So when we hear the word “wander” or at least when I hear it, my mind goes to travel. I go to figuring out how I am going to see the world, how I am going to enjoy what I have been given far and wide.
But, I want to start small right now. I want to start finding wander in the every day life. The first thing when you wake up, what do you find wander in? I believe if you start the day like this, then it is going to be contagious throughout the rest of the day.
When I googled the definition for wander this came up..
“an act or instance of wandering.”
“she’d go on wanders like that in her nightgown”
How perfect? To wake up in the morning, in the middle of the night, or the middle of the day and just go, find wander in our nightgowns.
I think we can find wander in that first cup of coffee, looking into our loves eyes, waking up our children, or them waking us up. On our drive to work, that sunrise or sunset, the clouds, the fields, the architecture.
There are so many little things we can get caught up worrying about. Money, time, the future, the past, our relationships. Given, most of these things don’t seem so little and at times they really aren’t. But when you look back at your life, do you want to remember worrying about these things or would you rather remember waking up and enjoying every minute and even when you are dealing with these things, doing it in a way that it doesn’t get in the way of other amazing, wanderful moments.
I want to dive deeper in to all of these and others individually in the next few posts, so stay tuned!
I need to go buy an official nightgown now. 😉
P.S. I will be looking for “wanderers” to feature in the blog soon! Whether it be around the world, or in your own backyard! Please feel free to go ahead and email me to get the details. The easiest way is to find me on IG: @wander.people (Where you can also grab a feature) 🙂
