There is nothing more glorious, and an accessible reminder of the freedom at our finger tips than walking out the door, hopping in the car, and getting lost, to find the yourself.
It can be easy to feel trapped or isolated, in our modern culture of contentedness, in ones work, town, community or even home. But especially in the US, land of the road trip, we can find instant adventure with the rediscovery of limitless potential, even if it is just for an afternoon, a weekend of roaming freely.
In exploring new ground, by meeting new people and gaining new perspectives, literally and figuratively, we push back the walls we may feel on our own life, in our own limits.
This is one of my favorite Saturday pastimes, or ways to use vacation time. When the road unfurls before you, and you can know you might turn left, or you might turn right, neither is wrong, both will bring adventure...! You can feel the full breath filling your lungs and the stress leaving your shoulders. You find the extraordinary in your daily life, no passport or plan required, in fact, better off without those! Just the open road, open mind and a free spirit!
