ready + set + solo | explore yourself

be accountable:

According to Dalai Lama, we are encouraged to “go someplace you’ve never been before” at least once a year \\ because it’s possible to notice an opportunity when needed. Now that 2018 is nearly behind us, I remember adding Aruba | the happy island | to my ‘must do’ list.. It was one of the fifteen different islands I read about in flight to Trinidad \ or Tobago \\ During my stay in the District + frequent nights in DuPont Circle, I discovered another shoutout to Aruba | the happy island | at Surfside DC. The decor + menu crafted offers caribbean history and food infused with island flavor. Third of all ||| Aruba | the happy island | made its way to my hands very recently, during chores + it still has my name written all over it.

be intentional:

Take only what you need to survive because everything else will fall into place. My intentions are set on Aruba, and there’s still time. One of Daddy’s most used phrases \ plan your work + work your plans \\ often comes to mind when planning + preparing for any adventure. The way my accountability is set \\

  • ItsBelle - to travel light

be mindful:

Stay alert + enjoy the presence - that is your greatest gift to self. Through many discoveries, experiments, and a little socializing - its seems that the sweetest parts of the journey aren’t always in plain sight. Auntie Oprah reminds us “you get in life what you have the courage to ask for” \ yet she never says who to seek or exactly what we should ask for \\ things I do wonder.

  • ItsBelle - to capture the journey

  • ItsBelle - to realize fresh perspectives

  • ItsBelle - to vacate \ a beautiful vacation is my jam \\\
