A Trip To Big Bend: Born and Back Again

My Trip To Big Bend

Sometimes The Universe likes to do a throwback. In this case, The Universe wanted to remind me where I was from, where I have been, and where I am going. First stop? El Paso to Big Bend.

Part of my job that pays the bills involves making commercials. While worried I wouldn’t be able to attend all the locations due to scheduling conflicts, The Universe always finds a way to get you to the right place, at the right time.

With the last leg of the production schedule starting where I was born, taking me to where I grew up and back home to where I live now, I took some time to reflect in the dry heat. While I did feel as if I was at one point in a mirage, I knew that The Universe had brought me back to my roots and gifted me with some good ole God Wink connections along the way.

Don’t get me wrong, Big Bend was big and beautiful. I just would not recommend going out there in the summer. 

Life Lesson

When we are given an opportunity to sit back and look at the picture we’ve already painted for ourselves, it’s nice to know that the painting is far from finished. If The Universe ever gives you an opportunity to look back, takes you back, and then brings you to the present with some great shots of the possible future, make sure you make a video montage.

But in all seriousness, this production pilgrimage awakened me to start connecting the dots I planted for myself back in Ireland. Which goes to show, you don’t have to travel far to get to where you’re going. Sometimes the next step towards the future is to take you down memory lane. So take it in and get ready to skyrocket to the next level.
