Vivir Mi Vida (Live My Life)

Hello Lovely Creatures!

I am going on a month long solo adventure in two weeks to Santa Clara, Cuba. The purpose of my trip is to learn Spanish. I will be taking daily lessons while being immersed in the Cuban culture that I love so much. This has been a dream of mine for many years. DREAMS DO COME TRUE!

Although I am so very excited about this next big step in my life and I am also quite nervous. I have been having a lot of anxious thoughts such as: What if I have an episode? What if I lose my meds? What happens if I don’t learn enough Spanish? What if I forget to pack something important?    Right now I am working through this anxious energy and focusing on the excitement.

So today I started packing , yes already. This has helped me to gain excited about the trip and let go of some anxiety. I have packed all the summer clothes that I have and any clothes I need for the trip that I won’t wear before hand. I compiled a list of all the things I still need to purchase. Now it is time for a shopping trip, beachwear here I come.

Honestly, I think I am nervous because I don’t want to fail. I feel like I have failed a lot of things in my life due to my illness. It feels like everything always starts of strong and then just goes downhill.  Those failures have made me stronger and I have learned how to cope much better. It is time to change my frequency and fuel my life with positivity.

Thank you for reading the rants of this nervous polar bear. I will be creating a travel blog about my stay in Cuba. Stay tuned for entertaining stories about my Cuban adventure!
