Getting Found


 

-------------------------


Its been a while since I’ve jotted my thoughts but on my last trip overseas, I was flooded with emotion and felt the desire to write down what it was that I was feeling. My intention being to express these feelings with those people that I hold dear while paying homage to the breathtaking and inspiring places that these travels led me to...

Building this brand has been the most incredible experience and has introduced me to people and places that I never thought I’d see. Without the burning drive to continually Step into the unknown, or “get lost” ...I whole heartedly believe that I never would have truly found myself.

 Getting Lost, traveling and discovering one’s self is the ultimate educational experience, an education that can’t be taught in schools, in an online course or audio books. Its an immersive experience , a hands on activity that can only be described through personal discovery as it unfolds differently for everyone.


The places you go, people you meet and the persona you must adopt in order to adapt and truly immerse yourself into the different cultures, experiences and environments is what stretches you, its what transcends your normalities in life and births an aliveness that no money could ever buy.

These experiences go beyond continual repetition of the known, of the clockwork like routines experienced during your usual scheduled programming… Its this stretching that, while being extremely challenging at times, is also humbling, eye opening and awakens an unequivocal and incomparable feeling of vitality. It brings forth a mindset of curiosity and wonder, picking up and laying down the next puzzle-piece of your journey through life.

I’ve noticed that people everywhere around the world; in foreign places and born into different cultures inherently desire the same things as you or I. Their desires just manifest in different forms… We are all cut from the same cloth, we just have a different way of living… Its these universal values that bring connection.


Diving into these unknown territories, engaging with these similar creatures, learning to do things in new and creative ways, really opens up your mind to all that is possible. It brings forth inspiration and opens the mind to new ways of thinking.. As I said, you can’t get taught this in school, through books or documentaries, it happens through experience...

The feeling of vitality when living in the unknown encompassed by the curiosity of what’s next is what sparks a thirst to continue exploring. Like the pioneer, adventuring through unchartered waters towards his destination, we must strive to be fully awake, fully in wonder, living in sheer excitement and optimism of what is over the next wave. We must embrace the challenges, welcome the differences and cherish the similarities… Because being stuck in the wheel of our everyday routines, living life on auto pilot, our minds don’t have to think outside the box.

When we are rarely challenged, this creates an inability to experience randomness and spontaneity. We find ourselves desiring different results but doing the same things…. As Einstein said “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.”

We’re not insane, we’re just looking for the courage to truly break free and feel alive. Its time to wake up and take back your life and it’s wonder...it’s time to take that journey, whatever it is for you...
