He who is outside his door has the hardest part of his journey behind him. -Dutch proverb
I’ve been reading this book on armchair travel inspiration and even though I love the idea of being transported to different places without leaving my house, there’s something about taking that first step outside your door. That act alone can be life-changing. I really believe that some of the hardest parts to travel is finding the inspiration and courage to just take that first step. I’m always dreaming up new places to go and things to see but without an initiating action, nothing happens.
Sometimes all we need to do is take that first step. Just step outside your own door. You never know what you might see by just getting out of your own comfort zone and exploring your city and the world. Take a photo. Write a poem. Share your experience with the world. Just take that first step outside of your door. It really is the hardest part.
