Day 14 – What did you learn from traveling abroad?
The most eye-opening lesson that I have obtained through my travels is that there is no one linear path of living life. Growing up thinking the only way to success was doing well in school to go to a good college to get a great job to meet a handsome husband and have adorable children, this was a bit of a shock. In school I had learned about different places and their different cultures, but I don’t think it ever occured to me that the two could transpose. I never thought that I would move away from California. I never thought that I would graduate from college without a secure and set career path in mind. And thank goodness for traveling opening my eyes, because I am so not ready to have a secure anything set in place. Learning that there is no one way to living your life was a game-changer. Nobody is living it the right way… because there is no right way! Living life accordingly with a blank slate definitely allows you to reassess your life and do what makes you happy.
I always knew tabula rasa had it going on.
