Black Sea is a gorgeous place, with lots of memories for me. I have been there before too, some years ago, so this year when it came about choosing a holiday place, I chose the Black Sea. I don`t know why but I like it very much. This year was different from the rest of the years: I was there only with a group of fellow writers. It was a great experience! We would have long talks about all kinds of things, we would go and have lunch or dinner together, we would also go for walks…! I had a terrific time! And best of all, I got to meet other writers as well! They were from the Northern part of Romania. Usually, people`s accent from there is somewhat different from the Southern accent so I could listen to these people like for a whole week! I love the way they talk!:)
The resort we went to is called Neptune and it`s very beautiful. In the first days or so I was so busy discovering it!:) Yes, I have to admit that I love venturing myself into unseeing territories. Of course, I didn`t see the entire resort as it is quite big but I did see the main touristic points…:) so it was alright from this point of view…:)
Walks, chatting, shopping, restaurants, sitting on the beach…everything was great! I enjoyed very much my time there and I am really grateful to the Universe for arranging things this way…:)
This holiday brought to me a lesson too, a lesson that I won`t easily forget. It`s about the sea. In one of the days, me and a friend of mine went out to a restaurant to have lunch. It was a restaurant that had a superb view toward the sea. My friend asked me whether I want to stay inside or on the terrace. Of course, I took the second option as I really love admiring the sea. So we were at the table, waiting for the food.
After having a little discussion with my friend, I turned my gaze to the left side, where the beautiful blue sea was. For a moment, I only looked at it, without even thinking. As a matter a fact, I didn`t even want to think! I just wanted to be in the silence, be in that subtle bond between me and the sea. I stared at it for several minutes.
“It`s so beautiful…The sea is so wide, so powerful… So LIMITLESS…!” I thought.
When this last word popped in my mind, I felt like tears were coming in my eyes…I was very much inspired by that word, by the sea itself! Limitless…? Yes, I love that. Be fearless, be strong, be bold, be EVERYTHING you can be! This is what the sea was teaching me while glancing at it and this is what it was showing to me! I couldn`t have asked for a clearer example, and I couldn`t have asked for a better teacher. In that particular moment, it was only the sea and I. I would watch at its broad and blue horizon, at its strength and might, at its wisdom and intelligence…I have received the sea`s message, that is for sure.
“You really love the sea, don`t you?” my friend had asked me. I looked at her and smiled.
“Yes, I love the sea. Not only it is beautiful, but it is a great teacher too” I replied. Then, the waiter came with our food and we started eating. From time to time, I would look at the sea again. The word Limitless was on my mind…
Every time I go on a trip or vacation, I have this intention to learn something out of it. I guess it`s a desire of mine for evolution and development. I can`t help it and I can`t do any differently. I want to grow, I want to extend myself, I want to evolve as much as I can, as a human being. Otherwise, why coming on this Earth? Why bother?
I see life as an opportunity to grow and develop yourself. This is life`s main purpose if you ask me. I will always want to expand and extend myself. It`s a strong desire that comes from within and I ask life to bring me all those circumstances that will help me grow. Till the very last day on this Earth, I will be asking for them. At the Black Sea, life has once again showed me that it knows about my wish. Thank you, life. Thank you, Black Sea.
See you soon!:)
