10 Reasons to Date a Girl Who Travels

10 Reasons to Date a Girl Who Travels

Traveling is one of the most rewarding and exciting things you can possibly do, so it makes sense that dating people who make travel a priority is definitely a good idea. A girl who travels is someone you want in your life, and if you need more convincing, read these 10 reasons to date a girl who travels.

1. She’ll never bore you.

Girls who travel are the most exciting partners because they’re never boring—ever. Whether she’s trying to get you to go on another adventure with you or she’s recounting one of her favorite stories from her backpacking trip last summer, there’s never a dull moment with her.

2. She knows who she is.

Travel has a way of letting us find ourselves. A girl who travels is sure of herself and knows herself backwards and forwards. She’s not one to second guess herself or hesitate.

3. She’s up for anything.

Being a traveler primes you for being up for—and prepared for—anything and everything. The more exciting and new the experience, the better. This girl is game for whatever you think up.

4. She’s spontaneous.

One of the best things about travel is that it allows the traveler to be totally spontaneous. Traveling between countries is often very easy (and cheap) in some parts of the world, such as the European continent, so you’re allowed to be as spontaneous as you like. Girls who travel are likely to decide to do something at the last minute. And, if we’re being honest, that makes whatever you’re doing twice as fun!

5. She’s independent.

Travelers, in general, have to be independent and rely on themselves. Girls who travel aren’t going to be clingy or high maintenance. Travel teaches us that independence is the only way to be truly happy and free while abroad.

6. She’s smart.

Regardless of how much education she has, she will be smart. There’s no way to travel extensively without a lot of knowledge and common sense. She’s not ditzy, and she’ll always think through her problems. Travel can sometimes seem like one big vacation from start to finish, but it’s often a lot of hard work. She’s been there and she’s got the smarts to tackle any problem.

7. She’s active.

No one who travels extensively is the kind of person who loafs around the house. This girl wants to do something all the time, whether that’s go biking, hiking, swimming, or just take a walk around the neighborhood. She’s always ready to go. Be sure you can keep up!

8. She loves trying new things.

Traveling is all about getting to experience new places, cultures, foods, and adventures. So it stands to reason that well-traveled girls love trying new and exciting things. And that means you’ll be trying new things as well. There’s never a dull moment!

9. She’s well spoken.

To communicate effectively in other countries and with all the people one encounters while traveling, a person has to be well spoken. A girl who travels knows how to say what she means and how to say it well.

10. She’s never going to want to stop traveling.

The ultimate reason to date a girl who travels? So you can travel with her! There’s nothing like traveling with a romantic interest, and the experience will likely serve to strengthen your relationship. Not to mention, this girl knows what she’s doing and is bound to enhance the experience with her knowledge. You’re in for a wild ride, but it’s certainly worth it. And if you are one of the lucky ones and you find yourself with a girl who travels, do your best to give her yourself completely. After all, she already has the world.

7 Ways to Get Rid of Negative Energy and Become Positive

7 Ways to Get Rid of Negative Energy and Become Positive

Negativity affects ourselves and everyone around us. It limits our potential to become something great and live a fulfilling, purposeful life. Negativity has a tangible effect on our health, too. Research has shown that people who cultivate negative energy experience more stress, more sickness, and less opportunity over the course of their lives than those who choose to live positively.

When we make a decision to become positive, and follow that decision up with action, we will begin to encounter situations and people that are also positive. The negative energy gets edged out by all positive experiences. It’s a snowball effect.

Although negative and positive thoughts will always exist, the key to becoming positive is to limit the amount of negativity that we experience by filling ourselves up with more positivity.

Here are some ways to get rid of negativity and become more positive.

1. Become Grateful for Everything

When life is all about us, it’s easy to believe that we deserve what we have. An attitude of entitlement puts us at the center of the universe and sets up the unrealistic expectation that others should cater to us, our needs, and our wants. This vain state of existence is a surefire way to set yourself up for an unfulfilled life of negativity.

People living in this sort of entitlement are “energy suckers”–they are always searching for what they can get out of a situation. People that don’t appreciate the nuances of their lives live in a constant state of lacking. And it’s really difficult to live a positive life this way.

