Right now I am sitting at my computer. I am anxious, stressed and just all out frustrated at work. My heart rate is escalated, my eye is twitching…
Yes I know I sound like a lunatic, it doesn’t make it any less true.
So it should not come as a surprise that once I finished all my work, I started going through the 300+ photos I took while I was in Guatemala. I needed to decompress. I needed to find a happy place, because I was happy in Guatemala. Very happy. It is all I have been thinking about lately. Guatemala made me happy.
I have spent the past few nights trying to figure out why that one week in Guatemala made me that happy.
My time in Guatemala was busy it was hard work, but no matter how trying times may have been, I was never stressed. I never worried about deadlines, raises or what time I was going to get to leave the office today. In fact I didn’t think about my cubicle and case load ONCE.
So after many hours determining why. I think I have figured out one of the reasons, happiness is a way of life in Guatemala.
I am serious. I just went through my photos, and the pictures brought a smile to my face, because the view is spectacular. It is awe inspiring. It makes me want to go back.
Don’t believe me? See for yourself.
I am someone who believes that travel is way to grow, it is a way discover who you are. I am also someone that realizes that this is not a realistic outcome for most. I plan on explaining this more in the future, because I have not been the same since I returned from Guatemala. I haven’t. That one week in Antigua changed me. It has changed me for the better.
I have pretty much determined why I was happy in Guatemala, and while it wasn’t just the view. The view did help.
I know, I am sounding slightly looney right now, but I plan on sharing a lot of thoughts about Guatemala in the near future. This was by far one of the most life changing experiences I have ever had.
