“I love how spontaneous and adventurous your life is”
Ha- I wouldn’t say my life is adventurous… I’m not skydiving and eating bizarre foods…From the outside in, all you see are the pretty photos I post on instagram of the things I see or experience here.
But yes, I guess it’s relatively true. If there is anything that my life is, it’s one hell of an adventure.
Everyday is different. It may not be glamorous. It certainly isn’t popular. I am not rolling around in money. Moving and starting again is a time consuming and expensive endeavor. When I reeeeally think about it (and I try not to), it’s actually kind of scary; nothing is guaranteed or stable. My days are still very much filled with difficulty, transition and struggle. I meet all sorts of people every week. My mind expands from the amount of information I’m learning everyday.
depending on the day i either 100% agree or disagree
One day I feel like I’m getting it and I’m getting settled, another day I’ll feel like the proverbial rug is getting pulled underneath me. People pass in and out of my life everyday. I lose and gain something every weekend. I get physically exhausted from all the change that occurs. It’s tiring to fight for the kind of life that you want.
But, that’s just it. It’s the life I wanted and worked for. I signed up for this. The people around me tell me I’m headed in the right direction. How things are slowly but surely falling into place, that these are signs that i’m getting close.
I figure this adventurous life of mine filters out the people who want to be around me for the wrong reasons and it attracts the ones that can go through it with me. I’m grateful to have the people that I do to keep me sane and grounded, and to hang out with when things get overwhelming.
My life is an adventure and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
The question is, can you keep up?
You with me? if yes, find me on instagram.
