The First half of June I was in Ecuador visiting family that I had not seen in over 10 years. I was surrounded by a tremendous amount of unconditional love still present after so long. I had cousins my age who wanted to hang out with me, laughing together, and sharing stories of life.
I returned home and was alone for the second half of June. I was busy working but quickly realized how much I enjoyed being surrounded by so many who loved me for me.
I had everything I ever wanted when I was with so many family members creating memories. It was the presence of others that mattered.
Appreciation has really opened my heart. June has reminded me of also honorably appreciating myself. That means staying true to what makes me happy and surrounding myself only with who and what is equally aligned.
Got the world figured out?
I did, until it came crashing down. I had no choice but to start over and rebuild.
