One major flaw of mine is that I compare myself to others – I can’t be happy and reach my full potential if this nasty habit continues…
Loved ones around me are “progressing at faster rates”: moving into new places, getting engaged/married, are more financially stable than me…
Rather than getting bitter, I want to get better!
And let’s face facts here: I wouldn’t be who I am today if I hadn’t traveled and seen the incredible things that I’ve seen! So what if I’m carrying a bit more student loan debt because of study abroad? Who cares that I’m not living with my boyfriend at the moment? I knew that travel would alter my life’s course, and that’s fine. Why do I care what others around me (family, “friends”…) think?!?!
In honor of my choices, that I am VERY proud of, here’s my travel timeline:
Canada (as a baby several times and again in 2011)
*no photo from Canada unfortunately…*
Germany (2012 – one month)
France (2014 – two months)
England (2014 and again in 2016)
Italy (2014 and again in 2016)
The Netherlands (2014)
Iceland (2014 and again in 2016, also visiting again May 2018)
*no saved photos of Iceland unfortunately…more to come this spring!!!*
Denmark (a few times in 2016)
Sweden (2016 – five months)
Czech Republic (2016)
Thailand (2017 – one month)
I hope this inspires you to live your OWN life!
