Here I Go Again On My Own

Here I Go Again On My Own

cali

Everyone should travel alone at least once. Traveling on your own has a freeing element to it.  You have no one to please, and can be completely selfish with your planning…or lack of.

When you travel with others, you have to keep their feelings in mind. There is a certain amount of compromise needed to keep the mood friendly.  It’s only fair, you may want to adventure out, and they want to lay by the beach, so you make time for both…what a drag. 😉 Just kidding, I love travelling with my friends and loved ones, just not every trip.

While I enjoy a day or so of just relaxing during my travels, I mostly enjoy exploring the area. I like to be on the move and take it all in.  It makes me feel anxious when I am wasting vacation doing nothing.  I suppose I feel like I only have a short amount of time at any one destination, and I want to pack as much in my days as possible. There are always more interesting things to see and do than you can fit into one trip, so I feel as though each moment sitting is just less I get to see.

Not everyone feels like me. Some people like to escape their hectic everyday lives and just find somewhere to plop down and relax. I can appreciate that, but it is not my style.

Shopping is also not my style. Not really anyway, nothing other than some souvenirs or necessities for the trip.  I should say I dislike “big store” shopping, as I do enjoy going to open air markets and antique shops, and finding souvenirs there if possible.  But I avoid the malls and big shopping centers at all cost.

So this is where solo trips come in. In my opinion, everyone should travel alone at least once a year.  Not only do you get to design a vacation exclusively to your liking, but your time to yourself helps you grow as well.  Spending time alone, helps you be fully aware of who you are, without any influence.

I have learned a lot about myself through travel. For example, I had no idea I was adventurous.  Sounds ridiculous right? Well it wasn’t until I took my first tropical vacation that I realized that I was bored just sitting on the beach.  When I go somewhere new I want to meet the people, try the food, and find the adventure. I seek out activities like exploring caves, zip lining, and snorkeling with Manta Rays.  I enjoy doing things that get the adrenaline going, or at least fulfill my need for new experiences. These breaks from every day life of taking care of others, are what send me home feeling revived and ready to tackle real life again.  Near the end of my trip, I will spend a relaxing day at the beach appreciating my wonderful week or two in paradise, and that is enough for me.  Before I know it, it’s time to go home.  I leave with a smile and a full heart.  I return home happy and my soul renewed.

Take it from me. Plan to go somewhere on your own this year. Choosing yourself and spending even a few days doing exactly what you want, will bring you home happier. And who wouldn’t appreciate a happier version of you?

Take a Flying Leap…

Take a Flying Leap…

You can start over. If you wake up one morning, and you realize that you are as far as you could possibly be from a life that makes you happy, you can start over.  Don’t hate yourself because you got lost.  Don’t blame yourself for being an adult and not having every answer or every milestone met.  Just give yourself a little love, and look at where you are.  Then look at where you want to be. There is a path that connects the dots between the two, I promise.

Everything is a beautiful mess right now. I am not where I want to be, and my life is nothing like I imagined it would be.  I have the weight of the world on my shoulders.  The thing is, it’s not my weight.  It is the weight of the expectations of people I let get to me, about my life.  I felt heavy because I haven’t met the milestones that others had mapped out for me, and for the first time, I feel at peace realizing that.  I feel at peace because I know that all of those goals that I was racing to meet, breaking my fingernails while I clawed at the life others wanted me to have, don’t matter to me. I can let go.  I can get rid of these possessions everyone thought I needed.  I can live the life I want to live.  I am not upset that I did not get a Bachelor’s degree in Business, and a Master’s in marketing.  I am not upset that owning a home wasn’t for me.  I am not upset.  I am weeding through the mess, and picking out what I want and need.

I came to the realization recently that the most important goal I have, the only thing I feel obligated to achieve, is to make sure that my kids know that I love them and that I am here for them every single day of their lives. That, I can do. In the process, I want to show them the world, and teach them to be kind.  I want to teach them that they can chase whatever dreams they want, even if other people do not understand their choices.

My kids are full of creativity, like myself, and they are being persuaded to let go of their talent, because it is not safe or  lucrative in the eyes of others. The thing is, I have spent so much time trying to be successful at someone else’s dream life, and I have failed. I have failed miserably. Maybe I landed a good job, and bought a house.  But I did not excel at it. I am not happy in it.  While trying to make it all fit together piece by piece, I have made myself miserable in the process. I was actually losing pieces of myself, because I was ignoring them! My heart is somewhere else, and I finally know that.  Someone else’s version of success, does not have to be your own.  Be successful in your own heart, and you will be happy.

I hope that my “babies”, as well as my readers, will forget the opinions of others. Find the talent that lives inside of you, and go with it. Go with your heart, and follow your gut. Do not be afraid to take that leap of faith.  Because you know what? If it doesn’t work out, something else will. At the end of the day, at least you can say you tried, and you suited up.  Maybe your dreams won’t work out, but taking the step toward them, will lead you to the next step that takes you closer to what will work out.

So now I must decide what I want to do, and take the ever terrifying leap. I have to make a plan to leave my current job.  It won’t be today, or even this month, probably not even this year.  Just because you know you want to make a change, doesn’t mean you have to do it blindly.  You can plan ahead, and change your life without creating chaos.  Just make sure you go through with it.  Don’t think about it, come up with a great plan, just to chicken out.  Great plans were meant to be followed. So go for it!

What does this have to do with travel, and why is it in my blog? Well, remember how I mentioned that there will be a little “therapy” mixed in? Here it is, now get up off the couch and take a flying leap….into your dreams! 😉 Ok, I also shared it because my dreams are to make a career out of traveling and writing this blog, so I am planning my own big jump.  Just packing my parachute at the moment…stay tuned!
