I had the pleasure of traveling abroad for two weeks representing Maxim Magazine and doing special events for Steak n' Shake! It was an amazing experience but I came home feeling disappointed in myself.
I did not love others how God has loved me. I was quick to be annoyed and embarrassed by others behaviors when what I should have been doing was loving them, despite those behaviors. If you don't have time in your life to love on others, you're occupying your time with things that aren't of God. Unfortunately, I didn’t come to this realization until I was on my flight home, away from everyone and left alone with my own thoughts. I pray that God understands my heart and forgives me for my lack of love for others.
"Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”- John 13:34-35
With that being said, I became closer with old friends and made a few new ones, met some incredible locals, indulged in some amazing cultural foods, and shared many laughs and "beautiful soul" conversations. My heart is full and happy with these memories.
Now, on to the fun stuff - pictures from the trip! The first few days were in Monaco then we were off to Ibiza for 10 days!
