OkieGirl Visited New Mexico

Around this time last year I was spontaneously invited on a soul-searching road trip to New Mexico with a friend.

How could I possibly say no? I couldn’t.

We set off for a place she had been many times, where here Grand Pop lived an off the grid lifestyle that she told me all about on our way.

It was a blessing to be able to share these amazing places that were filled with stories and emotion.

This was more than just some road trip to both of us. She needed to find closure and visit her grandpa’s burial, and I needed to free my mind.

 

This was an AMAZING place to free my mind.

Looking over this amazing lake, I felt closer to my God than I ever have before. I felt that everything was 100% zen and that everything made sense. For the first time in a long time I remembered HOW much there was in the world that I have yet to experience. This exact day was the day that I started LIVING every day. Adventures aren’t always just fun little jaunts…sometimes they are much, much more.

I hope that some day you all find a place, or many places, that give you the amazing feeling and experience that this place did for me. I am forever hunting this experience again, and again.

Don’t forget how short this life is, and how many places are left to see!
