#28DayBlogChallenge Day 7 – Adventure!

Anxiety prevented me from doing a lot of things for a huge period of my life. One day, I had a word with myself, because I was missing out on so much and I only had myself to blame. I talked myself out of practically everything and missed out on a lot of life experience.

When I turned 25, I decided enough was enough, I only have one life and I wanted to look back and see that I put myself out there and made the most of my time. I’d been on holidays before, but I had never put myself out there.

I developed a “Screw it, just do it!” mentality. This lead me to meeting new people and seeing some beautiful places.

My first trip was to Paris. This was for my 25th Birthday. Not only did I get to see the beautiful city, I also participated in a half marathon. This set a solid memory for my milestone birthday. It was tough and something I’d never do again. I didn’t train at all and I incurred an injury, but at least I can say that I’ve done it and I have a medal and a T-shirt to show for it.

From this point the travel bug began. My heart led me to the other side of the world to Texas, I ended up living there on and off for 3 years and got to see some beautiful sights.

Texas:

Last year I found myself in Sweden, it is a beautiful country and I hope to spend a lot more time there.

Sweden:

 

You don’t always have to travel the far reaches of the world to find adventure. Just a drive away is this beautiful place:

 

I’m turning 30 in a couple of weeks and I feel like my adventure has just begun and I look forward to seeing where it’ll take me. Remember to always stay safe when you are on you journeys and in the words of Sierra – Always Seek Adventure!

  1. Thank you for putting this in words. So often, when one is suffering from Anxiety and/ or depression, it is easy to think you are the only one going through this. Plagued with crippling anxiety attacks I became a virtual recluse, only venturing outside when it was absolutely essential. I just wish I had the realisation that I needed to take control of my life far sooner. I hope you continue to enjoy your rebirth.

  2. Lovely shots and post in general✨ anxiety has prevented me from doing so much as well and I’m so ready to start living life to the fullest. I can’t wait to start traveling and looking back on adventures. I’ll be turning 23 very soon, so not much younger than you were. The time is now to stop talking myself out of things. screw anxiety

  3. I can’t speak for the anxiety necessarily, but I find that adventuring in whatever sense of the word has always helped me a lot with depression. Doing something scary, particularly when it involves travel, can remind us of just how brave we are inside. The world is full of beauty, and you’re right, it’s never too late. Thanks for reminding me of this.

  5. I stepped out of my comfort zone and traveled to London by myself a year ago- It was my first time traveling over seas and I felt so empowered. It really helped me clear my head and I know now that I can do it again alone if I have to or want to.

  6. “Travel is never a matter of money, but of courage.” – Paulo Coelho Love that you’re going out and exploring new things! I booked a one way ticket to India one day as my first trip and never looked back.
