On a whim, I decided to join a group of classmates going to Puerto Rico on vacation. As I mentioned, this would be my first legit Spring Break vacation. This post will be a teaser of some of my photos from the trip. Between my friends and I, there should be over 1000 pictures! We were only there for 5 glorious days but we made some great memories. This was, hands down, my favorite Spring Break holiday.
As I’m reflecting from my trip, I thought I’d share some lessons I learned while I was away:
#1. Be open to new experiences.
#2. Be comfortable with silence.
#3. Face your fears.
#4. Live like you only have one shot at life.
#5. Make time for yourself.
#6. Strive to put your mark on the world.
#7. Surround yourself with good company.
#8. Don’t take yourself too seriously.
#9. Face your tomorrows with optimism and courage.
#10. Take one step at a time and don’t get ahead of yourself.
#11. “Be yourself. Everybody else is taken.” -Oscar Wilde
#12. If you want it, go after it.
#13. You may bend, but you won’t break.
#14. Don’t be afraid of where your ambition will take you.
#15. Find the things that bring you the greatest joy and pursue them.
This vacation showed me how much I’ve been missing out by not traveling. I shudder to think that I almost didn’t go on the trip, but decided to jump in last minute. It was worth every penny! I have been bitten by the proverbial travel bug and I can’t wait for my next trip (where/whenever it will be).
