Today I land back in England, my home and somewhere I am incredibly proud to say I grew up and will always return to.
That said I already can’t wait to leave. Because I am now a traveller and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Let me tell me why you need to leave your “home”. Nothing changes.
i have been coming and going for a while now and I promise you I’ve asked so many people “so tell me something new in your life” but Shockley they have nothing for me. I’ve had so many conversations where I’ve started thinking mid sentence “shit I’m the only one talking here, let’s slow down and let my counterpart have a go”. So I’ll ask questions and try to get some information out of whoever I’m talking to. But it fails and they end up asking more questions about my life.
Going home is great, I love it and I don’t think I could ever stay away forever without visiting. But nothing changes at home. You’ll find it instantly or you can already see it to be the case.
You need to get away to be able to fully find yourself and your values. Fun is the only thing that matters to me, nothing else. But I discovered this, no one told me or instructed me to be that way. I figured it out, I’m not saying fun is what matters to you but I’m saying how can you possibly know if all that you do know is your house and job and friends that haven’t changed in years.
This hasn’t been the first post about reasons to leave and it won’t be the last. However the feelings are strong with me now because I am “back where I belong” as my family say but I can’t wait to go somewhere new again, when you feel like that it’s impossible to not try to urge others to do the same.
