Being in a new city with many intricate alleyways, it is easy to get lost. Getting lost in Barcelona was a perfect stepping stone for me to grow as individual because every path I choose to go down is a risk I have to take.
Taking risks is not something I normally do. I am terrified that the mistakes I make from taking a chance will result in a negative outcome. Not following the map, turning the wrong way, getting lost were risks that could have led to a bad outcome, but it never came. I trusted myself, my partner, and the choices we made together to reach our final destination. From this experience, I learned the little mistakes do not matter because in the end, I will get to where I am going.
Reaching my destination had reassured this self-confidence within myself. Because of that experience, I am comfortable exploring new places and accepting whatever happens, happens because I know that eventually I will end up where I need to be. Where I want to be later in life is at a physical therapy clinic helping others in need. I do not know the exact path on how or when I will get there, but all I know is I am going to seize the opportunities given everyday because I want to be able to connect to people through my experiences.
