So I’ve been in Thailand for a couple days and it’s taken some time to get use to being on my own. I travelled alone many times before I met my husband but it’s been a long time since I’ve done something like this alone – over 16 years! The silence and space has been freeing but honestly, it has taken some time to get use to it. I mean, I only had to pack one bag to come here and I literally did it in 10 minutes when a normal family trip can take me a couple days to get everything sorted and organized. Even standing in line at the airport, I found myself looking to see what my youngest daughter was doing or what I had to do next until I realized I just needed to be…..be present and breath. It’s been wonderful.
And while I look forward to our next family trip and just regular life together, this trip I am grateful for the space, the ocean, the stars, the sunrise and only one set of footprints in the sand.
Until next time!
Only joy, only love,
