The last year has been beyond difficult with my father’s tragic and sudden death. So, when I think about the last year naturally that is the first thing that comes to mind, but meaningful is NOT a word I would use to describe it. The question actually stumped me. In fact I had to look up the word “meaningful” just to make sure I understood it correctly
Meaningful: 1. having meaning 2. having serious, important or useful quality or purpose.
What happened in the last year that was important, was useful and had quality and purpose?
My most meaningful moment of last year was a trip I took to Cabo, Mexico. Yeah, I know what you’re thinking, a trip to Mexico was meaningful? Really? Yes.
It happened to be a trip that i didn’t even know that I needed physically, emotionally and spiritually. What I thought was going to be a regular ol’ press trip (with total strangers) turned out to be an incredible 4 day healing process for my mind, body and spirit. I was able to be completely alone, no responsibilities, no pressure and nobody to take care of other than myself. A funny thing happens when you are left all alone, you let go, you let your guard down, you relax and you can just breathe.
The entire experience was incredible; being pampered, being wined and dined, drinking to much tequila, dancing, running on the beach and sailing. I also met and got to know some very kind and interesting people, I think it was the comfort of strangers that also made this trip so meaningful. I laid on the beach listening to the ocean, running my fingers through the sand and let my body bake in the sun. I cried, and cried and cried.
It was quiet, my mind was free and it was as if every single emotion that was built up in my body was being released. I let go of everything. I left a pile of fear, anger and sadness on that beach in Mexico. The four days I spent on this trip completely lifted me, it was exactly what I needed. What seemed like a lucky press trip actually turned out to be a significant moment in my healing process, it was practically an outer body experience. I knew I was exactly where I was suppose to be at exactly the right time.
I would say that that trip was very meaningful, important, extremely useful, and served its purpose. It was meaningful.
