Journal of a Journey: Day 3

In real time, I have been in Morocco for almost a week. But since time stops here it feels like much less. Although I am afraid time is passing by and I will have to leave eventually. I wish this time will never end, that I can wake up every day of my life in Marrakech and go buy freshly made warm msemen. Have a mint tea every evening while I watch the sun setting over Jemaa-El-Fna.

Today is Christmas Eve. And yes, I feel sad for not being at home with my family. But there is nowhere else in the world I could be but here.

This year has been particularly hard for me. At the same time, it has taught me so much about how strong and capable I am. It has also taught me that I have to let go of material stuff, because I have nothing at the moment and I feel so free. I also learned that my home is within me. That I feel stable and confident if I constantly move. I also remembered that love can change it all. I met so many people. Some of them I don’t ever want to cross path, others, I wish we can share the same path for the rest of this journey.

This year I have conquered the impossible. Worked full time and obtained two master’s degrees. All made possible because of the desire that drives me: to dedicate my life to those in need. To those children out there and, whom I believe, deserve the same opportunities I had, or better ones.

2019 is coming. With many new objectives, challenges, places to see and smiles to share. I can’t wait.

19 is my favorite number. 19 is Ka. Ka like the wind.

There will be water if God wills it (Stephen King).

Merry Christmas! 

With Love from Morocco ❤


Time to let go

Time to let go. Take the step. Affront the risk. Listen to the call. You must take the step. Go forward. Fear not.

Accept your mistakes. Those are part of the learning process. Those where just rocks on the road, but they are not meant to be carry down the road with you. Let them be what they are, let them go.

See yourself as what you are, the center of the universe. Yes, you are the center of your universe. People come and go, situations arise and pass, nothing last forever. Not even the worst pain, nor the happiest moment.

Do not disconnect with your essence, that is where you will find yourself, and true happiness.

You can keep going, you can go through this. All that is part of your reality is there because is meant to. You are meant to go through all this, believe that there is a reason after every step you take in life. And at the same time you are choosing that path. Be your best friend, forgive yourself, accept yourself, your flaws and strengths. Love yourself more than anything. You, more than anybody else deserve all the love you freely give to others.

Merry Christmas!
