Sharing my story about inner restlessness:
Restless, daydreaming of adventure, helplessly romantic and chasing an ever more glorious sunset. The story of my life so far. Perhaps this is (was) my biggest fault. Good was never enough for me, I thirst for that little bit extra, to feel my heart racing, my eyes moist with tears, my senses overwhelmed, never ending new territories, my mind to be blown over and over! But...it fades eventually, and the struggle remained. No one city I visited seemed perfect enough either.
I meditated on this a lot lately. What am I really searching for out there in those foreign places (and relationships)? She answered. I was never content with the external world, because I have never been content with myself. The external is merely a reflection of the internal. Wow. Travelling is incredible, but so is inner stillness which I can keep with me anywhere I go- or don't go! 😋 Now I've embraced the perfect imperfections in life, even accepted everything about my current self and my life as it is right now!
P.S. This photo was taken in Umbria, Italy, after a dear friend of mine drove us all night long to reach the 'piano grande’ in time for sunrise, only to discover google maps had directed us to the suburb- not the wild flower field! It was still an extraordinary sunrise! Just goes to show that we can see the beauty in wherever we are (physically and internally), as long as we have contentment from the love within. ☺️🌄
