Following in her Footsteps

Irene left town several months ago and has been traveling the world with her family. That is the focus of her blog, The Travel Creatives. But it isn’t just a travel blog. Irene blends her love of travel with a curiosity about the culture of creatives. She looks for people who are living their lives with flair and makes mini-documentaries about them.

But, that isn’t all. You see, I think those two things might be enough to read Irene’s blog, but what is the kicker for me is that her story is inspiring. She is making her dreams come true.

Wishcasting Wednesday: What I Wish to Step Into

As I was sitting on the bench at the beach in Washington, I wondered what it would be like to live my life as if I were always in that moment. A moment of being fully present. A moment of pushing a bit outside my daily routine. A moment of engaging nature, of moving more, of eating more naturally. A moment of collaborative creativity. A moment of full breaths and deep, well-felt relational intimacy with those around me. (Big moment, huh?) Now each of these things I, of course, do to some degree in my life. But I wanted to know what it would be like to live my perception of a Northwestern life while I was home in the South.

So…I snapped this picture to remind me of my wish….it is perfect for this week’s Wishcast. Continue reading
