Waking up every day, living the same life becomes exhausting. We become so accustomed to what we know that we seem to forget that so much more is out there in this world than what we are used too. We need to be reminded that there is so much more this world has to offer.
There are so many unique cultures out there. Being trapped in the same environment for so long limits our perspectives, closing us off to new ideas and values. Reading about different cultures from home is one thing, but experiencing them is another. Learning and experiencing different cultures from around the world gives us the chance to live life in someone else’s shoes. Doing this not only allows for us to build character, but teaches us to be more open minded. We begin to understand that there is beauty in the differences we share.
