What does it mean to be wild? Is it negative, positive or is it a complex mixture to experience both? Thinking about the wilderness, it makes me feel that being wild means being free, but a balance is required to not stray from my inner peace. As a Leo at heart, I love to imagine being a lioness exploring the world.
To me, being wild would mean being adventurous to experiment with everything life offers; my intention is to learn what I can be and discover the various things I can accomplish. Sometimes, it means that I start too many projects, learn that I can’t do everything and realize my focus. When I commit to being wild, I’m accepting that I don’t know what will happen, but I’m ambitious enough to hunt for a purpose in the experience.
I feel free when I choose to be wild because I know I’ve chosen a path on my own. I still try to plan and know of what will be, but I gain independence because I’m striving towards knowledge that calls to me. I don’t leave who I am behind to discover a new me, I just take myself to a new stage to enhance who I am with new treasures to uncover.
Sometimes, I wish for the comfort of company when I feel like being wild, but then I realize how distracting that is to my adventure. Looking for security makes me stray to what was and lose sight of what is. I embrace being wild as time to enter the unknown and I do it on my own to improve my self-discovery. It may be a mistake for now, but who knows how it may benefit me a few years down the road? If the full prize can’t be accepted now, then I will own the memories of trying my best.
Have you ever had a moment when your spirit is itching to know more? Take yourself on an adventure and be wild like your favorite animal. Don’t leave any part of yourself behind, take yourself to a new level without expectations and welcome the new experiences. Be wild like a child because you are a student in the Journey of Life.
