The Trouble with Travel.


The trouble with loving to travel and explore new places is that you are always dreaming of the next adventure, the next place to explore. With so many places to think about one begins to get restless with where they live. In a few months it will mark 5 years since I’ve moved to Oklahoma, the longest I have stayed in one place since college. I’ve loved living in Oklahoma, but as I look back at the last 5 years I find myself wondering what I have accomplished here. And if there is anything keeping me here.

I’ve always wanted to make a difference, to have an impact on the world I live in. To effect the people around me, change the world I live in. I find myself realizing that if I chose to leave Oklahoma there is nothing I would be leaving behind, I haven’t made the connections with people, I haven’t made an impact on the place I live which leaves me wondering do I stay or do I move on? Is my restlessness due to my love of travel and seeing new places, or because of not having accomplished the things I once dreamed of?

There are places that I would love to live, to explore, things I want to see,change, experience and now it just takes finding the next step, wthether that be Oklahoma, North Carolina or maybe even London I don’t know, we will just have to see what the future holds for me and my restless spirit.
