I think I have found the time in my madness to finally stop and make a formal "hello" post that has been long overdue. Time is lost if it is not used correctly; here is my opportunity to make more use of my time and make it meaningful. I am overwhelmed with thoughts and words that I would like to say and share with others about my time here in Spain. My time in Madrid has been a beautiful nightmare full of every emotion possible and filled with unique moments and people that I will never forget. My goal of this post is for it to become my gateway to share additional thoughts and feelings further down the line.
There were nights I stayed up; unsure where life would take me. I made the choice to move to a place where nobody knew my name. I arrived to a world where I was lost in the streets; but I wasn't lonely. I found people around me and we lost sense of time. We told each other secrets. Became friends even though the time we spent together was just a brief moment in time.
I walked around the halls of my school where I found smiles and laughter. Students sitting with their hands in the air; shouting words that were secondary to each of them. I was learning more about myself and where I wanted to go. Where my feet would take me and the places I could go.
Today I continue to see where life will take me. Surrounded with friends and students and supported family.
This is my "hello" from me to you. A hello that will hopefully spark a conversation between you and I. A hello to myself that will remind me to stay true and to reflect on the life I live and not to take it for granted.
Dreamer. Lost in the moment.
