{classic side of the road shot}

It’s been about a month since I left for my trip to Poland with Agnes and Sean and I can’t help but think a lot about that trip since I’ve been back. There is no doubt in my mind that we as adults appreciate opportunities and things we can do in our life much more as we get older.

Being in Poland has not only taught me a lot more about part of my Polish culture that I wasn’t familiar with before, but it has also showed me how much I take for granted. I don’t think I am a snob and I am not one to not be appreciative of the blessings I have in my life, but after reflecting from time to time over the last 2 weeks, I’ve begun to think of the opportunities I’ve had, that I’ve taken for granted, simple things such as my job, my education, my family and friends. I stress so much {especially lately} because I just want to do a good job and make everyone happy, but what I’ve  learned is you just have to leave some things alone sometimes.

Stressing over stuff that is out of your control is pointless {I know that, but its easier said than done for some people} and if there is one “life lesson” I’m trying to take away from my trip, it is that. While I wish I could travel every single month, I know that’s not realistic, so when I can’t wander the world or even my hometown, I have pictures and memories that I can go back to, especially to help me during times like these when I ask myself if I’m doing the best I can. As I approach this “new” work week and our first big event at the Outer Harbor for the 2017 season, I’m hoping to keep this lesson in the back of my head so I can enjoy more and stress less.
