I can’t stand it to think my life is going so fast and I am not really living it.

3 Lessons Solo Travel Taught Me

slightlyinfectious:

1. Comfort is Overrated

I use bold to mean uncomfortable. So, what “be bold” really means is “embrace discomfort.” It is discomfort that produces awareness and growth — not comfort.

Sure, comfort feels good. It wraps you up in easiness and coddles you. It’s safe and warm, and lulls you into inaction. It likes to keep you where you are. It convinces you not to push beyond your self-imposed limitations.

Comfort persuades you to stay in relationships, careers and cities you’ve outgrown. It is one of the most powerful forces behind dreams deferred, risks not taken and life unexplored.

You cannot be both bold and comfortable at the same time. Boldness requires you to step outside of your comfort zone.

If you want to integrate more boldness into your day, ask yourself a simple question before completing a task or making a decision. What is the easiest, most comfortable action I can take? Then, eliminate that option and go with one that causes you a little more apprehension.

2. Commitment is Underrated

 It’s funny how commitment has the ability to minimize fear. Once I bought the plane ticket to Indonesia, fear took a back seat to planning the trip. Maybe that’s because we feel fear when we think we are in some kind of danger; if the danger isn’t real, the fear is just imaginary, too. The commitment, however, is real.

The more you commit to yourself and follow through on your commitment, the more you will learn to trust yourself. The more you trust yourself, the more confident you will become.

The more confident you become, the less you will allow fear to stand between you and the thing you want to do. And the less you allow fear to stand between you and the thing you want to do, the bolder you will be.

3. Most Fear Only Exists if You Make it Real

 When fear tries to stop you from making a commitment you really want to make, ask yourself if the danger is real or imagined. Nothing that I feared happened! I was breathing life into a fear of danger that never existed.

Compare it to the regret you will feel if you let fear win. Fear or regret? Which would you rather feel?

Fear is temporary. Regret is forever.

Cultivate a habit of making more commitments to yourself and keeping them. Start small and commit often. Promise to call up a friend you haven’t spoken to recently, take a walk, speak up in class or offer a suggestion in a meeting.

Commitments that cause you a bit of uneasiness are the best ones to make and keep because the more you embrace discomfort and conquer it, the more you will welcome it for opportunity it presents.

Soon enough, you will get to the point when not doing something you said you would do will cause you more discomfort than doing it.

Just because I accept you as you are does not mean that I have given up all hope of your improvement.

Today

Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.
