Sharing Your Dream to Travel
Telling others of your plans to go
Once you have decided to go, and you have told your child, work out who is next. If you are confused about this, you can probably seek the advice of luxury travel experts. They will be kind enough to advise you on how to handle family travel. For a single parent like me, I found so much help for looking for answers to my dilemma from single parent travel blogs and experts.
I loved my sister Glenda’s response. She looked at me and said, “Go for it, you deserve it”. It is just so wonderful to get such encouragements. However, you will rarely get them at the start of your preparation to leave.
So think out a few answers to the curly questions that will be shot at you like fire-darts.
- The ready answers you will need to have at your fingertips are:
- Why you want to go.
- Where you want to go.
- When you want to go.
- How long you want to travel.
There are some who will encourage you to take that step of faith and travel the world since kids achieve so much from the lessons they learn as they cross borders and get exposed to new things. I was reminded of kids who left for their world travels and when they came back, they were brighter than their peers. Some even skipped a grade or two when the came back.
I have realized that you and the child determine what is learned during a trip around the world. You need to help your child to understand the need for him/her to grasp every educative information as you travel the world.
If you practice this and make it part of life before you leave, the transition will be easier.
What you want to remember is that you are an adult, and you have made this wise decision after giving it a serious thought, and proper goal planning. So no words should bring you down.
Keep it close to your heart – work out was is best for you when sharing your dream to travel.
You are free to live your life the way you want. Your dreams are not other people’s dreams. They are unique to you. Many who think you are nuts, live in their cottages, with white picket fences, and have 2.2 children!
Now start to spend time with people who motivate and encourage you! People who believe you can be what you want to be, and do what you want to do.
I was blessed with a mother (God rest her soul), who taught us to always be free to follow any career path we chose, as long as we were happy. What a woman!
The worst thing if you are selling your home is that the only thing you will keep hearing is “has your house sold yet?” I wish I had kept that part more of a secret – as it is quite draining to keep replying “not yet”.But each open inspection is one step closer to a sale, so I tell my son.
Take your time to prepare for your trip, and take your time to tell people. You may want to keep it a secret for a while – I did!
If you want to sell your car and buy a new one later when you return, do. This is your time. People love to give advice – like me – but do what is right for you.
