Have you ever been bored, frustrated, or suffocated by the ordinary life you have been living all this while? If yes, then you surely need some change and spice in your life. You can fulfill this missing spice by traveling. No, not the regular traveling with all the planning and the itinerary.
Today I encourage you to pack your bags and leave without an itinerary and allow yourself to be lost in the lap of mother nature. You would be wondering how getting lost and being unprepared would benefit anyone.
Here are 5 Reasons Why You Should Get Lost Somewhere, Literally!
You would experience the real meaning of freedom, and you would learn how to deal with various situations and adapt to anything that comes your way. As you do not have any plans or bookings done, you would wander around, look into various places that offer food and accommodation and finally go for the best one, which would suit your pocket and requirements. Do you not want to wander like that?
- Meet new people
You would respond to new people and explore their culture and lifestyle. You would see things with a newfound perspective. Their lifestyle would give you the change you are craving. You would make new friends, and who knows, you may also meet your soulmate somewhere down the line.
- Fear fighting
You will fight all your inhibitions and fears if you have to survive in an unknown place. You would ask for directions from strangers; you will ask for suggestions from strangers for your accommodations and for references in that new place. You would visit the places you never thought of visiting. You would have fears, but you would finally overcome them and emerge as a braver and stronger person.
- Quick decision-making
Living alone without much guidance and mentoring makes you rely purely on yourself. Your instincts, experience, and wisdom are what make you choose right from wrong. This helps you make better decisions and improves your decision-making skills. You might be a person who would research and check every possible option before selecting or the instinctive one-shot choosing person, but you would make the decision that’s best for you and rely on no one but yourself to sail through the storm.
Do you have a memory from your childhood when you found yourself lost in a strange land? Even up to this day, no matter what, it seldom happens that you forget that event. However, you were probably a kid with no knowledge of the world and just a small, vulnerable being full of fear. Now, you are an adult who is independent enough to live by yourself and understand how the world works. This single experience would shape your entire life, and you would emerge as a smarter, stronger, sharper, more intelligent, and mature person. A person you never thought you could be.
Thus, sometimes it is important to get lost to find yourself. You would discover things about yourself that you never knew, and your personality would grow tremendously.
So go out there and allow yourself to get lost.
