You could my journey starts in Ecuador one night. I had just been dropped off in the middle of nowhere, in the middle of the night. Ok, maybe it was 10:00 at night, but being there with no lights on and nowhere to go makes it feel all the much darker. Or maybe it starts in China as I watched cities literally go up overnight. Or maybe it was Mexico? Macau? Malaysia? Morocco? Come to think of it, I could probably pick any place in the world I had been to and start my story from there. The same goes for time frame. Do I start this story when I’m finishing up my university degree and deciding what contract would pay me the most in Asia? Or does it start in elementary where I had some of the worst people you could ever stumble across as teachers? Or does it start today as I sit on my balcony pondering what steps do I take next?
We all have the point in where we become human and that is the day we are born. However, when we chose to start living is a different story. It took me years to figure out what I actually wanted until last year, a lightbulb finally went off on my head about what what would be good for me. And while I don’t quite have an accurate description of what it is, I know what
I’m supposed want to do.
For me everything boiled down to three simple points: money, values/morals, and above all, education. These three things are 100% of what society today (and forever ago) has been based on and if we don’t do them right, everything falls apart. And in North America, it seemed like we were failing drastically. Raise your hands if you know people who are truly happy with their lives? I can count on two hands probably who I know. It shouldn’t be that way though when we live in the land of milk, honey ands opportunities.
So with that the quest (my quest) launches in May along with the renewal of my business licence. Since they tied in together I figured it would be good to pair up what I was working on to make life easier for myself.
And this time I intend to make it stick, although everything I did in the past kind could be seen as the framework for this new idea.
And without sounding too clichéd, my time is running out.
So is yours, and if you haven’t started, let today be the day you start living again.
