A lot of people ask about this crazy traveling all the time idea that I have, so here is a brief explanation of why I’m traveling. This idea and reasons will likely be revisited more than once in other blog posts but an introduction is always nice. So why travel?
First off, I hate feeling defeated. I have two useless majors, and I will probably never be rich, so what now? I need to find other ways to enjoy my life, and I need to give myself the time to create. Everyone always tells you that money can not buy happiness, but it seems that no one ever listens. Well I am going to listen – I am going to find my own success. I am going to do the best I can to make sure that I don’t end up with many regrets when I am old. One of the top regrets of the dying is that they worked too much – if I end up without a lot of money but I have great memories and experiences I don’t think I will regret that. Having stable money in old age is not guaranteed anyways but having incredible memories is something that I will never be able to lose (well, unless i lose my memory I suppose but I’m trying to be somewhat optimistic).
So, What does that mean? For me it means travel, it means new experiences, It means making sure my focus stays in the right place. Some people want stability, but I can’t be grateful for that. I can’t help but feel lost and stifled, you get one shot at all this right? So why not go for it?
I am resolved to set off on my adventure and write in each new place.
