By the time you’re reading this my bare feet are probably exploring the rhythm of my engine, my eyes are probably tinting the surrounding landscape with my sunglasses, my mind is probably letting go of all the tangles inside as I let the music guide my soul, and I’m probably quite a bit along on the beginning of my newest adventure… driving my life away.
For those of you whom I haven’t shared with, today marks day one of my cross country adventure. This adventure has been a dream of mine for many years and finally I decided, what better time than now?
Several months ago a good friend of mine sent me this video with the message “thought you might appreciate this…” I watched it. I cried. Maybe that sounds silly and maybe it somewhat is to most, but to me at that moment this video is exactly what I needed. I needed to be reminded that there is so much more to life than my comfort zone. There’s more to life than routines, have-to’s and can’ts, expectations, going through the motions. There’s just more to life than how I was living.
I didn’t cry because I was sad, I cried because I don’t want to look back one day and wonder what if… to wonder if my choices were wasted on “safe.” I want to look back on my story and enjoy it every time.
Every story is different. What’s your story like? And will you enjoy it when you read it over time and time again?
I hope you’ll join me on my adventure as I share this chapter with you. Until next time, enjoy…
