Tomorrow will mark 2 months since the breakup, but I thought it was THREE MONTHS. LOL. Man, time is flying......... just like I've been in the last month or so. Maybe more than a month. I don't even know. I've been gifted with so much travel this year. Let's see if I can do a recount of this year in travel:
February 22: Tulsa for Imagine Dragons w/Naked and Famous show. April 25 - May 4: Portland, OR / Seattle, WA. June 5-8: Wakarusa. June 21: Tulsa Aquarium and Zoo July 3-7: Indianapolis, IN / Chicago IL August 11-18: Las Vegas, NV / Denver, CO August 22-26: Washington, D.C.
And here's the upcoming that I know of: September 5-8: St. Louis, MO for Loufest Mid-September: Washington, D.C. November 16th: Houston, TX
I have been so happy. I've been to so many airport. Detroit, Chicago, Atlanta, Denver, Las Vegas, Indianapolis, DCA... I love it.
And time is going by so fast. But adventures slow it down. I like slow time.
I'm going through my first official break-up. Although, it's not my first heartbreak. It's interesting how that works.
And what I am realizing is that life doesn't get easier as one gets older, but the awareness that there is no use to feel sad or cry more than needed, that awareness... that awareness is powerful. Knowing that life is going to get better and this is just temporary and that life doesn't give us much time so we better not waste it.
I joked with a friend, that I'm moving through the grief stages really fast (it's only been three days or so, we broke up on June 29th, although it was coming all along). Sadness, madness, shopping (that's a stage, that's totally a stage). But mostly I'm focused on being awesome. Like Barney Stinson, but not like Barney, of course.
It's been three nights that I've been living crazy dreams. The first night I went to la escuela España and saw a lot of people I knew. And I took a photo with my two classmates from el colegio... the only two that have passed away. I hope it's not a sign.
Then yesterday I couldn't wake up, because I was busy on some kind of adventure. I've forgotten it by now.
But this morning... oh man, this morning I woke up having a Walter Mitty kind of adventure. I was sent off from a car going by really fast and I was on a smaller car inside it and went on to some mountain. But I was thrown off the smaller car and ended up in some kind of cave-like place, and started finding bags and a towel, and recognized it from before. I had been there before. But I was some kind of fugitive, because the police came and I was able to escape, but then everyone was looking for me. I made it to La Colonia Libertad, and I went around the park a few times.
I have been able to keep my travel goals so far this year. Of course, those are the easiest for me, because of my love of traveling. I've already booked flights for me to go to Seattle and Indiana, and I've booked a flight for tia Cande to come visit from El Salvador.
I've been doing a great job keeping up with my budget.
I didn't lose 29lbs by my 29th bday. But I am on my way to still lose them, even though my birthday has passed.
I have been eating a lot healthier and have managed to cut down in eating out a lot.
I have not returned to my mat. My yoga practice has been on hold. First, because I injured my right shoulder (prob with a bad plank) and second, well, because I just haven't made the effort.
