Not for me. I feel like I am just beginning!
This year was just a taste of the life I want to live.
So what now?
There is no way I can capture in words what this year has meant to me. What I gained and accomplished this year is beyond anything I dreamt of.
I am truly not the person that left a year ago. I am stronger and beautiful and I love my life and myself for the first time ever.
One of the most remarkable developments from this journey is the beautiful friendships I have created. Each is different and unique; each nurtures me in my path of self-healing. I am grateful for all the souls I met, for their stories and love.
What started as a simple request from my friend to blog about my travel is now becoming a creation for a book.
This book belongs to me as much as it belongs to all of you who encouraged me to keep writing and planted the seed for making it into a book.
I admit I did not know what to do with all the compliments initially. It took me eight months to come to the notion of listening to the universe's messages. From my Facebook account and the four groups I posted to, the message was clear: You know who you are and I am grateful for the time you took to write your comments. Each encouraged me differently. It always felt like you were all with me on this journey.
I open the floor to you all to help me find a name for my book. I have a few ideas in mind, but sharing the search for the perfect title with you all will be fun.
In the next few weeks, I plan to find my Minivan and convert it into my tiny home. I plan to go through all my belongings and donate most of them. The minimalist lifestyle fits me better. I plan to concentrate and improve my newsletter on Substack, where you can follow the build-up of "my home" and my future travels. I plan to take "Gila the Nomadic Color Guru"(gilacolorguru.com) to the next level and take it on the road with me. And, of course, to work on my book.
I look forward to catching up with my dear friends and spending time with them before I get back on the road again.
Until next time!
