I’ve always dreamt of travel
Why should we die where we were born?
Some roads are laid with gravel
Sometimes you gotta build your own
I wanna tear down boundaries
I wanna greet my enemies
I wanna see what I haven’t seen
Cause I know there’s more
I take the world by storm
It’s almost like I could have written those words myself. And no, I didn’t.
It’s just music reaching out to me again but this time through a newer (at least to me) artist, Lukas Graham. Those lyrics are from “Take the World By Storm” from his self-titled album and man, is it good! Not just the song but the album.
As I did my weekly food prep yesterday I had the album on repeat, singing along to my heart’s content and just connecting with every word of this song.
Deep down, I’m a wanderlust. I have a hard time staying in one place without feeling stuck and like I need to break free, to tear down those boundaries and try something new, different, and often, a little scary.
When things get too stagnant or easy, I get bored and need a change. There’s a shift happening for me right now and I don’t know exactly what it is or where it’s leading me, but I know there’s more and I know I want to take the world by storm.
