the questions

today, i was kind of stuck on what to write about. so, as any resourceful person would do, i turned to the internet for some journalling prompts. i found a year's worth, lucky for me. today's question is: Do you have a favorite quote that you return to again and again? What is it, and why does it move you?

i discovered this one, below, right before i flew here to cambodia. you can hear one of my favorite you tubers, hannah hart, talk about it in a video. that's where i discovered it.


i got back to this quote almost weekly now. my whole life has been about searching for an answer to any and every thing. i had to let go of that when i moved here, because everything is so unknown. instead, i live in those questions and figure out what the next question is going to be. these last, almost five months, have all been circling questions for me. and there's a lot of comfort in that. i don't have to know what's next, i just have to have faith, leap, and trust that the net is going to appear. it's incredibly scary, but it's also freeing. i don't owe anyone an answer to how i'm living out my life. people in my life will be happy with me, because they see me happy in my life, all by living each question.

the biggest lesson for me, in this quote, is to live present in every moment. instead of trying to jump from place to place. to feel and notice everything around me, giving life to that question.

well, i hope all of you have a fantastic day. see you tuesday!
