What if she isn’t lost
But simply dreaming
Visioning her future
As the rigid world spins
Pushing her out
Into the space
Where all things are possible
“Not all those who wander are lost.”
For some of us, wandering is the only answer to consistent sanity.
Wandering away from the rigid expectations of others.
Wandering away from the narrow thinking that defines what we do and how we do it.
Wandering away from the boxes of appropriateness that exist literally everywhere.
But wandering doesn’t mean we’re lost.
For some of us, though we may seem lost, floating up in the clouds somewhere, off in our worlds, we’re actually dreaming up whole new worlds in our busy minds.
Visioning new ways of being, relating, growing, leading.
And sometimes, we’re just escaping. Taking a break from the grind.
And then back to wandering.
Where are you wandering today?
