Life Traveler, Touring the Earth
The other day I was looking at how many places I still haven't been to, on this planet. I was feeling concerned that maybe my traveling days were over due to this crazy Covid thing. Then I started looking at how many places I had been and how some people may look at me in envy, as I look at others in envy, for what they've achieved on this traveling arena.
There's two things I came to realize... one, I'm quite "lucky" in what I've achieved so far in terms of where I've been. I say "lucky" because it's not luck. I've worked my butt off and I've sacrificed things that others aren't willing to sacrifice to achieve what I've achieved. Sometimes, ok let's be honest, a lot of times, I don't give myself the credit I deserve. As you know Jo, I've been traveling since I was eight years old. I've always managed to get what I want even though we didn't have have money when I was a kid. 🤗

I've overcome poverty, fear of flying, fear of dying, broken hearts, and so much more as I've traveled the world and just made it go right. I guess it comes down to what you want bad enough. ✈
It's not that they can't, it's that they don't or won't. When I want something, I figure out a way to get it. You just have to have determination and fierce intention to get it. I'm also resourceful. Most of the time I figure out how to achieve things in a way that's "out of the box." When people have said to me, "oh must be nice to do that" I offer up my resources, ideas and suggestions to them. I even offer to help. For some weird reason, they don't go after it. 🤷
That's why I work with those who are willing and ready for the next level. I know they believe they can have it and they just don't know how to go about it. The faith is there. I guess I'll keep traveling and writing and doing what I love as I look for those people along my path. 🕵️♀️
