The sun sets on another day…
Sunset was understated but amazing. Storms rolled in and out all day and the end of the day was a piece of time that seemed to be both in and out of the sunset.
I watched a conversation unfold today about moving away to find like-minded people. It was an exciting conversation and rather rapidly became opinionated. There’s something fantastic about finding a place where you belong; you do have to remember, though that an old movie said it best ” no matter where you go, there you are”.
As I watched advice fly at this young person like gnats on a rotten Peach, I was saddened by the approaches and the rationalizations of people. The young person mentioned was considering a move that could have cost her significant money and had no natural way of guaranteeing a potential outcome. This person spoke about their books as a motivating factor, but in today’s world, our only limitations are those we place on ourselves. When Sputnik was launched and the Space Race began, there were the beginnings of the internet today, but no one could have seen how small it would have made the world. You can be everywhere with minimal effort if only you take the time.
My advice to anyone looking for a new world somewhere else is to make certain that your reasons for going are sound. Not that I’m not for Adventures, as I have been all over the world, but more for making sure that we find our way to what could be home without reservation or prejudice.
And for everyone who has a bias about locations, just remember, if you have a bias about anywhere, then the bias lies with you, not with the place. We are a people who could be of any particular type no matter where we are and often, moving trades one problem for another. It’s just a matter of timing.
Funny though, with the world as it is today, live where you want to, and pick a place you will like to live, the people will connect with you from everywhere. It is just finding those people.
So as the sun sets on another day, find your life, and don’t listen to me, or anyone else if you find what you want to do, just be sure you live every day with all the passion you can, and make the world the best place it can be, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and there you are…
