Have you ever felt like you are in a different country even when you’re only a few miles from home? Do you ever go somewhere and imagine yourself elsewhere? Walking through a forest and feeling like you’re at the edge of a forgotten wilderness that only you know about. Maybe driving down a road that seems to never end, it feels like you’ll drop off the edge. You feel. That’s the most important part.
That’s why we visit these places because they leave a lasting impression. You can stare up at a landscape from the highest point or sit beneath the trees as they tower over you. You can lose yourself in a sea of faces in the city streets or hide amongst rolling hills in the countryside. It doesn’t matter where you feel content: to be content is feeling fresh mountain air in our lungs and hearing the sound of birds singing high up in the pine trees. It’s feeling every stone move beneath your feet and every brush of the branch against your skin. For some it may be the sound of city traffic and laughter in the street from strangers you’ll never meet, or perhaps the subtle clink of coffee cups in your favourite café.
It doesn’t matter where you feel content. To simply be in awe and to feel alive in a single moment is something you can’t ask for or buy. Go out and search for it. It’s a beautiful sentiment to live by.
