Care to Coddiwomple?

Maybe your experience is different, but sometimes I take myself and my work a bit too seriously. I treat my life and my vocation like a quest. A hero's journey to find guides, fight dragons, and ferret out treasure.
 
But when I look back at my most meaningful endeavors, they look more like a coddiwomple.

Coddiwomple (v.)

Origin: English Slang Word

Definition: To travel in a purposeful manner towards a vague destination. 

I wonder what would happen if I took myself and my work a bit less seriously? What if I allowed myself a bit of whimsy and wonder and gave myself permission to wander?
"All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost." - J. R. R. Tolkien 
Here are some more words to add to your vocabulary to encourage your spirit of exploration and help you embrace your life's adventures more like an infinite game and less like a finite one.
 
Maybe some of these terms will help you to feel a bit more nouminous during your expeditions and experience less dépaysement.
 
Go.

 “Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail." -  Ralph Waldo Emerson
