Shedding vs. Experiencing

“We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us”

Is it then a dance? Life can make us feel so alive with unknown sensations. We are caught off guard by the strange and even more so by our attraction to it, by the way we can’t seem to stop…staring..

Traveling introduces thousands of smells, sounds, sights, and tastes that combine into a whirl wind of senses.

Butterflies lay patiently in slumber within our stomachs, and and the moment we are thrusted into unknown territory, these butterflies awaken, slowly to flutter, until the novelty expands. Being in a new place, meeting a new person, you see, it scares us all sometimes. We seem not to understand this odd, new feeling then where the butterflies begin piercing through our veins, hot, heated, alive! Uncertainty meets risk and here is where discovery and creation infuse to reveal us to ourselves.

But at what point are we entering new paths versus escaping our current path? We all have responsibilities one way or another. Whether it is to one’s family, one’s friends, one’s career or even one’s clubhouse hobby. One of the most important responsibilities is to yourself. Yes, to yourself. Imagine what you would do with no responsibility, and make that your responsibility. These beautiful souls of ours, housed in these strong vessels are here to experience. Experience anything, but experience something. So then it is we, who determine what those experiences become.

Maybe It is your time to experience something new.

Maybe it is your time to continue experiencing what your experiencing.

And maybe your in the midst of both.
