It took me years to finally make the following assertion: Traveling is not only just a part of my life, it is my life.
All I am now and all I know are thanks to traveling. But as the song says, it's been no bed of roses. I had to give up on great aspects of my life and had to say goodbye to many things. And people. I had to trust this gut feeling that what I truly wanted was yet to come. I had to ignore the fear that comes along with this lifestyle and embrace the reality that, no matter what, I'm still gonna pack my suitcase and get into that next plane, hopefully on time. Although it may sound like a cliché, I had to find myself. I stopped being a people pleaser anymore because, to be honest, I kinda sucked at doing it anyway. Now I don't have time to pretend to be someone I am not. I'm simply living the life I want, the way I want to.
Now all my energy is dedicated to learning. I learn and learn and learn every day so this way I make sure that both my family and my clients are getting just the best of me.
I think that Mahatma Gandhi was right by saying that you have to lose yourself first in order to find out who you truly are.
