Wanderlust and Feeling Down
After traveling two times within less than three weeks, I feel happy and down at the same time. As I've expected, I got those melancholy feelings you get after traveling. And even though I was mentally prepared and knew this was going to happen, it still hit me pretty hard and faster than I've expected.
The last time I came home from a trip, it took almost a week for the sadness to develop, due to happy feelings and euphoria. Don't get me wrong, I also got those feelings after I got back this time, but the gloomines overweights tons. The reason for me being down and having wanderlust is probably because of the fact that I haven't anymore trips planed out for the near future as of for right now. And that panics me to a certain amount. And the other reason is probably me being unsatisfied with how my life is going right now.
Before I left for Prague, I was truly unhappy with the job I have and how it is going for me. So, naturally being parted form my routine, changed those feelings and erased them from my mind, but only for the time that I was away. The second I knew I was going back the panic started to kick in. The first morning back home, I actually woke up ready to explore the secrets and streets of the city I thought I was in, until my bubble decided to blow up. Let's just say it was weird. I know I should be grateful and happy that I even got to see those beautiful places and cities (at least that's what I always tell my friends) and I really really am, but still. I realized the importance of traveling and seeing new countries and cities. I love being at home and I love knowing that I have somewhere I can always go back to, but I also need to have future plans figured out, traveling vise. I'm scared, that I will look back on this year thinking I didn't live the chances to the fullest, that I haven't taken enough time and opportunities to experience and travel. I'm scared, that I'm not using this year how I should use it. And I just realized, that I have to use these thoughts to actually get going and start planing.

I'm sorry, if this post turned out as a bit of a rambling, but maybe you can relate to these thoughts and feelings and have tips and tricks to overcome them.
I'd love to hear your suggestions!
