The Puerto Rico Experience...Island life...Sigh
No one knew my name, no one knew my profession, no one cared what I was eating. No one knew me. When people spoke, they did because they wanted to, not because it was expected. There were no expectations placed on me, I, for the first time in my life, did not have to be "ON!" Oddly enough, having no pressure on me, I was bursting with energy, laughter and no stress. I joked with Nik and said that if everyone could experience this feeling of no cares that Botox would be no longer needed, as it is used to make you appear relaxed. Why should any one settle and be ok with appearing relaxed, experience it. I am saddened to think that I as well have willing to settle for appearing relaxed.
I didn't wear makeup on the trip, no one noticed, no one cared. My hair was usually in a ponytail, flip flops and bathing suit were the uniform for the trip after the race. It was so nice to be unplugged.
