Dear Fairy Godmother,

The world is such a big place. It makes me feel so small sometimes. I want to see all that is has to offer, but travel is expensive. How can I expand on my little corner of the world?


Dear Thumbelina,

The world is indeed large, but that’s not a bad thing. There aren’t any ways to make it smaller, and I certainly agree that travel is often out of the question, but there are things that you can do to make your small portion of it bigger. 

1. Act like a tourist in your own hometown. See what your city has to offer those who don’t live there. You might stumble across some hidden gem you never thought to explore because it’s always been there.

2. Grab some friends, get in the car, and spend a day on the road. You’d be surprised how many new things you’ll find if you look for them. 

And that’s the most important piece of advice I can give you: look for new and exciting things. You’ll find more than you thought. It’s all about attitude!

And remember, never stop dreaming!

Your Fairy Godmother
