Guest Blog Post: Living in the Moment

By: Danna Mazzola

The Alchemist
By Paulo Coelho

I recently finished a book that I couldn’t have read at a better time in my life. It made me think to myself that I plan WAY too much and I need to rediscover my purpose in this world and my love of travel. To live in the moment and experience those adventures that you’ve always wanted but talked yourself out of because they cost money or weren’t the responsible choice at the time according to others. The book was called “The Alchemist,” by Paul Coelho. (Which I highly recommend)

Sometimes it feels like we have our life together and then there’s times when everything changes in the blink of an eye. I had one of those weekends…and I found myself rediscovering the importance of spontaneity, travel, making new friendships, and rekindling old ones. I took this new found confidence of living in the moment and decided….now is the time….now is the time to stop making excuses and truly live my life to the fullest and experience all that I can get my hands on!

So what did I do? I decided to book the VRX trip to Italy and Switzerland!!

What better way to appreciate the world we live in than to travel and experience it?! When it came to deciding which trip I admit I was torn between a couple….BUT I come from a large Italian family so my heart has always dreamt of visiting Italy one day. So why wait and dream? I’d rather live my dream. I hope you feel the same. See ya on the trip!

So, take a chance, travel as much as possible, be kind and go with the flow. You never know what sort of ups and downs are around the corner so don't forget to sit back and enjoy the ride! 

I'll leave you with one last quote from 'The Alchemist.' 

“It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.” - Paul Coelho
