Dear Diary,

       
     I had the pleasure of visiting the Cherokee Indian reservation, Smokey Mountains and the trip was just what I needed!  I wanted to do something for my birthday this year that was a bit more momentous, you know not the usual yay! 2 step, party, blahhhh.  I've wanted to venture into the Smokey's for a very long time and have always gazed on as we drove by when going to other states so it was between a birthday trip to Chicago or the Smokey's, My soul just took to the people, culture and ambiance of the Smokey's so that's what it was.  I've been on a spiritual journey for sometime now.. I mean we all are but, I've been more aware of things over the last few years.  My injury has been the icing on top to my very journey and eventhough I knew I wasn't gonna be able to hike through or even see any waterfalls or just most of the mountains something about just being out there had my soul urging to go.  I'm so happy that I did. The people we came in contact with (despite being told the Cherokee's weren't really friendly) were beautiful and hearing their story though different to my beliefs was very mesmerizing.  Today I got to venture out of the hotel and met with this amazing couple in their store, they sell jewelry and other artifacts from the local artists there. We got two beautiful necklaces which I will definitely be posting pictures of and since we've gotten them have been wearing ever since lols.

    One thing that I was in search of was to physically see someone that had overcame great adversity.  We all have deep stories but honestly how many do you really hear about? How many stories do you really hear about people in their darkest, scariest, saddest times and get to see them after and see them use the very pieces they have left to carry on?  I will admit that I don't know every detail on the history of the Cherokees but from what I do know I saw them as being that, that physical depiction of seeing someone use the pieces of what's left, holding on to it, protecting it, valuing it even though someone else may not and carrying on. I guess you can say they seemed somewhat heroic to me, and I was determined to meet at-least one native.  The couple we met were the perfect pair to meet and I will cherish their words forever. Thankyou to the young lady for her kind words and to her husband for his words aswell <3. My trip is complete. Thankyou for this opportunity God.
