May 15- June 12: Wherever You Go, There You Are
Or in other words, you can start with a whole new army of shampoos, body sprays, face washes, even clothes and accessories. You can start a new day, a new week, a new month. You can travel to the other side of the world, live in a place where no one knows you, and you are surrounded by new things. And yet, you are still You. Every time I embark on a new phase of life, I have so many hopes for making changes in my life, and this newest adventure was no different. However, I quickly discovered that I would have the same struggles here as at home, or anywhere. To make real and lasting changes, they must come from a place deep within. They must start as a spark within us and be fanned with enthusiasm and persistence.
And so, here I am, still me, liking to stay up late and sleep in, inconsistent and flighty, just in another country. I wanted to become another person while I was here, but what I should have focused on was being a better version of myself.
