I think I have a traveling spirit. A soul that can’t stay in one place for too long.

Don’t get me wrong, I love being comfortable and I enjoy a routine, but after too long I just need to move.

Like when you’ve been riding in a car for hours and the only thing you can think about is getting out and stretching your legs. That urge to step out and move.

I felt it before I first moved to college and again before I moved to London to study abroad. I felt it before I gained a new group of friends and a new job. I felt it before I started challenging my own faith.

My soul knew these things would be good for me and would push me to be the best version of myself. And even though they were new and intimidating, I knew these moves would take me right where I needed to be. In my life, I think God makes the hardest decisions for me. And no, I never feel forced or really even compelled to choose. I just remember these decisions being the easiest. Although looking back, I have no clue why I thought they were logical in the moment. But they were easy and they’ve turned out to be the best.

Moving to college, living in London, surrounding myself with friends like I’d never had, gaining a new job and outlook on life, finding a new perspective on faith and religion. I believe these key moves have brought me closer to the person I want to be.

So I’ll keep moving. This traveling spirit. I hope I can find new routines and new places. And I’ll step out of the car and stretch my legs and smile because I’ll know I’m exactly where I need to be. The steps of a man are established by the Lord, and He delights in his way. -Psalm 37:23 (NASB)
