Why do we move?
Why are some of us constantly on the run to the next store, to the next job, to the next partner? We’ve asked you many times what exploration is and every answer is as valid as any other. We all have a definition that is true for us and even the dictionary defines it simply: the activity of searching and finding out about something.
But the real question is why do we explore and why are we attracted to finding something so strongly? What is it that we want to find that we’ll go through heaven and hell and back for? Our generation is faced with so many struggles and hardships that small moments have become the foundation of our best experiences.
What we want to find comes in different forms: the next getaway with the squad, the much-awaited out of country, the next pair of shoes, the samgyup place you’ve always wanted to try, the bone-shaking concert you’ve booked tickets to since last year, etc. At the end of it all, we come face-to-face with a spectrum of feelings and realizations but the bottom line is we achieve one thing: happiness.
So it makes so much sense to us to spend our hard-earned money on experiences that will last us a lifetime. There’s no telling how long we’ll have the things that we have now and while having dreams is what drives us, it is our treasured memories that sustain us.
It’s about the story of how far we walked one sunny day on the streets of Hong Kong or how deep we snorkeled on a beach trip to Coron. It’s about who we built our first campfire with or who we exchanged the funniest stories over beer with.
Life was never about the destination it has always been about the journey.
