Whether it is a conscious endeavor or a subtle intention running in the background, I believe that we are all searching for our place and meaning in the world. Today I am intrigued, pondering about this underlying current to everything that we do.
What does this journey look like for each of us? How does it affect our daily actions and realizations? For some it is wisdom that unfolds almost effortlessly, like a master of their craft all the puzzle pieces slip into place with little trouble; and for others it is like trying to keep a bunch of marbles in place on a flat board while driving down a bumpy road.
Sometimes I feel that we can get a bit too wrapped up in the search, rather than simply recognising our profound affect upon the world around us in each moment. This autumn and winter I found myself getting consumed by that desire to have answers and meaning to what my path should be.
I sent out many feelers in several directions, everything from verbal inquiries to resumes sent for different positions. I kept hitting dead ends each direction that I turned growing more and more frustrated and persistent in the search along one specific path. I finally metaphorically threw my hands in the air and decided to not try any more. Of course after that moment things began to fall into place, but in a totally different direction.
These might both seem like miniscule accomplishments to most, but I found that it was simply a matter of taking steps forward that build the momentum to start the whole thing rolling. I can feel a renewed sense of excitement and am once again realizing that each and everything that I do adds value to this world, just as we all do. It is just a matter of focusing my intent in what ever direction I want to explore and share.
I feel that 2015 is going to be a grand year for me and many others, it shall hold new horizons and more excitement of passions explored. I am reminded with more regularity that there is little point in the act of searching, and great value in simply living your passions and following your truths.
Follow along as I share highlights of the adventures that bring me such joy in life, and the wisdom they have imbued into my being.
