Everyone has a list of things they want to do. This is usually a list of things they have thought about doing. If we take a step back and look at these thoughts, we realize that some of these thoughts were nothing more than ideas. Yes, thoughts become ideas but ideas should become actions.
I am 26 years old going on 27. I’ve thought about seeing the world. I’ve thought about traveling to London and paddling the waters of Venice. I’ve thought about playing more music and volunteering. I’ve thought about taking up French and touching up on my Spanish. I’ve thought about writing a book and reading poetry again. I’ve thought about leaving home. These thoughts were just thoughts.
The beauty of having the ability to dream is that we can go anywhere we want. We can close our eyes and imagine we are in a different place. We can envision ourselves in a completely different environment but what happens when we open our eyes? Nothing. We didn’t create memories. We didn’t obtain experiences to reflect on. What’s a dream without action? Just a dream.
My name is Anna (short for Anonymous) and I am ready to do everything I didn’t do. I am ready to do everything I thought about doing… the things I never did.
My journey will begin on a month long adventure away from home. My destination is a 12 hour drive from my current address and exists in a place I have never been. I am traveling to the unknown. This is a big deal for me. I have never experienced what it is like to leave home. In just a few weeks, I shall pack my bags, say goodbye to my family, and hit the road with zero expectations.
I’ve created this blog for a few reasons but you can utilize it however you want. For me, I want to share my experiences, motivate others to do everything they didn’t do, and SEE the change in myself. I am not sure of much but I am sure that change is on the way.
See you on the road.
