I want to turn my life into an adventure!
Fuck whats normal! I’m not living my life based on other peoples expectations anymore :)
I want to be free. Truly free!
I want to be honest.
I want to be kind.
I want to love.
I want to share.
I just want to live!
And i can’t do it in your cities, or going to your universities.
I can’t do it getting a 9 till 5 job.
I cant do it with a boss.
I cant do it getting a morgage and a house so i have somewhere to store all MY THINGS!
I DONT WANT THINGS! :D
I just want to travel, to see the world and all of its beauty,
and to meet every last beautiful human being on this planet.
And i’m gonna do it with my dog. Without money. without higher education. with or without anyones approval. I’m gonna do it because its what i want to do and it makes me happy.
I want to follow my bliss, and i’m fed up of hearing that i cant make travelling my life without having lots of money.
FUCK MONEY! i never needed it before and i dont need it now.
I see too many people who think exactly like me, but fears and ‘commitments’ hold them back.
I met a man that was 80 years old that started travelling when he was 50!
When he started travelling he could only speak english, and now he soeaks 8 languages!!!!!!! He’s happily married and his wife stays at home in australia on the farm and goes on a month long holiday every year to visit her travelling husband.
I met a 25 year old american women travelling with two children through borneo on her own!!!! BACKPACKING!! one of the kids couldnt even talk yet and the other was maybe 4 years old! and she was travelling with them for months hopping islands in the phillipines.
I met an 18 year old boy that travelled the world on his own for fuck knows how long.
I met a man that had gave up his life in america to live in the mountains in taiwan and become a vegan to live off the land.
I met so many beautiful people that do everything that society says isnt possible, or is too hard!!! and they did it with a fucking smile on their face and they were the most beautiful people i’ve ever fucking seen!!!
so honest, so friendly, so kind, so loving!
This is for everyone that has someone telling them that they are a dreamer.
That their hopes and dreams are too silly, and they should pick something more realistic like business… or join the army or something!!! MAKE EVERYONE PROUD OTHER THAN YOURSELF!!!!
ITS TIME TO BE A LITTLE BIT SELFISH EVERYONE.
ITS TIME TO STOP LOOKING AT EVERYONE ELSE AND TO START LOOKING AT OURSELVES!?
are we all what we thought we were going to be when we were kids????
when i was a kid i wanted to be an inventor, and an artist, and i wanted to go into space and ride big scary motorbikes up big ramps!!
What happened to all that? why didnt i pursue any of it???????
because i was a kid, and my ideas were silly, and i was told to act my age not my shoe size by all the teachers at school.
I got told by faculty that children should be seen and not heard.
Well fuck that i want to heard.
and i’m gonna go and stand on the highest mountain and scream fuck you at the top of my lungs to all the adults that ever doubted me when i was a kid.
I’m going to be exactly what i want to be! i’m in charge of my own destiny.
Only time will tell if i get what i want, or i guess i’ll die trying :P
I’d rather have a short life following my bliss, than have a long life ‘staying safe’ and acting as i’m expected too.
I’m a little bit strange you see, and i’m very comfortable with that.
I am completely happy with who and what i have become.
And i want all of you to start doing the same aswell!!!!!
GO OUT AND LIVE PEOPLE!!! QUIT YOUR JOBS!!! DROP OUT OF COLLEGE!!! ! GIVE ALL YOUR MONEY AWAY TO CHARITY!!!! FUCK UNIVERSITY OFF!!!! GET EVERYONE YOU LOVE TOGETHER AND TRAVEL THE WORLD WITH THEM!!!!!
JUST DO IT ALREADY!!! :P
STOP WAITING!!! STOP ASKING FOR APPROVAL!!!
AND GO AND GET WHAT YOU WANT!!!
and be happy while you do it :)
don’t take life to seriously.
for those of you that want to try and do it, i wrote a guide for how i plan to live my life soon, and i did it in a way so that others can use it as a guide as well as me :)
its a map for freedom, for anyone that would like some advice on how to do so,…
enjoy and peace people :P
try not to take my rant to seriously, i’m getting very into this creative writing thing ;P so just trying out my whole ‘Motivational speach’ thing.
let me know how you liked it? haha all of this is just practise for me.
I want to be a travel writer :)
so this is me working towards that. practising my writing and all that jazz :P
hope you enjoy your lives people :) what ever you choose to do, whether you take my advice or not, whether you agree or not, none of it matters, so long as you are doing what you want to do, not what i want you to do or anybody else. Thats the whole point :) listen to the meaning not the words…..
That was DEFINITELY needed. Dunno bout everyone else but now i feel like packing my bags xDD
Good job, it was awesomized ^.^
That’s all WONDERFUL and very true, but, be careful how much you shun money, because work is a part of life, and if you spend your life not working, you will reap precisely what you sow.
