“Don’t miss out on something that could be great just because it could also be difficult” 

I wasn’t sure whether or not to post this because I do acknowledge everyone’s journey is different and of course everyone is at a different stage in there journey…but this is something that I’ve learnt and wanted to share.

If you’ve been catching up with my Instagram stories (@findyourownhope), a few weeks ago I went on a pretty big driving trip across Queensland. We covered over 3500kms in 10 days and going on the trip was a huge achievement for me. 

I started to realise in life there’s no “ideal time” to do something. And I think this problem is even more of an issue for chronic illness sufferers ❤️

I definitely wasn’t feeling great before it and life was busy with uni – I had every reason to not take the leap and go but I’ve come to realise all the times I push myself although I have dreaded it and have a setback, it is worth it. 

I know this is not always the case. I’ve battled through a lot and come a long way to be in this position today. 

I’m lucky to feel I can try take the leap more BUT I wanted to share that … 

Through every adventure I’ve been on there’s never been an ideal time, I’ve never felt 100%. Most of the time I want to cancel and if I was waiting for when I felt good – I wouldn’t have achieved or gotten where I am today. 

So don’t say no or rule something out because it’s hard. Make adjustments and do it your way, even if it’s not how you pictured life to be. Life is worth it. 

It will take years of trying and set backs but that’s how we continue to build our strength. 

Don’t give up hope ❤️

    Well done for taking the leap! The unknown is always scary, but you grow so much from taking risks. Especially when it involves travelling or stepping outside a physical comfort zone. This is a great motivational post! 🙂

    What a lovely post! Major props to you for taking that leap – crazy how much of a gateway those risks can be. And that’s something I definitely need to remember myself! I hope you’re well lovely.
