The day has finally arrived. Today I am starting The Happy Nomad Tour.
It’s hard to believe. Time has gone by so quickly. But I guess that’s a reminder not to let life slip through your fingers.
For once I’m taking one thing at a time and right now I’m just focusing on Houston. I’m excited to visit my awesome friend. While in Houston I’ll mentally prepare for Mexico and figure out what to do and where to go until the beginning of September. In September I’ll be in Queretaro, Mexico. I’ll also try to find an opportunity to volunteer in Houston.
Though I haven’t had too many “What the heck am I doing??” moments yet, I know I will have them in Houston as I think about what’s to come. It’s only natural. I fear the unknown like everyone else. But I know this is what I have to do and I won’t let self-doubt get me down!
With that, I will share a song that should have been one of my anthems. I truly believe if everyone pursued his or her passions in life the world would be infinitely better as a result. Gandhi said “Be the change you wish to see in the world” and MJ says “If you want to make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and make a change.” How can that not be true?
Michael Jackson’s video below is difficult to watch at times, but it does a great job of showcasing many of the world’s problems, the great leaders who enacted change, and the love that unites us all.
Thanks for checking in and I’m looking forward to sharing all the experiences I encounter while traveling!
About Adam Pervez
In mid-2011 I left my cushy corporate job and took the plunge into a life incorporating my passions of traveling, writing, volunteering, learning, educating, and telling stories. I study what happiness means to others, offer what I can from my engineering/MBA background as a volunteer, and try to leave each place better than how I found it. Read more.
