What is it about endless horizons, wide open roads and big skies that feeds the soul?
We’ve traveled along country highways that stretch and beckon in a timeless landscape that hints of infinite adventures.
Every new road we’ve taken has lead us to, not just amazing destinations, but life changing experiences.
We’ve been side tracked and taken unplanned turns but every direction has offered something new. In fact, often the alternate routes make the journey even more fun than we ever expected.
Life’s all about enjoying those detours and side roads.
It’s been seven months since our epic road trip into the Red Centre of Australia. Would I rather be there again? Probably not. As much as I loved it there are many other places waiting for me to discover.
With the Easter break around the corner I’m looking forward to new adventures on a tagalong off-road trip into Victoria’s outback, the Big Desert National Park.
This time we’ll be leaving the camper behind and roughing it in swags. It’s new territory for me but I’m looking forward to it.
We’ll be venturing onto tracks we’ve not been on before but that’s half the fun of travel.
Perhaps in another life I was a gypsy, as adventure and wonderlust seems to run through my veins. It feels like the possibilities are endless and I never quite know what I’m going to find.
It’s a bit like my inward journey at the moment, and the steps I’m taking to reach my goals. There’s so much of the unknown in front of me and I know I have to stay focused.
Both in terms of my inner and outer world, it feels as though so many untapped jewels are waiting for me to unearth them.
Yet I’ll be honest, sometimes I’m impatient and I wish I was somewhere else but, for now, I’m focusing on where I am and what I have to do.
Here’s a video I made, in which I talk about this.
So where would you rather be? Are you content with where you are or do you yearn to be somewhere else?
Here’s a few of my thoughts on being in the moment …
- Slowing down is like an invitation to truly feel, see and sense things as they happen. Then we’re grasping the moment. The future will take care of itself and what you’re waiting for will eventually come.
- When you’re with someone give them your full attention. When someone gives you love, receive it. When you’re eating, feeling, embracing, do it with all of your senses.
- Look around right now and notice all that surrounds you. There is ALWAYS something to be grateful for, no matter how small. And when we’re grateful, we’re present.
- Step out in nature, meditate, be with people who uplift you and you won’t want to be anywhere else … living mindfully will be like a breath of fresh air.
Are you doing what you love? If not, it’s time to start.
Where else would you rather be than right here right now? Marv Levy
Here’s to those ever changing horizons and looking out for the unpredictable and surprising little joys around every corner.
I absolutely love travelling and being on the road but coming home also helps me appreciate the contrast in life. How about you?
Wishing you contentment and a grateful heart wherever you are.
Keep enjoying the journey whatever road you’re on.
In love and light.
