After almost ✌🏻decades as a permanent resident in the U.S., I’m finally applying for my citizenship! .
One of the application action items is to “List all trips of 24 hours or longer that you have taken outside of the United States during the last 5 years” 😳 Thank god for time stamp on pictures which has absolutely saved me! 😅 It’s also taken me down memory lane (I’ve included a few of my favourite spots here. Swipe right ➡️) and made me stop to realize just how bloody lucky and grateful I am for the amount of traveling I’ve been able to do over the years. Nothing brings me more joy (besides olives... 🙃) than exploring our planet. 🌍 .
Feeling very fortunate indeed and not taking any of it for granted. It’s fantastic to get into a practice of appreciating what we already have (instead of what we don’t) - it really makes even the smallest things so precious. Here’s to more gratitude in 2019 (& me becoming a U.S. citizen?!?!🤞🏻)! 🙏🏻 •
