The notion of "exploring" can call you out of routine and into all that is around you
I'm not just talking about grand traveling expeditions. While travel can be profound and illuminating, don't think that experiences you need are out of reach. Especially if you are a working mom (like me!) who doesn't feel like travel is really in the cards right now. Explore from where you are. Do new things and projects. Explore your current environment, maybe take a different route to work or try a new restaurant. Shake up the typical and ordinary.
Reflection for today: what do you think of when you hear "explore"? What qualities are brought out when you are exploring - curiosity? Excitement? Play?
Someone with a balanced view of exploration is driven by the need for freedom and learning about the world around her. Conversely, an unbalanced need to explore everything, someone who is constantly bouncing around could be ungrounded and thus unstable - that is, they don't have that home base or a foundation to fall back on.
However, if you are struggling to be present, constantly moving may be an addictive way to deal with that restless energy. You may not yet be a fan of meditation, but I would recommend time to yourself with no distractions to see what needs to be addressed in your life.
I'm a motivated, self-starting marketer and working mom looking to make a difference in the world - one story at a time.
