Bravery is not the absence of fear. Bravery is feeling the fear, the doubt, the insecurity, and deciding that something else is more important. - Mark Manson
3 years ago, I was afraid of what society would think of a 29 year old giving up a steady job to travel. I was afraid of completely changing careers at a time when my friends were settling down. I was afraid of running out of money. I was afraid my family would be disappointed in me. I was afraid my friends wouldn't get it. I was afraid I'd get mugged or completely lost in some foreign country a million miles away from any safety net I had. I was afraid I didn't have what it takes to make it as an entrepreneur. But most of all, I was afraid of living a life that didn't feel in alignment with my greatest purpose...and that trumped everything.
3 years ago this month I put in my notice at my 9-to-5 in LA and embarked on a totally unknown path. It hasn't been the easiest journey but it's 100% the best decision I've ever made. I hope you know that if you have a goal or a twinkle in your eye about some "far out" dream, you can make it a reality. Make the decision now that your dream is more important than all the things you're afraid of. It's ok if that's a long list, mine was too 💛
Todo mundo que me pede dicas sobre o Algarve eu insisto muuuuito para alugar um carro!!! 🚗
É impossível conhecer a região sem carro??? Não é mas você não conheceria lugares como esse da foto! 😉
O Algarve é repleto de praias paradisíacas e várias delas são pouco turísticas ou secretas e carro e gps serão seus melhores amigos para explorar o litoral. ⠀
Em alguma pesquisa no Google Maps eu me deparei com a Praia da Ponta Grande, achei linda nas fotos e quis conhecer... o acesso é por trilha ( fácil, com obstáculos 😏) mas não tem sinalização. Como meu senso de direção é ótimo 😬🤦🏻♀️ acabamos indo para o lado errado e assim conheci a Praia da Ponta Pequena ( da foto) e logo adiante mais dois paraísos... Praia do Ninho de Andorinha e Praia do Pirata. ⠀
⠀ ⠀ ⠀
Elas se tornaram minhas praias preferidas em Albufeira, vazias, sem nenhuma estrutura e com visual incrível!! E só foi possível conhecê-las porque eu estava de carro!!! ⠀
Agora eu preciso voltar para conhecer a Praia da Ponta Grande, que acabou ficando perdida pelo caminho mesmo hahahaha.
💖 I have this attraction to humans that are unapologetically themselves. I dont care if you're rough around the edges, crass, or even a saint. There is something so endearing about someone who is raw and confident.To know who you are and own it is one of life's toughest feats.
