You must think I’m crazy, but no. I truly believe that travel not only can save your life, but also give you a new perspective of what you want in life .
I know this for my personal history.
Seven years ago my husband died of cancer. I went into a serious depression. rather than take a year off I began to work I sign a new employment contract the day my husband died. Why? because everyone claming that I had to work, keep myself busy was the best recipe to overcome death. The resuldado was a serious breakdown that took me even attempted suicide. And developing agoraphobia. I spent a year living my life unable to leave home. Then for some reason I started thinking about what my husband and me we though we will do went he get well. And was to travel to our favorite places . We had beee in Paris, London, Barcelona, but we stile have so many countries to visit. That day makes a determination to finish what we started.
I book my first ticket to Holland , then to menorca, new york. ibiza. My next trip will be Berlin. After that i’m thinking about travel to Africa.
Because I started traveling I stopped being afraid to make projects alone. For a woman who used to do everything with her husband , That is not bad. Not only have I been able to travel, I’ve done theater, film, tlevision and I’m writing this blog. All because I decided to catch a plane.
My advice is don’t be afraid, save some money and get the next plane to your new life.
