“Just because my path is different, doesn’t mean i’m lost”
Over the weekend I went to a house warming at a family friends and his girlfriends new house. They are 24, have two beautiful children and being in their house got me thinking about just how different our paths are. I am at that age now where a lot of my peers are settling down with their partners and buying houses, renting flats and having babies. Things that send absolute shivers down my spine. I’m not upset about it though and I think the above quote sums it up perfectly, I know my time will come, I just have a little exploring to do first.
“You’re always one decision away from a totally different life”
If I didn’t have AUS planned it’s more thank likely that my life would be heading in the direction of moving out from my childhood home and possibly starting a life with someone else. Honestly, I couldn’t be more confident in my decision to travel. I think now is the perfect time for me to get out of my comfort zone and live each day as it comes, it is such a big move and a decision that will change my life but a decision I am so happy I made. It has given me something to work towards in terms of saving money and having a goal (P.S. 15 weeks).
“If you can’t stop thinking about it, don’t stop working for it”
This one really resonated with me, because honestly not an hour goes by without me thinking about AUS and what i’m going to get up to there. It is such a motivator and is always pushing me to work hard to make sure I have the best experience there.
If you are thinking of booking a trip, have any trips coming up or are on a trip now, how do these quotes make you feel? I’m hoping to look back at these in a few months and see how my thoughts have developed and if have any of my opinions changed. Most importantly i’m excited to see what i’m up too!
I’ve been binge watching Ru Paul’s Drag Race recently and I’ve honestly fell in love with it so I will leave you with some words of wisdom from the Queen herself, Mamma Ru:
“If you can’t love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love someone else”
