In this episode I got really excited and answered all the questions Carly asked. The first question I answered was…
What do you feel is the most powerful way to form lasting connections to the people you may meet for a short amount of time travelling?
It then lead me into answering the next question which was…
How do you make sure when you’re travelling that you keep yourself open to all types of experiences, even when you have those moments of self doubt or feeling down?
Before answering her last question I go to introduce my perfect stranger. I give some cool tips for Portugal and talk a little about an after partythat we went to after a festival that followed a surfing comp in the West Coast of Australia.
I finish off by answering her last question where I get to share with you more about my passion and purpose in life.
I once again find myself in a quarter life crisis (yes, a term I coined myself). I guess when you are in your everyday life, going on about your day its rare for you to take a moment to stop and ask yourself, “what is my passion?” I invite you to take a moment and do so now.
Above is a quote I stumbled upon in a cafe in Bulgaria, it bought a tear to my eye. It made me stop and acknowledge how amazing my life has been so far. I have been traveling for nearly 5 months all over Europe, and there have been a lot of long journeys through airports or via buses that allowed me to listen to some podcasts and reflect on life. I am constantly heartwarmed and disheartened by humans on Hack (news etc. back in Australia), I’m inspired and confronted by the amazing people being interviewed on How I built this with Guy RazandI have laughed, cried and got aroused with Guys we f****d. Thus eventually bringing me to think about the question I asked you all. What is my passion?
I just turned 24 years old, I have an undergrad in psychology, I’m a yoga teacher, I helped start the staffing side of a marketing company, I have traveled through countries like Honduras and Colombia on my own. I have visited 44 countries in my lifetime. But what now? I want to travel forever, yet have a career and a family and kids. How can I have it all? Is it even possible? Since my birthday 9 days ago I have again began questioning my purpose/passion in life and just questioning life in general. What is next? Do you ever wonder this? I guess 24 is the age on uncertainty, right? Some of our parents already had us at that age, mine sure did. Do you feel like you have a balanced life or do you feel like you constantly have to give something up? I would love to hear from you to see that I am not alone or maybe just crazy…
Lastly, I stumbled upon this incredible video yesterday that really resinated with me and I wanted to share it with you.
