I like to live by two rules: “You’ll never know if you never go” and “No regrets”.
You’ll never know if you never go is probably the single reason why I enjoy new experiences, travel to an unknown destination and love to explore new horizons. When driving down a road, I am always the first to want to drive down the road less explored. My motto of course is that I’ll never know whether it was worth the drive unless I actually check it out.
While I’ve had some very rewarding discoveries along the way, there have been some really awful – waste of time - experiences too. But how could I possibly regret these experiences when my curiosity was at its peak and without knowing what I was to expect, I would always have wondered what I was missing out on.
New experiences are always great, but there comes a time when one has to shed the past and move on. I do this well; I’ve been doing it all my life.
In the past, I’ve learnt a lot from new experiences and even a bad experience has been a good learning curve.
So don’t be afraid to get out there and shed some of your old habits. Change your vacation from the usual one to one that is totally deviant and something that may be well out of your comfort zone. We have nothing to lose but everything to gain!
