Donna Higton shares with us how she left her everyday routine to go backpacking to the other side of the world.
She explains how although friends and colleagues advised her against it she left everything she knew to go travelling and that how it was on this adventure she 'found herself'.
Donna returned from her travels with passion and purpose, but was soon fell back in to her old routines, even back to the same job. She knew something had to change and she shares exactly what did.
Although Donna was living the life she was 'supposed to want', she had a successful job, great social life, house etc but she had a nagging feeling that there must be more to life.
So she did what she had never even considered before, she went travelling.
During her adventures she fully understood the concept of enjoying the journey, and that it wasn't about the destination.
That the beauty was in the unfolding of discovering herself, and this this process was more valuable than any label she could give herself.
This process also allowed her to become an author. She shares how ever since she was a child she had always wanted to write. But it took her until she was 35yrs old to acknowledge this truth and another 7years to admit it to others.
That dissatisfaction could be your soul nudging you in the right direction.
A day without laughter is a day wasted.
