and then i just kept walking into the water till i reached the other side (that’s what always happens in these photos)
i say this about a lot of places, but cartagena is the jam. i’m talking caribbean vibes meet south american energy. colorful buildings, beachside helado for days, and enough street vendor ceviche to make me question my willpower.
today i went to a nearby island called tierra bomba. at first, i was like damn this was a mistake (it was crowded and kinda dirty where the boats dock) - but then decided to go on a long walk and stumbled upon some tranquil shorelines that were deserted and so much better. if you don’t like something, just walk for like an hour... usually works, arrright?

What makes you feel good?
This morning after I dropped my kids at school and I spent the morning with Ricky at the beach.
I saw nature in a different way today.
And appreciated the most smallest things like hanging off Ricky’s back as we went under the waves and being sprayed in the face with water bouncing off Ricky as he showered.
The small pleasures in life keep us going.
Today, may you be refreshed in God’s Goodness and inspired by His Love.
More than a year ago, I just got out of the hospital. I'm not well enough yet after almost a year undergoing a series of operations, and the pain in my heart increased in intensity. My sin must have been in imagining that I could get still more of truth from the outside. God shows them to us in order to induce us to reflect. All destinies, have been shaped by God. He argued me into giving up my previous plan. Then I turned in on myself, and began a long journey to heal my body and soul.
For a long time, painful memories were being raked over to me. To learn that it only takes a few seconds to open profound wounds, and that it takes so much time to heal them. A big challenge is to shift your perspective radically from judgment of other to a lifelong exploration of yourself. In truth, what are anger, sadness, pain but the soul's desire for love? While sadness, grief, and anger are normal reactions to discouraging events, they need to be followed by a plan for recovery. You know and feel the pain, but the desire to no longer continue the suffering is stronger, you started care about yourself to not want to carry the anger or sadness any longer. I moved, changed my lifestyle and exercise routine, and went back to work. The key is maintaining a healthy lifestyle that includes lots of physical activity and proper nutrition, wake up with a refreshed perspective and do something different. Find the confidence to reinvent yourself and take responsibility for your choices in life.
It was a long journey but now I no longer wake up every morning feeling angry and bitter. I let go and surrender to greater peace of mind. Nothing but God's own sovereign good pleasure compels Him to love sinners. I've never questioned why I survived, but I'm doing everything I can to repay the people who helped me in my recovery. My belief in God has made a big difference in my life. Yes, I haven't fully recovered yet, but I've been trying, and I have known and believed the love that God has for me.
