Stray away from the norm for once- get in touch with your other side. Get to know people from different places, who speak different languages, who live different lifestyles than the one you do. It’s nice to take yourself out of your own shoes for a little while and explore in the shoes of someone else. Find people who are willing to take these journeys through life with you- to laugh, explore, and travel with you. Get to know the world and get to know yourself in a different perspective. And in these journeys, you’ll see things that aren’t so pretty- people living on the streets, people dying of illnesses, violence, and so much more- and at that moment, be proud of who you are and the blessed life you’ve so fortunately been given. Explore and grow.
