”Creativity connects me to my truest self and vulnerability. There is nothing more personally liberating, than reaching for my face and peeling off the social mask that hides my; shadow self, pain and weakness. When i produce from this place of truth, the results transform both creator and beholder.” ✨
Today I realized I’ve come a long way over the past many years. The struggles and the the thoughts of feeling lost are finally in place. Yes I will say I’m so proud of who I’m becoming and I’m going to be forever thankful for everything I’ve overcome. . stay strong and never give up ✨ to who ever out there I promise you that one day it will all make sense 💛
The following days consisted of us being ultimate tourists and visiting the Colosseum, the Forum, and Vatican City. These places were beautiful and I couldn’t believe I was seeing them with my own eyes! It still felt unreal that I was in a country I always dreamed about visiting as a little girl. (A photo gallery on my blog will be coming your way soon.)⠀ ⠀ However, one of my favorite moments was when we decided to roam outside Vatican City towards Trastevere. On the way, we goofed off and laughed ourselves silly in a park next to a castle we found called Castel Sant’Angelo.⠀ ⠀ We then walked across the the river where locks hugged the bridge. We roamed passed terra cotta facades, through winding alleyways, and amidst buzzing mopeds with no destination in mind. The smell of beer and late lunch filled our noses. ⠀ ⠀ We stumbled upon the cutest little bar with climbing ivy in a hidden, intimate location.⠀ ⠀ At this point of the trip, though my anxiety still lingered, it was dissipating and my headspace allowed more joy and peace to seep in. ⠀ ⠀ The air was warm, the sun was slipping through our fingers, and I was so happy to be with my two favorite people in this charming, secluded neighborhood.
