The fantastico impact of travel blogging led to music in my heart, and kept my spirits pepped up to navigate through life with ease!! Yes, I have experienced it. I took to blogging some time back; writing for myself initially until others appreciated and I realized that there was a wide large world with whom the words resonated to good measure.
I loved this medium of expression which allowed me to go back and ponder over how I felt on a certain day. Invariably, I would read all that I had written with a smile on my lips and often doubled up in laughter on some emotionally charged posts. My blog became my sounding board, my drawing board, my soul search where I shared thoughts and views without bothering about being judged.
When I started to blog on travel; I found connections and interconnections that I never knew existed; it opened up a whole new world. I began to notice everything in a different light, I was more grateful than ever before, certain sense of calmness prevailed, in every place I found home and all the people I met helped me learn a little more about myself. The fantastico impact of travel blogging was sinking in slowly and steadily; I was becoming more mindful than ever before. It actually cracked open my heart; allowed music into my soul which until then was confined to my ears. The best tunes came from nature; from the gurgling stream, the whistling winds, the sounds of birds and the unhurried footsteps of the docile four legged creatures. Suddenly, I had time on hand which allowed me to celebrate each day; watch the colours of the sky change at sunrise and sunset. I was noticing the flowers bloom; the riot of colours that appeared on the side walk at spring time and somewhere there was spring in my step and I was feeling peppy and excited about each moment.
I often asked myself if this shift was permanent; was I living a dream; was it actually happening to me ?? I had changed lanes I realised; from the fast paced one to a much slow paced one. The fast lane on the high way required me to move, just move and apply hard brakes when required and fuel up when necessary; a momentary pause to look away from the goal would cause an undesirable moment. The slow lane which I was cruising through now; allowed me to just be; as I navigated on the highway, often taking some unplanned exits through lanes and by lanes; pausing and stopping to admire natures creation around. I was living a different feeling !!
You guessed it right; our body is like a car; a very sophisticated machine but needs to be navigated through life so that while it takes in all the impact of the undesirable; the music in our soul is intact and we don’t forget to lead each moment as a peppy moment
