“We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.”
– T. S. Eliot
I could wax on for days about all the reasons I love traveling, but one reason that is somewhat unexpected is that traveling encourages me to lean in and be in my own community once I get home.
I travel – see new sights, meet new people, discover new ways of doing things. I hear stories of overcoming, of compassion and kindness. But my eyes are also opened to needs that were previously unknown to me, hurts that need healing.
I take what these new places have to offer me. Its refreshing and energizing and makes me feel alive.
And, I do my part. I connect and give what I can and pray that my impact will be lasting.
But then I come home.
And those vacations, trips, stops along the way – they all come home with me. They are all now a part of me. The new me now sees my own community a little differently – either with a new appreciation for all the blessings found at home or maybe with a fresh approach to tackle a problem. Either way, the new me is better because of what travel has to offer.
All that to say, I’ve entered a great contest put on by the travel company Jauntaroo to become their next Chief World Explorer. Will you help me win a chance to travel and share my experiences?!
