"Do you travel a lot?"


          

Answer the question before reading any further:




































My wife and I were lamenting the fact that we never travel anymore. It seems like every time we log onto social media, all of our friends are travelling all over the place. Then I looked at my instagram and realized that our three year old daughter has been to LA, Miami, DC, Chicago, Toronto and San Juan, all since she could walk.

This isn't a stunt post. With the exception of Toronto (which was a 5 hour road trip) and Puerto Rico, all of these were conferences or family visits. They weren't vacations, so it didn't FEEL like travelling.

It's incredibly easy to discount your own good fortune you while watching the highlight reels of other people's lives. This is why no one in America thinks they're rich. They spend all of their time noticing how much richer other people are.
