"Strength doesn't come from what you can do. It comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn't." ✨
On my last day in Chile I spent the day in Santiago. I had the best time waking around the city and seeing the sites-beautiful buildings everywhere, so many trees and parks, and the most incredible street art!! (see my story!) Then we got to the Plaza de Armas- the main town square with beautiful old buildings. I took my phone out of my bag to take a photo of the cathedral and as I was taking the picture, some guy ran up behind me, grabbed my phone out of my hands, and started running away with it.
I chased him down the street screaming at him to stop. Luckily it was a really busy street so other people started to notice what was happening, and he only got about half a block before a group of guys tackled him and got my phone back.
People were saying it was a shame to end the trip on that note but I disagree. There are people who do shitty things everywhere, but there are far more people who are kind. So grateful to kind strangers who risked their own safety to help me. And most of all, I’m happy that I didn’t let fear paralyze me and that I stood up for myself- I’m not sure that I would have been able to do that before. I feel so much stronger and more powerful after all my experiences in Chile. If I can find my breath in my wheel pose on the edge of a cliff when it’s cold and windy, I can do pretty much anything 💗 |
