I know, how cliche of me to title this post as ‘wanderlust’ but it could not be more accurate.
I have this desire to explore the unknown–to be immersed in a totally new place with no plan, nowhere to be. When I traveled to Sedona this past summer for yoga teacher training, I felt this sense of freedom being on my own. Before the training program, I spent the afternoon in the town of Sedona, wandering aimlessly and learning new things on the go. And as for the teacher training, that was a whole new experience itself, something that changed me forever. (more details later!)
Ever since then, I have found a desire to continue this path. What better feeling then to be somewhere totally new, with no plan, and to simply explore? I am so excited to go to Australia in a few months to continue my journey. For over four months, I can start out a stranger and soon become a settler–who knows, I may never come back!
As for now, I am enjoying every second of being in Southern California with my mom and sister. I can’t wait to show you all the places we’ve explored! I have a new appreciation for this place, I can really see myself living here in the near future.
This desire to explore new places is shared among many, and feared by some as well. I believe that getting out of the box is the most important way of figuring out yourself and what you want from life.
