UP NORTH

I have fully taken it to heart that Saturdays are for adventures.

For about the past month, every weekend has been filled to the brim with explorations + endeavors, in lands far far away from my college campus. This weekend, I road-tripped to the shore of northern Minnesota. 

Being on the move is something that fills me up with energy and joy. As we awoke starry-eyed on that bright November morning, I became fully aware of my current state. I think that it’s important to slow down sometimes and take note of where you are, and realize that it doesn’t have to be extravagant to be wonderful. I think that it’s important to acknowledge that you are a mix of sort-of-sleepy and over-caffineated. That you are not in the mood to talk, but could really use an extra-hot chai, with an extra sprinkle of cinnamon. That maybe this week was stressful, but you got through it, and you are here, living today, and you survived. And you will survive again, because you are a beautiful, created, living, breathing, BEING. And because we were indeed created to BE, may we BE with all our might.

And I will meet anyone who courageously meet me there.
