I would like to think that I'm no stranger to adventure. Since I was a little girl, I've always longed to explore and to be part of an amazing story and incredible adventure. I think adventure is instilled in each of us. That longing for the unknown, and excitement for something new that is completely out of our comfort zone. I've always wanted to see the world, and to be exposed to amazing cities and cultures. I've been traveling overseas for as long as I can remember. With my parents being from Guatemala in Central America, we would always go there to visit family and to spend time in the city where they grew up. I went to Italy my Junior year in High School, and visited France and England when I graduated. I took at trip to Poland with classmates in college during my Freshman year, and visited England again throughout college after meeting my British Half Ben. After college I explored Iceland while my love played professional soccer there. I've always had a passion for traveling and visiting new countries. I get such a thrill from being able to visit places that I've always dreamed of seeing, and getting to immerse myself into a new culture.
As I prepare for this move to New York City, I keep thinking about how adventure truly is worthwhile. I would by lying if I said I wasn't nervous. Part of me is jumping up and down with excitement, and the other part of me is slightly terrified. I've lived in Iceland for crying out loud! Why am I scared about my New York adventure? With every great adventure comes a little bit of hesitation beforehand. Will this work out? Will I be okay? What if I hate it? That's the beauty behind adventure. Going outside of our comfort zone, and learning a little more about ourselves in the process. Adventure helps us to grow, and helps us to truly expand our horizons. It exposes us to new things, and awakens something in us that no other experience can. I am beyond excited for this new chapter in my life, and can't wait to see how it all unfolds. Am I nervous? DEFINITELY. Am I excited? More than you can imagine! My last weekend in Texas will be bittersweet, but I'm more than ready to say hello again to New York. xo