If you’ve never taken off and listened to your walkabout calling, by all means you need to do so NOW (whatever age you are) for at least a couple of years (how long depends on who you are) BUT happiness is earned in many ways, with adventure, free thinking, hard work and risk-taking all being only a part of the grand total.
haha, i’m not shunning money, i just don’t want to rely on it for my experiences. If i need food, sometimes i will have to busk for a bit of this lovely money that everyones so fond of, so i can give that money to someone who wants it, that has food they can give me.
Just because i hate money does not mean i will be completely stupid and stuborn about the whole thing and not touch notes as if it makes some sort of point, but i feel this is childish and silly.
I am not trying to prove myself to anyone, more so trying to inspire others to follow the trial of cookie crumbs i leave behind :) so that others may hopefully get to where i am as well.
And you dont need money to work. I plan on volunteering everywhere i go. I’ll do whatever i can i’m not arsed what it is or if its through a charity or just helping a homeless person collect some money for a meal or a drink of whisky if they do prefer such delicacies, who am i to judge? :P
but i think you misunderstand my hate for money so you think i’ll go all ‘into the wild’ haha, but i do appriciate your concern for my well being :) with this you show me compassion and i thank you for it. But i will be fine you don’t need to worry about me :P
I have already been travelling, i did 6 months in korea, taiwan and malaysia with a friend living in buddhist temples, working on farms, helping out at bars,
then after that 6 months i went seperate ways from my friend and travelled a further 12 months on my own.
In this time i lived in more temples, Lived on an island called Tioman in malaysia and ran a my own bar (which didnt cost me a penny and made me lots of money to carry on travelling with)
I got to work besides tigers, bears, lions and many other animals for 2 months.
I have been lucky enough to through myself out of society and into the unknown without much cash at all, and the universe was very kind to me and gave me a million stories to tell and the confidence to follow up with the ideas that i have suggested to you above :D
You don’t need to worry about me my friend although like i say i appreciate your concern.
and although the words may have been slightly irrelevant to me personally, you had no way of knowing this about me :P haha so i will not hold it against you.
But now you know more about me you can decide for yourself if you think i am misguided and need more advice… or you can decide that there was more to me than met the eye (in this post) and this lead you to a misunderstanding.
Either way, your words were wise and i will learn something from them i am sure :)
But as this is a public post the beauty of your advice is that is not only for me, but for any who read.
I have been listening very carefully to the walkabout calling and we have become very familiar with each other, because of this i seek adventure, free thinking individuals to converse with, places for me to give my passion and my awareness too, all the while taking risks as i believe that is what life is all about :D
Jah bless lol :) take care.
Wow. I LOVE this. I just quit my job so that I can do this sort of thing yesterday and am currently on my way to visiting my grandma one more time before I up and leave. As I was going through my things this morning, I came across a piece of paper with some frustrated writing from a while ago when I was going through a tough time. It was almost word for word what you’ve just said and it made me cry. I decided right there and then that the person I was describing in that writing is exactly who I’m going to be. Doing my own thing, not caring about what others think (but still caring about them), and going out and going wherever I want when I want. I’m taking my car to the west coast and seeing where I can go from there. Not looking back, not holding back, and not going back. :)
and this is the beginning of the most amazing time of your life :D
I loved what you had to say, it was perfect and i dont want to taint it with my opinions :D
GOOD LUCK ON YOUR JOURNEY!!!!!!!!!! BE AND DO GOOD!!!!!!
remember the universe is your best friend and it will treat you like one in return!!!
glad you enjoyed my/your writing!! haha
a website which you will find very useful if you’re travelling…
go on there make an account and search for a group called ‘Shaun and Ben’, find Shaun and add me and then i’ll give you a reference of epic proportions to make your journey that little bit easier :D
I don’t think you’re misguided at all, it’s all good shit and a very positive direction to be growing in; it’s a shame so many people find it so hard to realise the simple truths of how easy it is to go do the things you want to do, and how silly it is letting others impose their fears on you.
The only reason I felt compelled to mention the “don’t hate money” quip was because I’ve met too many open-minded people that fool themselves into thinking it’s impossible to have a “closed open mind”. Growth is about moving into the unknown, and the unknown for some people is as much living in an office cubicle as it is leaving all your possessions to go hitchhike round Siberia. So many brilliant, insightful human beings who’ve had the courage to blast the cobwebs out of their mind by committing to a travel life, end up chaining their intellect by placing such strong ideals against “society” and “the man” (lol) that they end up limiting their potential to really blossom.
All I’m sayin’ is, the universe is a balanced place, for every thing, there *must be* the existence of the opposite in equal measure for the thing itself to have any value. If you want to be truly free, you must understand contrast, and commit to experiencing/accepting both ends of the scale; accepting sadness in order to develop happiness, accepting the necessity of work in order to earn your freedom (be it as an accountant or a horse-breeder). and so on.
Good luck all of y’alls, fortune favours the brave ^.^
