Walking across the country is not even close to the craziest thing I've heard of, yet people react to it as if it were. There are plenty of things that are much crazier, like staying at a job you no longer want to do simply because the money is good. Or seeking no adventure in life because life doesn't allow it. Life has become redundant and I'm not afraid to switch gears, i have enough years ahead of me to figure out what i want to do when i get older. Perhaps i never find out, so what then? Have i failed in life? Have i failed my family? My answer is no. I'd like for people to look at it without labeling it good or bad. Or has jealousy sparked envy and made people just a little bit angry with themselves? Angry that they didn't do something they may have once thought they should? That's a lot of questions and i don't necessarily seek answers.
Aside from these naysayers i have found another bunch. Those that absolutely just don't get it. They don't even get it enough to disagree with it. They tell me it's risky and not very wise to leave a stable job making good money. What is wise anyway? Are these people wise in what they choose in their lives? It doesn't matter. And it doesn't matter what they think about what I'm doing. If there's one thing I've learned in life is that you've got to do what makes you happy. I've also come to know that things don't always work out as planned and I'm ok with that. It's life, and it has its own way of getting back on course.
You know, not all of my childhood memories are bad. In fact, the best memories i have are of the simple things in life. My mother never could afford much, barely making ends meet, but a day combing the beach for cool rocks didn't cost anything. A walk through the woods was more fun than anything she could've paid for. I'm looking for a simple life. The things that mean something to me aren't necessarily the same as you or anybody else. How can i tell you what you should or shouldn't be doing? Who am i to judge your life and what you do with it? I shall move forward with no worry of what anyone thinks. You can tell me, and I'll probably listen, but beyond that there's nothing more that i can do.
Focused on moving forward.
