What is a searcher? Are you a searcher?
Perhaps you are if you are stopping by and reading TSLL regularly, because as I discovered, after reading the passage below by James Kavanaugh, I am indeed a searcher and TSLL blog is the medium that provides the vessel to share what I discover.
And the best, and most exhilarating discovery of all is that I can’t imagine being any other way. I truly cannot imagine living any other way. Have a read through the passage, and then let’s talk on the other side.
As I ponder Kavanaugh’s words, I begin to play with other daily habits, other daily behaviors that I adhere to that align with the idea of being a searcher, and I wanted to share five that came to mind:
~I read voraciously to learn more about paths not traveled or yet to be experienced.
~I resolutely believe where there is an obstacle, there is a solution, a path to be found that leads to the other side.
~I am enthralled in observation of others, am keen to subtle peculiarities and sensitive to their pain and happiness as much as my own.
~I adore the touch of water – be it a stream, running bath water or rain from the clouds.
~I am invigorated by intimate conversation, conceptual discussions and thoughtful contemplation.
Now, if you too identify with being a searcher, I encourage you to share one way in which you find yourself exercising daily habits that mingle with the life of a searcher. I am very eager to hear.
After all, at the core, a searcher is someone who is intoxicated by the wonders of life and truly is dancing each day, challenged, yet entertained by the rhythm that changes regularly, but has a subtle regular heartbeat if only we choose to listen. Feel free to comment below. I’d love to hear your thoughts on this topic.
On a completely different note, well . . . not entirely. Milan Fashion Week offered a few fabulous collections. Hey, we can all be searchers and still look chic while we do it, no? 🙂
Below are a few ensembles that caught my eye (view all of my MFW favorites here). And stay tuned as Paris Fashion Week has just begun. All of the outfits that catch my eye will be posted here.
