His message resonates well with my current experience of facing yet another cross-road in my young life:
… being exposed to a wonderful world of abundant possibilities
… overwhelmed by the idea of making a simple choice
… anxious about possibly missing out on experiencing life to its full potential
But at the same time feeling inspired, hopeful and driven to create the life that I desire and so much more!

A brilliant article that people like us who live a global lifestyle can highly relate to. The timing of myself stumbling across this piece of writing is in perfect synchronicity, as I have just started to embark on a new journey of love with a wonderful woman. I love how the universe works its magic. I have been very patient and asked to find a woman that loves travelling and exploring the world like myself, a woman that is strong and confident, and knows what she wants in life. I was wondering if I ever meet someone who is able and willing to keep up with my nomadic lifestyle. I aspire to live a life without borders. To have someone to share my vision with and to build a life together was always a dream of mine. I have now been blessed with this possibility in my life and I am internally grateful, excited and inspired to move forward in partnership with a truly beautiful soul that understands.

Be with someone who travels. He will follow his heart and chase his dreams. He will come back bearing photos and stories and a gift that reminded him of you while he was traveling. He will inspire you to fearlessly embark on your own adventures. He will never be afraid of spontaneity and will almost always say yes when you suggest a road trip. He will tell you stories of his trips that will make you fall more and more in love with him every day. He will never make you feel guilty for wanting to explore the world, even if it means he gets left behind. He will understand that distance does make the heart grow fonder and a relationship stronger. He will never let your relationship fall into a routine and get stale. He will say yes when you ask him to move away with you. He…

Travel is transformational. It changes who you are to your very core. Out there on the road, without any baggage, you encounter life in a way that’s not always possible when you are working all the time. I know I’m biased since I write about travel but my experience meeting others has shown me that travel changes you for the better. It brings out the best version of you possible. Here are ten ways travel will better your life and why you should start planning your next trip away:
You become more social
It’s sink or swim on the road. You either get better at making friends or you end up alone. You learn to make friends out of strangers and get more comfortable approaching new people. You get better at the small talk. When I first started traveling, I was an introvert and uncomfortable talking to strangers. Now, I…

Nothing is so reckless as waiting for certainty—that’s a game we are sure to lose. Anyone who runs a business, chooses a mate, or just drives down the street knows there’s a risk. Stimulating those risks is inseparable from living. Our preferences can often tend toward comfort, familiarity, safety—but in opting for those, we often miss out, even to the point of giving up advancement, intimacy, adventure. Continue reading →
I would like to share this message I received from a friend of mine today. I think it is another good reminder how important it is to consistently evaluate what is really essential for us in our lives, and to focus on these things that are most important to us by living in the present moment, being aware of our actions and moving towards who we truly are and what we desire. Here we go.

So have a read below and judge for yourself if this is in any way relevant or possibly beneficial to your life :-):
THE SENSE OF BEING ALIVE
“You Are an Entrepreneur. Whether you work for someone else or are completely on your own, you are an entrepreneur. No one else will ever care about your own career and well-being as much as you, so you should take it seriously.
Personally, I’ve found that being self-employed is the best option for me. I can roam the world at will without being trapped in a cubicle. But my way isn’t the only way — some of our readers have negotiated unique work agreements with their boss, allowing them to follow a passion while still earning a living. Others have pursued location-independent careers around the world — with clients back at home.
The Biggest Obstacle Is Fear. If you want to start a business, you don’t need an MBA, venture capital, loans from friends, a 60-page business plan, or anything like that. Similarly, if you want to travel, you don’t need a guidebook or a year’s worth of planning – you can just buy a ticket and head out the door.
So what’s the problem? Far more than anything else, fear is the obstacle that holds us back. Instead of pretending to be fearless, learn to work with fear. It doesn’t usually go away, but you can avoid letting fear make decisions for you.
A friend of mine likes to say, “Failure is not nearly as glamorous as it looks,” and he’s right — it’s usually better to win than to lose. But it’s also true that you can recover from almost any mistake. If you try something and it doesn’t work out, move on to something else. We regret what we haven’t done much more than what we tried and failed at.”
Lastly, consider this quote from Joseph Campbell –
“People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. … I think what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive.”
