4 Lessons Travelling The World Taught Me

#2 — It’s OK To Feel Bad

Me in Germany, 2017

#1— We Are Not Alone (Even If It Feels So At Times)

#2 — It’s OK To Feel Bad

#3— Beauty Is Out There For You to Discover

“To me, the world is not like the movies. They aren’t real, they don’t exist. But you do, and this life is better than any movie there is. Movies are supposed to provoke something, make you feel something. But I have a better idea, go out into the world and actually feel it.”

Take time to deliberate; but when the time for action arrives, stop thinking and go in.

#4 — You Can Only Connect The Dots Looking Back

“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”

Things will get better. If you keep trying, keep improving, learning from your mistakes, you will inevitably get to a better spot, but you need to give it time.

“When you find your path, you must not be afraid. You need to have sufficient courage to make mistakes. Disappointment, defeat, and despair are the tools God uses to show us the way.”
