One of my favourite quotes:
”It’s okay to want things other people have; it is quite natural and we should want good things for ourselves. But we should NOT fool ourselves into thinking that other people have picture-perfect lives.
Everyone struggles, everyone hurts, and everyone is enduring something that they probably won’t tell you about. Whatever picture people paint their life as, rest assured that any one life in all its parts is beautiful and dark, hopeful and weary, a blessing and an everyday battle.
Focus on the good parts of your life and be GRATEFUL for your own set of problems because if you knew what everyone else was going through, you would probably still choose your own life.
Don’t compare yourself to anyone and while we’re at it, let’s be a little KINDER to each other along the way.”
I am writing this blog to try and sum up some of the most wonderful memories of my trips, which I am delighted to share with the readers. Traveling has taught me the meaning of life, it has shown me the diverse and real side of us humans. Travelling has broadened my mind and my horizons, my way of thinking. It has made more appreciative of the blessings of my life, and how fortunate I am to live these experiences.
I encourage everyone to follow their dreams, you only live once, but well lived one life is enough. Cherish people, cherish life, feel no envy, be thankful to be alive today and cherish all around you, and I promise you, my friend, you will find happiness in your everyday life. Life is now, do not wait until tomorrow, and while at it, smile and enjoy the ride.
Dedicated to my beloved son, my family and all the truly fantastic people I have met in my adventures.
