i’ll tell you what. it’s been a long past couple weeks. portland in june for a week, nashville in july for a week, and most recently, current river this past weekend. i always thought i would like the life of a traveler, but i’m not so sure now. perhaps it’s just that i still have so many responsibilities back home. it is good to be back, but much fun was had these past three trips.
i’ve spent a lot of time these past couple months thinking about things, and my personal journey through life. being out on your own, making every decision for yourself, you become so much more aware of where your life is headed. and thus, by that, i think you take even more responsibility — not just for those day to day things, but for the long term things as well. when it’s just you responsible for the rest of your life, and no-one else to tell you what to do or where to go, you realize after a while that it’s all up to you, and that it’s time to jump, grab life by the horns, and go for what you want. nobody else will. hopefully i’m not being redundant.
having major sunburns on my feet (odd place, i know) i’ve spent much of my time around the apartment today, resting, and working on my book. i’ve spent a fair share of my time since i’ve moved out working out things in my head, and deciding what i want my next business venture to be — trying to follow some of the advice i’d set out in the book. what i’ve realized is that i pushed my passion aside and started doing second things first.
i’m back to the book now. i’m back to my real passion — studying success, writing about it, and devising a common sense plan for the average joe to follow, so as to revolutionize and change the way we all go about finding success in the future. the plan that had been laid out for me by the previous three or four generations of humanity just wasn’t appealing. my heart wasn’t in it, and i just didn’t feel any sense of excitement or inspiration. they say in life, sometimes, that you just have to do what you don’t want to do. call me crazy, but i don’t buy it. i’ve bit the bullet and done plenty of things i haven’t wanted to, but i’m slowly and successfully working away from that.
alright, time to get back to the book. this day, on a personal level, has been one of the most fulfilling in a while. don’t get me wrong. i have loved my vacations, and especially getting to spend more time with my family as of late — precious moments as they are. but the only truly life-changing experiences, the ones that propel you to new levels of success and fulfillment are the ones you embark on, endure, and pass through on your own. and that’s what i’m on right now.
back to writing. love to you all. :)
