There is nothing wrong with taking advice and learning from others, but make sure it aligns with your desires and passions. As you know I was recently injured when I was walking and got hit by a car. I was worried I would never be able to travel again. Gratefully I worked hard at physical therapy to feel more like myself to get on the airplane and I learned to ignore my continuous pain. I was never worried or anxious to fly on a plane in my life until my adventure in the Baltic began to approach fast. I was scared I would feel pain the whole time or be uncomfortable. I put on a good front and decided that the way I was feeling was not like myself at all. I lost my sparkle. I was sad and feeling down instead of smiling and feeling happy. I thought maybe I should not go on a trip because people around me were telling me I was crazy to travel since I was just injured, but you cannot always listen to people because then you will miss out on what you want to happen in your life. Instead of listening to others I listened to my heart. I knew something needed to revive my happiness and bring me back to life. I am wanderlust. Travel is what makes me happy and this specific trip to Estonia and Finland might have been a quick few days, but that is all I needed to help bring me back to life. I was blessed to be able to visit an area in the world I had never visited before. I fell in love once again. It was a spectacular experience and it was a wonderful way to begin the New Year 2017. I celebrated New Years Eve in the UNESCO protected old town Tallin, Estonia. I sat at a table with wonderful spirited people while overlooking the Christmas markets and had the enlightening experience to get outside to watch the fireworks as the next year began. The sights and sounds were unforgettable and there is just something about fireworks that make your whole body feel a sense of joy. I watched these beautiful colors light up the sky and the tops of the buildings located on the square light. At that moment I felt like myself again. I had just finished visiting a variety of sights and doing a lot of walking without anyone knowing I was ever injured. You have to have a positive mind to heal and stay strong both mentally and physically. Now my sparkle has returned and I am back to smiling everyday. I value experience instead of things. I love to learn and I do not take things at face value. You can study, read and listen all you want, but the real learning occurs when you take action and can gain a deeper understanding through experience. This trip helped me transform. I feel blessed for completing another amazing journey and as usual made intentions not resolutions for the upcoming year that include both health and happiness.
