The Traveler Who Lacks Courage

Today I wanted to talk you about something that has been on my mind recently.

Courage.

To be specific courage to travel. Now you may think how can the starting travel blogger be struggling with something so simple. Well any problem isn’t small if it prevents you from doing what you want.

So courage to travel. For me it’s something I radically lack. I have already given up with going to university right now (or to be clearer maybe that plan never was so important for me…) I know traveling is the next step for me to do.

BUT…

Yes, there is the big but named courage.

One personality trait I would give away right now is worrying. What if I fail? what will I do if I run out of money? I’m probably not going to find a job. Everything will go badly and it will not be what I wanted from my life. What if I try to make this writing thing a life and don’t succeed? There is no other way for me to live

And so I stare my plans and don’t know what to do. I loaned Australia books from library but can’t open them. I check airline tickets to South Korea at least three times a day (on incognito browser because I know too much about traveling cheap). I have everything planned out: volunteering three months in Korea, going to working holiday in Australia and after that maybe living the life where I just keep traveling.

Only thing I don’t have it the courage to make my plans true. I haven’t shared them with anyone before this. I feel like telling someone means they will laugh at me and make my dreams nightmares.

Last time I bought the tickets without telling anyone and left before they even realized. This time I’m going to find my strength. Today I am going to tell my plan for my parents, friends and for my scared soul. It’s time to make my life my own.

 

With courage and love,

  1. I can definitely relate. All I find are excuses but I do also lack the courage to drop everything and go. I think of the financial implications as well as other factors such as job security. I believe experience is valued more than materialistic things, so I am going to travel soon but not leave it too late. Good luck!
