This is My Mental Clarity Trip to Europe 3 of 3 story. Read part 1 and part 2 before proceeding to this final part of my trip. I have gratitude for having the opportunity to go clear my head in another continent. For that, I’m forever grateful.
My cousin and I flew from Nice, France back to Switzerland. We used the car sharing service, Mobility. What I loved about Mobility is that all the cars are red.
When I was younger, my favorite color was always red. When I begun suffering from mental illness, my favorite color changed every 3 to 4 years. Right now, it’s pink, it was blue 4 years ago.
My very last night in Swiss, my cousin made us dinner reservations at a Swiss restaurant. We ended up going to a different restaurant and upon entering, the whole decor was red. I knew I was exactly where I ought to be in my life. Anyway, just being around the color red so much lit a fire within me- I said to myself: I’m not a victim, I’m a thriver.
I truly lived in the moment, while I was in Europe. This is why I don’t have many photos. I kept putting my phone away so I could focus on indulging myself in what the moment has to offer. I’ve realized I could have taken quality photos while also savoring the moment. So I’ll definitely take better photos on my next trip.
After two weeks in Europe, I returned home to Boston with a new sense of purpose. I went for mental clarity and found myself all over again. No more urgency, just take things as they come, one day at a time. Time away from my comfort zone made me realize I had outgrown my comfort zone. Now, I just needed to be patient, mindful and manifest positivity in all area of my life.
