I travel for the sheer thrill of it. I travel to step out of my comfort zone and find myself in the process. To learn. This has strengthened my principles and helped me keep an open mind.
Everywhere I go, I try to challenge myself. To push myself to the limit. I always want to do something I have never done before. There’s a certain element of thrill in doing something for the first time. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again “I’ll try anything at least once”. I love the thrill, I love ADRENALINE!
Little did I know, I learned a lot of things from my “self-induced brushes with death”. Here are a few…
“Just because we have lots of it, that doesn’t mean it’s never gonna run out”
“Letting go is never easy but in the end, no one is holding yourself back but YOU!”
“We all have doubts, we all have fears. We can either face it or work our way around it. Either way, once we’re past it, DOUBTS BECOME CHALLENGES AND FEARS BECOME EXCITEMENT”
“Not everyone who tells you to fly really mean it. Sometimes, they just want to see you fall. Just like not everyone who says ‘I got your back’ really do. You are the only person you can depend on”.
