Traveling is like the Nike slogan, “Just Do It.” There is always an excuse one could say and use to not go on a trip. “I don’t have the money”, “I can’t get the time off work”, “maybe next year” or “I’m too busy.” Excuses will only delay a trip or even cancel it all together. Risk of missing out on adventures, experiences or memories isn’t worth all the excuses. Yes life has its curve balls and unexpected turmoils like family situations or personal issues, but petty excuses like the ones listed above aren’t justifiable. People get too wrapped up in life and end up missing it and missing the world around them.
Yes, easier said than done. And I do have to admit that I have been a victim of “I don’t have the money” and other non-valid excuses, but I have learned that money isn’t a good reason to not go on a trip or being too busy is valid enough to cancel a flight. Money always seems to emerge and an opportunity to travel will always come in time.
Like the Nike slogan, “Just Do It.” Life isn’t going to wait for you, so don’t be waiting for life to happen. Next time a trip comes to mind, take a moment and ask yourself if the excuses are really logical.
