Change of Perspective:
They say traveling broadens your visions and opens up your mind. I agree with that. Traveling changed my perspective towards a lot of things including life, people, friendships and myself. I started looking at life from a different angle and with more colorful eyes. Things that use to matter a lot for me suddenly felt less important. Matters I use to consider as problems were no more like 'problems' for me or at least did not feel with the same intensity. It made me understand that be open towards life and accept change.
Pushing Your Limits:
We all know this term. I believe traveling actually makes you experience this term in real. All my adventure travels practically made and still makes me experience this especially on treks when I feel like giving up but I also know I don't have a choice & got to keep on moving.
It always unleashes the strengths I have in me and makes me realize how strong I am, my will power can make me achieve whatever I want.
Adjustment, Patience & Tolerance:
We usually come across situations while traveling when things don't happen as per our plans or desires. At times unforeseen events takes place & the only choice you have is to stay patient & go with the flow. Traveling helped me in becoming more patient and tolerant towards things that use to make me lose my temper quickly. I learnt how to adjust in situations when they are going against your nature and temperament. It also made me tolerant towards other people's habits & moods. All these practices now help me with my daily interactions with other people and matters of life.
To Be Yourself:
When we are traveling, we usually break free chains that confines us within. We feel free like a bird who just sneaked out of the cage. I feel the same whenever I am traveling. In my daily life also, I usually don't give much importance to what people will think or about judgements. I stay pretty much who I am, but somewhere in the back of my mind I do get conscious on few things. But when I am traveling, I feel super free and happy. I feel more confident, carefree, excited and lively. Yes, I jump, dance, laugh, swirl, play, run, sway like nobody is watching me. The best feeling in the world is to be Yourself and break barriers that holds you from experiencing life to the fullest and traveling teaches you that very well.
