September is the slowest month of the year for me, so a few weeks ago I decided to book a spontaneous trip to Spain with my boyfriend. I figure while I have all this “free time” coming up (is there really ever free time though?) I might as well take life by the reins and do exactly what I want to do. This all reflects back to ‘imi ola. ‘Imi ola teaches us that our purpose in life is to seek its highest possible form, and create it when we need to. Instead of twirling my thumbs in September, I’m going to keep myself busy and travel.
If you don’t know me well, you’ll soon learn I have a few passions in life, one of those is traveling. September happens to be a beautiful month to travel to Spain because its typically nice weather but it’s not packed with tourists. I’m officially thinking of this upcoming slow month as a blessing in disguise.
Another view on ‘imi ola is “it fosters optimism and a proactive inventiveness in us, fueling the fires of our creativity.” The specific destinations we are exploring are Barcelona and the Baleric islands. Although I’m not going their for work (clearly), I will use it as a time to inspire myself. The culture is so different than America so it will be amazing to get some inspiration as I hop among the islands. I think everyone needs a change of scenery every once and a while so we can stimulate our minds and think outside the box.
It’s safe to say I’ve switched my view point on September. First I was down in the dumps for being slow, but now I’m embracing reality and letting ‘imi ola take course. Next month I will need to update my “about me” page because I’ll no longer have the Barcelona itch!
I hope everyone has a lovely Labor Day weekend! Stay safe and have some fun!
