The peace, passions and inspirations of this blog are thoughts given to me from friends, family, and those surround myself with daily. The first question I have been asking is “If you could erase every worry and care in your life at this moment and you got one wish that allowed you to achieve your final goal in life, what would you wish for?” I love hearing the answer for this question because it makes me think deeply about what I truly want or NEED, I find out what is important to ME through YOUR answers. Whether they are selfless or selfish, the dreams we have are truly amazing….What would yours be?
“my end goal? Simple. I want a family. I don’t care if I live in a box, as long as I have my wife and kids I will know I was successful. I know other things are really important, and I love my other stuff, but like if I end up fire fighting for example, sure thats great and all but having family is the most important. I just see how I was raised and what my partents mean to me now, I just want that for my kids so bad. I know how I want to raise my kids the way my parents raised me and I am excited to see where they end up”
“But it’s not about the end result? It’s all about the process. And I can’t even say what the process is because that’s like booking a life man. You can’t just do that. I know what I want in the near future. I want to travel and I’d like to buy a cow in bulk so I can use the deep freeze I got for my birthday. I would love to take a month off work and just cook, climb, practice yoga. And just live.”
“Make changes in my life? I would never do that though? All the ‘responsibilities’ and ‘worries’ in my life make me who I am. Without them I wouldn’t end up in the same place. I don’t really know where they will lead me but they will lead me somewhere. I mean I know I want to play volley ball in the Olympics someday and then move on to being a motivational speaker. But same goes for those goals, I wouldn’t be doing either without all the good and BAD challenges I have faced in the past.”
“Honestly, It’s hard for me to say what my end goal in life is. I see life as a whole learning process. I’ll continue to grow and gain wisdom. Though I can say that I seek enlightenment in life. I want to seek all the answers and find peace all within myself. My destiny is really sketchy and unknown to me at this time in life, but I know as time passes I’ll find my destiny. “
In a confusing moment of my life, as I traveled through some changes, Amy illuminated an uplifting idea with me. “I have the tattoo of bubbles because I used to think in bubbles. I think I still sometimes do. I really used to fixate on one idea or have tons of ideas floating around in my head and as soon as a ‘bubble’ popped I would freak out and be totally scared, but as soon as one popped I would realize that there were more bubbles and I’d be like ‘ohh. Ohh okay, I’ll be fine. I’ll just keep moving on.’ Bubbles are always floating and drifting around us. As soon as another one comes along we will always be lifted back up again.
What a positive outlook on… EVERYTHING. This girl is one of the few people that you honestly can’t say anything negative about. She is kind to every person around her and honestly enjoys ever minuet of her life. She truly know how to live life looking at the silver lining and somehow is still realistic. It is beautiful and I envy it! Living life lightly and embracing all new changes, people and activities thrown at her. I am very Happy to have met her. I am inspired.
