Having your WHY leads to healing

And whether we want to recover or we want | anything else, our journey will never be straight and smooth. We always climb over obstacles and bury ourselves on boulders. Sometimes proper, sometimes smaller, those that remind us of the need not to give up, climb over, clear out of the way, and see your target behind them again.

To overcome these logs and stones, it is extremely important to know our WHY. Why is my goal so important to me? What will be the outcome? What will it bring to my life? Being absolutely clear why we want this thing so much and be determined to overcome these obstacles and not listen to what our brain whispers for excuses and negative thoughts. Because he can think of them countlessly and complicate the path to recovery.

A small sample of my current situation: -):

I’m writing this article in the van. His name is Kolod, and for several months he becomes my partner, friend, home. I make my dream come true. I set out on a trip to Southern Europe in Transit for sleep. I’ve had this idea in my head for a long time, and I know that if I didn’t do it, I’d regret it as an old grandmother, I’d miss a piece of myself.

Alone in the car, away from home, from Duck, you still have to deal with some organizational stuff, get data on the internet for work, you’ll be just afraid there. Forget it, no one is forcing you to stay at home, here you have comfort, peace … ”

My WHY was and is very strong. I perceive this primarily as an important journey to myself, as an important period in my life, far from being just “normal” travel. I wish my journey brought me:
