Embracing the "Now"
Crunching and sloshing our way up Mt. Rigi in Switzerland to "just breathe" in the view. No plan, no need to rush, nothing to do but breathe...
Have you ever done something with "no plan?" In my humble opinion, Dear Readers, it's the best way to travel, cook and at times, live life. It's quite difficult. Just go somewhere or enter your kitchen or allow life to just unfold before you. No plan, no rushing and a lot of breathing. Try it sometime.
Try traveling without an itinerary. Try cooking without a recipe. Try finding a path in life with a "no agenda required" attitude. Relax into the activity you are experiencing.
If it's travel, just wander a place. Go find out what's behind the door. Go investigate that alley. Enter the church. Sit on a bench and observe. Speak with locals. Smile a lot! If you're cooking, open your pantry or your refrigerator and just allow yourself to become inspired and create. If your life is at a crossroad, have faith and know your path will rise up and you will find your "way."
Don't fight life, Dear Readers, embrace the "now."
