Once the travel bug bites you, you just can't get enough of traveling. It doesn't matter where you go, you just have to go, to explore new horizons, to have new experiences, to conquer your fears, to breathe, to live. When in doubt travel!

Jump! Fly! Break free! Be independent! Don't just taste it make freedom the motto of your existence. When I say freedom I don't just mean being physically free but mentally and emotionally too. Free yourself from the negative people, society's stigmas, mental constraints, the things n people that break you or kill you emotionally let them go. Shut the voices of. You want to scream, do it, you wanna cry, shed those tears away, cry till there are no tears left. After all what doesn't kill you can only make you stronger. Be reborn, emerge from the ashes like a Phoenix and spread your wings and fly high, so high as to touch the sky, sky of your dreams.

They say water is just like the mirror, it shows your shadow, your reflection, the true you. A mirror never lies. If you look at it carefully, you'll be able to look into your own soul. Your true self. Your love/ hatred, your ambitions, your dreams, your goals, your fears, the inhibitions. It shows you who you are. You can lie to others but you can't lie to yourself. Everyday is a battle. A battle with my inner fears, however illogical they are. Everyday I fight so that one day the person who looks back at me from the mirror is a fearless person who survived against all odds.

Travel. Travel as much as you can, as far as you can. Travel, not to run away from your problems, but to get to know yourself. Travel, not just to visit a place but to explore it. Travel, not just for change of view, but to change your view. Travel, not in search of someone, but to look within your own soul. Travel, not for just the destination, but the journey. Make every journey an experience of a lifetime. After all life itself is a journey. The final destination is the same for all. It's the journey that makes all the difference in the world. Its what makes you unique! Your journey not only makes you you, but defines who you are!

It's totally OK you know, to feel utterly and completely lost in life. You don't know whether you're doing the right thing, you don't know if things are working out or not. You just can't seem to put a finger on what is it that's not right. You are just so ..... Lost.. It's OK! You are lost because you care. You’re lost because you’re passionate. You’re lost because you know that there is more inside of you than what you’re currently offering the world and that is a brilliant thing to know. You know that there’s a bigger, better version of yourself to bring to life. You just haven’t gotten there yet. But you'll get there. You'll figure it out. We all do. Till then make most of being lost.

The fact that you are lost right now tells you something. It tells you that your life as it has been is not your life as it will be. It tells you that you’re not the kind of person who settles for okay or sort of good enough. The fact that you are lost tells you that you would rather be living in the middle of uncertainty than dead-set on something that makes you consistently miserable. And I’m not sure if you realize how rare that really is. How few people still give a shit about doing something meaningful with their lives. How many more people we need – lost and reeling, yet still pushing themselves to do better.

There will be other parts too. with the same title followed by part number.

Thank you for reading!!With lots of love!!

Till next time.
