I love to hike.  Most of the time I have no real destination in mind.  In fact, my favorite hikes involve just wandering in whichever direction catches my eye.  I’m not exactly sure why this particular way of exploring nature fills me up so much?  But it does.
Sometimes I think that we need to give ourselves more opportunities to explore life in the same way.  So much of our time is committed to achieving goals, meeting expectations… keeping deadlines.  This can leave little time for the heart and mind to simply explore.

I don’t really do New Year’s resolutions.  I do, however, hope to spend more time in the coming year… just exploring.
