A Trekker’s Manifesto

I am the author of my own story

I follow the path according to my heart’s desire

Time does not dictate when it’s game over

I can start anew anytime

I embrace my whole being, the good and the bad

I love myself unconditionally

I trust life

The world delivers at my will

I live to be free

Love is my guiding light

I live to expand and grow

I choose happiness

There is never a moment I take for granted

Because life is a privilege

I appreciate every second

of my existence

I rid myself of unnecessary  material possessions

To appreciate that LESS is MORE

Fear resides only in my imagination

Without hesitation I climb every peak before me

Life is “the adventure”

Now happening as we speak

I’m the author of my story

It’s beautiful and surreal

Life stands before me with arms open wide

I’m love.  I’m joy.

I’m free.

What is a Trekker?

If you walk on the city streets, you’re a trekker.  If you hike up mountains, you’re a trekker.  If you travel by foot on any path of your choosing, you are a trekker.  We are all trekkers by heart!

A Trekker’s  Manifesto is meant to be shared with those who connect with its message.  So, please feel free to add the image below to your blog, website and share with others via social media.  A back link to Brown Gal Trekker’s site is appreciated, of course!

  1. Beautiful! I especially like “to appreciate less the more”. In so many ways, we travellers have to do that because you can’t always travel in the most luxurious way to the most luxurious places. And if we would, we would never see the real life in other countries.

    1. You have a very good insight on the notion behind the manifesto. I appreciate you sharing your thoughts. I agree completely!

  2. Beautiful manifesto! Every line is so true! You are the authour of your own story, so make the best out of it! Such words really motivate me a lot – I am at home now and it feels like it’s time to move to see the world again 🙂

  3. This is wonderful – thanks so much for sharing! I really like the line: Fear resides only in my imagination – this is something I have to remind myself of all the time. We are definitely the authors of our own stories 🙂

  4. Thanks for sharing the Trekker’s Manifesto! I’ve never heard of it, but I feel like I should have, because man does it speak to me! I’m trying to think of a way to include it in my daily life. Love it!

  5. What a terrific manifesto! I personally relate to the line that reads: “I can start anew anytime.” With events in my own life and others, it’s nice to have the reminder that it’s never too late for a fresh start. Sometimes travel plans don’t go the way you believe that they should so keeping this manifesto in mind is soothing!

  6. This manifest literally depicts my lifestyle! My motto! And I couldn´t agree more with each word written! We are ALL the authors of our own stories … So let´s make it unforgettable! 🙂
