No more excuses, stop telling yourself that you will wait until next year, or when the money’s right. Traveling is just like having a kid, you are never ready, so just do it already. The time is never right and that’s what this blog is about, just pulling the trigger. Book your travel at the end of this blog or it will self destruct in 5…4…3.. just kidding, or am I?
With the year just beginning, many will be thinking of vacations and trips around the world. They’ll be pondering exotic locations and amazing adventures. I don’t know about you but I love anything exotic… cars, animals, adventures or even foreplay. Make your vacation kinky, who cares, just do it.
And then abandoning those dreams as rapidly as they were thought up. Stop giving up on your dreams people! We are inly on this planet for one ride and some people’s rides are shorter than others, so you better get the most out of it. I live my life like Vin Diesel’s character in Fast and the Furious… “one quarter mile at a time.” Just kidding, I wish i lived like that, but alas I don’t but I do take any opportunity I can to make my life better. Travel is just an excuse to live your life and actually enjoy it for a brief moment.
Something will come up and plans will be put off until tomorrow as you wait for “the right time.” But, here is a secret: it will never be the right time to travel. You will always have some reason to stay at home. You always be able to find an excuse as to why today just isn’t the right day. But the idea that the stars will align and you’ll find the perfect day to step out of your door and into the world is a fantasy.
Today might not be the perfect day — but neither is tomorrow.
Tomorrow, there will still be bills to pay.
Tomorrow, there still won’t be enough money.
Tomorrow, there will still be someone’s wedding to attend or a birthday party to go to.
Tomorrow, there will still be planning to do.
Tomorrow, you still won’t know if you are making the right decision.
Tomorrow, you will still second-guess yourself.
Tomorrow, you’ll still find yourself putting off the preparation for one more day.
Tomorrow, you’ll find another excuse why you can’t go.
Tomorrow, people you know will still sow the seeds of doubt in your head.
Tomorrow, you’ll still worry about all the bad stuff that might happen to you.
Tomorrow, something else will come up.
Tomorrow will never be perfect.
When tomorrow does come, you’ll say to yourself, “Today isn’t the right day. Let’s try again tomorrow.”
But tomorrow will never come. Tomorrow will always be some vague day in the future.
And then one day you’ll find you’ve run out of tomorrows.
And you’ll be filled with nothing but sadness and regret.
So stop waiting.
Stop making excuses. Today is your day.
It’s never the right time to travel.
Forget about tomorrow.
It’s a new year.
And it’s full of possibility.
Take my advise or not, at least I know that I did take every opportunity and just went with it. Life your life like a Vin Diesel character and “I am Groot!” Wait, I think I got the quote wrong.
