Here at The Root Salon, we love to hear stories about the adventures and misadventures of our clients. And now I’ve been sharing one of my own.
Recently, I went on a two week trip to Thailand.
And while that may sound like a trip of a lifetime, things started off in an unexpected way. Due to certain circumstances, I ended up traveling alone! AND, it was my first time ever to leave the country.
I never, ever thought I’d end up taking my first overseas trip alone. No way! In fact, I always envisioned traveling to a far-away destination with a romantic partner.
Needless to say, I was slightly uneasy with the solo trip. But, resolved to never being intimidated by adventure, I decided to give it a shot.
Having gone to Thailand alone and traveling the country, I not only had the best time and met so many people along the way, I learned so much about myself! I found out that I have the strength to depend on myself and that I have the courage to be spontaneous. I also learned that something like this is exactly what life is about for me – it’s about just taking it as it comes.
I hope the next time you are met with an unexpected change in your life, you remember my story. It may be a small example but this experience changed my perspective and I feel better equipped to handle the twists and turns that life has to offer.
