Thursday Travels

Travel:

to move forward towards a given direction or path;
to journey through or over a given distance;
to follow a course or path, going from one place to another;
to cross over boundaries and borders

Travel Beyond Your Comfort Zone

The idea of movement from a known, comfortable place to an unknown, mysterious place can fill us with terror, trepidation, anxiety and fear. Simultaneously, the idea of leaping wildly outside of ourselves is lusciously stimulating and thrills us with curious, life-affirming wonder. Yet how often do we allow ourselves the gift of travel?

Comfort zones are a wonderful place to come home to but are certainly not a place to live permanently! Traveling outside of our known, expected selves keeps the juiciness of our human journey vibrant and alive.

Whether we physically travel to unknown lands, delve deeply into our interior lives, or embark upon learning to paint, to sing, to dance – we are traveling forward, opening our vision and hearts towards learning that the most valuable things in life are not our possessions but our experiences.

 Share with us your favorite travel stories — whether they took place out in the world or deep inside yourself.

      You are most welcome. Something that is difficult to do but oh so important. Once we step our toes into the unknown we are always glad we did. Here’s to traveling.
