I've just returned from the most incredible trip to Ibiza, and let me tell you, it was anything but your typical high-heels-and-bikini club scene. Ibiza surprised me with its hidden gems and enchanting vibes that are perfect for a chilled-out and friendly getaway.
Initially, I had planned to embark on this journey solo, but at the last minute, a friend decided to join me for a couple of days. And you know what? It turned out to be a blast! We laughed, we explored, and we created memories that will last a lifetime. Plus, I still managed to squeeze in a few extra days to reflect not just on my time in Ibiza, but also on life in general. Deep stuff, right?
Every morning, armed with my trusty Tibetan singing bowls, we ventured into the hills. Surrounded by breathtaking scenery and serenaded by the soothing sounds of the sea, we found our Zen. As a recent graduate of Reiki 1, I was on a mission to practice my 21-day self-healing journey. We journaled, meditated, and immersed ourselves in the symphony of nature and the enchanting tunes of those singing bowls. It was the perfect start to our day, infused with gratitude and an open heart. But let me assure you, we didn't spend the entire day sitting cross-legged and chanting! We had plenty of hilarious moments and giggles along the way.
I can't express enough how grateful we were that the stars aligned to bring us to this magical place. It made me realize that life is all about choices. Even choosing not to do something is a choice in itself, you know? When I hit the big 5-0, I had an epiphany. I realized I was probably more than halfway through my life (yikes!), and I had some serious choices to make. Did I want to settle down and get comfy in my cozy life, complete with a lovely home and a kind partner? Or did I want to embrace life, seek out adventures, conquer my fears, and discover who I truly am? Guess which path I chose? Option 2, of course!
Let me tell you, making that decision wasn't a walk in the park. There were casualties along the way, and my future is still uncertain. But you know what? It's also incredibly exciting! My plan is to travel, heal, and learn as I go. Although I'm not entirely sure how I'll manage with three dogs in a van. Can you picture it? Haha! I anticipate moments of pure joy, wonder, and probably a fair share of sadness and loss. But hey, it's all part of the journey. Life is all about choices, even the tough ones.
Now, going to Ibiza was a no-brainer. Even if I had to survive on rice and beans for a month, it would've been worth it! I got to hang out with an amazing friend, delve into some soul-searching, take a breather from the chaos, listen to hippies playing music at sunset, and, oh yes, swim naked in the sea! That was a day to remember, let me tell you.
What did I learn from this incredible experience? Well, I learned that I made the right decision, despite the challenges that lie ahead. Each day feels like peeling off layers, revealing the real me bit by bit. It's a gradual process, but I'm determined to enjoy every step along the way.
Part of this journey involves expanding my venture, justB, and organizing more retreats both in the UK and abroad. Exciting, right? Our first trip abroad will be in Mallorca this March, and it sold out in less than 48 hours! Can you believe it? So now I'm looking at organizing another one in April or May, and guess what? I want you to be a part of it!
I'm considering both Mallorca and Ibiza for the next adventure, and I'd love to hear your thoughts. Which one tickles your fancy? Also, how many nights would you prefer? Three, four, five, six? The choice is yours!
Life is all about the choices we make, my friend. So, what choices will you make? Are you ready to join me on this wild and wonderful journey? Let's make some unforgettable memories together!
