Leap of Faith

I reminded quite often that I am brave for partaking in solo trips, and without fail, each time I chuckle and say no I am not. It is usually followed by the person saying they could never do it. Two years ago, I was the other person. I internally debated day and night whether or not I could do it. In February 2015, I took the leap. It was a spur-of-the-moment decision to pack up and head to the unknown. To say I was scared would be an understatement—I was terrified.

I had never felt a rush like I did that week. With adrenaline pumping through my veins, I explored a city I had never been in.  I am not brave, I am not fearless, but I believe the greatest things can sometimes be disguised in a deep fog of fear.

As I prepare to take the next leap of faith in another solo trip, I ask you to contemplate what you are afraid of doing, but can’t ever quite get the idea out of your mind. Maybe, just maybe, it’s worth the leap of faith.

One thought on “Leap of Faith

  1. A fellow solo traveler here! I too am told that whenever I am about to leave/come back from a solo trip, and I too chuckle and say that I am not brave. I’m growing weary of traveling alone because I do get lonely, but I’m glad I’ve done it a few times. You’re forced to stay on your toes and be alert, especially as a woman. And that strangely helps you to take in more of your surroundings and the experience. 🙂
