Almost two years ago, I had the opportunity to go to Italy for 2 weeks. All. By. Myself.
This was one of the best trips of my life and one of the best moments in my life. You see, this trip was more than a work trip and lavish vacation tied into one for me. It was the time I found the self-love and acceptance I so desperately needed. It was the season of life that I was alone and I was finally okay with that. It was me growing closer to God and thanking him for the many things I had questioned about in my life just three years prior. It was me being so proud of myself and all that I’ve done. And it was me pushing myself out of my comfort zone farther than I ever thought possible. I met so many new people on this trip from all over the world and heard their stories. I learned that no matter the country and cultural differences, we all experience similar struggles whether it’s love or figuring out what we want to do in life. I look back at this video that I made and always smile. Not only am I reminded of the amazing trip I experienced, but I’m reminded of God’s love and faithfulness.
