I have so much to be thankful and grateful for this year after spending the year in Asia, where I got closer to my roots in Taiwan, learning Mandarin, and then backpacked throughout SE Asia and India, where I met the most wonderful, intriguing and diverse people and seen the good, the bad and the ugly — all of which have left an indelible impact on my world perspective. I’m concluding my travels with a 10-day Tibetan Buddhist silent meditation retreat in the Himalayas (to be exact, Dharamshala, where the Dalai Lama lives in exile). If you read the rules / code of conduct for participants (swipe to check em out), you’ll understand why I’m a bit terrified yet also excited. It’s not exactly going to one of those fluffy retreats; more like...detox boot camp...(??) Haha. It’s going to be hard af but I have a feeling it’ll be an amazing, transformative experience, and a fitting way to end 2018.
Wishing everyone a happy thanksgiving. 🙏🙏🙏
