Travel

Sell Everything. Travel Everywhere.

Why travel? Why bother leaving your home, selling your car, leaving your friends, your favorite restaurants, your comfort zone?

You will feel so liberated. Once you get rid of your belongings, you will truly be free.

You will realize material things don’t matter in life. They don’t give you happiness. Rather, they weigh you down.

You will meet incredible people on the road. Cool, enthusiastic, interesting, likeminded people.

Perhaps you might even have a romance. When people travel they are much more willing to act spontaneously and live in the moment. They have nothing to lose.

You will appreciate what you have in your life much more. Especially if you travel to less established countries.

Life

Dog Happy

I noticed that dogs are always happy, no matter what. It takes so little to get them wagging their tail. Running on the the beach, seeing a crab, getting called by their name, getting fed, chasing a squirrel.

Dogs don’t have big goals, nor do they have big life ponderings. They live in the moment, with no regrets and a true appreciation for the little things in life.

Experience has taught me to watch for red flags in people’s behavior to figure out what to expect from them. That way I know  how to protect myself from their actions. If said actions seem psychotic, unreliable, or worrisome I can then make a quick judgment call to run in the opposite direction to prevent harm.

 

Yoga on the other hand teaches me not to judge, to be open and receptive to all kinds of behaviors, approaches and personality, step back, observe and let things unfold at their own pace.

 

I am still very much unsure which is the best approach. The fist one is more practical but denies opportunities whether the second one is more inspiring but leaves more chances to get hurt.
