“Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death.”
– Anais Nin
As you may have guessed from my recent lack of presence in the travel blogosphere, I have been pretty busy lately. An unexpected shake up in my life has been occupying a lot of my time for the past week and a half. And of course being as full as wanderlust as I am, I’ve found that it relates to travel.
One reason why I travel is because it forces me to revolutionize myself. Even if the situations that arise in travel are only temporary, the results of whatever transpires return home with me. Lately, I’ve been reflecting on how I’ve learned to handle adjustments when I travel abroad, but at home I am not always as adaptable. Especially when the changes are more tangible and permanent. So while it’s upsetting that I haven’t had as much time to write, I’m looking at my current state of unsettlement as a lesson in flexibility and an opportunity to reject complacency in favor of invigoration.
