Running Away From Them

Running away from your problems is generally considered a bad thing but the reality is that your environment and the people around you have a huge impact on your life. And often, creating space and giving yourself time away is the best way to gain perspective. But if you’re human, then there’s a good chance that you are a root cause of your own problems and as the saying goes, you can’t run away from yourself. But changing yourself begins with changing your environment. Why is it that people say that fifty percent of working out is getting to the gym? You don’t need the gym, but it reduces the mental energy required to push yourself because, whether you like it or not, you are motivated by your surroundings

Whenever I find myself feeling listless or consumed by negative thoughts that I can’t seem to shake, I do something to shake up my life. And I’ve found that there’s no better way to inspire change than hopping on a plane and setting off on an adventure to a completely foreign place. On the road, I can free myself from my old routines and experience a different culture and way of life — and remind myself just how big and beautiful the world outside my world really is. And I’ve learned that change becomes inevitable once you leave your comfort zone.

Spending so much time in so many different places isn’t always easy but over time, I’ve figured out how to adapt to what I have while also shaping my environment into what I want it to be. In that way, backpacking has taught me that I can learn to be happy anywhere in the world, but it’s also shown me the extent to which I am influenced by the world around me — and that it’s up to me to create an environment for myself that motivates me to reach my goals, whatever they may be at the time. So if you are seeking change, then don’t be afraid to pick up your bags and go find it!

  1. I totally agree with this, “to create an environment for myself that motivates me to reach my goals, ” !! It’s very important to surround ourselves with the right kind of environment for us. Great post, trix! ☺️💛

  2. Great post. I often find a strange peace when travelling ‘on the road.’ It makes me think we’re not meant to have a single place to rest our heads. For me travelling is about being in the moment – because everything is new and different – I think it’s this realisation that brings about greater peace and perspective. Life is lived today – in this moment. Thanks for sharing.

When I was in the eighth grade, my English teacher told me ''You write beautifully but you write too much!''. That was the day I met my arch-nemesis: word limit. I eventually lost a couple of marks because of it. That was also the day I decided I wanted to write (not quite sure about what though!) for as long as I lived...
