For way too long

2 years, 1 month ago

For way too long now it seems like I’ve been confused or unsure of my direction in life. The many things of life such as interaction with others, school, or even enjoyment out of the things that have given me joy such as friends, hobbies, or the illegals at times have fallen short out of my sight. The whole time i knew something was missing even though i couldn’t quite place what it was.

Today i went on a walk around the neighborhood i grew up, listening to the album Circuital by My Morning Jacket. As soon as the first song came on i knew something special was happening. It was bringing me to places i haven’t seen in for what seemed like an eternity, back to my childhood days and truly remembering just how easy it was to enjoy life, any and all of it. Something i feel like would take so long and yet so short to describe, all being the same. The album seemed like a recalibration of my person being so real and true that i had no other choice but to follow it. Even though i now have this new found direction, I’m still not entirely sure where I’m going. But that seems like the fun of it, right?

The reason i chose to post this was to keep a promise to myself that i would keep following this path. My way of starting it is by accepting the epic challenge: 30 days of fear (http://www.highexistence.com/epic-challenge-30-days-of-fear/), starting tomorrow. Ill keep posting on this periodically with my progress. thank you to all that exists!
