Fill your life with adventures, not things. Have stories to tell not stuff to show - Rahul Mehta In short, you did awesome things. How can you not be more confident ? How can you not be sure about your abilities ? After accomplishing so much, you're going to feel a lot more confident in your ability to achieve anything you set your mind to. More adaptable: You've dealt with missed flights, slow buses, wrong turns, delays, bad street food, and much, much more. After a while, you learn how to adapt your plans to changing situations. You don't get mad, you don't get angry; you just alter what you are doing and move on. Life throws you curve balls and you hit them out of the park. Why? Because you're awesome like that. More adventurous: When you become confident in your ability to do anything, you do anything. The sky above our head and the sand beneath our feet. Remember that life is good!
