Oh hi, remember me? I used to post on here all the time. Don't worry though---I haven't forgotten about you, my life has just been moving at the speed of light.
If you follow me on social, then you already know I'm currently in Turks & Caicos with Men's Fashion Post. Labeling the island as beautiful would be a disservice. This is hands down, one of the most stunning destinations that I've ever been to. The salt from the ocean compliments the sweet rum punch and the island vibe is strong. Something about this little slice of heaven has put me in a very introspective place and brought on a lot of self reflection.
I spent the entire afternoon today on a very remote beach in middle Caicos with nothing but my friends and my feelings. It never ceases to amaze me how much the internet has done for me and I will never stop feeling gratitude for all the experiences i've gotten to be a part of. Cultivating an attitude of acceptance enables you to feel grateful even when you’re in pain.
I think it's both a blessing and a curse to live in this hyper-connected age. It's provided me with a livelihood I never thought possible but has also left me feeling alone. We're all so distracted by the finer details of life on the internet that we don't even realize what we're missing out on. Human connection, depth of feeling and emotional intelligence.
I struggle with alone time and seek safety in other people, especially when traveling. After being on that remote beach today, the lightbulb went off for me. No single person should ever make you feel whole, because you need to be whole on your own. Once you find out how to do that--human connection, depth of feeling and emotional intelligence is possible. These three things will foster relationships rooted in positivity trust and respect.
I think we could all use more positivity, trust & respect in our lives--don't you think?
Until next time x
