And Then I Cried

Today is my last day in San Sebastian.

My last day in España.

Tomorrow I fly back to reality. And my heart is sad.

Last night, after too much sangria y pintxos, I walked along the beach. I listened to the surf crash into the sand with angry force. And I cried. I cried because this experience, this journey has been incredible. I cried over those people who have delivered me to this place in my life. I cried over the experiences that have made me into the girl who wanted to journey alone and experience life. There were a lot of tears...and snot. Granted, I have a pretty bad cold, but still...snot.

I stood there in front of the ocean, and I thanked each person that crossed my mind. And I accepted each experience, so that I never look down on them again.

This experience in Spain will end tomorrow. But the journey that I'm on, the path that I will continue to heart will take me, and I will accept with open arms and a huge smile on my face.

Have an awesome day!

Friend, I was thinking the other day that it feels like you've been in Spain for two months, not two weeks! I'm so glad you've had such a great time and learned so much. Truly a life changing event, I think :)

Ang your going to be so much stronger on the inside from this trip. But if you change your name to something in Spanish I may need a language lesson. Love you and glad you are back
