Zest for LIFE

I had lost my zest for living. I didn’t fully even realize it for awhile, and then it took me some time to get centered enough to find my way through.

It wasn’t until not too long ago I was laying in bed pondering and released I hadn’t had anything I had been truly excited for or fully looking forward to in a long time. It might have looked that way from the outside, but I didn’t feel it on the inside. I was merely shooting for what was right in front of me and trying to make this living in the moment thing work without really having anything I was working towards.

I so badly wanted to have the go with the flow mentality and just let life take me where it did. And well, I tried that for awhile. And darn it did take me places that’s for sure. But I wasn’t able to feel stable and steady anywhere I went or with anything I did. I met some cool people and I did some cool things, which one day I just might go back and experience again, however Ill wait until I have more of a grounding position to start from.

I learned I was able to cultivate and maintain that free flowing mentality much easier when I had something that excited me and pins on my map for future adventures to look forward to.

Once again ~ that beautiful balance between structure / stability and freedom.

In moments where we feel lost; where there’s more uncertain things in our world than certain. Where planning out our days seems awful, and making plans with others feels like too much of a tie down ~ just remember. We live in a beautiful world of equal opposites. Structure means freedom. and Freedom comes from structure. We release that when we find structure in doing the things that excite us and to have something amazing and fun to look forward to.

We are the ones that put the zest in life. And once we do, life will add some of its own zest in for us as well too.
