TRAVEL!! Mon, Aug 26, 2019
The last few years, I have majorly been in the mood for traveling. Growing up, my family and I went to some awesome places in and around California, Hawaii, Nevada, and Utah. We had a blast as kids, and that's actually a ton of awesome places, but I promised myself I'd try to make it a goal to see some regions outside of the Western U.S., and so during the last few years, Michelle and I did exactly that! These photos below are from a trip we took to South Africa:
Here is the problem with traveling though: it takes TONS OF TIME to plan it out. Don't do last minute traveling. Sit down and treat it like a hobby. Look at your life in the next 12 months. You know yourself better than anybody else -- when are you going to need a nice break during those next 12 months? Map it out, plan something small, or plan something big. Make the emails and phone calls, to get it planned out. And BAM! suddenly you have something fun on the calendar 6 months from now, and after the initial planning you don't even have to think much about it. Give it a shot! Way worth it.
BONUS POINTS: use that same strategy for also doing things that you don't really wanna do, but know you should do. Once it is on the calendar, your brain will be like: "welp, it's in stone, I gotta go do it!" Cool right? Now go trick that brain!
