Sorry for being selfish

East Cape, NZ 2014

I have been wanting to document my findings and start writing about adventures for far too long now. I had it all set up: the domain name, the ideas, the time. I never pulled the trigger though, because frankly, I’m the queen of procrastination. I kept making excuses and stressing myself out with all of the details. You know, the same BS everybody goes through– I was stalling because I was scared.

Scared nobody would read and tune in. Scared no one would care or get anything out of it. Through all of my worries and doubts, I realized I was being selfish.

Selfish to the people around me who want to know and experience what’s going on in my life. Selfish to the possible strangers who feel the same way as me. And last, but not least, selfish to myself, who wanted to be better and dig deeper to meet the real person I want to become.

I don’t have it all figured out, I’m broken, I’m messed up, and I make heaps of mistakes, but that’s the journey. I may not know it all, but I do know I’m simply not okay with living a half-assed life, and nor should anyone. Whatever your passions are, our lives weren’t meant to be complacent. We should always strive to win.

So I’ve decided to be less selfish and believe in myself enough to share my point of view through travel. To me, that’s winning.

What’s important to you? What are your passions? What makes you want to win?
