How many quotes have you read, and you were like damn that’s my life?
These travel quotes triggered me to think deeply about life.
Mostly about regrets.
How many regrets are you carrying with you?
You know, no matter how much I make amends, I have them too. But what I’ve learned about regrets over my lifetime is to have less of them.And of course, I wished I traveled sooner, and there were moments as a single mom, I could’ve taken my son abroad––but I didn’t. Well, I’ve crossed paths with single mothers, and parents traveling the globe with their children (of all ages) quite often so it no longer seems far-fetched. Believe it or not, it’s possible to live this life when you remove limiting beliefs.
Travel will consistently remind you how beautiful the world is but most importantly; it’ll change you in a number of ways. Usually, without permission––whether you like it or not because it’s often subliminal. Because travel will do wonders for your soul. It’s the butterflies in your tummy because infatuation entangles you. It’s like the sun rising, announcing a new day.
By the way, traveling will heal you.
It reignites emotions inside of you that might have laid dormant. You see, it’s like becoming kinky again with your partner like before you were both overworked, before the kids, and before life’s responsibilities. So, I hope these travel quotes do for you what they’ve done for me.
