It’s not even the middle of the year, and it’s already been one hell of a ride for me. I can’t remember the last time I’ve been this productive and busy working. As daily struggles and stress still show up here and there, I look back at times I’ve had to myself to just enjoy the view and remind myself that it’s totally worth it.
Being in Mexico meant being in the land of no phone service which meant no work, no deadlines to meet, and only face to face interaction with others and nature. A lot of strolls were taken and it was overwhelming to see all the small little details I missed when I was younger. I had been here to visit my grandparents at least 20 times and I never noticed all the colors and the people as much as I did this last time. I think part of that has to do with growing up and having different priorities now.
I know that not all of us can just drop everything and go to a whole other country any time we want to, to achieve complete electronic solitude, but maybe it’s something we can duplicate into our own lifestyles.
Maybe we can find little details around us that we’ve overlooked or make some “ME” time where we’re not constantly checking in on something else.
