Before publishing this post, or even writing it I uploaded the photos and decided to call this post "Wanderlust." I named the post that not only because that's the name of this gorgeous necklace, but also because traveling has been a topic of conversation lately. Then sure enough I couldn't sleep last night so I was checking my horoscope as I laid in bed. The title of my horoscope today was...believe it or not...WANDERLUST. Weird right?
Traveling has been on the forefront of my mind lately. Hence, the title. I have traveled twice in the past month (Texas & Minnesota) and although part of it is draining and tiresome, I actually really love the adventure of it all. I love seeing new things, meeting new people and exploring as much I can. I know the older I get the harder it will be to take random excursions so I am trying to do it all now that I am young / healthy / without children.
I've thought about traveling, or even moving many times. I have always wondered where I will end up when I am "settled" in life. I used to dream of owning my own farm, and living a simple life...but then other days I think about what it'd be like to live in the city, where things are constantly moving and the pace is unstoppable. I still haven't made up my mind about where it is that I am meant to be.
If I wasn't as close to my family, I probably wouldn't have thought twice about moving. It came up a few times in the past and was a possibility due to work related instances. I do however, love being close to my family, especially now that my nephews are growing up and becoming little men.
Although I don't think I would ever move too far away, I still have this urge inside me that keeps telling me I need to see more, do more, travel more. I have this yearning for new culture, and to continue learning about different places and things. I am hoping one day I can see all that I want to see, and maybe that will satisfy my curiosity for a little while. For now I will keep daydreaming and planning all of these vacations in my head, and eventually, I think it will happen.
