I am sure I mentioned this at some point during this blog journey that Portland is my favourite parish. There is something about being there that relaxes and enriches me in ways I simply cannot explain. It’s physically beautiful , some parts are  well developed but others are absolutely untouched. It’s a wonderful juxtaposition that the old soul in me really appreciates.

There is just something about being in a new place and having new experiences that will never get old to me. Whenever I organise vacations or trips I make it a point to really see the place , I don’t just want to go and lay down on the beach or in the hotel I want to really experience the place. I get a strange joy from planning the trip itself ; the research and organisation that goes into  a trip should never be discounted but when you actually get on the road or  (cough cough) the plane it’s more than worth it.  My mind works best with some semblance of structure so planning helps me to have a more fulfilling experience . I usually don’t get into the time constraints and nitty gritty details but I will always have a  general idea of the plan for the day which is necessary when your list of activities is longer than your trip and deeper than your pockets.

When it came to new experiences I did have a few in my last trip which involved visiting a Maroon Town, Rafting on the Rio Grande and of course late night manish water and jerk chicken runs.  Call it wanderlust or an overactive mind but as soon as I return from a trip my thoughts are always on planning the next one. (I’ve already started planning a trip for my birthday 5 months away , don’t judge me.) I used to always laugh when people say that your 20s are the time for travel and exploration because travel is expensive af and us 20-somethings got responsibilities and shit. The luxury of travel is a beautiful thing and until I can afford my jet setter dreams I will continue to explore the many treasures my country has to offer.

What is a vacation without the customary  semi candid but kinda awkward photos? Check out a few from my trip!

 

Do you have a favourite parish or a favourite place? Please share , I’m always looking for additions to my travel list.

Balancing Act

Copy of Borders..jpgIt’s been two months since my last post , time flies when you’re having fun..or does it? I’m not too sure. The last few months have been somewhat of a whirlwind and as I have mentioned in many previous posts I’m not very good at writing when my mind is clouded and crowded. So here we are…it’s July , we’re half way through the year , where has the time gone?  What have I been doing with my liiiiiife?? *insert screams of anguish and despair*

In truth , I haven’t been doing too bad. I just had some lychee for dinner so that’s a plus. Somewhere throughout the course of the last two months  I found myself new employment which is keeping me terribly busy but it’s work that interests me so I can’t complain. I’ve also been blessed with a mentor , something I’ve been trying to get for a little while now so I am definitely looking forward to that journey. I feel like I’m coming into my own , I feel that way at least once per year where I just sense that I am on the right path and that blessings will soon follow. The trick is staying in that mental space long enough for the manifestation to take place. I’ve been feeling a little misaligned lately…I’ve been veering to one side of my life and my personality and it has just been throwing off my interactions and my overall well being. Balance is one of the most important guiding principles of my life and I strive to always work towards achieving that in my life and my relationships. Once I do I feel so at peace with myself and the universe , in those moments anything is possible.

Do you have any tips for achieving balance in your life? How do you practice self-care?

Love and Light,
