Who IS this girl making these goals?

Monday, July 01, 2013

I have this CRAZY, WONDERFUL idea for a new goal. The fact that I am even contemplating this show just how far I have come! I am VERY excited about adding this to my journey. The second I thought of it something clicked...I think that it is just the direction I am supposed to be heading...

I am walking to Tibet. The miles that I put in will be subtracted from the distance between where I currently live, and Lhasa, Tibet. 7718 miles.





As my mind continues to quiet, the pull I have to go and immerse myself in the Buddhist experience gets stronger. I have known for a while that, at some point, my life would probably lead me to study with a Buddhist leader. To experience an authentic experience that includes leaving modern creature comforts and focusing completely on what is. I plan on observing a vow of silence, and taking advantage of all that I can from this amazing life experience.

My "Walking To Tibet" will give me a focus for what I am ultimately working towards. It will help me meditate on where life is taking me, and actively choosing what I allow into my world.

THE BEST PART??!!??

WHEN I reach my ultimate goal I am going to book a trip to Lhasa, Tibet. And go ON MY OWN. And do just what I always saw myself doing...SOMEDAY. Someday is now. My life is not on hold. I am actively working toward something that I WILL make happen!

SOOO EXCITED!! Wooot! emoticon

    That is fantastic!!! I did a virtual walk across Illinois program last year that our governor inspired. I feel like a wimp!

I can't wait to read that you have booked your trip.

Go for it!

    This is awesome! I love that you set a goal and have something to look forward to....I think goals that have personal meaning (meaning there's more involved than just losing weight) helps us get stronger. You can do it! emoticon

    Awesome idea and great way to visualize!

Just remember, Andrea...stillness is INSIDE of you. You don't have to walk a single step to simply BE! You just have to BE :-)

love you, Girl!
