Out with a Bang
For the past few years I've taken on the motto "Do Life Big." If you're wondering if I made this up myself, the answer is No. As much as I'd love to take credit for this I cannot. Jamie Grace, a Christian singer, has a song called "Do Life Big." The meaning behind this song comes from the familiar Bible verse that goes a little something like this...(I'm paraphrasing) Jesus came to give us life and we should live this life abundantly. I don't know what you think abundant means but to me it means more than enough, more than you can handle, BIG. Thus, "Do Life Big!" After my Mom died I vowed to myself that I would do my best to Do Life Big every-single-day-of-my-life. Perfect segue to how I spent the last 10 days of 2018!
We went on a Mediterranean Cruise on the MSC Meraviglia! This cruise left from Civatevecchia, the port in Rome. We spent 2 days in Rome before boarding an 8 day cruise that would take us to Palermo, Malta, Barcelona, Marseille, and Genoa, Italy. Best. Decision. Ever.
I would recommend this cruise and I actually want to do it again! We were adventurous and used the public transportation in all of the countries.
It rained when we ventured out in Rome and it was a little cold in Malta. Overall though the weather was pretty and a stark contrast to the usual sunny weather we experience in Abu Dhabi.
After this great vacay, I have really discovered that I love to travel and now I'm looking forward to Spring Break which will be our next getaway. I'm still in the planning stages of what we're going to do but we are definitely going to country hop. As I write this we have 86 days. 86 days before I board another airplane. 86 days before I catch the perfect sunset. 86 days for me to get this body swimsuit ready. (Head on over to Unique Does Cooking to check out the recipes I'm trying out in order to complete this mission.)
86 days for me to Do Life Big as much as I can.
Update: I never clicked post so this post has been in my drafts. So as of today we have 30 days and to say that I'm ready would be an understatement.
Remember to "Be Kind to One Another", "Do Life Big" and "Be Uniquely You"!

We have the same outlook in life. If there are things that you want to do with your life, and you desire to make it as memorable as it can be, you need to make an effort for it. Big things don't come to those who are just waiting; you are the one who can make it happen for yourself! I have this feeling that you enjoyed your experience at Mediterranean Cruise on the MSC Meraviglia. Not all people can be part of that; that's why you should have savored the experience and took a lot of pictures so you will always have memories you'll go back!
