On the 19th of June just gone, Patrick and myself would have been jetting off on yet another adventure. Yes that's right, we love our adventures, However, this was no ordinary adventure, it was actually our honeymoon... well part of it.
I knew for so long that I wanted to go away in June around Patrick's birthday because he was 35, and in my eyes, it was a pretty big birthday to celebrate... especially in Patrick's case. Patrick has been told throughout his life that he will not live beyond certain ages. This is due to Patrick having an underlining heart condition since birth... but now he is at 35 and has achieved beyond everyone’s expectations.
So, back to our trip that never happened, which before it was booked I kept talking about and on our trip at Christmas even more so because that's what we do while on holiday...plan for our next one. We both love where we are in our lives right now, but whenever we sit down and try to chill out, we suddenly feel as though we have to plan where we would love to...and in most cases do...visit next.
One of my biggest dreams has always been to go to South America, how incredible would it be to say out loud that we where there? Pretty cool in my eyes.
I kept thinking about it, and wondered “can it happen?” As June was just six months away, this would take a lot of time and effort to organise...within a relatively short space of time. But still, I had high hopes that we could organise this, however, I had to be realistic too.
Eventually, it came to the stage where whenever I spoke about it Patrick kept shushing me and would say “it’s under control”.
On February 13th he surprised me with the booking confirmation for this trip. It was for two weeks in Ecuador and included a cruise to the Galapagos Islands.
This was such a buzz.
We were both very excited.
However, as March came it was looking more and more like that this was not going to happen, but we were still unsure... and then the Covid19 pandemic just exploded....and confirmed this for us.
Everybody’s plans suddenly had to be rescheduled, it was crazy, right?
I remember the moment that the decision was made by us, or rather for us, that our wedding plans had to be changed; and so too was our honeymoon.
We went to the beautiful St. Anne's Park in Dublin on a windy but warm day. I wore shorts, I love to wear shorts. As we were walking I asked Patrick “was today the day we were supposed to be going away?” “No” He replied “That was yesterday”. Oh, and there was me trying to think “what did I do on Friday” It seemed to be a pretty productive day as I recollected so I was happy.
So, what have I been doing since? Well, I have really gotten into fitness training in the local park, I purely love the experience. I have also been interviewing people for my YouTube and podcast channel, Empowering Abilities, and working closely with my mentor who is assisting me with the creation of an upcoming online course which I am due to host over the next few weeks/months.
In my honest opinion it is so wonderful to have a game plan, and to organise your life in a way that allows for the creation of new exciting projects. This way of life is what assists us all within our inner growth. When we continue to grow, we not only expand out this growth, but also we expand within our physical and mental capabilities. Remember, you have so much to offer the world.
One thing I learnt a number of years ago is this...our subconscious mind is the most dominant....but, the beauty regarding the subconscious mind is that it does not know the difference between reality and what is being imagined. We all have free will, to imagine, where we want to be in the world right now....for me...I am on the Galapagos Islands...free of worry....free of stress...and free of sadness. Also, the weather in Ireland has been reasonably good...so let us all just imagine...and escape... into any world...any reality... you want..
Let go, and just embrace the journey that is life.
