As you may have seen in my Instagram post this morning, this blog post wasn’t planned. It is actually the farthest thing from planned. I am sitting here with a mind full of thoughts and no idea of how this is going to turn out or how I even want it to turn out – so let’s see how this goes!
We all deserve. This was the line blaring in my mind when I started thinking about my post, about Bucket List Bookings, about why I keep it up, why I want to keep it up, why I feel like I need to keep it up… we all deserve.
Not to go too in depth on the story behind BLB because that’s not what I want this to be about but essentially BLB started as an outlet for me to do what I’m good at – travel planning. Little did I know it would turn into something so much more emotional than just taking the time and stress off the plates of friends and family by planning their vacations for them. BLB has turned into something that I feel I need to do because we all deserve.
I do BLB because of the person that says ‘traveling is too expensive… I just don’t have the money’. I do BLB because of the person that says ‘it’s too much work to plan a trip… I just don’t have the time’. I do BLB because of the person that says ‘I just have no interest in traveling… I’m content with home’. Those people are the fire behind BLB. They are the fire behind my emotions. They are the fire behind my passion. WE ALL DESERVE WANDERLUST!
Through BLB if I can show that person that doesn’t have much money sights they never thought they’d be able to see, I will feel fulfilled. If I can plan the trip for that busy person and get them traveling stress-free, I will feel accomplished. And if I can make that person that just feels content and complacent with home thirsty for more travel because on their trip they felt things they’ve never felt before, I will feel… I don’t really know how I’ll feel. How do you describe the feeling of essentially changing someone’s life through pursuing your passion…? Incredible? Excited? Larger than life? All of the above? And this is why BLB has become something so emotional for me. We all deserve wanderlust. No matter your situation, your excuses or your fears just remember, we all deserve.
Book the ticket and take the trip, y’all!
And if you can’t, don’t know how, or are too busy or nervous, you know who’s here to help.
