As I sit here quietly awaiting my first leg of my European Adventure 2013, I am reminded why I love this thing called travel and that there truly is an art to it if you allow the experience of traveling carry you.
Right now I have been sitting here in silence carving out words as I have written in several notebooks. During this time I have “settled” into the space of simplicity and peace. Calm, I wait and am grateful for the forced space rather than choosing to focus on the fear of not knowing or being consumed by others manufactured stress.
I realize I love the space that travel affords me to simplify, quiet my thoughts, and observe everything anew again. Truly it is not often that our lives allow us to sit for hours on end during our current 24/7 365 lives.
So I say embrace the time our journey has given us. Soak in the solitude and let peace wash over you regardless of what “reality” is throwing us. I guarantee we will all get to where we are going or need to be. After all, we have no wings ourselves nor control of weather, machines, or others.
I am choosing to allow. I am choosing to let this journey bring what I need and to be grateful for whatever that may be. I choose to be congruent with the way and let the energy of that void carry me safely and beautifully throughout this experience.
