A Road Trip for Your Soul

I find myself sitting alone in a typical Mexican road stop café, in the heart of Cartel Country. Only weeks ago the notorious, Drug Lord, “El Chapo” was arrested in the exact town I was sitting in, as I sat there munching on my guacamole and chips, without a care in the world.
At the moment, it dawns on me that I have not noticed another Gringo for the past seven hours. I briefly reflect on the fact, that maybe that might not be a good thing, but then I quickly dismissed that fear-based notion and continued munching on another chip.
My eyes shifted downward to my white pants, that have dark roast coffee stains, splattered mid thigh to my ankle, an accident that happened when we hit an invisible speed bump, hidden on the road. We have been in the car for seven hours and have another seven to go, my hubby and I are heading North for a much needed “Road Trip.”
Our souls have been screaming for it, craving hitting the open road. We packed our bags, filled our cooler full of food, have the music blasting, and we are feeling alive, young and free. All our senses are tingling, as we thrust forward, being the true adventurers that we are. The colours are more vivid, the smells richer and the sites intriguing. The fields of lush green, agricultural crops go on for far as the eye can see. Making one realize the great natural resources this beautiful country has to offer.
For the first time in weeks, I don’t feel like I am on auto-pilot, as I try to peer into the lives of locals, as we pass by their homes. How interesting, we both live in the same country, but our worlds are so vastly different.
This thought solidifies; why it is so important to feed ones soul with the beauty of what life has to offer? A person can get bogged down with the humdrum of daily life. The days start blending from one to another. Until the reality sinks in and we really get, that we are freer than we think we are. Then the heaviness of life lifts, and we start to float from moment to moment.
When the sites and safety are in our rear view mirror, and our horizon becomes full of spontaneity and surprise, then life becomes juicy and delicious. In order to grow, really grow, our souls needs to experience something new each and every year.
It’s time friends, to get out there and get growing, one thing I know for sure is, you are never promised a tomorrow.
Homework: Pack a bag, plan a road trip and hit the road!
