What life do you want to live?
One of the theories that I have about life is that life is only worth living if you have a challenge, a goal.
Something that wants to make you reach out beyond yourself, beyond the impossible.
I look around and stare at all the people around me and I came to the conclusion that I don't want to live like that.
A living zombie.
You see, not everyone started out wanting to be a insurance salesman, or a administrator or a clerk. Everyone had a goal, a dream to be someone special. But somehow along the way, life became too comfortable and they decided to just slide.
I was like this too. I had a good job which earned me a lot of money. A comfortable living and a good adoring girlfriend. But somehow or another I could see the outcome of my life.
Buy the car.
Buy the girlfriend.
Buy the house.
Buy a wife.
Buy the kids.
Buy your grave.
It was like if I continued along this pathway of life I would be merely another... zombie.
So I decided to quit my job. Quit the girlfriend. Quit the house plans and insane loans and bad investments and just try out and start my own business with whatever cash I had and give it my best shot.
Nothing better that today, right? I figured if I was to save money and collect enough to make my dream a possibility, I would always end up looking for more hidden problems that need fixing, or stuff to buy, or things that need handling... until in the end I lose the guts to do it at all. and end up being 60 years old and wondering where all the time went...
So here goes, going, doing!
My attempt at a new life.
Welcome Mindslavers. Welcome my new life!
