The past is remembered. Live in the moment. The future is in you.
-Mike Caceres, who is a blogger, hiker, and traveler
I learned a lot. I did not whine and complain in my travel life. I lived the lifestyle. I mostly stayed in hostels, and family homes. (I am not rich. I live simple.)
It taught me the true meaning of life. Traveling changed my life.
I am now a compassionate and empathic person. (I would not run away from an argument. We are human. We have feelings. I am concerned to hear your side of the story.)
Negativity does not fully take control of my mind anymore. I was too harsh in life. I took things too seriously. My mind used to be full of "worst-case scenarios." (It has never happened. So, why go on thinking about it anyway?)
My overthinking has cooled off. (Overthinking wastes my time and energy.)
I was able to meet people from around the world in one destination. For instance, I met interesting people at a hostel in Shanghai. They were from Belgium, Germany, Canada, UK, and other places. (We come in full circle.) Little did we know, we met unexpectedly. That is amazing.
Challenging myself to be uncomfortable.
I am more patient. (No rush in traveling. I have no fear of missing out.)
No more hatred. No more enemies.
I used to hate it when people would copy, follow, or beat me. (I had a huge ego, and a sense of pride. Now, I feel very thankful if you copy, follow, or beat me.)
I am for the act of forgiveness. (If I had superpowers, I want the power of forgiveness. I bless your forehand. You are now forgiven.)
I am at peace now. I have a cleaner heart now.
That solo travel life. Thank you.
