When I tell people my travel schedule, I generally get the same reaction that is somewhere along the lines of “are you crazy? How do you breathe? Why?” I get it. Travelling over 50% of the year isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. It’s stressful, leaves little room for routine and staying in touch is a very real struggle.
But it’s also inspiring, growth-inducing and has completely broadened my perspective on the world and the people that inhabit it. And perhaps most importantly, I’ve eaten some damnnnn good food.
I’m a pretty high-strung person whose anxieties are generally amplified by travel. But that’s the exact reason why I think it’s so good for me to travel. I’m wired to function best with routine. It makes life seem somewhat more predictable or at least give the illusion like I have some control. But then suddenly things change and this sense of control dissipates into thin air and I’m left freaking out over the shattered pieces. My attempts to tame my anxieties end up back-firing in a very big way.
A recipe for healthier ginger molasses cookies, made with unrefined coconut sugar, light on the butter and a zesty spice mix. Sub gluten-free flour for a gluten-free alternative or keep regular for an equally delicious cookie recipe.
But let’s be honest, you probably didn’t notice. There was a time in my life when I genuinely believed that if I took one day off from blogging, you would all forget THM existed. Luckily I got over that fear and taking a break from blogging is not the challenge it used to be.
I’m grateful that I’ve learned to relax and not let this whole blogging gig take over my life, but then a 5 day break turns into a 10 days break, turns into a 2 week break and suddenly your motivation to show up seems non-existent.
