my cup of tea

My final night in the states, my cup of tea gave me the sweetest bit of travelers wisdom…

Live light. Appreciate the moments, both small and large. Every little bit of experience is something to remember. Just go with it. Adapt. Accept the changing courses of the wind, fly with it; the universe has something planned for you. Always keep moving forward with a smile on your face, love in your heart and a skip in your step. Live light.

Travel light. It’s incredible how capable we are of achieving exceptional things with our strong minds, open heart, and radiating spirit. Carry these essentials, the necessities (a toothbrush and some deodorant could come in hand if you want to make some friends), and let your senses take over storing every scent, sight, feeling, taste and sounds. Memories don’t need to be packed. Travel light.

Spread the light. We are all connected. We have been for centuries and will be for centuries to come. The people you meet today will soon meet the people you met ten years ago. Inspire each other so that inspiration can bounce back and forth and shine from one continent to the next. Spread the light.

Be the light. We come from different homes, backgrounds and experiences. We each have something wonderful to offer to the world. Be true to yourself, be fair to others, be the beautiful change. Be the light.

Studying abroad is a choice I’ve stuck to for 8 months. Today, July 8th, 2014, is surreal. I’m Fiji bound. I found my cup of tea. Cheers to my first sip.
