Currently in 'destination quarantine', living in a bungalow on Thailand's second largest island. Some of the other travelers I've met on the road have taken one of two options: return home or stay here in paradise. My choice was easy - ride it out.
Granting ourselves the gift of reflection at the end of the year is a fun activity for New Year's Eve - sitting in silence, mulling over all the memories we've collected. It gives us a chance to slow down and savor all the different facets of life. For me, it provides a chance to reflect on my character and growth. How have I changed? Are my actions and goals aligned with the person that I want to continue to be? Only when we record and reflect will we see the nuances that teach us a little more about ourselves every day.
