It's been almost half a year since I started my travel blog. It's been almost half a year since a particularly memorable experience at work, followed by a long conversation with my best friend and much needed thinking by myself, gave me the push I needed: I finally admitted to myself that the only reason why I was dreaming instead of planning, was because it’s comfortable. And safe. And easy.

But, being comfortable is not the be-all and end-all. There is an entire world out there I want to experience. I want to feel happy and frustrated, warm and cold, scared and giddy with excitement. I want to feel utterly lost. I want to find myself. I want to experience everything this life has to offer.

I want to feel alive.

Back in March, I made the decision to change my life. I gave myself 12 months to figure everything out - from coming to terms with not having a reliable income or roof over my head to canceling contracts and getting rid of 99% of what I own. I also decided to start my blog and website as a safe space where I can write about my thoughts, my hopes, my fears--and every emotion in between.
Last month, the team at MyTrendingStories.com contacted me and offered me to become a contributing author on their site. I am so excited and thankful to be given this opportunity as it allows me to now also share my stories with you here alongside amazing writers.

Going forward, I will post here and on my blog, so be sure to follow me here on MTS.com and check out my blog at PS: I’m leaving!

PS: I have no idea how I'm supposed to keep up with the number of posts the other writers here put out - my life is not that exciting!? I think I need to take a nap to calm down.
