This weekend I experienced the Día de los Muertos festival at Hollywood Forever Cemetery for the first time. I did not know what to expect and the fact that it was in the cemetery spooked me a bit. With all that, I was determined to go because NOTHING stops me from experiencing new things. I had an amazing time, learned so much, ate great food, and saw some of the most beautiful and thought-provoking ofrendas. For the months to come I want to continue to immerse myself in other cultures so I can learn and better understand. I walked away with a new appreciation for life and all of the people that came before me. This experience inspired me in so many ways. Motivation for this Monday: Try something new, even if it scares you, even if you don't understand it. There's so much to be gained from it.
