 😬
✘ Next minute I know we were walking down this pathway towards the exit & a woman 👩🏻 started calling for me. I turned around & was faced with a woman in park ranger style gear. 🤔She said quite bluntly ‘sorry but two people from my group said you just got in a pen with one of the tortoises you so realise that is 🚫 ’ 😱 I literally nearly fell on the floor. I was so shocked & embarrassed to be accused of such a thing I shouted ‘WTF are you going on about?’ Lol. Typical Flo style 😂 she looked at me like I just undone all the work Charles Darwin had ever done on this planet 🌎 she didn’t even believe me!!!!! My first thought was ‘who the hell hates me enough to accuse me of such a thing 😂’ it basically ended up me shouting at the woman for 10 minutes & cursing the entire tour group 😂 I mean really wtf was even going on 😂 I was so worked up I spent the next hour in tears 😂 Bloody Americans had seen me stand on a step in front of a pen & thought I had god damn CLIMBED IN 😭 what is life 😭 who would even climb in for starters & secondly report me & they didn’t even know what they saw 😶 I LOVE YOU TORTOISES 🐢❤️ #Belize#CayeCaulker#piesliesandthighs 🥧
