The journey for each is special because it is our own. Recently, I experienced the amazing energy that is Wanderlust. Wanderlust is hard to describe. Except, it's a mindful triathlon. Every portion of the event is dedicated to someone or something bigger than ourselves. It's larger than we can be because it's about finding our purpose.
The day begins with an "All Smiles" 5k, only running to warm up the body and rid ourselves of any negative energy before renewing our soul. "The most beautiful thing we can do for ourself and others is appreciate the moment we are in at any given time. It is always a challenge when the world pushes us in other directions. But, Wanderlust challenges you to reinvent the purpose of your being.
In every moment your strength or ability to push through the discomfort varies. However, in a race where it's a race against your own being, everyone comes in first. Every person is on a different timeline.
"Do not regret or deny your journey. It all had to be what it was in order for you to find your path." - Gurmukh
I stepped outside of my comfort zone going to Wanderlust. It's a place where you are provided with the opportunity to be completely open with your soul and that makes us vulnerable. That's scary. But I'll tell you something, it is beautiful. Not a single person was there outside of goodness. Every participant gave joy to each other because our spirits were allowed to be free. Renewal and refresh, two things every person left Wanderlust 108.
