I am writing this post as I sip on a delicious cold brew coffee from one of the many adorable cafes in Medellin, Colombia!! This will be my home for the next month. How did that happen, you ask?
Remember the universe is always conspiring in our favour. One rainy Sunday, as I was scrolling through my Facebook feed an ad for UNSETTLED popped up, I was intrigued so I clicked on the link. Long story short they host these month-long experiences all over the world and the had something the month of August. I immediately applied because in my new normal, I have this month completely to myself – as my boys are with their father. After being bored to tears last year, when they left I knew I would not make that mistake again.
There is an amazing energy in this city, it is palpable. It has complety transformed itself form the dangerous city that Pablo Escobar built and ran his drug empire in. That transformation is what really intrigued me, as I myself am a work in progress. This month, I will take every advantage that this amazing city has to offer as I come closer to rediscovering the woman I use to be.
