I want to plant roots but I will do it gradually, I will do it for myself, and I will do it on my own terms.
You’ll be forced out of your comfort zone.
Although I’m usually driven by a burst of energy and excitement when I decide to start over in a new place, I also enter a state of mourning for the old life I’m leaving behind, which in turn becomes a self-driven guilt trip for my own miseries.
It’ll be hard, but it’ll be worth it.
Time to say goodbye, memories, newly packed suitcases, heavier than they were when it all started.
It’s one giant cycle. “Digital nomads” come to places like Thailand. They post selfies of cocktails and beaches and their suntans on social media sites and their blogs. They sell useless shit to each other and glorify their lifestyle to keep a constant stream of wealthy suckers coming to Thailand to buy their crap.
We’re wired differently. Craving adventure more than the rest. Don’t let the world tell you, you are wrong. Catch the damn flight.
I look forward to the rhythm that comes with small town life.
I can honestly say I’ve never felt more comfortable in my skin before. In part because of how I’ve grown as a person here; the insecurities, fears, and anxieties I’ve let go of.
If you can be flexible on dates, times, destinations, and/or airports then your chances of finding a cheap flight will be much easier.
