My dearest little ones,
The world is the most beautiful place. The people, the cultures, the landscapes, the languages, the architecture, the food, the traditions, the history – it is all unique wherever you go.
Do not be afraid to fly thousands of miles and days from where you were born; do not try to please everyone either. Home is not a set place with a latitude and longitude of coordinates. Home is where you feel unconditional love and you can give that to yourself anywhere on the globe. Perhaps it helps if you have a companion, but either way you can make a home anywhere your head rests.
Smile as you travel. You may not speak the same language, but a smile is universal. Immerse yourselves in other cultures, and respect their habits. Perhaps even adapt your favorites and carry those with you.
Be an explorer. Explore your mind; ask yourselves the hard questions. Know yourself inside out. As you explore the states and cross over into new continents, chase places that aren’t on the map. Find the jewels.
Be humble. You will not have every answer, and every single person on this earth can teach you about yourself and about life. Do not take that for granted. Always act like you have less than you do.
Go see the Northern Lights. They made me weep. This world is pure magic and full of miracles. Just look in the mirror.
