Believe it or not, letting myself enjoy staying in a beautiful and comfortable hotel was a gd hurdle. My usual vacations involve camping, penny pinching, meals over a camp stove, free lodging with friends, and split costs. Treating myself (full on TREATING mahself) in this way, was a practice that I wasn’t accustomed to. It felt good to give myself a safe space to breathe this trip; to throw myself into a foreign little town all day and come back to a place that felt a little like home every evening and let me marvel over its bourgeois charm. 🥰
Happy Birthday Yu He. It is a pleasure to have a best friend with two pronoun names. Also, I loved watching you leave our Uber calling the female driver, “sir”. Let’s make your 21st year the best Mami ❤️
It’s easy to watch worries and stress melt away when the most pressing decision I have to make each day is which direction to wander. De-throning familiarity and home, and allowing a new beautiful place to sit on the pedestal for a bit. I feel renewed and fulfilled. #Amsterdam you’re amazing.
🔶️ I always want create video that can make you deeply think about life. I don't love actually video about traveling, it's cool but I love more video, films, that can change your consciousness, can be useful for your reason. Which can makes you develop in some way.! I'm too bore person I guess, but I just the way I am.
Story about video: my vision.
Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves. The subconscious mind is shielding or showing numerous potential paths, based on what it determines would represent a consistent reality for you.Too many people today know the price of everything and the value of nothing. People always think that the most painful thing in life is losing the one you value. The truth is, the most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of valuing someone too much and forgetting that you are special too.
Never forget how rare you are.!
Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. To be a star, you must shine your own light, follow your path, and don’t worry about the darkness, for that is when the stars shine brightest. 🕎

Empowerment. To me, this looks like unapologetically giving myself the space to do what serves me (selflessly and selfishly) on this trip.
If this meant solo walks wandering the canals aimlessly, daily, so be it. If this meant watching Netflix in a bougie Amsterdam hotel, sue me. If this meant travel to a country, by myself, and allow myself the time and connection to meet strangers and not *stay* by myself, then I’m all for it.
What I’m not giving myself the space to do, is feel guilty for doing, or not doing ____________. There is no right or wrong way to navigate a challenging experience, and this experience is authentically, perfectly, beautifully kendra-flavored and mine. So I’m going to hug it, defend it, love it, hate it, regret it, enjoy it and more all while knowing that I am fulfilling what I need to be doing. I will also be capitalizing on this guilt-free liberty by eating my weights worth in stroopwafels and oliebollen.

Being this far away from everything I’ve ever known and loved — alone, nonetheless; is profoundly difficult and equally beautiful. .
I didn’t grow up traveling. There were no planes or foreign countries, only long road trips for camping up north. Always within the confines of a cozy car, family together. There has been no phase of my life spent traveling abroad discovering myself, or my affinity for French pastries, or testing my lack of language diversity. Instead, I’ve worked. I stayed close to home but not too close — I still took leaps and bounds, but my traveling was less about distance and more about depth of the experience. .
This #solotrip is teaching me to work on myself; pushing me to re-sensitize, to be open, and to welcome discomfort. 5/10 would recommend, but I’m sure that number will go up in a few days. #vulnerabilitywednesday#vulnerabilityeverydamnday
