A Musical Interlude – Road Trips & Silver Linings

Hi there,

Seems all of us crave freedom, whether it’s dreaming of a Road Trip, or time for Creative Freedom, or escaping something. This sweet new tune by ‘First Aid Kit’ is an uplifting reminder to move beyond our Comfort Zone, when we can.

Because the other side of our Comfort Zone – is Freedom.  

And silver linings…

The song goes:

“I won’t take the easy road… there’s hope,

there’s a silver lining”.

“I hear a voice calling out for me…”

Lyrics to song here:

I personally chose not to take the easy road. I heard a ‘call to adventure’ and answered it.

When I was 24 I bought a 1-way ticket to the other side of the world, chasing my dreams – by myself. (From a very safe and cosy life in Australia –  to London & US). That might sound scary to some, and it has been challenging, but it paid off.  It actually turned out to be the ‘Fast-Track’ to my dreams. A ticket to success. And My Silver Lining after some sad events.

But I’d say it’s a constant, daily choice to take the road less travelled.

With this ‘Enlighten Me’ project, for example, where I’m ‘starting over’, without the safety net or backing of my former long-term employer (who I chose to leave), it feels like once again, I have to bypass the sign saying ‘easy road’…stay geared up to overcome any fears or obstacles…and just keep my eye on the direction I want it all to take. (A much bigger vision, that goes way beyond me).

But I’ll choose the ‘open road’ any day.

‘Cos that’s the road trip of my life.

“Gotta keep on going, looking straight out on the road”

To your freedom,

Myfanwy 🙂

PS.  I’m also a big fan of short Road Trips closer to home for times when you need a new perspective.   Like the song says “I’m tired of looking for answers”.
