Wanderlust

 Photo Link for this amazing photography

~ On This Earth ~ 
Forget the things that you own
And travel almost anywhere you can go
Dance across the tree tips, set them ablaze
Soaking in their pleasant warm summer haze
While living on her streets and school city blocks
And finding streams on her while you're skipping rocks
And feeding on her touch as it will barely keep you alive
~ AvA ~

Explore. Dream. Discover.
 “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~Mark Twain 

As Mark Twain best says it, "So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails!"

Life for everyone can occasionally become stagnant from time to time, along with it's "ups & downs". The trick is to be on the watch & go out seize the opportunities when they arise. Take a chance on the opportunities when they are presented to you. Also have a desire to see and explore things you have not yet discovered. 


To get started you have to paddle out of your "safe harbor" which is your "comfort zone". We all have a comfort zone, but the problem is, is that we spend too much time in this comfort zone. How can we discover or experience anything new if we have yet to leave the "safe harbor"? The adventures don't take place in the harbor, they take place out at sea. So put up your sails to catch the winds and you'll be sure to discover and experience something like never before!

Do not just think this pertains to traveling and places, but THINK metaphorical opportunities and situations all around you. Be a wanderlust in the world of Opportunities, Possibilities, Love & Kindness = LIFE

Wanderlust: def; "a great desire to travel and roam about"
  

“One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.” ~ Henry Miller

As some would think "Wanderlust" just focuses on actually traveling and sightseeing new locations. But it doesn't, I encourage you to broaden your viewpoint and idea on this term. I'm encouraging you to become a "Wanderlust of LIFE". A Wanderlust of LIFE, has the great desire to spread love, hope, seize opportunities & challenges, & the great desire to impact others in the most positive way possible. Everyday you wake up, everywhere you go, no matter how big or small, reach out and inspire one another.

For example;
The simplest act of a "smile" :) can brighten the day for a stranger who is walking by you. A simple "HI" with a smile can completely elevate the mood of the person who receives it. I encourage you to try the simple act of smiling more. no matter how bad your day is going, the simple "smile" will not only brighten your mood but anyone else who see's it.

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” ~ St. Augustine

You live in a world full of wonders, full of God's everyday miracles. Natural landscapes of beauty, Canyons as deep and dark at night, Mountains as tall as the clouds, Rivers & streams so naturally flowing with curves because you know God doesn't build in straight lines. People of all talents, shapes and sizes, unique in his or her own way are all around you. The best time to start is NOW, be a "Wanderlust of Life"

Always have the great desire travel and inspire the people you meet along the way throughout your great journey called "LIFE". Impact everyone you meet in the most positive way possible. And always leave a positive impact on the earth, discover her beauties in your lifetime and leave it better than when you arrived.


“A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving.” – Lao Tzu

Love the quote above, A good traveler has no fixed plans on life, and no intent of stopping, because he or she should continue to impact and inspire those around you, including yourself!
