one thing i know for sure... {journal entry}

i always thought i'd have everything sorted by the time i reached my late 20's. now, as i approach 27 many things are still as unclear as they ever were. i don't know how to be cool at parties, i don't know how to get my hair looking sleek, i certainly don't know what i want to "be" when i grow up. in many senses i'm just stumbling along as best as i can (as i suspect most other people are too).

one thing i do know is that wanderlust runs through my veins. i know my future is seeing new places and doing new things. as a child my family moved around alot. i got used to starting new schools, unpacking a new bedroom, and making new friends. at weekends we explored our surroundings. we got outdoors - alot - and took in the scenery. we ate local and stumbled by in foreign languages. i sometimes felt separated from my friends as my world was so much broader than theirs. but a new place, to make new friends was always on the horizon.

now i'm in charge of my own life, i can't think of anything better than continuing in that style. don't get me wrong, i'm not about to give up my job and move into a camper van. but i am working towards being in a position where i can take opportunities to travel and explore. thinking about my future family, i'm not too worried about money and i'm not too interested in success. the richness in my life is gained through the experience of wandering this planet of ours and i wouldn't have it any other way. that's one thing i know for sure.

Such a beautiful photo! And such a lovely, well-written post. You've absolutely hit the nail on the head. Here's to those who wander!

I agree. Gorgeous photo! Where is that? And is that you smack in the middle of all that great beauty?

I love this! While I haven't wandered as much as I'd like, I'm surrounded by so many people who appreciate wanderlust, which I find so inspiring. I feel like you come to appreciate more where you are because of all the places you've been.

Thanks for sharing!
