Traveling has always been my passion since I was a kid. My mom took me to Belize at least three times a year. I also lived there for a year so I know what its like to be away from something that makes you comfortable. I know that we all have fear and a lot of people don’t travel because they’re scared, but it’s actually the most freeing experience. When I travel I become fearless and humbled. I feel like I can just pack up and move to that place. I ask my husband at least once on all our trips to move to another small Caribbean island and he proceeds to look at me like I’m crazy. My oldest is in college and my youngest can make friends anywhere so the thought always crosses my mind.
If you haven’t traveled I’d like to tell you that you are missing out big time. If you don’t have anyone to go with take a niece or a nephew. Take your grandmother or grandfather. I have a special star named after my grandma that I discovered in Hawaii after she died because I felt so guilty that I never taken her there. She’s ask me all the time and I kept putting it off. I guess I was selfish when I was a younger. I felt like she’d always be here so I can put it off.
Basically what I’m saying is live out your dreams with no fears and stop say next year or tomorrow. Why not now? You deserve it. Take yourself someplace magical even if it’s a long drive to someplace you’ve never been. Always explore and get in touch with you. That’s what traveling does for me, it allows me to be present and aware of all the beautiful things that God created for us to see.
