Quest: Coming Home

Coming home after a big journey is one of the hardest parts. What do you do next? How do you talk about what you had just done? And how do you handle people in your life that just don’t understand and maybe aren’t supportive of your journey?I found that being the biggest supporter of my work and my quest was the greatest support I could have ever asked for. Shutting out that little voice in your head that says “you can’t do it” and replacing it with “you’re the best!”, “you got this” and “wow, look what you just accomplished!” The little things help you get through it all.

Having a non-supportive family is a really challenging situation but it happens more often than not for us travelers. I have experienced returning from a trip and being greeted by family saying things like, “now it’s time to get back to reality” or “welcome back to the real world.” The problem with these kinds of comments is that they don’t understand the “real world” means different things to different people. My real world is all about traveling! I couldn’t imagine a life not getting out there and seeing all of what this great big world has to offer. Just because our “American Dream” isn’t centered around a 9-5 job, owning a house and having a nuclear family by 30 doesn’t mean it’s the wrong dream. Everyone should shape their life to what they desire because there is nothing wrong with living outside of the box.

    Without adpoting new techniques that are a little more relevant towards todays internet based society, the libraries are going to fall farther and farther behind when it comes to SEO. Less librarians and more SEO experts….LikeLike
