Daily Blog #67 – Wrong Turns On Purpose

“Leisure is the mother of Philosophy.”
(Thomas Hobbes)

Today I went for a really long bike ride (yes, I know it’s the middle of December LOL), but I wanted the fresh, crisp air and to experience the charm of my neighborhood. It’s something that you feel much more potently when on two wheels and exposed to the winter elements. I had no designated path nor direction but I knew I was giving myself the freedom to explore. So I took a route I’ve never taken before. Taking what I guessed to be “wrong turns” again and again on purpose. Eventually, I found myself in a new neighborhood that I had never been to before. I was lost.

Surprisingly, in these new surroundings I noticed myself paying attention to each and every detail of this new place. My senses were heightened and I saw things with a new perspective. I was lost, but somehow that allowed me to find a newness when I looked to the world around me.

Sometimes when you’re lost it’s the best way to find something new.
