A lot of people say to me “You think too much”. I’m actually one of those people (no I don’t talk to myself… much). Back to thinking too much. I often think about the life decisions people make, not just my own but most people I meet and I get to know I like to think about how they arrived to where they are today. What decisions did they make to get here and what is their driving force, and what slice of luck did they have to be where they are. Let’s be honest, we all have had some slice of luck (be it good or bad) that has affected our outcome on life.
For me the driving force in my life has seen a lot of changes recently. For a long time my driving force was money, and the pursuit of money (doesn’t equal happiness). Sure we all need money to get by, but I only strive for what I NEED now and no longer chase the million dollar dream.
In the past for me it was all about striving for the dollar to secure some materialistic object I didn’t need and working myself to the bone and saving money the best I could to purchase my latest fad. Now everything has changed. Life is an investment of experiences. What is life to have to slaved away and save money but not to have lived. So now I live life and I try not to let the stresses of the need for money to get in the way. I sell my photos and I share my passions only to get by from one experience to the next. I hope to replicate this enough to continue experiencing the world, sharing photos and videos of amazing places and never throwing that in for the sake of some career choice.
Do you struggle sometimes with your current path. Is your current path dictated by the need for the next big thing that you don’t actually need. One day I decided to follow my heart and follow the sun and now I don’t want to look back. I want to keep following the sun and see what the world has for me to share with you.
