Every time I travel I feel as though I’m a slightly different, and better, person when I return home. Being that I am lucky enough to be able to expose myself to a multitude of new experiences these trips help to ground me in the pursuits I am currently involved in. Not only that but they also help open my eyes to new ventures that I might like to pursue in the future.


That last part is what seems to tick people off the most and is something that I still do not understand. Recently, after having returned from a several month long trip I was told that I came back “different”. It’s when these statements are made in a negative light that really gets to me.



If someone is going after something they love with full force then don’t be that person that constantly reminds them that they aren’t the same. They already know. They already know because that was the goal.


Either help with the process or get out of the way.
