Smoph's musings

Just my thoughts on the world

Don’t think, just do

I have finally booked in my trip to Fiji for October. I have been saying for years that I would go with my dear friend Nikki, and finally, I am going.

When I committed to this holiday, I sat back and said to myself… Why have I been holding back on this so long? What could possibly have held me back from travelling to a beautiful island paradise?
The answer?: I don’t know. Except that I have realised was afraid and couldn’t acknowledge it to myself.
It has been a long time since I travelled overseas, and I was a child under my parent’s guidance and protection. This is the first time I have truly stepped out on my own, where only I am responsible for my personal safety, and apart from the lovely people I am staying with and one of my best friends, I am a million miles away from the people I love.
I am afraid of the debt it will bring. How I will pay for it, being an independent woman on her own… No more shinies for me for a while.
But at the end of the day, I will have been to Fiji, somewhere new and exciting in the world. I for once will have followed through on one of my plans! I have a reason to be proud of myself and I will have memories that will last a lifetime.
For once, I am following the advice of Snow Patrol and so many others:

Don’t think, just do!
