“Life is very easy just buy that f**king ticket” was singing in my head for the last two years after I heard Azuka Kantimatta saying this just like that when I was in Bali for the first time. My first thoughts were “Oh, my God, I could never just quit my life like this, but how I would love to do it…”
I was thinking about this “crazy idea” every day and I asked myself one day: But… What is holding me back? I don’t like my job, I don’t have kids or something to stop me and I discovered I was holding myself back, me and my fears, nobody else… and just like that, I decided to drink my thoughts and fears with some coffee and just leave.
Everybody was shocked, obviously… But I promised myself I will be back here one day… and if not now, then when?
My first week in Ubud was at least interesting…
On the first night of arrival, I was so happy but in the same, I felt so lonely not having somebody to share my happiness with. I cried and asked myself “What did I do?!”
I send a message to my soul mate and asked her to pray for my twin souls to appear and she told me she already did.
The next morning I woke up in paradise, the sun was rising above the palm trees and the feeling of loneliness vanished and I realized what I did, I followed my heart. I love being on my own and have company only when I want to. This is what I was dreaming about for so long…
Eating, reading, writing, swimming, tanning and just wandering on the beautiful streets of Ubud it was all I needed to do to be happy.
But it is impossible to live on your own in such a friendly place… and besides people, I have met angels.
I was on the streets far away from my home one night and I was searching for a taxi scooter, I was so proud that I discovered a trustful application to find a taxi but… in the middle of the night, I was about to find out that this application is not working all the time. What to do? Who do you call in a place where you are alone and don’t know anybody?
After I panicked for some minutes wondering if it is safe to walk alone on the streets of Ubud… I send a message to somebody I refused with two occasions that day:
“So… I have a problem!”… and he came to save me in two minutes. I was sure he was going to say he is busy like I said to him a few hours ago… but no, he took the time to take me back to my place safe.
I don’t know what it was, the fear that I felt, the gratefulness in my heart for the help… but… when I got up on his scooter and took him in my arms, I felt safe and it was for the first time I saw with my own eyes that Angels, twin souls, however, you want to call them, exist, if you believe in them and if you allow them to come… I’ve let my pride down and ask for help and accept it and this way I learned my first lessons here…
So I am doing just fine… if I have problems, the Universe makes the time to send me angels for help…
Happiness has a very easy recipe: Just Let Go.
