So, usually I put together a Tips Tuesday post on some blog tips and advice but today I thought I’d turn my hand to something a little different. I wanted to to offer some advice on why you should say yes to new adventures and how liberating and life changing they can be. As many of you know I handed in my notice at work and am currently travelling Thailand and Malaysia for a month before starting my full time blogging and freelance venture when I’m back in the UK – eek! It’s so exciting and nerve wracking at the same time, not knowing what my future will hold is scary but then I guess no-one knows and some things that seem certain in our lives don’t always turn out to be a permanent fixture.
Say ‘yes’ to something out of your comfort zone: This is always scary to do and I’m not saying it has to be something drastic as something that might seem a big deal to others might not be to you, but do something that you wouldn’t normally say yes to, whether it’s leaving a job you’re unhappy in to start a new career, saying yes to a date or booking a trip of a lifetime – do something that makes you scared as incredible things happen outside of your comfort zone.
Travel alone: I booked a solo trip to Paris last September for three days and loved it! Everyone thought I was having a quarter life crisis but it was just something that I really wanted to do, I wanted to prove to myself that I could get on a train to a foreign county and find my way around and actually enjoy myself, I had the best time and can’t wait to travel along again this year. To some people solo travelling ins’t a big deal but to me it was something that I was proud of accomplishing.
The world really is your oyster: This is actually the third time that I’ve visited Thailand but somewhere that I utterly adore and am genuinely considering moving to one day, even for a few months as I feel so at home here. But I’m also in the process of making some exciting plans for the rest of this year and next, it’s such a liberating feeling once you realise that the world is your oyster to do what you want, when you want – go places you’ve never seen and explore until your heart is full and your feet are weary.
Know your worth: Know that you are worth more than some people value you, if someone or something in your life is making you unhappy – remove it. I’ve realised that you don’t need negative people or energy in your life as it will hold you back, surround yourself with positive people, know your worth and do what you love – and mostly, remember to say YES to new adventures!
What will you be saying yes to this year? Share your adventures with me!
