Feeling Alive! A Liberating Moment

December 3 – Moment. Pick one moment during which you felt most alive this year. Describe it in vivid detail (texture, smells, voices, noises, colors).

The moment where I felt the most alive was my last full day in Singapore this past summer.

The reason why I felt so alive was because I was essentially out on my own in a completely different country. If you know me well, you understand that I hate to be out of my comfort zone, so venturing out in Singapore alone was a huge deal for me.

With most of my friends already gone, I decided to take the last day to walk around Singapore and have a little adventure. I found Little India (only stopping once for directions!), got henna on my arm, rode the MRT (the beautiful Singapore subway system) all by myself to a Tweetup, made some new friends and got back to my hostel all in one piece.

Generally I’m a very social person who hates to be alone. But this particular day I felt so free roaming the streets of Singapore by myself. I got to stop whenever I wanted, go to the shops I wanted to, and walk around for as long as I wanted. It was so much fun and it felt so…liberating! I believe it was around this moment where I decided that I needed to travel more and see the world.
