Milestone - an action or event marking a significant change or stage in development.
I reached one of those the other day and I have no idea what the next one will be. However, I do know that I am excited for what the future holds. It's been a long time since I've felt that way.
Milestones come with changes. Change is something I usually reject. That's not the case this year. Change is inevitable and I have accepted that fact. Without change, how does one experience new things or let new people into their lives? Change leads to growth, knowledge, and experience. Those are things everyone should strive for. As of this point, complacency is something I am not entirely interested in. I don't think you should be either.
The day before my milestone was spent on a one day trip with a few close friends. I took a handful of photos of the things we saw:
It was a great one day getaway. We took a ferry and biked our way around some very scenic roads and trails. And yes, we did get caught in the rain. By the end of it all, we were soaked, cold, and exhausted. I wouldn't change anything about that short one day trip.
Traveling is an experience. Do it every chance you get.
There's so much for me to look forward to over the next few months. I plan on doing quite a bit more traveling (more on that later) and I couldn't be more excited for the places I will be visiting. I even managed to pick up my first DSLR camera. So no more videos/photos shot on iPhones or point and shoots.
I'm going to travel, I'm going to create, I'm going to experience new things. The life I have and the opportunities I am given are a blessing. It's my hope that you feel the same way.
I want to end this piece with a song/video. I think it fits nicely with what I've written about.
Be excited about what's coming.
Music, film, photography, and writing.
