Sarahn Says Travel + Life Tip #8: Get comfortable asking for direction.
If you’re making the most of your time away, chances are you’re moving around a lot. That’s great! Keep it moving. With all the excitement around you, it’s in your best interest to take it all in while the opportunity is presenting itself. All the places you’re going, and things you’ll see, surely it’s a great time to be alive. Things are new and you’re excited to get going but you might not know the safest, fastest or most efficient way to get there, or even the right direction to move towards. Luckily, the universe places people and things around us to help us when we are in need. Sometimes we don’t want to stop a stranger or ask for more clarity from a mentor, usually in fear of appearing helpless or needy. But it’s okay! It’s okay to not know, it’s okay to need assistance and it’s okay to know you need assistance. Sometimes you’ll be able to figure it out on your own even if it means getting lost along the way. Sometimes you’ll have to stop and turn back, or pause and look around. Those moments teach you about how resilient you are and remind you that you can eventually find the answers in time. But there’s nothing wrong with learning about how resourceful you can be, by relying on things around you. You can save yourself time, energy and effort — and avoid danger, by using resources that are designed to help you. And you can learn just as much the easy way when you get comfortable asking for direction. #sarahnsays
