To cheer myself up..
One day later I had to move out from our awesome campsite by the majestic Cachuma Lake near Santa Barbara as my recovery from the cold required me to be indoors in warmth.
My only quick and cheap option at that time was a student hostel in Santa Barbara. Oh Gee! I thought at first. How am I going to survive this? But indeed, it turned out to be very refreshing to be surrounded by young people so carefree and open to life's adventures. I remembered how fearless and courageous I was in my teens too, when I enrolled into a British University and moved to UK with only £100 in my pocket. There were no limits back then!
And so there are no limits now either! This time I spent surrounded by 16-18 year olds has been a beautiful reminder about continuing to dream big, dare life and be fearless. We tend to get too careful about life as we grow wiser. Don't you think? Youngsters seem to be the masters of living in the moment and enjoying life till you drop ;)
Hmm I wondered to myself - what message am I about to hear now? It was a really cool upbeat tune with the lyrics I absolutely loved hearing! "Your Dream .... Is .... It Is Possible...." Ha! How amazing is that! You can imagine I had a big grin on my face throughout the song ;) Thank you Universe!
I enjoyed the time I was given with the youth - got some timely reminders about loving life to the full, especially valuable with me turning 30 (oh my!) in two weeks time. And also made me think again that I'd really like to work with teenagers in near future. They are so open, so creative and they are indeed the future of our planet! We better teach them well and learn from them big time too.
Big Love to You All!! Xxx
