Take chances today to create opportunities for tomorrow

“Doing it today so I won’t regret it tomorrow” – this is what the tagline of my blog has been since I started it over 2 years ago.  The thought behind this statement was “I better travel now because one day I’ll settle down and my chance will have passed”.

However, a lot has changed in my life during the past 2 years, and now that I reflect back on it, I think it is time to revise this statement.

Take chances today to create opportunities for tomorrow. 

Remember that you have nothing to lose and everything to gain by taking chances. Whether that be traveling to broaden your horizons; moving to start a new life; or working for free so you can get paid tomorrow.

Tay at Home

Yesterday I took a walk.

My intention was to walk a few blocks to stretch my legs, but it was bright out (yay Spring!), the weather was nice, and I could literally feel a weight being lifted off my shoulders; so, I decided to continue walking.

I then realized that it had been so long since I had just taken a walk without a purpose, so long since I had enjoyed a solitary moment with myself.

I remember walking the streets of Dublin, Paris, Madrid, Seville, Cadiz…

Post-travel Blues

If you’ve been reading my other blog, Tay at Home you would know that I have been suffering from the post-travel blues.

While training from Ottawa to Toronto this afternoon, I decided to spend my time reading some of my favourite travel blogs. I just happened to stumble upon a few good stories/articles about my little predicament.

So, in case you are also suffering from the same feeling, take a read!

This Lonely Planet article was especially awesome.

Also, this post had me nodding in agreement.

For all the non-travelers out there: Yes, we know our life is awesome. Yes, we know that we’re lucky. But, for those of us who come home after an extended trip, we know the difficulties associated with that. It’s all the same…but different.
