hi everyone, welcome to my second installment of musings! we’re leaving monday for a two week trip to the east coast and the anticipation has got me thinking…
i love traveling. when i have a trip on the books it’s just about all i can think about. it consumes me, i can spend hours daydreaming about what i’ll see, eat, wear. the people i’ll meet, the people i love who i’ll visit. i get excited for the smells, sounds and tastes that will be new to me. the airports, trains, planes, taxis, and hotel beds, i love it ALL. but the thing i love most is the feeling i get when i’m in the midst of it. i feel somehow more alive, more myself, more open to what life brings me.
traveling, for me, is that thing that really moves me. it’s what stirs the creativity inside me, it feeds the adventurous part of my spirit, it expands my sense of self to encompass the entire world rather than my tiny little at-home world. i feel most like myself when i’m away from home and outside of my comfort zone, if that makes sense. it’s one of the most fulfilling things that i do.
and so i wonder, why not more?
what is it that moves you, that really makes you feel ALIVE? is it a part of your everyday life? should it be? in writing this i’m reminded that we’re truly responsible for crafting our lives, shaping daydreams into realities. so, i’m going to be spending more time day dreaming and more time crafting. here’s to all of us having the lives of our wildest imaginations! xx- sarah
