SOME moments you experience while travelling end up completely changing your life. The memories stay with you forever and years later a sight or sound will trigger that memory and take you right back to that moment once again. I found that just experiencing new places seems to promote self-development for me. Travelling and the new experiences that come with it, has been my most influential teacher. I have learned the most about myself while travelling. Typically most people do not change until they experience a life-changing event that moves them, shakes them up, and changes their perspective. For many people, including myself, it may be the death of a friend or family member. For others, it may be a life-threatening illness. However, if you really want to CHOOSE to change your life and perspective, you can choose to travel. This is one life-changing experience that you voluntarily undertake. You don't have to travel far, basically you just need to get off your couch and your phone and experience life. Make it a goal to regularly go some where that you have never visited. While you are there, BE PRESENT. Look around, take in the sights and sounds, take a few pictures but BE ALL THERE!! This blog is about my travels and experiences. I hope to inspire you to experience some of your own.
