Don’t Forget to Pack Your Suitcase

Restless is my soul that longs to wander

with no direction, only a prayer

The soul that longs for the adventure that is waiting somewhere

Where the desires of my heart will flourish and I am free to be

When “awe” is my heartbeat; breathless the way I breathe

Where words flow like mighty rivers running to the sea

Where the sun is my compass to a trail with no boundary

Where I am free to be who I am to be

I wrote this because this is my dream. My desire is to travel, write and live a life of purpose for God. Do you have a dream? I wrote this for those who are waiting and hoping on a dream. You feel restless. You want the dream to happen now. In your heart you know it is not time, yet you still try to make it happen. Be careful. You may not be ready to handle all that your dream will require of you.

Don’t focus so much on the dream of tomorrow and forget to live your life today. Everyday has a lesson to be learned. Every experience, whether good or bad, teaches us more about ourselves. Today’s experiences prepares us for tomorrow’s journey.

Trying to force your way to your dream before you are prepared is like going on a trip and not packing a suitcase. You get to your destination and you don’t have what you need.

So be excited for your future, dream that dream, but don’t forget to take time to pack your suitcase.


I am 54 years-old and the mother of three grown children. In the last five years, I left a profession I was in for over 20 years, I moved to a new city, re-married, went back to school to discover a new profession, and became a grandma for the first time. I also am pursuing my passion for writing. I am writing a children's picture book and I started my first blog ever. For years I was afraid of change but I now I embrace it
