Had an enormous amount of fun at this amazing event!✨ Being able to release all my dreams into the universe was magical❣️🌟 thank you @ooooohkris for taking me!! #lanternfest#whatlightsyou ♥️🖤
This is me. ❤️
The first pic is after 31 days of adventuring and exploring the countries of Eastern Europe. .
The second is exactly 31 days prior- the day I left to go on my adventure. .
This year has not been an easy one for me. Huge life changes, a whole lot of stress, health concerns, financial worries, more work hours per week than I have done in 8 years... there’s been a lot to deal with. .
I can see in the second picture that my light is very dim. I’m about to head off on a fabulous holiday, and yet I’m looking drained and sad. .
Fast forward 31 days and my light is back. I haven’t slept a full night through the entire holiday (dorm rooms and being a light sleeper), my diet has been atrocious most of the time, and I’ve been constantly dehydrated, but in spite of all of these negative physical conditions, good things have happened. Healing. Growth. .
I have got my spark back. I have learnt a shitload about myself, seen reflections in many, made connections with some, and I have had my eyes, mind and heart opened by the places I’ve been. .
A massive thank you to my travel buddy @_wandering.wallflower_ who planned, organized, booked and researched so much. I am beyond grateful for all you have done to make this trip what it was. And for allowing me to come along for the ride.
Travel really is a panacea for me. I must remember that. And deciding to travel, even when it doesn’t look like the “smartest” option, can bring about priceless changes to my life. .
My final words would be the ones I wish I could have told myself 5 months ago when I was debating about going on this trip. “Just do it, just say yes, just go. It will all work itself out. And it will bring you more than you can ever imagine.” 🙌🏼❤️🛫
🌧When raindrops fell down from the sky🌧
The day you left me, an angel cried
Oh, she cried, an angel cried .
If you heard these lyrics being sung by Ariana Grande in your head, we are automatically friends. ♥️☁️👼🏽
♥️A prayer for♥️
A woman told me she liked my lantern message and took a picture of it. Warms my heart to know that others are also touched by my prayers lifted up. #whatlightsyou . 📸: @chellezs ❤️
Had so much fun yesterday at #TheLightsFest with my bb ❤️ it was pretty windy so some of the lanterns would nyoom away so fast 😂 and some of them would go straight to some people which made it a bit terrifying and a tiny bit hilarious. But we all came together to help each other out 😂❤️ I really want to go again next time ✨ #thelights#whatlightsyou
✨at last I see the light✨
Almost getting burned by malfunctioning lanterns was worth it to get these shots. 😅 Shoutout to my new friend that I met at The Lights Fest @picklefigphoto for being so kind by taking my photos on both of our cameras and making my Tangled dreams come true. He’s the bomb.com 💣🙌
