Ever woke up to the morning that made you realize the imprecise contentment you possess? Not that you haven't pushed hard enough to endeavor the goals you had pre-set. May be it’s the wonder you do while recollecting your thoughts of whether or not you wanted the exact setup at the first place?
We are often lost in a defined path, the one which comprises of high school, co-curriculars, yearlong crushes; and an ultimate selection between being an engineer, a doctor, a lawyer or a banker etc. Although the process of getting there, the present destination, gulps in a whole life time which may or may not have been the best reflection of our virtue. A question than might easily erupt in one’s mind is how to find out whether or not this was the life I was meant to lead? The answer to it is pretty simple: by exploration, of the moment when you attain an optimal potential.
When we speak about travelling, everyone fancies a huge motor cycle rumbling across the challenging roads of high elevated mountains that are meant to test the patience and audacity of a human being. Fortunately, the horizons are a bit vaster than just a heart galvanizing expedition to the extremes. Traveling, to some, is a getaway from the hustle and bustle of their agonizing lifestyle but for some, it is the lifestyle. One must think of it being a hectic, nerve wrenching, routine of getting to point B from A but traveling rather soaks you in the realm that comprises of a serene confinement.
To travel is to seek for an answer, the one about which we contemplate for most of our lives; the one justifying our existence. Of course we have read loads about places in books, also it’s not all about visiting the major sights like The Taj Mahal or The Eiffel Tower with a sense of awe; there are transformations included i.e. the perception you had about that place and its culture or making one in case you didn't. No, you aren't wasting a major phase of your life understanding a society far away from the one you live in. It is about adding dimensions to your own perspective about things which include the way you desire to spend your own life. By visiting places we let ourselves out of the comfort zone that had made us a vulnerable entity; we get exposed to the extreme situations which might break us but eventually prove to become the life changing experiences which made us wiser than ever. You needn't to be a wanderer for the rest of your life, but a composed monarch of your own self who can take dependable decisions in life that would not just affect him but the world around as well.
At the end of the day we are all the same yet different, the only way to find out is by exploring the unexplored. It is evident that a divine intervention of such extent will not occur while you marinating in your monotonically engrossed life. So spring out from that prolonged slumber and initiate the process of indulging into everything that sounds like a real deal. Don’t just read articles about places and grumble about not getting the chance of not being there because the time is NOW, when you’re a young, energetic, careless and spontaneous being.
The idea of being a Seamless Wanderer originates from the amalgamation of both the contradicting values of traveling and a continued inflow of income required to pursue the quest. We often confuse weather to save up the whole lifetime and then backpack around the world or perform the later first and spent a lifetime of discontentment, profession wise. (as an eventual settlement with too much of experience but fewer resources doesn't sound like great idea either). So what is the best way to fulfill both the requirements of money and expedition? The idea is to not give away your day to day conscious and wander about, it is to look search for a better prospect which allows you to emerge as a pristine being, both on a characteristic and professional level .
The world is full of possibilities and undoubtedly a few of them will go just fine with the bucket list you had created as a clueless toddler. It's never too late, they say but the quicker you kickoff the more you conquer, more you break free from the inhibitions.
My legs were exasperated,
eyes craved for a familiar sight, home
But I pressed on
I had stories to live,to tell.
