Here’s To All The Girls Who Catch Flights And Feelings

@saltinourhair

Here’s to the girls who are independent and know what they want out of life. The ones who are fearless and risk takers. The ones who would rather stay wild than become stagnant and comfortable. The ones who don’t feel the pressure to choose between travel and love because they’ve found a way to make it work.

Here’s to the girls who continue to live out their dreams while doing it with the person they love.

Catch the feelings, be with the person who makes your heart skip a beat but don’t let them control you. Find the balance needed to make it all work so you can follow your heart down a path that fulfills you with him.

Travel and love don’t have to be mutually exclusive. It is possible to have them both and you should, as long as that’s what you’re after.

There is nothing wrong with finding love on the road, finding someone who makes your path seem more purposeful and your travels feel more enjoyable. There is nothing wrong bouncing around from hostel to hostel together and making your own memories on the road. There is nothing wrong with finding other couples like you to spend your time with who enjoy new experiences together. There is nothing wrong with moving to a foreign country together to teach English.

The world is yours and just because you’re in love doesn’t mean your life should be limiting. 

There is no right or wrong way to be in love and travel, you just have to do it; you just have to find what works for you.

Love should make you want to be a better person and should make you challenge each other, it should never hold you back. Love shouldn’t limit you, make you bitter, control you or try to turn you into someone you’re not. Love should be freeing and inspiring. It should allow you to still live out your dreams.

Here’s to the girls who continue to live out their dreams, the ones who purchase a flight with their soulmate and the girls who find their soulmate on the road because it’s all possible.

Fall for the guy you meet at the airport while you’re waiting for your flights. Dance with the guy you meet at the bar. Say hello to the stranger who is sitting across from you at breakfast. Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there because sometimes being solo can be lonely. You shouldn’t be afraid to catch feelings while you’re on the road because you can have the best of both worlds.

Live out your curiosity and dreams so you don’t spend your whole life wondering what could have been. Just because you caught feelings doesn’t mean you can’t still catch flights. It doesn’t mean you can’t still live your life the way you intended. It doesn’t mean you can’t still live a life full of wander.

Here’s to the girls who catch flights and feelings. The ones who aren’t afraid to fall and feel while they’re on the road because they’ve discovered a balance that allows them to live out their dreams. Here’s to the girls who know what they want and aren’t afraid to go after it. Here’s to the girls who have fallen in love with their lives and proved you can catch flights and feelings. TC mark

You look back and you just feel stupid.
You can’t forgive yourself for falling
or believing all the lies.
You reread every text.
You relive every memory.
And it all starts making sense —
he never wanted love.
He only wanted attention.
He only wanted validation.

“It’s just wondrous how every time I go through some emotional trauma, your posts are so relatable and it gives me so much hope. I love the writing and the photos. It’s all a pleasure to read. I can’t thank you enough for it, really.” — DM from @ThoughtCatalog Instagram follower
