To My Grandkids,
I booked that shiz.. a couple times...
Throughout my life, my plans have changed A LOT- if you know me, you know I can't ever make up my mind haha... Well, one thing has always stayed the same- my love for traveling, and my desire to travel the world. Of all the things I've switched up on, (wanting to be a surgeon, scientist, scuba diver, musician, in the army, photographer, etc etc) I've always known I want to travel.
About 8 months ago, I decided to take a trip to Montana to see my mom, and immediately fell in love with this gorgeous state. After going back to small town Cameron, I decided I had to make the move. We had a cruise planned with my family for right before I came, which was AMAZING, and I have a whole blog written about it too, stay tuned ;) So we went on the cruise, and then from there, I flew straight back to Montana. Booked that shiz, did that shiz, it's been great!
Flash forward 3 months, I was looking into going on a trip somewhere, and was brainstorming it for a couple days. One morning, I woke up and decided to go to a coffee shop and do some research.. Long story short, some things led me to finding a place called Goa, India, and I knew right away that's where I needed to go. I started doing some research on it, and I felt so emotionally overwhelmed, and connected to this place I had never even heard of... I was writing down ideas, and the sun broke through the clouds and sent a perfect beam right across my journal where it said Goa.. (This is also how I got the name 'SunGuided' because the sun always guides me when making decisions, and I always follow the sunny places/ bright moments on life- I'll go deeper into that later!) I thought about it for a couple days, and then just went for it...
Feb 1st, I decided to just book it, and stop making excuses.
I am so excited for this next step in my life. I won't be leaving for a couple months, but I am NOT changing my ticket under any circumstances. I am sticking to it NO MATTER WHAT!
When we dream about something, often we see it in our head, and we want to make a move on it, but we either make excuses for ourselves, or we just replay the idea in our head without taking action.. I have always been that way, but dreams will stay dreams, merely a thought that spikes your heart rate when you think about living it- we settle for that feeling, instead of jumping in, and finding a way to make it happen.
Don't settle anymore. Take the first step, and DO IT. Stop thinking about it, and DO IT.
It will be stressful, but that's life. Either make it happen, or it won't.
You'll be so glad you did.
Even though you don't exist yet, I love you so. Dream big. Take a leap. Book the ticket. Grow, learn, and experience. Do It.
Love, your crazy grandma J :)
