It’s official: I’m in love with the desert. I didn’t realize how much I’ve missed it until I arrived here in Tucson, Arizona. I simply can’t get enough of it. Today I took to the mountains for a hike and I couldn’t help but feel so happy, so thankful, and so in awe of all the places life has taken me. By continuously living in the moment, I never know where I will be one week – or often – one day to the next. It’s thrilling.
Once I reached the top I lingered awhile on a rock and gazed down upon the valley while soaking up the warm breeze and sunshine – 80 degrees today. Wasn’t it just a few days ago I was in a winter wonderland? Yes…
I can’t get enough of traveling; I can’t get enough of being a wanderer, a gypsy. Many days all I think is: how can I keep this going? Savings will run out eventually but I mustn’t think of that right now – I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it. I’ll figure something out. Right now I’m following my bliss, and my bliss is being as free as the wind.
Life can be so wonderful if we are open and receptive and are able to find meaning in both the good and bad. If we accept what happens as God’s will. I take things lightly now. I accept what comes. I flow. I try not to think too far into the future, and I don’t dwell on the past. I sense the changes in me. The places I’ve seen, the people I’ve met along the way, and those who were willing to lend a helping hand along my journey have a special place in my heart. I’m overcome with thankfulness for it all!
