I‘m always overwhelmed when I go on a trip. Planning, Packing, etc, etc, everything seems so exciting. Butterflies start fluttering in the stomach, strange enthusiasm fills in the heart. Going to a new place, meeting new people, tasting new food, being exposed to a new culture, everything seems so much exciting.
You know the best part of Travelling is — it teaches us amazing life lessons. Those life lessons we never learned in any school such as how to meet people, how to think creatively and adapt to any kind of situation, how to get out of your comfort zone, how to experience different cultures, how to not sweat the small stuff, how to open up yourself up to a world of human interaction, etc, etc.
That’s why we should go on a trip. Now, you must have thought about something and I’m sure what it is. You are thinking that I haven’t enough money to go on a trip, isn’t it? Then for your kind information, money is not the problem. The problem is — You. Yes, You got it right! It’s you, it’s your excuses. You don’t want to come out of your comfort zone.
What are you saying, friend? No, No, Nothing like that! I want to travel but……
See, this “but”, has come to your lips, automatically.
Yes, you are absolutely right. I am afraid of coming out of my comfort zone. I have no money. How can I go on a trip?
Pal, money is not a big deal.
If you’re always crying for money and making other excuses, then you need to read this book:
You just need one thing and that is passion.
I’ve met many people, who are making 6 figures per month, who are well-settled and have all the luxurious stuff, still not going anywhere.
Because they have fear, they have excuses, they don’t want to get out of their comfort zones.
If we waste our money on traveling then when will we buy our home!
If we waste our money on traveling then how we will repay our loans!
If we waste our money on traveling then there will be no money left for our children’s marriage!
Blah, Blah, Blah………….. And the list of excuses goes on. It never ends.
But even after their retirements, they don’t go anywhere. They just keep making excuses about money and other things.
But My Dad’s thinking is different from these people, and so is mine. I’ve been traveling since I was only four. Thanks to my Dad, He used to take us to different-different places in India during his job. Since my father was fond of traveling, this quality has been inherited by me and my siblings.
He says that traveling teaches a lot that a school can’t. So I completely relate to this perception that Traveling is the best teacher. He also says that one day everything will remain here, and you will take nothing with you.
So why not utilize your time to do something interesting instead of wasting time on useless things.
As I said, I’ve been traveling since I was only four. I still, remember where I started my first journey. Yes – It is none other than Haridwar- A place where I saw the enormous Maa Ganga for the first time and my elder sister and I were filled with excitement. After that, we went to Lakshman Jhoola but I don’t remember any memories of this beautiful spot. I only remember Maa Ganga, as I bathed in it.
I got a chance to meet different kinds of people during my journeys. I’ve had a lot of unforgettable experiences throughout my journey to date. Even now, I miss those moments, when I spend some quality time with myself or my family and we talk about these. I still remember those special and adorable moments.
I have yet to experience more wonderful and thrilling experiences.
Traveling has always taught me a lot. I admire it a lot. Some of my incredible traveling experiences will remain close to my heart, Every time, traveling taught me amazing lessons, and this time, Traveling taught me one thing that I hardly could have learned from anyone else.
This special thing is— Self-Love.
Before that trip, I was lost, numb, and stressed. But my perspective changed when I went on this Self-love trip, I feel happier and more energetic. I’ll always remember it, and it will remain close to my heart. Because of this trip, I understood what Self-Love is. I learned about it. And I will always call it Self-love trip.
I had a lot of fun. I became a better version of myself and came in front of everyone as a new person who only loves herself now. I started to love myself the way I am, and when you do start to love yourself then you don’t need someone else’s love.
So before I wrap up, All I want to say is, Be a responsible traveler. Do not litter here and there. Don’t harm Mother Nature. Always carry a refilled water bottle with you. Experience local and little things over luxurious things.
