When did we become so obsessed with knowing everything and knowing where we are going?
When did we become so afraid of the unknown?
The early explorers didn’t know where they were going.
They had ideas. They had dreams. They had an imagination.
They didn’t have maps. They didn’t have GPS.
The early settlers didn’t know where they were going.
The early pioneers exploring new frontiers didn’t know where they were going.
They believed. They believed in better. They believed in opportunity. They had faith. They hoped. They trusted.
They were bold. They were brave. They were courageous. They lived with conviction. They were persistent. They pursued. They were resilient. They persevered.
They may not have known what they were looking for, but they found.
Look what they stumbled upon.
A whole new world.
And they manually navigated.
Piece by piece they drew a map. Little by little they added to it.
This process took years – hundreds of years.
Why do we feel the need to know everything right now? Why do we feel the need to figure it out today?
Why don’t we just live, explore, and go through the natural process like the pioneers did?
I’m putting the clues together. I’m slowly drawing my map.
I’m living. I’m exploring. I’m learning. And I’m discovering. It’s a frustrating yet magical journey.
Stay curious and open my friends. There’s a whole new world out there waiting to be discovered. If we have the strength and fortitude to continue, we will find it, and it will be beautiful.
Not all those who wander are lost. Those who seek, search, and wander will find what they’re looking for.
