Do not settle for meager dreams.

If I could tell a younger version of myself anything, that would be it.

To travel until your feet are sore and your back aches with the weight of the stories you've collected from around the world. To take risks, because at that age you truly have nothing to lose. To leap at every opportunity, every chance, every possibility of an adventure. To believe in every possibility of every future ever imagined.

That is what I wish I had known back then. That is what I strive for now, but it will never be quite the same as it could have been.
