Staying in a comfortable residence and having an active lifestyle in your place, probably in Vermosa, you might think that you are already settled. You already have what you think you need and want. But think again, maybe there is something that is some sort of “hunting you.” Not to creep you out – perhaps it is traveling.
Most, if not all people love to roam around, discover new things, meet new people and familiarize themselves with different cultures. But have you ever wondered if there are some notes that will help to tell you if you should try to travel?
Well let’s see if these seven signs that we got here is something you should think about:
You have been overworking
The metro life can take so much toll in our life. We have been very preoccupied with work or other commitments so much so that we almost forget that we have lives outside our offices. In reality, we do not need to confine ourselves within the four corners of wherever we may be.
We are not saying that work is not essential, it’s just that we have to balance things out. We work to live, and not live to work.
You need a break
Continually being drained with your different affiliations and commitments, we have to recharge and take a break. Traveling is an excellent way to have a break from our daily routines. With all the hassle and bustle that we are going through, seeing new places and enjoying the company of friends and relatives are such a blessing.
You need to travel when you have been craving for rest. You don’t have to stop whatever you are doing (i.e. resign, but if you feel that you need to maybe you should), you just need to pause for a while.
You believe there’s so much you can discover
Traveling is an excellent way to wander and discover new things. We often feel like we are restrained to go out of the box. But one thing all of us should remember: there’s so much in life that waits for us to be discovered. Beginning from the places we don’t know, animals that are unfamiliar to us, the cultures and peoples – we have this one life to explore and get to know them. It is up to us if we will take that opportunity.
You think you have been missing so many things
Have you ever felt that there is a void or space in your heart, or at least in your head? For some reason you just feel incomplete, you think that you have been missing so many things. There is that unexplainable thought that makes you think you are overlooking essential matters in life. In that case, it is a cue for you to start your journey and travel.
It is not that travel will answer all the questions in your head as it may be leaving you with more queries and wonders. But maybe that’s what life is all about – having and getting more and more questions that would eventually lead us to where we ought to be.
You crave for adventure
Life may get rough and boring at some point, and you feel that you are trapped or barely moving. Literally, maybe you just need to travel and set off your foot on some adventures. As previously and repeatedly mentioned, our world has so much to offer for us. We are living in a small town, in a simple country, in a big world. We are practically a speck of dust in this universe.
We only live once, and I believe you don’t want to die without any story worth telling to your future kids or grandkids, right? We all want something to share with this world, or maybe just for ourselves to remember.
You have been eyeing a specific destination
If you have been planning to go to a certain place – beach, tourist destination or attraction, museum or whatnot – you just have to go and travel! Don’t let your plans to be left with plans. You don’t have to wait for the “perfect” time as you are the only one to make a moment “perfect.” Like what is stated in an old saying, a journey of a thousand steps begin with one step.
You don’t need to wait for a miracle to travel. You just need to plan things well and hope that everything will go in your favor.
Lastly and to sum it up, you want to move on – as you need to. Cheesy as it may sound, people are often motivated to travel when they feel that they need and want to move on – from stress, memories, and heartbreaks. Maybe because seeing and trying new things help us divert our attention and energy to more worthwhile stuff.
Whatever you may be going through right now, one of which is probably a good reason for you to move around and travel. You just need some time to plan and save money to finance your trip. But at the end of the day, the things you spend for that are immaterial are few of the most memorable ones.
