Why do you stay in prison when the door is so wide open?

Although I am a typical loner in my daily life, my awareness of belonging to the invisible community of those who strive for truth, beauty and justice has prevented me from feeling of isolation. :))

When everything feels like an uphill struggle, just think of the view from the top.

FOMO 🤯 48hrs in Istanbul just wasn't enough... Or was it? 📝#blog

I could spend the rest of the year writing blogs on learning and new perceptions from my world tour but here's one I revisited in my recent trip to Istanbul.

Before arriving to a new destination I would read and research all about it, what there was to do, when was best to do it, best hostels, activities, restaurants, bars, etc..
.
As a productivty and delivery guy I'd use my trusty notebook, to do list and calendar, to fit as much as humanly possible in the time in each destination.

FOMO ruled and with the mantra, 'I might never be back here', I was anxious to do and see everything.

But what I became conscious of was a background stress to get it all done and not miss out.

This meant that I often wasn't 100% present in any experience, always making plans, setting expectations and looking toward the next thing.

I don't do that anymore. Instead of maximising the number of things I do and see, I focus on maximising my ability be open and present and really live in the experiences I have.

This lesson I've been able to extend into my life beyond travel, FOMO for the next job, the next flat, the next big goal... Sure I'm still super ambitious, but like never before I'm choosing to live each day with great purpose and great presence 💫
