5 Things I Have Learned Through Travelling

As of lately, I’ve been on a bit of a mission. One of them, is to tick off – the bucket list of places I’ve always wanted to visit. In my mind, I’ve embarked on route 66 but for now I’m currently in Atlanta! In my next blog, I’ll be getting into what I’ve gotten up to so far, and what the ATL has to offer.  (For those of you that travel or are new to this world of adventure, you may be familiar with a few things in this list either or…you heard it here first!

 5 things I have learned through travelling

1) Have an open mind.

If you don’t, you could end up getting frustrated over things you would otherwise overlook, within your hometown. It’s not about compromising who you are but having a little patience. This goes a long way, into having a fruitful experience.

2) I’m an ambassador for my country.

Whenever I visit a new country, people often tell me how they would love to visit London/the UK. I know its cold majority of the time, and I also know I’m not the only one that finds after being in a country majority of your life, things can get a little boring. However, the excitement I see in people’s faces lets me know, I can be –am, a great ambassador for my country. So with casual ”Hello’s” and informal introductions out of the way; ”Excuse me”? Think, selling point. High-time I get paid for it too!

3) Self-Love

Ever heard of the saying ”it’s not you, it’s me.” Well if you’re new to a country, whether visiting or relocating and the odd person doesn’t immediately gravitate towards you, then fret not. They’re just as curious as you were; trying to explore that hidden gem of a market you heard about from your friend’s trip to morocco. Sometimes. So just swap that -timeless old saying around, the next time you see prying eyes. Really, ”It’s not me, it’s you.’’ 😊

4) I’m posh, even when I’m not trying to be.

5) You can make lifelong connections through travelling.

I have met many kinds of people, some in which I am still in contact with. Whether it’s through a mutual contact, being on summer break, work-related travel or simply through conversation in a social gathering; don’t be afraid to talk to people. Observe your surroundings (as a safety tip), now take the floor. At least, one person.

Blogging Niche

Remember the saying “rules are made to be broken?” While I was neither here nor there with the term but grew tired of hearing it, I do believe in a day off.

Now thanks to the re-definition of niche, some kind of showdown occurred with my voice of reason. The kind that boldly suggests I must stick to my “niche” and God forbid, not stick to it. Well, this is what happened when I tried it out.

Nothing.

Blog

My pen suffered, & I was cracking my brain about what I could do to uplift something, or someone somewhere? What I needed to do was blog about it, upbeat or not.

Sometimes, I just want to rant… For everything I don’t rant about in “real-life” I’m talking face to face situations too. Quite frankly, I don’t have the energy, but this is why you’re here!

I could write about 2Pac and what he did for Music as an Art-form, and how he gave Poetry a whole new meaning.

The Emancipation of Mimi, & albums that came just when I needed it.

At times be so gutsy you’ll miss the romance, in the poem.

Then there’s “reality shows” love or hate, like too much of social media we’d love to hate. Guilty pleasures anyone?

Niche Sport

You can love football so much you decide to blog about it. But if you’re a writer first who happens to enjoy the sport, know the ins & out to the game & all the players, still you work as a graphic designer and blog about it… The super bowl, however is coming up. Now it’s a toss between the football lover, and the die-hard obsessed fan who has to choose between their first love & love that makes sense. The good news is, there are many lovers out there.

May the force be with you?

I’ve read personal stories, seen posts with nothing but pure art. What can I say? I’m inspired. I’ll leave the engineers to their technicalities but hey, a good piece is a good piece and I wouldn’t mind one too.

 

What-does-this-all-mean

My niche is how I see it. Things that move me, topics I like or something that just so happens to connect, my niche is my bite-size interpretation of “it all.”

I’ll go crazy talking about one thing with so many options…My take, is my Niche. (Disclaimer). Here’s to having a niche, within a niche.
