J & L Want You To Know...

Let’s go to Cuba…

I find that in daily life it’s so easy to find reasons that we shouldn’t do things.  We are too busy, too nervous, to broke, and on and on.

What I have also found is that if we make things a priority, everything will fall into place.

You will hear me say over and over that I am a firm believer in positive thinking. If you let doubt in, it will take over. If you fill your mind with positive thoughts, everything will work out just fine.

When you read the sentence above, did you think, “well maybe for you, it’s not that easy for me?”  That’s what I’m talking about, push that thought right out, and fill it with something that will give you strength, hope, and forward movement!!

I have listened, and read so many “self help” books and the underlying message I leave with is, if you believe you can’t, you won’t, but if you believe you can, you will!

It has taken me years to be able to find the positive in most situations. If something doesn’t work out, I think, maybe it wasn’t to be, and adjust from there. I don’t spend anytime focusing on what didn’t happen, but quickly adjust and keep moving forward.

“If I believe I can, I will.” Luck has nothing to do with it, motivation and positivity does.

Jared and I are two red personalities. We are both driven, strong minded, and pretty sure our way is right. We have learned over the years to give here and there, and mind our own business if it’s something we don’t need to be involved in. I have things at our house I run, and Jared has his. We work well like this.

Because of the definition of roles we live in, and the busyness of life, sometimes I feel like communication can escape us.

Travel has been our answer. We travel to be together, to communicate, to have a common love, to reconnect, and to remember how much we love each other.

We started to plan a trip a few moths back knowing we needed a break from life, and time uninterrupted together. We had planned Cabo, but things just kept getting in the way. It’s that “life happens” thing.

We knew that we wanted to go somewhere and we knew with my crazy schedule and his, that we needed to fit it in sooner than later. Adjusting from the “fail” of planning Cabo we evaluated where we wanted to go, and found one relatively open weekend.

Jared and I have many date nights where possible destinations consume our minds, and conversation . We have often mentioned Cuba, determined to see the place that is said to be frozen in time.

We knew that sanctions between the US and Cuba had been somewhat lifted, and that travel was possible.

A Decision was made,  and we found a way to make it happen.

This week I will dive into travel to Cuba from my perspective. It’s still a little tricky, but very possible, and completely worth it.  I feel like my brain is flooded with so much information to pass on, and as always a few sketchy stories.

I can’t wait to show you the love I have, for the place that is coming back to life.
