It’s been an aperol spritz kind of few days
Landing in Italy over the weekend
Eating, a lot
And feeling more comfortable here than expected
Some have said a week in Venice is too long, but I personally enjoy spending longer periods of time in new cities and countries. I feel a little less like a tourist, although, I definitely am.
I’ve also been feeling a little guilty
“I should be eating less pasta”
“I should be working more”
“I should be exercising more”
“I should stop indulging in these damn aperols every afternoon”
I’ve entered a new chapter, and I am so happy to be here
I have a lot to learn
Are these feelings stemming from my old negative patterns?
Should I actually be switching up my behavior?
Is this a test?
Maybe my mind just wanders
But I also can’t help but feel I’m not alone with these thoughts
As my routines adjust to each new place, I’m learning to embrace kindness more than ever.
This is my path
This is okay
I just want to remind us all that sometimes we’re experiencing certain things because it’s setting us up for what we’ve asked for.
It’s something to learn from.
We just need to enjoy
So take a moment today
Look in the mirror, or simply close your eyes
And say out loud, or in your mind
Something kind to yourself
Something you’re grateful for that you’ve created in your life
Practice this on a daily basis, I promise you’ll start looking at yourself differently
Take action, rest, practice kindness, and embrace your own unique journey
We were not put on this earth to be the same. at Venice, Italy
