Want to lead an unremarkably average life? Do what everyone else expects you to do. Don't stand out. Don't break any rules. Surround yourself with people that think just like you. Accept what people tell you at face value. Get a regular job. Stay close to home. Don't take any risks. Accept what you've been 'given'.
How does this make you FEEL?
Uninspired? Okay? Normal? or like CRAP?
When you think about it, many of us tend to settle into lives that we don't really feel like we have chosen. We get complacent. We get caught up with just trying to keep up.
But here's the problem. Settling is bullshit! Not expressing yourself. Not experimenting. Not venturing far from what you know. All these things keep you inside the box. And what’s worse is, you may realize the box isn’t even your own.
It's time to wake up. It's time to create something, to fail spectacularly, to feel the high of the peak and the low of the valley. It's time to take the leap and venture away from home. It's time to escape AVERAGE.
“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, champagne in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming…WOO HOO…What a RIDE!”
