Lately I’ve been in this tornado of thoughts. Thoughts of future, thoughts of now, thoughts of life. Where do I want to go? What are my passions?
Because the truth is, I don’t fully know who I am. I’ve got the basics in place, but so much of who I’ve been is because it’s what someone else wanted or how I was taught to be. There have been glimpses of who I am in my life, but they got lost somewhere. Now I’m finding them. These hidden doorways and windows. Pulling off the boards that cover them and letting the sunlight in.
This means tossing aside the status quo and the normal that the world teaches us. Removing the boards with notes of what life is supposed to look like to create what my life is.
In doing this I find that I often don’t know what I want, bit I do know what I don’t want. That seems to be a place to start. That’s led me to figure a little of what I do want. A simple life. A life filled with plants, paints, animals, peace, books, food, coffee, friends, travel, dreams, and nature.
When I can’t find my direction, when I’m at these crossroads on the journey to find myself… That’s when I go back to these things I know I want and to the things I know I don’t. In these moments I remember that I can take any direction I want because there’s always another trail to venture on and there’s always the ability to create my own trail.
Happy Sunday and happy life adventures.
