“He said he’d give her the world, She said she had her own.”

“He said he’d give her the world, She said she had her own.”

~Anonymous

I think the quote is very inspirational (call me cheesey if you must), but the message I get from it inspires a “take charge” attitude, and if you take the initiative, you can really be proactive in creating your world around you.

You Can Only See As Far As You Think

This picture pokes fun at the “ignorance is bliss” concept, but it also embodies a philosophical challenge to broaden your horizons by becoming always open and willing to learn. I constantly love trying new things, whether that be new products I see in the grocery store (I do this ALL the time, the marketing gets me every time) or unusual foods and traveling to new places. I’m constantly wanting to learn how EVERYTHING works. It can be a crutch sometimes when I’m doing research (because I’ll want to know every single detail of each topic) but hey, I wouldn’t have started my bucket list without this kind of mantra, and I wouldn’t want to miss out on the rest of what the world has to offer. ♣

About Kailee Crawford

I'm an Oregon-born travel addict living in New York making the most of my vacation days. I started this travel blog to keep track of my bucket list and it's morphed into a journal of my adventures and recommendations for things to see, do, eat and drink. My hope is that I can help other travelers find their way. I want to try everything once and to live a life without regrets or missed opportunities. I call my philosophy on life the "the death bed philosophy" - I want to be laying in my death bed reflecting on all of the things I've done and seen in this world, not the things I wished I had done. It's not meant to be morbid, just a reminder to take risks, go out of your comfort zone and live life to the fullest. ♫♫♫♫♫ "You were only waiting for this moment to be free" --- "Blackbird" by The Beatles This quote is undoubtedly my favorite quote because it's a reminder of the infinite opportunities available to us. That in each moment there is an opportunity to find true happiness, and a sense of freedom when you're doing what you love. Freedom to explore, to create, to improve oneself, and to find fulfillment even during the 9 to 5 grind. ♫♫♫♫♫ I'm an incredibly pensive person with a wide variety of interests. In addition to traveling, my guilty pleasures include wine, food, music, art, languages and history. I grew up a nerd, watching The History Channel and reading The Lord of the Rings with my Dad. I'm driven by my pursuit of knowledge and growth and most passionate when I'm able to be creative. ♫♫♫♫♫
