There comes a time for all of us when we long for something more. Sometimes we lose the magic simply because life happens. There is a place within us that is unsatisfied with the lives and worlds we have created for ourselves.
This “longing for something more” does not mean greater accumulation of possessions, titles, honors, and awards or even money. There is something in us that longs for a happiness, joy, and passion that lies beyond labels and possessions.
We all long for – an inner aliveness we all long for that passionate life. Imagine waking up each morning with an exhilarating passion that you have not felt in years. Imagine going through each day, enjoying every moment feeling that your life has purpose and meaning and that you are content.
How does one begin a life like this?
It begins with a single step.
Pack your bags, choose carefully what you bring, because packing is an important practice. Take along some humbleness and humility from the past. And grab some spirit of exploration and enchantment about what you have not learned yet. Hope to compare and consider new perspectives on the way.
Say good bye to those you are leaving behind. Don’t worry about chance encounters or where you are going. This life that you want, is yours. The people you are going to meet and the experiences you are going to have are waiting for you.
