Was I afraid? Absolutely. I created a thousand scenarios in my head of everything that could possibly go wrong. I hadn’t flown anywhere in two and a half years. I battle anxiety as it is. One of my four planes could crash, and I could die. But what if I flew?
I chose to go anyway. To do it afraid. To let my ruling choice be my spirit of adventure, not a spirit of fear.
Was it expensive? Yes. But…
Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.
So I flew. And came back wealthy.
A ship in harbor is safe, but that’s not what ships are for.
You do not travel if you are afraid of the unknown. You travel for the unknown, that reveals you within yourself. ~Ella Maillart
Blessed are the curious, for they shall have adventures.
