A realization that came early on in my life was that when the drive to explore was awakened I couldn’t sit around waiting for someone else to decide to join me ….or not . That would be too big of an invitation to frustration and regret .
Those moments arrive like a click . A snap of the fingers somewhere and suddenly the mind , heart and spirit are working together in a magnificent rhythm . Nudges of fear here and there which I question . Are you for real or are you the unreal sort ? Were they delivered to me by someone or of my own creation ?
Then there is the loneliness that we try to escape . It will chase us with the determination of three time marathon winner . There are moments when it’s best to open the door for the fear and the loneliness and learn from what’s there . It could bring some of the broken pieces back into the whole and release you from what used to hurt .
I think it’s the bits of giggles that are born unexpectedly that bring new life to the exploring and to the wanderer’s heart .
