Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff: My Week in San Pedro de Atacama, Chile

Hi everyone,

I want to begin this Motivational Monday by apologizing for my absence. I spent the past week in Chile, disconnecting from technology and getting in touch with the world around me. Today’s Motivational Monday is all about learning not to sweat the small stuff.

During my trip in San Pedro de Atacama is went on multiple hikes and participated in many Star Watching excursions. I was able to stand on top of Valle de La Muerte and look down to see a beautiful valley. After going star gazing and seeing another galaxy, I learned that our Earth, although important to protect, it is just a small part of our galaxy which is just a small part of the universe.

Throughout my trip I met many wonderful people, all whom were extremely happy to be out in nature, enjoying the beautiful desert. They were not concerned with what clothes they were wearing, how they looked or what the latest trends were. What mattered most was showcasing the beautiful world around them.

Next time you are thinking about your shoes matching with your outfit, or whether your makeup is perfect, take time to remember to focus on those things that truly matter such as your health, being kind to others, caring for our environment and inspiring people to be the best version of themselves.
