That word – travel – has more meaning to me these days. In fact, it’s the word my 91 year old mamma is using when she speaks of traveling into whatever eternal life looks like beyond this world. She knows I struggle with that future for her so she speaks about “when she travels” instead of using the “d” word.

But I’m also thinking about traveling for my own life and I’m NOT talking about the “d” word!

Lately I spend more time traveling into my soul. Exploring those deep places in my heart. Finding the beauty and joy of what revives and refreshes me. Discovering purpose and passion.

And of course I do have places I want to travel, too! Mostly any place with an ocean or lake view satisfies me most.

How about you? Do you have places you plan to travel to this summer? Planning to schedule some trips into your soul? The cool thing about those types of trips is they can happen wherever you are! The ultimate staycation!
