SOLO TRAVELLER

april 21, 2018

dear kaylee,

I’ve realized something

we can have bad relationships
with words and phrases
just as we do
people and addictions

one word
I’ve always had
a bad relationship with
is ‘comparison’

in today’s day to day
comparison of one another is ever-present
with the aid of social media, advertising
and even our education system

we are put up against one another
to be judged on who’s smarter
who’s prettier
and who’s got a higher follower count

but comparison can be healthy
comparison is a useful tool for personal growth

today I compared my 2km run to my 0km run yesterday
today I compared my current priorities to the ones I had 12 months ago
today I compared my upcoming solo travel to being controlled by a job 18 months ago

I’m going to end this with a quote I read this morning

“the secret to a peaceful world is in the transformation of the individual; we do not need to love perfectly or be fully healed, we just need a critical mass of people who understand that to harm another is to harm oneself”
– yang pueblo

all my love,
kaylee
