Saying yes to exploration

The idea of exploring is one I don’t think is valued enough. I don’t mean travelling and exploring new countries or cities, I mean exploring self.

Being able to know your own limits whilst also being able to put yourself out there and experience new things.

It’s so easy to stay within the remit of what you know because there’s comfort in familiarity. However, it’s also worth considering when you don’t venture outside of that you lose the chance to learn about yourself about and understand yourself.

When you give yourself the opportunity to explore life a little more, you might find that you don’t actually believe the things you thought were true.

In search of something

I think that most people go through the stage at some point in their lives where they’re in search of something.

You might call it finding yourself, getting to know you, self-exploration and so on.

It’s an important part of life that effects your career path, the friends you make time for, the people you date, what you do in your free time etc.

The fascinating thing is that when you go out to find yourself you have no idea what you’re looking for. You’re just searching and perhaps it’ll begin with something new and uncomfortable because surely you can’t find yourself in the ordinary.

But eventually I think for a lot of people the breakthrough comes in small moments.
