Wow what an amazing and unforgettable memory of mine…something we should all be proud of if we one day choose to say ‘YES’ too.
If you have been following my posts and you are even the slightest interested in what I have to say then I thank you for reading on, I want this to help you too. It may spark something for you, inspire you and possibly lead you to some amazing memories and a new direction.
So where did this all start and what made me consider this choice of mine… It’s quite simple, I knew I was ready, and I needed to explore myself in a pure and special place. As I’ve mentioned before, I am absolutely terrified of flying. Let me rewind that…I WAS terrified of flying. This truly helped me to overcome my fear. I had no one to comfort me and tell me it was going to be okay, but I took the leap of faith.
I got on that plane with fear, but I arrived in Turkey with nothing but a smile on my face, it really does show that facing your fears leads to tremendous outcomes for all of us. The days following slowed down and I made sure that I took every minute, hour and day as they came. I made sure that each day meant something to me, so I set off on my short journey.
My first day….another choice I had to make – 1. Choosing to stay comfortable by the pool all day or 2. Travelling to the beach and let’s be honest, if I stayed I would have only experienced 10% of what I originally set out to do. I put on my favourite outfit, got on the local minibus and made my way through the most beautiful mountains and sea views towards the beach. This decision right here took no real effort, just a choice. I sat on the beach that day for almost 3 hours, please bear in mind that only a handful of people were scattered around. Needless to say, there was not much entertainment. I honestly just felt the moment, took in the warm clean air and felt the sand between my toes. It really was only a choice that had the ability to change my morning path entirely. I felt free.
We should all be taking leaps of faith and please do try and step out of your comfort zone whenever the opportunity arises for you ———
