You know that feeling when you never seem to start your dreams?
The point is that for some reason or another, or even for your own excuses nicely set that up yourself das for valid. And this makes pass one day and another and another and your life begins to never be what you want it to be.
Yes? Do you recognize these words? That’s been my day for years.
But I’ll tell you a little adventure I’ve lived and made me change my vision of what you’ve read so far. Let’s begin.
My father suggested to me one day a few weeks ago if I wanted to accompany him on a journey along the Camino de Santiago. He already has come, but for me it was the first time.
I had never asked me “Make Way” because I had said to myself a thousand times I could not walk many kilometers, that can not stand the pace, would suffer, the list of excuses not to leave my comfort zone was very extensive and most credible. But I agreed almost without thinking or physically ready.
I took too much and no expectations. And it was wonderful.
I could walk all day, I laughed with my father almost continuously, I met people I could only communicate with smiles and signs and know that I can take myself to discover wonderful places.
And although there were hard times like blisters on my feet that came to deform my my fingers and a second-degree burns on the inside of the thighs for not wearing appropriate clothing. So all those painful experiences got great teachings.
I learned that no need to charge with expectations, I learned that I should not think too much about things, I learned that the language of the smile is universal, I learned that when I do things to please others, ended up being the one to go wrong stop and think first I love myself and to please myself.
I have learned to be in touch with my emotions and move for the simple fact I please move without a goal, I released daily and social pressure, but mostly I freed myself to … really live.
And I remembered that the most rewarding things in life, at least mine are free and so many things are not needed to be happy.
Needless to say I will return to the Way of Santiago, I hope it’s soon.
No end to tell you all the teachings of this trip because every time I see a new one.
But if I want to share with you the most important thing I have learned.
“The most important thing is to take the first step.”
You’ll never be ready for anything, but you fores or try to have everything perfect to start your life or try to prepare for that big change in you and in your life.
But it is never too late to … take the first step.
You must not think about the future or how you will, you just need to take the first step.
What are you going to do?
Wait for that great day when suddenly your life becomes something beautiful out of nothing? Or do you do that great day start now? Tell me about it.
It’s up to you.
Ps: Thanks Dad for always teaching me new aims and adventures.
And you my VintLover, thanks for being one more day with you.
I love you
