Journey of Heroes | Mountain Pass

Life is often far from fantasy, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t take every opportunity to be our own hero.

We must take the initiative to live the life we want to live, to create a present and future that makes us feel alive.

Whether that means long road trips and photographing sunsets, or building a family with those you love, or anything and everything in between…it’s our responsibility to make it happen.

Let’s listen to our souls and head in the direction our hearts are trying to take us.  Let’s be our own heroes.

Much Peace and Keep Roamin’

The Restless | Wanderer

Some of us struggle immensely with a restless soul.

We feel that life is passing us by, that we’re not living the life we’re meant to live, meeting the people we’re meant to meet, creating the things we’re meant to create.

Perhaps we’re just adventurers, who love the new sights and smells of travel.

Or perhaps it’s a little deeper than that.

Maybe we’re unhappy, our soul is in pain, and we hope and believe that this pain will stop when the circumstances are right.  We believe we’ll finally be happy if we can just find the ‘right’ city, the ‘right’ career, the ‘right’ family.

But we have to remember that our souls are in pain because we haven’t learned how to create happiness where we are, that we are restless because we keep trying to run away.

We are restless.  We need to feed our souls, and if that means new travels, hobbies, and family, then that’s okay.  But we also have to learn to feed our souls where we are and with what we have now.

Let’s move in the direction of our dreams each day, and learn to work with what we have.

Let’s keep dreaming of the horizon, but stop telling ourselves that that’s where our happiness lies.  Our happiness lies within ourselves, so let’s start cultivating it.

Much Peace and Keep Roamin’

Let’s make time to immerse ourselves is what brings us the most joy and hope, be it a quiet read on the porch, time with loved ones, or a hike among the hills and mountains.

Always on the Move

Life is always moving and changing, just look at the passing clouds, falling leaves, and around our homes.

Interests come and go, and as mentioned before, sometimes they come back around.  Old hobbies can be picked up again, flowers will bloom next year, and old friendships may be rekindled.

Let’s make the most of what brings us joy while we have it.  Life will continue to change, so let’s make the most of every moment and every interest.

Much Peace and Keep Roamin’

Sunset | Revitalizing

My love for the sky is nothing new.  There’s nothing more revitalizing than standing under the expansive sky, clouds shifting overhead, and sunlight warming my face.  Perhaps for you, it’s the refreshing wind after a storm, finishing a great book, or a much needed night out with loved ones.

Whatever inspires and renews us, let’s hold it dear, and enjoy as much of it as we can.

Much Peace and Keep Roamin’
