“A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving.” Lao Tzu
Do you know that feeling that eats away slowly any confidence about your current situation? That feeling that makes you gasp for a new experience. That emptiness in your stomach that makes you want to take in more than there is available at any time. The realisation that you have everything that you ever wanted but still, that thirst for a new adventure seems never satisfied. Even worse it expands until there is no other way than that of the so much desired change. Can you relate to the explorer that never grows tired of meeting new challenges? Then you could be one of us people who may never arrive at all.
After a while, the places you find will look the same. The people you meet will start to take more of your energy. The circumstances you encounter begin to tire you. Everything will be the same and eventually you will arrive at that very same place that once full of spirit you have left to conquer the world. And again, after a while, you will nurture that hollow feeling, that once before has led you leave everything behind.
Yes, your character will improve, your thinking will become even more efficient, your interpersonal skills will grow stronger and the wealth of knowledge will be overwhelming. A lifestyle choice, as many of us would call it. But is it really a choice? Are you not longing for a loving partner you can share your deepest fears with, a place that you can feel settled in, a family of your own to pass on those incredible experiences that you have had in life so far? Are you rejecting everything that is steady in your life on purpose? So what exactly makes you initiating change so frequently?
I myself thought of me as an explorer for a long time. Only recently an extended trip to Argentina had me realise that I am not any longer. I used to make changes before something else had a chance to hit me by surprise. This way I always considered myself flexible and very adaptable and to be fair I am to most events, just not to the ones that are closely connected to my life choices. I used to never settle in a relationship, in a professional position or even in myself long enough to arrive at this place of inner peace and trust that is so important to manifest all the things I was always dreaming of.
Now the real work begins. With the arrival at the place that I once left reality kicks in. Now it is time to take those steps necessary to make my dreams come true, finally.
