This picture of me sitting, was randomly taken by my brother. It means a lot now, as I look back at the moment he was capturing. I would like to share with the meaning behind it.
We were about halfway through our 10 day road trip, someplace in Nevada. We had pulled over off the road so he could have a phone meeting. Before we pulled over we were in the middle of nowhere, driving this long, flat road. This road in between mountains. Seemed like it would be a quick drive. It turns out it was actually super long, boring and took forever. As we were leaving the mountains and entering the flat road, you could see the other side where the mountains started again. We finally got through the boring flats and started up the mountain, but he needed service for his call. We turned around and stopped as soon as we got that 4G. That's how I ended up in this spot where I was sitting.
As he had his call, I decided to relax, meditate and chill., so I grabbed my pen, journal and long board. I began to reflect on what I was thinking at the moment. When we were first passing through this flat stretch I was thinking, "This is so boring and there is nothing to look at. Get me out of here!! Get me back to the mountains I see over there!!"
As I was meditating, feeling what was around me, I found peace in the place I was sitting. This place in between the mountain, I call the flats. What I realized was The Flats is a place we need in our lives. I felt the need to write what I was feeling at that moment. The quote in the picture is what I wrote.
I am a person always on the move and need excitement in my life. I sometimes ignore the signs that I need to slow down and give myself time. I now call this The Flats. When I wrote this, it still did not click with me; that it had any purpose in my life. So, I went on with our road trip and did not even read what I had written. I spent the next 5 days snowboarding and traveling. It was non stop and I loved it.
Little did I know that what I had written about The Flats would become a significant part of my life and he beginning of a new chapter. My next post will explain how my written words became part of my life. #life #lessons #love
