Traveling makes me feel uneasy. I always think I’ll forget something–often times I do. I never think I’m prepared enough for whatever circumstances may arise. What if I did need that extra pair of socks? Or maybe I’ll need a hat, despite the fact that I wear hats a whopping three out of three hundred and sixty five days of the year.
But, the truth is, no matter how much we over prepare or try to think of every possible circumstance we may encounter, no one is ever 100% aware of what’s to come. Sometimes we just have to walk into the abyss that is the unknown and believe that we are capable and strong enough to figure out life as it comes.
Even as I type this, I’m slightly skeptical of my real life problem-solving skills when in places I’m unfamiliar with. However, this week’s TunesDay set brings me peace of mind and will help me on my travels. Hopefully it does the same for you too.

One thought on “Happy TunesDay: Collection 21”
I totally know how you feel!! I get like that when I travel too, I start to feel anxious and I start packing things I rarely ever use in normal circumstances but think “I could really end up needing this!!”. I always think back to Costa Rica and how we made it through 10 days in the rain forest with very little… if we can do that, I think we can travel many other places and be just fine 🙂 You’re right though, eventually we just have to do the best we can to be prepared but ultimately accept that things may come up that we could have never foreseen happening.. that’s part of the fun of travel though, right? Wishing you safe and adventurous travels 🙂
