“If traveling was free, you’d never see me again.”
Since I was young, I always wonder how it feels to travel to different places. Because our family couldn’t afford such a luxury, I was happy to visit my relatives’ places every summer. My possess wandering was over when I entered the University. With so much hope, I know I can still travel after college and getting a job will help me eventually.
As soon as I got the job afterward, I went somewhere far from my hometown and away from my Parents. It was totally something new for me, I feel the freedom, one thing that I have wished for a long long time. But freedom comes with a responsibility, right? I think I abused it- I got pregnant, wedded, quit my job, took care of the baby and the rest are history.
It took me so long before I re-structured my life again. It seized me a lot of lessons from my experiences that I couldn’t even fathom before. I had to love one person to another before I could love myself. It took me a lot of courage to accept what I cannot change and finally appreciate, that life is beautiful after all.
So, I started to live again and woke up from my sleeping dream – to travel -one at a time.
I truly enjoyed wandering to some places now as I had imagined before. It is breathtaking for me. It is a little enjoyment after months or years of working hard. It is an award to myself from myself since no one would ever compensate me.
While I am savoring this pleasure, few persons believe that I’m overspending my money, that seems I have to expend only what is most needed and keep the rest in savings. Besides, other people expect that if you are able to travel, you must be rich (how I wish).
And yes, I know I need to save, how could a single parent not think of that? do you think I am not afraid of my future? but then, if I will just keep on saving without spending, living without fun and worrying without assurance, how would I live my life again? Tell me.
Enjoy and savor the times now. xo

It’s very difficult keep a balance between the practical and our dreams but life is short and we only have one so my advice would be to not overspend but otherwise do what makes you happy :O) x
