temp-post-image Traveling, change or moving from place to place are a couple things many people fear, just enough not to do it. If you have been thinking about what you should do next in your life and moving to a different state, country or city has been on your mind, I suggest you do it.

What is the worst that can happen?! You hate it? Okay, move back or leave. Then you learn from it and move on with your life. These past four years as a college student, including my study abroad experience, have taught me that you shouldn’t let anyone or anything hold you back from doing what you believe will make you happy. I truly believe this, not only in a way of travel, but also in a way of life.

Being as young as the majority of us are, life gives us endless opportunities. This is the time to try new things and experience life from many different viewpoints, no matter if they are negative or positive outcomes. Don’t just sit back and watch others' happiness - go and fulfill your wildest dreams as well. You don’t want to look back at your youthful years and think what if? You want to look back and know that you did what you were curious about, even if the results weren’t exactly what you had expected.

This is the age where we make mistakes and learn from them. This is the age where we meet new people and grow together. This is the age where we find out what we like and dislike. This isn’t the age that we sit and worry about what others will think of our choices. This isn’t the age that we take life so seriously. This isn’t the age that we pass up opportunities that will make us happy. You’re bright, ambitious, fun loving and passionate. Prove it, to yourself, no one else. Go out and do the things that you have been curious about. Don’t let fear hold you back from chasing your dreams. Don’t be the bitter old lady that wonders, ‘what if?’ for the rest of her life.
