Travel Inspiration: Spring 2022

inspirational travel quote: life begins at the end of your comfort zone

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” – Neale Donald Walsh

Spring is the perfect time to grow and re-invent yourself, and this month’s travel inspiration is a good reminder to step outside of your comfort zone so you can grow, change and discover who you really are.

Embrace the unknown

For most of us, taking the path of least resistance in life is the easiest choice. There are enough challenges in our everyday lives already, so why would we intentionally bring more on ourselves than necessary? Stepping out of your comfort zone means getting uncomfortable. That could mean doing something you’ve never done before like flying by yourself, trying a new food, talking to a stranger, or eating at a restaurant alone. These things are scary for many, and they used to be scary and uncomfortable for me too. The natural instinct for most of us would be to simply avoid putting ourselves in those situations, yet by doing this we are doing a disservice to ourselves.

Step out of your comfort zone

A healthy dose of fear of the unknown is normal, but putting yourself in uncomfortable situations is the only way to discover who you really are. If we never allow ourselves to experience adversity how do we know how we’d respond to it, or thrive in the face of it? Staying home or in the environment you grew up in may be the safest and most predictable path, but if you never give yourself that chance to break free from the life you’ve always known, how will you ever know who you could have become, and what great things you could have accomplished by taking that chance?

Through travel, you allow yourself the opportunity to look yourself in the mirror, and find out who you were meant to be. The person we discover out there in the world is usually much different than we anticipated, and often the best version of ourselves. Our life begins when we find this version of ourselves,

I hope this monthly travel inspiration encourages you to step out of your comfort zone and travel the world. Have any favorite travel quotes? Share them in the comments below.
