Arrived to New Delhi safe and sound. The delay has completely changed the course of my trip, because the Taj Mahal is closed on Fridays and I had planned around that being my first full day in India.
But to be honest, on Wednesday I was not ready. I had woken up tired, hungover, attached to my friends and boyfriend that I had spent the past 21 days with, nervous and a bit scared, with a stomach that was in extreme pain for the 5th day in a row.
I was hardly even excited for a trip that I've been looking forward to my entire adulthood (to put this in perspective, I have been lovingly referred to as an "excitement terrorist" due to my frequent giddiness).
I was not open to the experience at my door. So it closed.
That morning, and for the few days prior, I knew something was going to go wrong.
What I didn't fully realize was those thoughts were creating an experience rather than sensing one.
Yesterday I woke up feeling capable, strong, healthy, allowing, accepting and EXCITED.
I woke up like, "I GOT THIS."
This is the woman I am. And it resulted in the steps to get me here.
How fun that I am here to seek growth in a holy place and grabbed some reminders before I even arrived.
There is a lot of responsibility that comes with the realization that you have created every step of your path, but it awakens you to great power, freedom, and fun.
Right now I'm over here high-fiving the universe like, "Good game, buddy."
