Happy New Year bohemian friends and Happy one year anniversary to Bohemian Agent! Woohoo!
Thanks for sticking with me for the past year or for joining in with me somewhere along the way these past twelve months.
I promised you a travel blog dedicated to inspired story-telling, manifesting your own happy, life after 40, international living and travel experiences as a solo female explorer. I’d say it’s time for me begin to delivering the most exciting part of this journey with you. Your journey and manifesting what happiness means to you!
I”d like to remind you that all roads traveled began with a dream. That’s what got me here sharing my stories with you in the first place. Do you remember my big impossible idea of moving to Spain that nobody (including myself) knew how on earth I would ever pull off? Well, I remember it like it was yesterday and it was exactly two years ago nearly to the day from this very moment. Wow, time flies when you are having fun. But, it also flies by when you aren’t, hence the reason for this little flame under your behind to get you thinking about where you’d like to go this year and those to follow.
Everything starts with a first step, so here is one to take if you so desire: Where do you want to go?
Start flexing your annual travel muscles. The key here is to get clear about your priorities and not giving a vague answer like “everywhere.” The person that focuses on going everywhere may be going nowhere fast if you get my drift, so get clear and put your visualizing cap on and look into your crystal ball of happiness. What does happy travel look like to you? Is it warm? Is there a beach? Is it tropical? Are there mountains? Is it near a city?
Okay, that was just a mini warm up to get your juices flowing, but you cannot stay that vague for long if you want to truly set sail on a 2018 journey.
It’s time to get specific. What country do you want to visit? Specifically what city or cities will you want to see when you arrive? Maybe you want to visit two countries nearby one another and a few big cities in both? The important thing here is to start focusing on the WHERE not the HOW and let yourself fester here for a little while to get your heart pitter pattering and excited. Dream big! You never know what type of travel specials or opportunities that may manifest once you have reached clarity and told The Universe that you are ready for this to happen in 2018.
Give it a try! Write down three different countries that you would love travel to in the next 6 to 12 months. Spend time on Google Maps or tap into your inner Rocky Dennis (from the movie Mask starring Cher) and pull out a real map with some thumbtacks to claim your journey the old school way. Push pins and dreams, baby! Start with three countries you have always wanted to see and get excited about the next manifesting step that we will take together once you have given your dream destination for 2018 some thought.
