Hello my beautiful people!
I have been wanting to write this post since the first week I started my journey in Europe this past June. This experience of hitchhiking was like a freedom bootcamp where I learned to be in the present moment every minute of the way while not having any expectations of the outcome.
This experience was transformative and empowering, I’ll tell you why.
Hitchhiking is not for the pessimists. That is the most dangerous kind of of people out there if you ask me. If you are following me, then you might know or be familiar of the concept of energies, and that everything is made out of energy.
Now imagine that energy is exactly like a mirror, whatever the energy you have within, the exterior will reflect exactly that. If you ever took physics in school, then you will remember the teaching of “everything is energy, always changing and moving because we are made out of atoms.”
If you never took physics, watch some quick youtube videos, because this is something everyone needs to know since all life consists of these simple laws. Newton’s 3rd law states “for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction”. This applies not just to an external force, but also the force within us.
Okay enough of physics, just wanted to establish some kind of base with you in regards to energy and how life works in simple scientific terms.
After quitting my job and only taking with me $1,500 for this 3 month trip, I took a huge leap of faith to trust my knowledge of life and energy to create the most magical life while being out of my comfort zone, language, country and rules.
I hitchhiked for 4 weeks in Norway and this was enough to humble me, ground me and teach me that the magic in life lies in having no expectations of what you want to happen or how it should happen. When you let go of the how, life flows through you in ways that you could not imagine and gives you more than what you asked for.
During this trip I learned to relax fast because I knew that was the key to feeling peace within and also letting my life unfold in ways I could not simply imagine.
Did I have bad days during this journey? of course I did, but once I applied these simple techniques of letting go of the expectations, the bad turns into good. The questions is how long it took me to accept the now, how the situation was in the moment, that was the challenge, but it got easier and easier and easier throughout my journey.
Now I live in a state of unknown, while appreciating everything that happens in my life, because of this, everything feels like a gift and surprise :)! I love being in this state because it makes life so much more colorful, exciting and fun :).
This trip was like a vision quest in a way, discovering my true self, true passions and going back to my inner child. I don’t have labels of myself and live in pure freedom within and out, this is what living is all about for me.
Not the 8-5 office job monday-friday that I had the last 2.5 years, where I felt like a walking zombie, so lifeless and gray.
I hope everyone gets to experience the unseen magic of life in their adulthood again, because it’s not supposed to end when you become an adult. Live the life of your most wildest dreams NOW, not when you retire in 30 years lol, but NOW because you don’t know if you will be here tomorrow.
Love & Happiness,
