Dreams...


Traveling to different areas and observing & meeting varieties of people, always solidifies the notion for me that you can do whatever you want with your life. You are in the driver's seat. This is your life to live. You are never stuck. It is so refreshing to see people live out their dream. Their dreams are different than other people's dreams, but that's ok! I love seeing diversity in values. I think we can often get stuck in our little bubbles of stress & strain where everyone has competing values. But guess what? You really can leave it all behind. People do it every day. It truly depends on what you value. What do you value? You could live a simpler life with less clutter. You could leave the rat race at anytime. We met several people last week who were living simply, with leisure as their main focus. They were happily waiting tables, working on cruise ships, doing photography on excursions, driving cabs. They do enough work, so they can play. They live where people vacation. I find it fascinating. The people we observed, seem to truly be content with their humble lives. Not a lot of frill. Not trying to climb any sort of ladder or trying to obtain a higher status.
I certainly don't think it takes moving to a tropical island to live out your dream. You can do it right where you are. And it may just mean restructuring your values. It may just mean your perspective. Stop competing and yearning for more. Start appreciating and marinating in the joys of what you DO have. If you are going to compete, compete with yourself!
