We move now from the mental realm – the world of discoveries, choices and goals.

In general, most people have been very positive and supportive of it, but there have been a few naysayers that have made me think for a second; “what am I doing?”

But, only for a second.

While it’s not all bad to get the “gatekeeper’s” perspective, I’m not going to let other people’s negativity stop me from following my dream.

Too many times I’ve experienced this situation.  Before setting on my first solo-backpacking trip to Thailand, I got so many negative feedback about the fact that I was traveling alone to a “dangerous” country and that I was “wasting” the little money I had by going there.
