Would you like to energize your life? Could you benefit from a bit of excitement? When is the last time you went sightseeing or explored somewhere new? Traveling, taking in historic sites, discovering nature and even finding a local treasure is extremely exhilarating.
DavidMansaray.com offers some insight about how travel can help us grow. In his words, “Stepping into a new environment has a way a way of revealing things about yourself.
You may discover that you’re more shy, more confident, more open, more friendly or more cautious than you thought you were… Travel can help you unravel many false beliefs. Many go something like this: Americans are this, Spaniards are that, Italians are so…, Africans always…, French people are the most… etc.
It’s easy to accept someone-else’s opinion as you own without even realizing it. I find it helpful to ask myself why I believe what I believe, and If the belief hasn’t been formed by my own experience, I know I need clarification. Travel is always a good option…
I’ve realized that we all – to a certain degree – take things for granted. Some of the things include food, electricity, transport, heating and safety. Going to a country where these basics are not always available is a real eye opener.”
The wonder of discovery can gift thrills to jumpstart the most mundane routine and it can offer appreciation by surfacing a newfound value for your life. Once you push outside of your comfort zone and take in something new, the experience fuels the need to embrace exploration as a life practice.
