Where Is It Calling You To?
I know for me getting outside into the natural has been calling to me more than ever lately! It is like a reset and refresh all in one for my whole being. To just focus on where you two feet are taking you while enjoying the natural surroundings!
Are you into nature or not so much?
I realize nature is for some and not others! I will say I am not the biggest fan of some of the creepy crawlers. I do enjoy the fauna and flora as well as the wildlife and birdlife (from a distance of course). Thank goodness for binoculars and telephoto lenses!
What truly speaks and calls to you?
I think about communication and involvement!
Peaking your curiosity and wanting to learn more. Inspiration and motivation. Creativity. To see and to do and to be.
I think about connection and engagement!
That mind and body connection. Engaging all of your senses. Joy and happiness and playfulness. Adventuring and exploring.
I think about change and growth!
Living life to the fullest. Motion and movement, especially forward. Wandering and wondering. Experiencing and expanding.
A part of what may inspire and what speaks to you is making the time to reflect on where you are in your life! What drives you. What are you passionate about. The possibilities and opportunities are endless!
Who inspires you?
I have fond memories of going on family camping trips. Then bringing that sense of adventure as an adult and finding that partner to share in the fun. Then you have family and friends that have traveled to places that inspires you to travel there too.
I think about Teddy Roosevelt, Ansel Adams, John Muir, Georgia O’Keeffe and the pioneering adventures they went on, documented and preserved for many generations to come.
I reflect on the books I have read about nature and the great outdoors. Like Bill Bryson A Walk in the Woods and Cheryl Strayed Wild. Nothing more exciting than breaking out a map, cracking open a travel guide, etc. Love getting lost in the history too.
Here is a GREAT Question. What feels like home to you?
I think about being home as well as escaping to explore, adventure and experience. Is it home or traveling or getting outside into the natural and great outdoors. Is it the place and/or a feeling of comfort, coziness and solitude. Where do you want to go and just BE?
That calling to seek and explore! That pursuit of having someone/something to look forward to that makes you excited and motivated. That purpose of moving forward. That life of experiencing, living to the fullest and being the best version of YOU!
From traveling to staycationing to day tripping to arm chair traveling! The opportunities and possibilities. The dreams and the choices. It is SO UP TO YOU!
