Wandering & Wondering ♥

They say life's an adventure after you graduate, so where will our paths eventually lead us? My adventure has been slowly unraveling ever since I've been done with school. From taking a year off to adjust to these changes, meeting new people, travelling, and ultimately learning more about myself. It has been quite the time of growth, embracing what life has to offer, as well as a constant learning experience.

We each have a different path. A different plan for our lives. When I catch up with old friends, it always surprises me to see how fast these changes occur in everyones' lives. Some of my friends stayed the same, while others move on to bigger, and better things. Some are stuck in a rut. Some have no idea what to do with their lives. Some are still trying to find themselves.

Sometimes I wish I could fast forward and see how things are going to unravel in my life. But then I realized where would the fun and excitement be in that? I also think that a lot of us tend to get tired of the lives we're living at some point, and yearn for that change. Any change. Always looking for something more. As long as something is different from our normalcy. We wander, wondering what we'll eventually find. Hoping and wishing that we'll receive that coveted moment of clarity.

To be honest, I was hoping that my trip would give me some answers I've been seeking. Maybe I'll find them, but it's also quite possible that I will not. Maybe it'll be the deciding factor of whether I eventually choose to move. Who knows?

But I'll say this. With everything that I've done, I've never forgotten to take a moment, and enjoy the view. Appreciate the world in front of me. Absorb it's beauty, the culture, and the view. Be it the beautiful sunrise accompanied by the lovely fresh morning air, or the Canucks creating a sea of cheering supportive fans in Vancouver. (I'm hoping we take it home with Game 5!! Go Canucks go!) Live life. Believe in something greater. Start an adventure you can call your own. Because when you do, all that wandering and seeking to find something better, will eventually fade.

Very inspiration post Tessa. I have these feelings and thoughts all the time. I wish I traveled more after I graduated, before I started working. It kind of sucks because when you have the time, you don't have the funds. BUT once you have the funds, you no longer have time. {*sigh} Bittersweet.

I think in order to be happy and now feel bored is that you have to find yourself and love yourself for who you are. Also, happiness has a lot to do with how you think. If you're constantly negative and thinking about the past and mistakes you'll always be miserable.

KEEP TRAVELING AND ENJOYING LIFE! I hope you find what you're looking for. =]
