'Bon Voyage' Spiritile
"What is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" - Mary Oliver
When we’re young, the world is large, it’s open, waiting for us to step in and take up the mantle of its endless possibilities. As we age into adulthood, we unconsciously develop this inverse relationship with the world. We grow, the world and its endless possibilities shrink. Except that isn’t the case at all. Age tricks us into seeing only the opportunities in our immediate line of sight. When we realize the trick for what it is, the periphery lights up, the full range of possibilities we felt when we were young comes back into view. What we do then is up to us. — Being curious, staying delighted by the small things, focusing our attention on what really matters — that’s how we forge our wild and precious life.
