Wanderlust

wan·der·lust

noun

a strong, innate desire to rove or travel about.

The word basically sums up my entire thought process at the moment.

I leave the country in T-11 days, and I wasn’t very excited until right now.  Usually at this time, I’d be packed already (yeah, I’m an eager beaver) with a full itinerary in hand, excursions planned to the 9 with a copy sent out to everyone on the roster and their Emergency Contacts.

This time?  I didn’t even go shopping.  I have no idea what we’re doing sans laying out on the beach and getting black, and frankly, I don’t care.  It’s kind of the stance I’ve since taken on my entire life actually.  Let go and let God, throw caution to the wind, que sera sera.

I haven’t been able to board a plane since starting treatment, and ever since the SECOND I finished that I’ve been staring at flights to anywhere and everywhere.  I want to see the places I’ve never been given the chance to and I want to do it all now.  Right now.  At this very second.

Wanderlust.  I have a strong desire to explore and wander the world.  I also have the same feelings about my own city, and myself.   I am a San Francisco native that drove down streets I’ve never been on last night.  I saw a view that was nothing short of breathtaking and did it with someone who shares the same passion for exploration as I do.  I’ve put myself in life situations as of late that the old me would have never done…. And I find myself intwined in a love affair…. with myself.

Sometimes I get to being absolutely ridiculous.

And it’s ok.  Because I’m learning.  I’m exploring.  And I’m wandering to the edges of my boundaries, AND BREAKING THEM.

I am in a state of wanderlust. Walk with me to the end of the rainbow, or just point me in the right direction.  Plus, I think I just like to say the word.  =)
