ONE MORE SLEEP…

One more sleep and I will face one of my biggest fears! Flying internationally… ALONE!

An 11-hour flight with no one to tell me “it’s going to be okay,” except maybe a stranger whose hand I may grab (I’ve done that once before). Was the excitement of seeing so many beautiful things (including Megan Markle’s wedding dress, those who know…know) and experiencing life in another country enough to consider it?

So I decided…I am ready to take the first step towards releasing myself of what ties me down!

This little girl from 639 Rosedale Avene, Bronx, NY, didn’t have many role models, but she dreamed of a better and more beautiful life, and I’m living it.

 But to live it to its fullest, I must face my apprehensions.

For the past 25 years, in my yearly and life goals, I’ve written down my dream and desire to visit London and Paris. Yet my own fear of flying internationally held me back from realizing those dreams.

This year I wrote it again, and when the opportunity presented itself I said NO!

Can you believe it!!!

I recited a million reasons until I caught myself and realized I was a fraud.  How could I tell someone else to face their fears and reach for the stars while I was just looking up at them!

So, I said yes. Yes to the new adventure! Yes to getting on an international flight by myself! Yes to reaching for the stars. Yes to slaying a giant in my life!

As this year comes to a close, I am embracing all that “the year of new” has challenged me with! More on that in another blog.

Is there something that is holding you back?  Are you facing a giant?

  Stop living a life of excuses and start living a life of YES!

So here I go…

Lesson:

Don’t be a spectator in other people’s lives and start living yours to its fullest.

Start from a place of yes!

BTW, I will be documenting my experience via my Insta Story!  Should be quite the adventure!

“Til Tuesday!
