Sometimes it feels like you are stuck between space and time and nothing is moving, and you try to find a way out of it, this is the time when you become vulnerable, your all the weaknesses you conquered through experiences of life ,start coming on the surface and you loose control. You over think and make yourself sick. For me the best way to get rid of it is travelling. Travelling refuels us and makes us realize that life is not about mourning on one situation, emotion or failure, it makes us strong as an independent person and we can choose what makes us happy and discard what is bothering unnecessarily. It makes me pacifist. It makes me realize that life is a journey and good or bad everything is an experience, one day everything will be left behind. Have your pie of life as much as you can. when you travel you see the diversity in fashion , culture, tradition with different dialect and various ways of Living. it gives you sense that saying a particular way of living is perfect showcase of narrow thinking ,everything in itself is absolute. It depends on the person who is living it. It gives me wider thinking and acceptance by not judging anyone according to my perception but by their situation.
Only possession a traveller have.. is things needed for survival like a bag, clothes , toothbrush, soap, mug , sleeping bag and a tent. It teaches you that you don’t become rich by collecting materialistic things but by gaining experiences and exploring your world more and more. A traveller finds happiness in conversation with strangers,empty road,fresh dews on the leaf of a flower , a calm and peaceful face of a monk etc. So It gives me the ability to see everything around me with curiosity and wonder. I find the joy in small things rather than big accomplishment. Everytime when i travel a new city it gives me the joy of gaining an educational achievement.
Apart of this travelling have bigger meaning in life. many of us sometimes loose the purpose of living and feel frustrated for running the rat race but if you are a traveller your purpose of living is to visit the places you havn't been to and experience the new culture , you dream about it all the time like an old saying "I am in love with the places I haven't been to and in love with the people i haven't met". It teaches me that whatever happens in life is an aspect of life and I feel glad I explored it.
