Life is not meant to fit in a box. You have a choice. You can write your own story. You know you don’t want to live someone else’s life. What you really want is freedom.
“When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”
― The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
People will try to put you down. To tell you that it cannot be done. That YOU cannot do it. Take a deep breath. Picture the life you want to live and start working towards getting there. Don’t take the back seat. Follow your dreams.
Just because you can get into something, it doesn’t mean it fits. Are you happy with your life right now? Or do you feel the need to escape? Spread your wings and start living. Stop making excuses. The only person standing in your way is YOU.
Travel is a state of mind. You don’t have to travel to far away lands to build memories. You don’t have to embark on a never-ending journey to start living. Even the shortest of experiences can be etched in your mind and change your life forever.
There is magic in this world, some we find, some we make.
“All grown-ups were once children… but only few of them remember it.”
― The Little Prince, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Travel is seeing the world anew.
It’s returning home to places you’ve never been before.
It’s becoming more porous to new customs and cultures.
It’s being anchored in the present moment.
It’s sunrises over new horizons.
It’s tasting something for the very first time.
It’s drinking champagne with a different view.
It’s long walks in nature.
It’s laughing out loud.
It’s making new friends.
It’s living the life your soul longs for.
“I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.”
— Eric Roth, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
