See the World

Is this true of your voyage around the world? Is it true of mine? I have been reflecting on who I encounter on a daily basis, who I chose to spend time with. Are my friends and connections a homogeneous gang? Do I want to have ‘sliced white bread like’ acquaintances? The answer is probably, no.

Living in a rural place we have  social and economic diversity but lack the richness of a cultural mix. We have a range of ages here but lack the 18 – 35 year olds – this group tends to leave in search of bigger and brighter things. ( I did when I was in that age bracket.)

So how do I grow in the way I see and experience the world?

Be open to unexpected friendships and acquaintances. Be open to new, different, alternative and challenging experiences. Allow my family and my children to journey with me, both here in this place we call home and beyond.
