Your life is your message to the world. Make sure it’s inspiring ♥

Talking to yourself and getting things done is more appropriate then telling hundreds of people about who you are and how you are going to make it happen.

Wanderlust is a very strong, irresistible impulse to travel and I am completely overcome with this desire. I’m always amazed when people tell me that travel doesn’t really interest them and they don’t really feel a need or a longing to see all of the amazing things, people and places this BIG world has to offer. I’m sure they are equally confused by me packing up and selling my belongings, putting my career on hold, walking away from the security of benefits and a well paying job and wandering the globe by myself. I realize it seems crazy to most, but I’m okay with it. This is my dream…Your first responsibility is to be happy. The second is to make everyone else happy.

It isn’t too difficult to pack up your life and start all over again. Perhaps a bit overwhelming and scary in the beginning, but then you get into the swing of things and everything begins to fall into place, and if it doesn’t then adjust your mindset and keep moving forward. Don’t hold yourself and your dreams back out of fear. Obstacles are placed in front of us to see if what we want is really worth fighting for.

I always dreamed about exploring as many countries as I possibly could…. Then one day I said to myself  “Why not? What do I have to loose? The way I’m living cannot be it? There has to be more to life….If anything I’ll regret not doing it.” So I went with the feeling deep inside of me that longed for something more than spending the rest of my life in one place without having explored every experience to the fullest and embracing every opportunity that comes my way.

So why did I give up my world to see the world? When I’m traveling I feel so light and overcome with joy. Sitting on a sandy beach, riding a train/bus across country watching the landscape pass by, marveling at a local artists masterpieces, not knowing where I am going but I know I’m going to meet new friendly faces each day… It fills my entire being with happiness. Travel is one of the few things I do in my life that is just for me and the one thing in life that puts a permanent smile on my face as I stand in a new country knowing that I worked hard to get here and this moment…it is mine.

No matter what we need, desire and long for in our lives, you can have it. It’s yours! The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours.  It is an amazing journey and you alone are responsible for the quality of it.  So go for it! Because at the end, you don’t want to have any regrets.

    Ha ha….what a great adventure! To many what you are doing may be too scary to comprehend but to me you are one of the smart ones to follow your dreams! If only I had considered such a leap when young and void of responsibilities (ie., children). Hopefully someday you will tire of all these travels and decide to return home, because without such feelings the thought of being forced to return to that 8 to 5 day could be unbearable …truely a scary thought for a traveling gypsy! 🙂 Be safe!!

    Great post! I’m working on my next adventure in a year or two…moving to a new country where it will be easier to travel.

    Loved the video and pink hair! And I really want to go to New Zealand.
