🐫Once an adventurer, always an adventurer... No matter where you are in life, no matter how trapped you may feel, no matter how far you've stumbled off your path, if you were once full of curiosity and wonder, then you will always be rich with adventure for as long as you live.
No circumstance, no illness, no amount of abuse or conflict or violence or pain or sadness or frustration or isolation or regret or guilt or anger can completely take the wide-eyed, inquisitive explorer out of you.
You may lose your footing many times, but you can never lose who you are and who you've always been.
It may take a scent, a taste, a picture, an emotion, a phrase, to remind you of good memories, but they'll come back to you when you least expect it, and for that, you must hold on through the rockiest of climbs.
This pain may always exist in some way, but it will never take over and replace your inner spirit, your desire to understand more about yourself and the world around you.
Take solace in the fact that you have all the right tools- you just have to learn how to use them. And that will come with patience, the ability to listen and to ignore equally, and the willingness to experience everything fully, exponentially.
Your mind and your body are remarkable things with constantly moving parts.
There is always a way to astonish yourself and to prove others wrong. They have no right to judge you in the first place, for they have eyes that are tainted with their own adventures or lack thereof.
Good luck on your next exploration, whether in a dream or overseas, in the Keys or in Belize, whether you feel empty or you believe... whatever will keep you asking questions will keep you alive and able to be the adventurer you've always been destined to be.
Even if you get buried, remember, you're still just right there, underneath some rubble, preparing to climb back up.
