1000 Flowers for the Planet - #384 Travel an Unknown Road
It’s very easy to stay where it’s safe, to do the same thing day in, day out, and keep with the familiar. People do that because it is the easy road, the road with fewer challenges and one that makes them feel secure. I want to challenge everyone to travel an unknown road – to see what you might find, to discover something different, to expand your own skills and knowledge, and to grow as a person.
If you’re constantly grumbling about your job, go and seek a new job or train to do something different. You could gather a huge new knowledge base that might change your life completely. If you’ve never been outside your city or state, plan a road trip to literally travel an unknown road, and go on an adventure. See more of your own country and meet people who live in different areas, with different lifestyles, and learn how many ways there are to do things. Change the way you normally do things by challenging yourself – reverse the order, switch things around, stop doing something you know you shouldn’t be doing, and start doing something you know you should.
Sometimes we need to travel an unknown road to awaken ourselves to what’s around us. We take a new route and open our eyes to the beauty and majesty of a different place. We can also awaken ourselves to the problems around us, and with that new knowledge, try to make a difference. Do it. The planet needs you to.
