Getting lost to find yourself

I once made a comment about getting lost in the wild all day. I had just finished spending the day in nature, disconnecting and escaping responsibility. To enter that different frame of mind that always turns routine into adventure by taking in all the wonders that surround us. You could compare it with going on vacation or taking that little road trip that fills you with excitement and peace at the same time. It’s only shorter and made up of day trips instead of a string of consistent days in a row. The feeling stays the same and I think “Getting lost” is like powerful medicine we all need in order to find ourselves and enjoy a better connection. Not all will relate to this feeling and neither did the person I made the comment to. It’s not to be taken in the literal sense of losing your direction, but in a manner of escaping the daily grind.

Do you have a favorite way of getting lost?

I'm a dreamer and hopeless romantic who believes that there is always a silver lining to everything. Now, inspired by the simple life, I have learned that less is more and that we find magic all around us if we take the time to notice. Life is a journey and a process that is ever changing. We are constantly evolving in the matter of who we are as we align our stars and shed a past no longer in line with our highest self. I don't easily fit conventional norms, not because I'm a rebel, but because of resenting the pull that threatens to take me away from my true beliefs and my unique personal identity. I support the power of "Choice" and the ability for us to be the architects of our own lives. Some of these choices should have something a little wild about them as they form the moments that forever stay edged in our memory and make our hearts beat with wonder. Nobody will remember the ordinary. For myself, I'm a warrior who has fallen many times, who has gone through trails an tribulations and who is no stranger to adversity. After all, my choice remains clear, to get back up and stand stronger than ever. To recognize that it often takes our darkest moments to mold us into who we were meant to be. I have learned to trust the process and stay positive through the challenges. I trust it to be the only way to prevent my heart from hardening and allowing bitterness to creep in. I believe in the power of "NOW" as it is the only moment we truly ever have. The past is gone, unchangeable and the future hasn't happened yet. All we can impact is the current moment. Everything starts with a choice and hopefully with one that has something wild about it and may even scare you to death to execute. DO IT...I promise you won't regret it. This blog is my voice to share my Journey. If I could describe this adventure in short, I would call it "Spiritual awakening" with a yearning for "Freedom" and going after the things that truly matter. To seek a less complicated life that is stripped down from the many obligations and responsibilities that often tie us down. For me it is a life free of rules and regulations, one that allows me to escape the must expectations while jumping off the hamster wheel that is spinning faster all the time. To be on my own time and live each day to the fullest, to make it all slow down by banishing routine and unleashing my creativity/artistic values in an effort to entertain whatever subject comes to mind. And if lucky, to perhaps offer a different view to my readers, one that speaks to your soul vs. the demands of what society might expect. It is one that empowers you to be your unique self and follow the beat of your own drum. I am dreaming big as I trail blaze the path to a new life and becoming a storyteller. I find my inspiration in the little things in life, in Mother Nature and on the trail that provides the adventures and the backdrop for a book someday. My hope is to inspire "Courage" in others who might find themselves on the brink of taking that first step. This blog serves as a foundation for my collection of personal thoughts, opinions and experiences and by no means am I an expert on any topics mentioned. To my readers I would say that the universe connects us by a common thread, we all search and we all have something to say. We don't always have to meet in person to share a strong bond and people enter our path for a reason. Some stay for a short time and serve their purpose, while others teach us a lesson and help us become stronger through experience. And a few special ones remain as the treasures we hold dear over a lifetime and touch our hearts beyond means. In whatever way we are meant to be, I thank you for crossing my path and for stopping by. I hope that I have left you inspired, full of wonder and with a few "Wild Choices" to make....Hugs XO

  1. I plan I getting lost today in Cape Cod Bay on my boat. I like to drive out to the middle and just sit there. I don’t listen to music or have a conversation. I just sit and view the beauty around me and ponder whatever has been stirring my soul. I actually end up traveling to many places while I’m just sitting there

  2. Hey! I really really like this post. The whole vibe of it is so inspiring and really lifts my spirit. I try to enjoy every single day the best I possibly can. I realize as I get older time seems to get shorter. I wish we had more hours in the day just so I can get lost for hours, while exploring the beauty of the world. The blog you posted about your backyard is absolutely stunning! Thanks for sharing such a positive post ☺️🦋💙
