“How wild it was, to let it be.”

“How wild it was, to let it be.”

-Cheryl Strayed, from Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Coast Trail

We enjoyed the movie Wild recently.  Adapted from a book about one woman’s journey to get to know herself and create herself and life in a new direction.  Reese Witherspoon does a good job portraying the author.  I liked the sense of honesty and exploration throughout the story and it engages.

The movie closes with some amazing words about life and the perspective Cheryl gained in her journey.

On a related note wouldn’t you agree that life is the journey and we are all explorers?

Be vulnerable.

Go explore and play and discover and be wild and free and laugh at it all.

Let’s laugh at what we took as important and serious.

Let’s laugh at our pretensions and self-importance and be naked before the universe and it all.
