“Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears.” – Les Brown
Today is a big day for me. I have always wanted to be passionate about writing and to share my thoughts and ideas out with the world. Honestly, I am not a writer, and it has never been a strength of mine. Making today a day where I push myself out of my comfort zone yet again. This blog will not be anywhere close to perfect, but I am so excited to share the insides and outs of my life with anyone willing to read.
This year has been the most challenging, educating and inspiring year of my life. I have learned more about myself in the last 6 months than I did with any education I’ve ever received. Dropping my life and relationships in sunny, but freezing Calgary, and upping myself across the world on my own was the best decision of my life. Not only did Australia introduce me to some of the most wonderful people I have ever come across, but the country introduced me to the best version of myself. This trip of a lifetime has inspired me to up and leave once again, leaving me feeling stuck and bored in my hometown for now.
Feeling stuck in my hometown is something I never imagined ever feeling. I have always loved my home, and I still do, but a part of me knows that I have unfinished business and am not ready to stay home. Calgary is beautiful, and I am so lucky to call Southern Alberta my home. With that being said, there is so much of the world I need to see. I have such an overwhelming urge to get up and leave and to stay away until I’m feel content and ready to come home. Honestly, who knows when that will be. I have no doubt in my mind that backpacking across the world will be the best decision I have ever made. The presence of likeminded people creates such a feeling of ease and comfort, that I could never put into words. There is nothing that excites me more than imagining myself somewhere in the world with amazing people.
Once again, I am not a writer. But maybe, I hope to be. Although I’m not strong and confident in my writing skills, I enjoy it. Putting my life out to the world is both exciting and terrifying, and that’s why I have pushed myself to do so. I mean, whats the worst that could happen? It can only get better from here.
