10 Reasons why you should Travel solo! 

Travelling itself is an amazing experience  but there is something extra special about solo adventures! I went alone and in doing so I learnt so much!

1. You are more open to meeting new people – When you travel with a friend, it is easy to stick to what you know! You are less likely to put yourself out there as much as you could! Travelling solo, allows you to start more conversations and get to know more people. It improves your social skills!

2. You learn to trust yourself – You only have you to guide you, you don’t have anyone else’s influences or opinions. This enables you to start making choices and decisions solely for yourself.

3. You get to know yourself – You have the time to get to know who you really are, and what you really like. You end up learning so much about yourself that you didn’t know before.

4. It’s empowering – Achieving something completely on your own is such an empowering feeling! You feel you can achieve and conquer anything.  You feel a strength you probably haven’t felt before.

5. You can do whatever you want! – You can do whatever you want to do and you can go wherever you want to go! You do not need to think of anyone else’s needs, just your own! You can go at your own pace and truly enjoy the essence of freedom!

6. You appreciate your friends & family more – Being away from everyone you know, you start to get a new sense of appreciation for them. You will realise how valuable they are in your life.

7. You learn the world isn’t as scary as you think – The world isn’t as bad as it is portrayed! You will meet amazing people and discover amazing places. Sure, you need common sense. But you learn there is more good in this world than bad!

8. You learn independence & self confidence – You discover a new confidence within yourself. You do things you wouldn’t before, you rely on yourself completely and you enjoy your time alone!

9. It will make you brave & enjoy taking risks – Travelling solo can be scary! Doing so proves to yourself how brave you really are. It will make you want to do more things that scare you, and you learn from taking a risk opens up a world of possibilities.

10. You realise you are never really alone- No matter where you end up in the world there is always people around you that are up for a chat or to tag along on an adventure.

Hello lovely's thanks for stumbling by. If you are a returning reader, thanks for your continuous loving. If you are new here, welcome to the show (and again, thanks for the love) So you are probably on this page to find out the nitty & gritty of me eh? As much as I would love to brag that I am this really cool chick who occasionally fire breathes on the weekends for fun, that would be an awful not even funny lie.  Gosh, introductions- they are kinda awkward huh? No pressure.  My name is Leanne Lilly (more often than not, known and addressed as 'Lil') I am a 25 year old woman on a mission to sprinkle positivity, empowerment, fun and realness onto my fellow human beings.  I have a passion for writing and a love of over sharing with my straight up sally attitude, I embrace my voice & have no fear of sharing it. I guess I have just always had a thing for giving my opinion & expressing my advice. I am an over sensitive, big-hearted, cry baby who is majorly compassionate, understanding and giving, but who also has daily breakdowns, mood swings, & take's no shit. But I will always speak my truth. I suppose there is many aspects to this personality.  With that said it will be no suprise that this is a Mish-Mash Life Style Blog. A Blog that is home to everything and everything. You wouldn't find me in a specific genre, because I do not think you could tie my life down (let alone my personality) to one genre. This is just a Diary if you like of a truth-speaking, real talking girl. It follows my life, my feelings, my funny side (yes, I find myself funny) and all the shit that goes down in-between. And you will probably find a bit of TMI. Often. Sorry in advance.  Disclaimer: I am NOT a grammar goddess, so don't get all grammar police on my ass. (Pretty please) P.s... When I was 7 Year's old, I asked my mum what she thought I would be when I was older "A writer or something to do with writing" - I was FUMING. I wanted to be a pop star. Years on, here I am passionately writing away & loving it. Moral of the story: Mum's are always right.
