Back in April of this year I decided to leave my job of six years to embark on a dream of extended travel. This has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made for myself, but it was one that did not come easily. That’s putting it mildly. It’s actually a decision that only came after excruciating battles with myself and my fears. For those who may be facing their own internal struggles with dreams that seem to great here’s how I overcame the war with myself to follow my heart.
The dream of setting off for a few months to see the world is one that became pervasive in my life over the past few years, but it’s actually been a lifetime in the making. I’ve always had a deep curiosity about the world and an intense desire to see it for myself.
