Thursday Travels

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

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

Comfort zones are a wonderful place to come home to but certainly not a place to live! 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.
