A nomad that started traveling only in adult life may sound a little different, as it is quite usual, recently, for babies to travel and babble in many languages. I took some time to get my soul nomad on the road, and for me, it meant doing it together with my husband and kids since they were small. This illustrates that we can be inspired in many ways and structures, as nomads, to fit our personality, possibilities, and opportunities. As much as quiet time is important and discovering unique places is a real gold mine for self-discovery, the fun and joyful part in you and I will want to share this with someone, at some point – preferably in person, and not only virtually.

As human beings, we are all born creative, active, and adventurous. It is also very natural that sometimes you can get caught up in a sea of responsibilities and obligations and lose track of what really makes you feel alive be it a country, a way of living, a deep will to change it all, reset how you are raising the kids, managing your business, relationships, and even your time off to relax and think. Each day more, it is important that one can become more resourceful from inside, find that place for you to dream, explore, prosper, even during this pandemic.

We are nomads from within before we explore outside, and I certainly feel that one fuels the other, each day more.

The definition of a nomad is a person who does not stay long in the same place, a wanderer. A wanderer is described as a person who travels aimlessly – now, I say, stop here and let this sink in and let me translate this to how I see it today, with a free meaning to it. As you release your day and plans and let them wander around in your mind, with no specific “aim,” that is, with no immediate intention of achieving anything, the sudden sensation of freedom and lightness is powerful. The distinct ideas and perspectives that will appear from getting "nomad" with your thoughts are like when you roam around an unexplored city, like when you look for another place or neighborhood to live as if playing with your infinite choices.

Yes, stopping and thinking has been so villainized that you may even feel guilty by desiring it. Well, you have my permission to daydream a bit, go nomadic on your feelings, let them guide you to where you want to be before you get on a new, exciting plan mode! My children are adults now, and I am so grateful for the daydreaming alongside the hard steps. Amazing times too, each day, into parenthood, into being there for my family, while mindfully putting my personal projects on hold, until I got hold of them and set them in action, at my inner nomad right time for it all to thrive and grow.

You see, you never know where your great inspiration, change, and even letting go of what does not serve you anymore will come from. When you expand your view on familiar things and people around you and start seeing it all from a different light, you gradually look up to what can be, to what you desire again, or anew.

The familiar ways may or may not support you, yet you are responsible for your vision and for setting it in movement. It is amazing what happens next, original ideas pop in, you start looking for specific support, the air clears out gradually, and your people start to find you!

This road is a vital one for yourself, your soul, your self-growth, and it will bring another meaning, not only for you but for those around you too, in a more authentic and enjoyable way.

So, go deep, go nomadic on yourself first and trust your vision!

Look for me next month for more inspiration and let me know what you think, and I will write back to you.
