I’m Back State Side!!!
Let me tell you, IT IS NOT easy coming back to life as usual when you’ve been off in a new place for a week. My mind isn’t all the way back from travels yet, but even still everything seems to be flying at me and past me. It’s as if I’m just going through the motions but I really haven’t caught up yet. I guess eventually reality will catch up and everything will be back to normal. However, I have to question within myself if normal is really what I want.
Thinking and waiting for things to go back to normal is common, but there is a part of me that knows that it may never happen. New experiences, people and places all change you in some way. It changes the way you see things, your perspective…everything. There’s a quote by Oliver Wendell Holmes that says, “A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions”. I have a feeling that the more I try to embrace normalcy, the more I will forcibly alter what has already been set in motion. Change.
My Fathom Cruise Line Experience was something I never really want to forget. I loved it! The fun, the excitement, the people, the laughter, the service. I loved all of it and there is nothing about that experience that I want to change and I feel honored about the change it will create in me.
I took some time to put together a little video to capture the essence of my social impact trip with Fathom Cruise Lines. I hope you like it!
