Sometimes people ask me how I’ve traveled so much.
Or started two successful businesses.
Or learned professional photography.
Or starting public speaking.
I just did it.
One foot in front of the other.
I wasn’t less scared.
I wasn’t more ready or more talented.
I didn’t have the money.
Or the right connections.
I just trust in my future self.
And expect a lot from this one crazy life I am blessed to have.
I have a deep belief that life is meant to be explored.
That years should not look the same.
They should not all bleed together.
I know that no matter what, future me can handle it.
I stopped giving attention to the voices of fear and doubt that we all have.
I told myself that little feeling was just excitement and it meant I was doing something right.
I say “yes” to the soft tugs of my heart.
I click “buy” and I board the plane.
Or I click the youtube video and learn to make a website.
Or I click the camera and take 10,000 terrible photos until I start really seeing light and angles and shadows in a whole new way.
I trust that the unknown has beautiful surprises waiting for me if only I have the courage to go.
I expect to live a life story that is fun for me. So I do.
I expect to push myself and learn and grow. So I do.
I expect to fail a lot (which gives me permission to try new things). So I do.
I expect myself to persist.
So when I’m feeling lazy, I do it anyway.
You come to find, what you expect.
That is exactly what you will get.
