I am a firm believer that I am not living life in this world, instead I am merely existing in it. Before this, I went to college right after high school and worked along the way. I was sure that I was going to live the rest of my life like many other people in this world. The most practical way that people were told to live their lives (here in the US) goes like this; go to school, get a job, get married, get a house, have children, work until retirement, and grow old. Those are the common way a majority of people live there lives. Some people might prefer to live that practical lifestyle, while some people don’t. I am not trying to say that way of life sucks, I am trying to say that there are many alternative ways of living life, but the vast majority of people choose the most practical way that others are already living by.
I am hoping to never live that kind of lifestyle, it is just not for me. I saw the opportunity to go travel around the world and I took it. I left my job and my home in order to live life through the lifestyle of traveling. I want to live a good life – full of rich experiences rather than live a mediocre life full of work and regrets. I don’t want to wake up one day realizing that my life is over and then ask myself, “where did the time go?” Life truly is short, so I am going to do my damn best to live it to the fullest.
