"To get something you've never had, you've got to do something you've never done."

Honestly, this quote inspires me a lot and it also boosts my motivation. Why? Because it's true. And sometimes you just have to be reminded that you have to step out of your comfort zone from time to time.

I mean, of course I know the future is scary and seems intimidating, but should that really be the reason to stop you from doing what you love? I don't think so.

My plans for the future include moving abroad. That's scary. Really really scary. But is that going to stop me from trying to get there eventually? No. Why? Because I know I'm not alone. My best friend - who lives in a different country - wants to move to the same city as me, so why not do that together when we're ready? It'd mean that I wouldn't be alone. It makes the whole thing less scary, because i'd already know someone there that I can trust and talk to if I needed help.

My best friend - fun fact: Her name is Steph and my name is Steff, how cool is that? Same name, different spelling! - she inspires me so much. She's hardworking, incredibly nice, always tries to make the best out of every situation. And she motivates me, too. She makes me want to push through those bad days and also makes me want to push myself to become a better person. I hope that I'm having the same effect on her and that i can help her as much as possible.

Moving abroad seems so scary. Especially, because English isn't my first language and moving to a country where English is the first language, seems a little intimidating to me. But that's something I'll have to get used to. Or that my family would be on the other side of the earth, if i moved away. That might be a struggle, I mean, I grew up with a big family, so just being alone or just with one other person, also will be something i'd have to get used to.

Something you always have to remind yourself of is: Everything is going to be fine. Everything will work out in the end. Even if it doesn't seem like it at the moment, just trust me, you'll be fine
