1st anniversary of A Wanderlust Love
Today is a big day for me, my 1st anniversary as a travel blogger and digital nomad: 1 year of “A Wanderlust Love” I remember like it was yesterday when I board on that flight to Habana, the beginning of a new exciting experience. I was both scared and thrilled, what was going to happen to me, to my life?
Today, after one year I can tell you what has happened: joy! I met amazing people through my journey who have, each on their kind, marked my life, people I will always store in my heart. I learned new culture and belief, and how to treasure from them. I learn how to respect diversity, and understand that diversity is life, is us! I danced.. lol I danced a lot! I cried, I got stitched on my head, I was in pain and I was scared sometimes.. but all worth it the experience as afterward, I was a better woman.
If you ask me: would you come back and perhaps don’t ditch your old life, your good corporate job. I would say: Yes I would do it again, and again!
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t know what it will happen tomorrow of my life, and I am glad for this. I was tired of know everything.. what it will happen tomorrow and the day after tomorrow. I love this unknown feeling. Because every day is a new day, and I can’t give it per granted anymore.
Who knows, perhaps I will be moving to Africa soon, doing some volunteering, or perhaps I will be on a road trip through American states or taking care of my dog back home in Sicily, or who knows back my 2nd hometown London .. I don’t know.. and it is right this way!
What I know, is that on the 24th June 2017 I have decided to be happy and to make things in my life for a purpose and not because society says so. Have a child? Yes, maybe yes, maybe not..definitely if and when it will happen it will be for my own will… not only because I have a uterus to fill being a woman.. and I could carry on with million example..but I want to take it easy 🙂
I have already told other times, that my goal with my blog and my posts are not to tell people what to do, how to make money online, how to forever travel the world only for the sake of it.. so to fulfill their passport.. no!
Mine is supposed to be an influence on how to better believe ourselves, on how to listen to our heart and don’t be scared of changes. We are human being, and we are dynamic, we change with time, and we can’t forget this. Today we are someone, and tomorrow we might change our taste, nothing wrong with that, as long as we can listen to ourselves and ethically follow our desires.
Sometimes I hear people saying: well I think is too late for me to make a change, why I should quit my job at the age of 50..How I will pay the rest of my mortgage, I won’t find anything .. True, I understand this fear and respect that, but this fear is only a feeling. Society is changing and we are all keen to accept change at all time.. is never too late to make a change in our life. It is OUR life.. and the best we can do is to accept the reality of fact.. there is no a cliche in life to follow a draw.. life come as it is and we must follow the flow of it.
People, don’t be afraid of change, whatever it can be: job, habits, partner, city..do what makes you feel relieved and happy at the moment.. we are done to make changes, we are born for that.
Said this, I would like to use my 1st year anniversary as an opportunity to thanks all the amazing people I’ve met in these past 12 months, and send to some of them a little tribute showing our best moment in a picture..with the hope to meet them in future..
This is traveling, my fellow friends..travel gather people around the world, with no race or color or religion difference.. just one love!
