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’

Sense of Progress

Sometimes it feels like we’re going nowhere, leaving us frustrated.

We may feel powerless, stuck.  Sometimes we have no idea what direction to head towards, and that’s even more frustrating.

I’ve been feeling quite stuck lately, which has shown me how important it can be to stick with something throughout the chaos.  That way, even when actively pursuing different paths, we have one thing that we’re consistent with.  We get our sense of progress.  We feel less like we’ve wasted weeks or months.

Plus, when we feel stuck, time can pass agonizingly slow.  Having an interest we continually work on and update (like a blog) can help us keep our sense of time.  We find that what felt like weeks was just a few days.

Let’s always move forward, stay positive, and remember that life’s meant to be explored, whether we know where we’re going or not.

Much Peace and Keep Roamin’
