I think back to getting LASIK in 2014. The surgery itself took less than a minute, and as soon as they pulled the machine away from my face, I saw the dots on the drop ceiling panelling and started crying. When I went to the movie theatre, I felt joyfully motion sick because my peripheral vision was actually sharp at every angle. I could see my toes in the shower and my clock next to my bed. I could swim and look underwater. Sure, I wasn't blind before then, but I had no idea that the world could be so full and vibrant.
That's how I feel about travelling. My corner of the world is amazing in a multitude of ways, and I'd be just fine if I never left it. But then I step out a bit and find that my imagination couldn't have ever created the depth of what I'm capable of seeing, doing, and feeling. It's an exploration of the unknown.
So as I sit on a rooftop patio looking out to the Andaman Sea, I'm reminded that we are limited only by the boundaries we put on our imagination. I'm dreaming big and open to it being even bigger and easier than I can imagine!
