I laughed when people were telling me “oh have a nice trip to Thailand! That’ll be so relaxing!” Im doing a 200-hour yoga teacher training. Did NOT expect this to be a relaxing vacation by any means. But strangely, I’m feeling more relaxed and at ease than I have in months. Just walking out of…… Continue reading sah wah dee khaa from thailand!
Twenty-six. Twenty-six means I’m no longer in my early twenties. I’m no longer included in that age group of “don’t worry about it, no one’s got it figured out yet”.
