LONG (but worth the read): there’s nothing I love more than travel. It’s my passion to write about travel, to explore the unknown and to experience everything the world has to give. ✨ I think it’s so easy to get caught up in the mundanities of our lives, that we forget to look up. See the world around you. Realise how lucky you are to be able to walk, talk, see. You never know when your day will be your last, so make the most of every second. Hug your friends, love your family and spread kindness & happiness wherever you may go. ✈️ You’ll only ever regret the things you didn’t do, and if you’re looking for a sign, this is it. Stop stressing about your job, your relationship, your commute, and start doing. Do what you’ve always talked about doing, and just do it. Book the plane ticket, start the blog, buy the business. Whatever it is, just do it. 🌼 Have a beautiful Wednesday friends, and remember that you’re so damn capable... you have no idea x

This entire trip came together in the span of 5 days and might be one of the most spontaneous things I've ever done. I don't know anyone personally in Paris - all of the people you've seen in my stories over the past few days are new friends. I found myself a $385 RT ticket that worked with my dates and an Airbnb. I reached out to anyone I knew for recommendations, scoured the Instagrams of my favorite French artists, booked tickets and off I went. I kept being asked why. Why Paris? Why now? Honestly, I don't know. Perhaps I'm rewriting memories, perhaps I wanted to throw myself into a place where I didn't understand everything around me, where life was simultaneously comfortable and still foreign.
I questioned why I do this to myself, wondering if I was chasing something unrequited or perhaps running away from my reality. My first night, I walked around the city to fight off jetlag, listening to the same song on repeat, reflecting on the dual nature of being isolated. You can look at being by yourself as an opportunity to stretch outside of who you are, reinventing yourself to satisfy your objectives. Or you can turn to self-pity and feel terrified for yourself and regretful of your decisions. In those few hours, I decided I would trust my intuition and embrace my impulsive streak; I would operate on the premise that fear was a social construct. I would say yes to anything that was within my budget and moderately safe and just run with it. From a bar crawl to a hip-hop club to finding a soul sister in an Instagram friend and another through an African Textiles tour to finding amazing vegan spots, to attending a concert without tickets to learning to trust and depend on the goodness of other people.
It is a blessing to be able to have the resources to do this but not everyone in my position would choose to stray so far from their comfort zone. But as I live my best life and reflect on what I have gained in a few days here - perspective, courage, a reintroduction to my extroverted side, confidence, acknowledgements of my intelligence in between doses of luck, pushing past preconceptions to discover my truth - I would not trade this experience for the world.
DAY 2 of GRATITUDE: Friends!
As non dramatic as this quote is... it’s so true! This past weekend I had a date, two friendsgivings and a friends engagement brunch and it made me realize how VERY important friends are and how much I LOVE the people in my life. It was also two of my friends birthdays this weekend and if there is anything I’m grateful for, it’s that they were born! I cannot imagine life without my friends! They truly give me life. When all hope is lost. When life pulls me down a dark hole, whether it’s health related, work related, family related, my friends save me! I’m so so grateful for all of you beautiful human beings! Thank you for existing! And for being a part of my life! I LOVE YOU ❤️
“the runs that break you are the runs that make you” 🏃♀️ reunited 💞 back to the place where i discovered the love of running. today’s miles felt REALLY odd?? only 4 mi bc taper
anxiety has been all over today starting w an airport anxiety attack BUT i was so excited to finally run on the beach again that i came home and legit started crying happy tears and changed and went out the door!! but it didn’t feel the way it normally does? these 4 mi were done slower than the treadmill 13 on sunday & at almost the same pace as the 20 miler 2 weeks ago yet this felt more draining?? 😞 & this was kinda painful. hips felt tight. and saw on my watch that vo2 max dropped from 53 to 52 ☹️ maybe this pavement pounding felt off bc i didn’t get very much sleep and i didn’t really have the 2 meals before this run and i was dehydrated?? and bc today was my first run in these new shoes?? IDK here’s to improvement. trying not to let it get to me. grateful for sandy toes and the ocean breeze. 12 days @runsra_cim
