I’ve done my fair share of wandering this summer. Familiar places, new sites, and pushing out the geographical boundaries has kept me challenged and inspired over the past few months. It’s a false pretense, that if you wander, you’re lost. However, I’m finding that for me, it’s just the opposite.
Through the struggle of uncertainty and unfamiliarity, I am not lost but rather found again. I find the deeper places of curiosity, inspiration, and authenticity within me. I widen and grow in ways previously unknown, because I have embraced the challenge of risk and opportunity. As I mentioned in one of my earlier posts on inspiration, (“Living an Inspired Life”) travel for me is essential for fueling creativity and inspiration. It sparks new connections, it provides a different perspective, and it keeps me from settling in too deeply to what’s familiar and safe. Rigidity kills growth and change.
So, I’ll keep wandering, leaning into the unknown, all the while finding myself in deeper ways. Happy wandering to you too!
