Open Letter: Dear Wanderlust

Open Letter: Dear Wanderlust

A SERIES OF LETTERS; TO MY GREATEST FEARS, BIGGEST STRUGGLES, THE FUTURE, THE PAST AND THE PRESENT.

My last open letter was just one out of many, since it was a very serious topic I thought I would share something more cheerful with you this time.

Wanderlust. 
/ˈwɒndəlʌst/
noun
a strong desire to travel.


If you've been following my blog or Instagram, or if we're friends in real life you know that I book flights like others buy shoes. This open letter goes out to my greatest love, traveling.

Dear Wanderlust, 

Where others see me running away, I see myself running towards you. 
You fill me with curiosity, excitement and happiness. 
You give me the strength to overcome my overthinking. You get me out of all the corners I feel trapped in. 
I thrive through you, I gain so much more than standing still could give. 

I am never scared when I am with you. 
You are where curiosity replaces fear. 
You are all those places where my heart stays behind and my soul picks up the joy of new beginnings.
You are always here, the most pleasant of guests that stay in my mental castle. 

I can share you or have you all to myself, and nothing changes. 
I can count on you, that's all I'll always need. 

Yours truly, 
T.
