I feel so fortunate to have seen so many countries this year. To have visited many projects around the world and helping wherever I can. I know it’s not easy for everyone to travel or find the resources for it, but if you get the change: please GO. Make the decision quickly and embrace the adventure as it comes. Adventures don’t always need to take you on a plane 1.000km from home. Adventures and traveling can be wherever you like to go. Here are my reasons to always go on that next adventure.
Always go on that adventure:
Because it opens up your heart
I’ve found so many warmhearted people and kind cultures. I got so much unconditional help and advice. In different places around the world, so many people are more kind to each other than we are here (in more individualistic cultures). I experienced how communities really take care of each other. People dedicate their lives to help others. They save animals for a living or cook food for less privileged every day. I’ve gained more trust in people and found that most people have good intentions with each other. And meeting happy children in different places
Because it makes you feel more alive
Your everyday routine may feel comfortable, but time flies by very quickly. Months or weeks may be over in the blink of an eye then you spend your 40+ hours in the office weekly. And even though you love your job or your business, when you take time to unwind and step back for a little bit – I will assure you, it makes you feel more alive again. Exciting things and new experiences add up to your days and those days add up to your beautiful life.
Because it makes you more thankful
Seeing different cultures, lifestyles, chances and different life expectations allows you to reflect on your own life. From a
Because it gives you food for thought
Seeing how things are done differently, experiencing other traditions, seeing new cultures, spiritual experiences or discovering religions: traveling gives you food for thought and even can bring you new insights. It makes you grow and gives you things to think about. And if you travel well, you may also find the time to think a lot during your adventure. My tip: take time to think and write down your thoughts whenever you can. The thoughts that come to you during your trip may not come back easily once you’re home. If you can, please take that time now. It’s can be part of the trip.
because it brings you value
I experienced different people, different activities, different ways of traveling and multiple ways to spend my time. It made me realize what I value in my life and during my trips or holidays. Traveling gives you a better insight into what you like to spend your time on and what you give your energy to. This is incredibly valuable for each person to experience and it may change over time so never stop exploring your values on each adventure.
Because it reveals the adventurous side in you
Never thought you would be adventurous? Neither did I. I have been scared of the smallest things – such as high slides, swimming in open water, rocks, heights and so on. But when you go on an adventure that is
Because it makes you a better person
During my trips, I was able to experience things and get insights that made me grow as a person. It
Because you get to know yourself better
Each adventure you learn more about yourself and the things you find important. You will realize how you react to circumstances and situations. You learn how you handle being lost or meeting new people. You may find out the amount of alone time you need. What is important to you. What you value most in life.
Wishing you a beautiful next adventure!
