Start Exploring | Winter Valley

It can be easy to start feeling trapped and like we’ll never be able to travel.  We want to see the world and experience new things, but let’s remember it doesn’t have to be on a large scale.

Let’s start exploring now, and experiencing what’s available to us at this moment.  Let’s keep dreaming of Scotland, Iceland, and France, but let’s get out today and see what gorgeous and new views are already at our doorsteps.

The beautiful thing about the world is that it’s different every time we look at it.

Let’s enjoy the present while we hope for the future, and not leave travel and exploration for ‘someday’.

Much Peace and Keep Roamin’

Hope is in the Clouds

It’s incredibly important to not only know what inspires and heals us, but to let ourselves be inspired and healed.

The sky is immensely calming and fills me to the brim with hope, but that doesn’t mean I enjoy its beauty as much as I should.

Whether you get your hope and inspiration from running, reading, or spending time with good friends, don’t forget or delay actually enjoying these activities and their benefits!  Let’s make time for what heals and inspires us!

Much Peace and Keep Roamin’

Moving Forward

Spring Snow

Spring Snow

The first day of Spring was celebrated indoors, while snow fell all day outside.  When it comes to small things like weather, or big things like our jobs, let’s try to remain positive without becoming attached to expectations.

Things can easily go another way.

It’s in the Clouds

Calm Dark Clouds

Hope is in the clouds.

Gazing at the sky and appreciating the clouds and colors always brings a feeling of hope and refreshment.  Let’s step outside, breathe some fresh air, and look at the limitless sky.

The world’s a big place, and we can go anywhere.

Lies of Depression

Blue Moon Sunset

Depression can fill our minds with lies.

We tell ourselves nothing will ever change.  We can feel the world growing smaller around us.  We have no options, no chance to grow or place to escape.  Our current pain, situation, and place in life is all we’ll ever know.

These negative thoughts can run through our minds unchallenged, because we’re hurting so much we believe it.  We can’t remember happiness.  We can’t remember that life is constantly changing.  We can’t remember that we have options, that there’s hope.

Even when we’re feeling at our lowest, there is always hope, even if we don’t believe it.

Let’s get help when we need it, laugh as often as we can, surround ourselves with inspiration, and do our best to stay strong when we’re at our weakest.

Much Peace and Keep Roamin’

Clouds

Clouds and Hope

Clouds are special.

Not only are they beautiful to gaze at, but they’re a symbol of hope.  They remind me how immense the world is, and how there’s so much to see and explore.

Let’s spend more time outside and gazing up at the clouds.

Much Peace and Keep Roamin’

Hope

Having hope for the future is incredibly important.

Happiness can definitely take work, and I feel that having a positive outlook, hope, and dreams for the future are necessary.

With no hope for the future, we feel stuck, stranded, trapped.  We feel like nothing will ever change, that happiness will always be out of reach, and that nothing has purpose.

Hope is so important.  When we feel down and trapped, let’s remember that we can be anything.  We can go anywhere.

Let’s remember to dream and hope for the future, and all the happiness and positivity to come.

Much Peace and Keep Roamin’
