One World 365 uses imagery to provide great insights about the benefits of travel through working, volunteering, and vacationing abroad. Below I captured some of my favorite quotes and images about travel that I have recently found.

Do you feel intimidated to visit a new place or to plan a trip on your own? La Bioguia reminds us to believe in ourselves!

"The good luck that enables us to succeed in live is called believing in yourself."

As I said in my Why Travel?, Why Travel? Part Two, and Why Travel? Part Three posts, each of these quotes makes the wanderlust in me grow stronger. Don’t hold back- go on another adventure and be inspirNational!

InspirNational Quotes II

Standard

How often do we actually spend time reading our e-mails? I have to admit that given the number of advertisements I receive via e-mail, it’s easy to just skim or quickly skip through my e-mails. For some reason, this morning, I decided to read the following e-mail from Susie Frazier, an artist in Cleveland, who got me to pause and reflect today. I wanted to share her wisdom with you:

“How would you feel inside if you knew you could not fail? Say the decision maker that mattered most was already on board with your idea. Would you be assertive to present your dreams? Cool-headed when faced with obstacles? Or more forgiving of yourself when you trip up? It’s true the uncertainty of any outcome has been known to strangle my imagination (and my outlook) at times, despite being a professional imaginer.

But not today.

Today, I opened a door that I previously closed and marched myself right to the edge. I jumped at the chance to try something bold, something risky, with no hesitation and no fear of making the wrong move. All I felt was a gut rattling conviction to trust my instincts. And it was amazing.

Happiness doesn’t magically burst onto the scene because we’re committed to a certain end game. It blooms quietly within when we experience unwavering confidence in ourselves. But first, we must believe.

I am grateful for artists like Susie Frazier who think outside the box, challenge conventional thinking, and push us to be the best versions of ourselves. I feel inspired to believe in myself, trust uncertainty, feel confident, and bloom in happiness.
