А вот и я💃
Закончилась наша поездка в любимый город Барселону. В этот город невозможно не влюбиться❤ А это значит, что теперь будет много фотографий и постов😎
P.S. Кстати за полчаса до съемок этой фотографии мой новый телефон погрузился на дно совсем как Титаник😅
Tuesday is farmers market day here in Altea, Spain and I don’t like to miss out on it. But today I braved the stalls alone, no companion to tag in with the Spanish words I can’t remember or at least someone to stumble along and laugh with me. It all felt a little more vulnerable today.
I found my veggie guys and nudged my way towards an open space. It’s a balancing act between being polite and waiting your turn but also realizing others are going to get right in front of you if you don’t get a little aggressive! I catch the attention of one and start working my way down the list - the easy words first. I notice sweat start to form on my forehead and upper lip because I’m getting a little insecure with all the people listening and I wonder if I’m saying things right. .
And then I get to the word cucumber. I can’t for the life of me think what that is. So I try gesturing and pointing to the zucchini and saying “Es muy similar”. Others start turning their attention towards the lone American trying her best to fit in so they can help and now the sweat is increasing and becoming visible through my clothes 🤦🏼♀️😫I’m literally a hot mess of insecurity at this point. In the end, they had no cucumber, I paid my money and sought the refuge of shade and solitude to recover! .
I just wrote on @awakenandfree the mantra for the week “be not afraid”. Honestly trying to communicate in another language is so nerve wracking at times and I so want to run away from it. Instead, I decided to dedicate my studies this week to practicing market terminology so next week I can bring the whoa factor. .
So with all that, do it afraid my friends. Whatever it is. However small it seems. ✌🏼
💪🏻My story is the ultimate chain of decisions that a person can make.I appreciate everything that surrounds me and that I am achieving because nothing is impossible and I am assuring that to everyone that feels insecure in their actions!
