Wanderlust is in Full Effect

     Wanderlust is defined as a very strong yearning or impulse to travel; to be someplace else. And it is exactly what I've been going through for the past month. I have been reliving those moments I spent in Hawaii back in 2012. And ever since then I have been itching to go back there; preferably to live, but I suppose I will visit the other islands first.

I ordered these candles (they smell so good!) and coconut syrup (tastes amazing! Better than maple syrup, in my opinion!) from ABC Stores in Hawaii. I am desperate and destined to go back there!

     Wanting to be someplace else is an indication that you're not happy with where you are at this point in your life. It could be on a physical/location level, it could be mental, emotional, and ever spiritual. I feel like most spiritual mentors and gurus would say that this is not exactly a good thing, because if you're not happy where you're at now what makes you think you'll be happy elsewhere? I disagree with this way of thinking. Sometimes people outgrow certain locations, ideas, people, situations, feelings, beliefs, etc. And this is all a part of your spiritual journey. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.

     In order for us to grow and learn new things, we must explore. We must tire of the old so that we can experience the new. This isn't a bad thing at all. It just means we're ready to move on. And isn't it healthy to be able to let go sometimes? So, don't feel bad, or don't let anyone make you feel bad about wanting to be someplace you're not. It's in your spiritual nature to explore and to change. And quite frankly, change is inevitable anyways. Just be your wandering self and allow yourself to live a little.