When we begin to be grateful and appreciate everything in our lives–from the small struggles that make us better, to the car that gets us from A to B every day–we shift our attitude from one of selfishness, to one of appreciation. This appreciation gets noticed by others, and a positive harmony begins to form in our relationships.

We begin to receive more of that which we are grateful for, because we’ve opened ourselves up to the idea of receiving, instead of taking. This will make your life more fulfilling, and more positive.

2. Laugh More, Especially at Yourself

Life gets busy, our schedules fill up, we get into relationships, and work can feel task oriented and routine-driven at times. Being human can feel more like being a robot. But having this work-driven, serious attitude often results in negative and performance oriented thinking.

Becoming positive means taking life less seriously and letting yourself off the hook. This is the only life that you get to live, why not lighten up your mood?

Laughter helps us become positive by lightening our mood and reminding us not to take life so seriously. Are you sensitive to light sarcasm? Do you have trouble laughing at jokes? Usually, people who are stressed out and overly serious get most offended by sarcasm because their life is all work and no play.

If we can learn to laugh at ourselves and our mistakes, life will become more of an experiment in finding out what makes us happy. And finding happiness means finding positivity.

3. Help Others

Negativity goes hand in hand with selfishness. People that live only for themselves have no higher purpose in their lives. If the whole point of this world is only to take care of yourself and no one else, the road to a long-term fulfillment and purpose is going to be a long one.

Positivity accompanies purpose. The most basic way to create purpose and positivity in your life is to begin doing things for others. Start small; open the door for the person in front of you at Starbucks or ask someone how their day was before telling them about yours.

Helping others will give you an intangible sense of value that will translate into positivity. And people might just appreciate you in the process.

4. Change Your Thinking

We can either be our best coach or our best enemy. Change starts from within. If you want to become more positive, change the wording of your thoughts. We are the hardest on ourselves, and a stream of negative self talk is corrosive to a positive life.

The next time you have a negative thought, write it down and rephrase it with a positive spin. For example, change a thought like, “I can’t believe I did so horribly on the test–I suck.” to “I didn’t do as well as I hoped to on this test. But I know I’m capable and I’ll do better next time.”

Changing our self-talk is powerful.

5. Surround Yourself with Positive People

We become most like the people that we surround ourselves with. If our friend group is full of negative energy-suckers and drama queens, we will emulate that behavior and become like them. It is very difficult to become more positive when the people around us don’t support or demonstrate positive behavior.

As you become more positive, you’ll find that your existing friends will either appreciate the new you or they will become resistant to your positive changes. This is a natural response.

Change is scary; but cutting out the negative people in your life is a huge step to becoming more positive. Positive people reflect and bounce their perspectives onto one another. Positivity is a step-by-step process when you do it solo, but a positive group of friends can be an escalator.

6. Get into Action

Negative thoughts can be overwhelming and challenging to navigate. Negativity is usually accompanied by a “freak-out” response, especially when tied to relationships, people and to worrying about the future. This is debilitating to becoming positive and usually snowballs into more worry, more stress and more freak-outs.

Turn the negative stress into positive action. The next time you’re in one of these situations, walk away and take a break. With your eyes closed, take a few deep breaths. Once you’re calm, approach the situation or problem with a pen and pad of paper. Write out four or five actions or solutions to begin solving the problem.

Taking yourself out of the emotionally charged negative by moving into the action-oriented positive will help you solve more problems rationally and live in positivity

7. Take Full Responsibility, Stop Being the Victim

You are responsible for your thoughts.

People that consistently believe that things happen to them handicap themselves to a victim mentality. This is a subtle and deceptive negative thought pattern. Phrases like “I have to work” or “I can’t believe he did that to me” are indicators of a victim mentality. Blaming circumstances and blaming others only handicaps our decision to change something negative into something positive.

Taking full responsibility for your life, your thoughts and your actions is one of the biggest steps in creating a more positive life. We have unlimited potential within to create our own reality, change our life, and change our thoughts. When we begin to really internalize this, we discover that no one can make us feel or do anything. We choose our emotional and behavioral response to people and circumstances.

Make positive choices in favor of yourself.

“Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habit. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny” ― Lao Tzu
