I woke up.
Refreshed and tired at the same time.
I was blurry-eyed, but blue sunlight poured into my bedroom. It was early.
My legs ached. My back was sore.
Then I remembered something a coworker told me. “Be careful, you don’t want to need a vacation from your vacation.”
Honestly, I’ve never felt better. I breathe clean air, I move my body, I see the beauty and danger of nature and I drink pure, clean water.
Yesterday, I drank glacial water straight from the source.
Nature already provided us what we need.
At work, I eat microwaved food, drink deionized and UV treated water while staring at a screen all day. Forced to sit in a chair. I cant move, I breathe recycled air and get little to no sunlight.
That’s not life and that is not living. I’m well aware that if you live for the weekends and holidays that your life is broken. After being away for so long, two things have become clear to me.
1)My life is broken
2)I set my goal too low and hit.
I was ‘too realistic’ and I wanted ‘ just enough to get by’ and that’s what I got.
As I hiked down the mountain yesterday, I thought to myself “This is the best trip I’ve ever been on”
It’s not your standard family vacation to Florida.
In terms of natural phenomena, New Zealand is second to none.
I realized that I wanted this for everything and I always have.
I wanted financial freedom. I wanted the best relationships. I wanted to go everywhere and experience everything.
From this day forward there will be no compromise. There will be no ‘low goals’
These goals will scare everyone else around me and if I’m being honest, myself.
But I would rather fall short of a million dollars than to hit $100,000.
I would rather date 1000 girls and not find the right one than settle on the 3rd girl I’ve been with.
I would rather die pushing my limits than safely in my bedroom.
And you should too, because we only have one life to live.
