This was actually a quote provided by Word Swag which is an app I use for tagging my photos or if I want to put text in an image. I love the font options and they also provide quotes.
This is one saying/quote I remember hearing in high school and it really struck me. I get that moving around isn’t everyone’s cup of coffee but it’s mine. I get that traveling isn’t everyone’s desire, but it’s mine and it always has been.
I never believed in staying in one place forever. Even as a child I dreamed of all the states I could move to and all the countries and cultures I could see and experience.
A lot of things didn’t happen. Some things took years to happen. And with this pandemic my soul just aches in a way I can’t explain; I miss getting on a plane. I miss experiencing new places and new things. And now it seems like all of that is lost.
So this week I want to remind myself that it isn’t lost, it’s just going to take some time. In the meantime, focus on here and now. On rebuilding your passions and teaching Tums to find hers. I’m also going to remind myself that traveling will be much more fun once she can walk on her own (and less tiring on me)!
I also want to remind myself that just because here isn’t where you want to be doesn’t mean you can’t look for new adventures. Wasn’t I the one who said adventure can be found anywhere?
I need to remind myself that it’s ok if things feel hard; but it’s not ok to stay there. At some point you gotta get up and find something to look forward to.
What is a thought or saying you’d like to remind yourself this week?

I’m similar to you. I have always dreamed of all the places I could go growing up!
Lovely post, thanks for sharing 💖
My husband thinks it’s crazy but literally all me and my friends are the same way lol. I couldn’t imagine not wanting to see the world!
This post is beautiful. I’d never heard of that quote in that before, but think it’s so well worded. Not even just in a travel context but also if you interpret it in terms of self growth. Thanks for sharing.
That’s such a good way to look at it! And I agree, I absolutely love this quote! It’s a great reminder.
This is a great quote! It’s always good to have an inspiring quote to remind yourself of certain ideas during the week 🙂
The quote kind of made me ponder for a minute. 🙁 It somehow applies to my career and I’m just waiting for the right timing to finally “fly” and be successful. Thanks for this x
