rainy day thoughts

How do you move on? You move on when your heart finally understands that there is no turning back.

I’m sitting here after eating my tomato basil soup and grilled cheese for lunch. I am in a thoughtful mood today. I’m sitting and pondering what the hell do I want to do in my life. What is it exactly do I want and why do I want it? What do i want my life to like? I ask myself these questions a lot especially when my life feels like it’s at a stand still. And looking at a pages of all of my goals, what I want to accomplish, and things I love. They all to come back to one thing -FREEDOM.

It’s a different way of life that I crave. To me, freedom means to be free from debt, free from a 9-5 job, able to pick up and go to exotic places. It also means being out in the country where it’s peaceful and quiet. Building a home for us. It means working for myself and my own family.

This is a different and difficult world to live in anymore. To be honest, I’m not crazy about where it’s headed. This is a world ruled by fads and celebrities. I’m sorry, but when did celebrities becoming experts in government and in health??? The technology is nice to have, obviously, such as being able to blog…….but  I think it can be a bit much and overwhelming sometimes. I’m at that age where I didn’t have a cell phone in high school, so it’s not the end of the world when I forget it. I will survive. I think that people are forgetting how to live. But maybe this is the new living… It’s a very different type of “evolution”. But people have been evolving since before we were Neanderthals. So maybe this is our next step. But not me.  I’m standing up and saying that I’m going a different route.

I know that I can promise myself that I won’t forget to live. I won’t forget how I want to live. I want to experience life for myself. Not watching in front of a screen. Yes, I want different things and thank the stars and heavens for that.

Now, I’m not saying that I’m going to go offline or social media. It’s a goal of mine to earn my living online, so I can inspire people ( like this blog) and to have the freedom to work from anywhere. Like I  said, it’s not a bad thing. But I will be mindful of my habits and getting back to what’s important to me.

While I’m getting ready for the next semester, I’m going to plot out those goals so they can become reality. Step by step. Day by day. There is no turning back now.

Here’s to living your life, achieving your goals, and having fun!!
