I Wish I Was a Travel Blogger but…an Update

I did something! I did something big! I took that stupid train to Montreal. I thought I would update all of you guys who showed love and encouragement on my last post about anxiety. I did something that scared the hell out of me and I feel so good.

Just a quick recap, I’ve had anxiety my whole life and it’s prevented me from doing that I want to do in life. I want to travel more than anything in the world. I want to be able to take a plane and just go, no worry and no fuss. The only problem, I get crippling travel anxiety amongst other anxiety triggers.

I did it, I took that train! I have never been so proud of myself. I was worried and got a bit panicky, but I pushed through it. On the train back from the trip I felt like I was walking on air. I felt accomplished and independent and like a bad ass bitch. I had finally done something that would get me in the right direction to my dream. I am now planning other trips to Montreal in the near future. I have caught the train bug.

How did I get to this point you may be asking? It’s only been two weeks since I posted my original post. First, I had a project that was due that kicked my ass into gear. I had to go to the city and I have no one to get me there. So that was less about bravery and more I didn’t want to fail my class because of anxiety. The second is writing in my journal. I have been writing religiously in my anxiety journal every day. Every time I feel a bit nervous about something, I write in it. I bring it with me everywhere. I find this is the one thing I need. I find it so funny how I never thought to do this before.

I am hoping to be able to grow and do even bigger things the more confident I get. I may be going to Disney World or down south. I really want to be able to blog about it.

If really hope this helps people. I know my vulnerability helps me. The more honest I am the more I feel better about my anxiety.

  1. I’m so glad to hear that you managed to push past the anxiety to go! It gets easier the more often you do it to ignore that little voice in your head telling you that everything is going to go badly and to just take the jump and go for it. Definitely keep travelling and keep with it. xx
