Gathering the Guts to Go Solo: Part 1
A lot of people wish they could travel, yet many just don’t. Not because they can’t afford it, but because they are waiting for someone to go with them. The truth is - and this is a lesson I learned quickly - if you wait for someone to be able to go with you, you will never go anywhere.
The chances of taking trips with people, especially longer ones, decrease exponentially as we get older and tied down with more and more responsibilities, maybe even a fear of feeling too old to do something (which is utter nonsense, in my mind). Unfortunately, this is just a fact of life. People have to pay for weddings, houses, babies, etc. Or they are tied up in a job which won’t allow them to sneak away.
My advice to you, dear wanderer, is to spread those wings of yours and fly into the unknown.
What makes life worth living is the ability to be vulnerable and have the courage to be the one and only you. Yes, it can be scary to take that first step, but that’s what I'm here for. I got you, brave soul.
