Wild and Here
>> What it means. <<
When I was thinking of a name for my blog. I wanted it to encompass my journey no matter what road I take. Yes, I’m living in a van now and love sharing van life tips and the real side behind the movement, but I also know that I want to this blog to grow with me when I’m taking a different path as well.
Wild: adjective, wild·er, wild·est.
living in a state of nature; not tamed or domesticated:
When I think of the word wild, I think of the word free, or (like the definition) not tamed. I’ve always been someone who wanted to push the the societal expectation of “growing up.” I think the most free a person can be is when they are able to let loose, reconnect with nature, run barefoot through the dirt and splash in puddles, no matter their age. Wild is a state of being for me and I hope to inspire anyone who lands on my little corner of the internet to shake off the status quo and turn to towards their wild, childlike nature.
this place:It’s only a short distance from here.
this world; this life; the present:The here and the hereafter are equal mysteries to all people.
I think that one of the greatest lessons, and maybe hardest in practice, is the ability to remain in the present moment. I’m kind of wired as someone who sees something sparkly and moves on to the next thing over and over again — which can definitely be a good thing at times, but can also be a way of jumping ahead and not finding the magic in what is right in front of me. There is so much peace in staying present, even if the present is painful. I think is such a beautiful experience to acknowledge your present self and the world around you and learn from it. Being present is something I’ll be learning the rest of my life.
