So my adventure begins and the big city awaits. Tomorrow is the start of something very special, hopefully from here on I can’t go back. And the one thing about this time is that I understand. I understand that this might not be everything I’ve hoped for. This might turn out to be an absolute disaster, but I get it now! I really do. However, as much as this could be my worst decision I’ve ever made, this is my decision and my adventure.
Life is just one big experience. If things go bad, so what? I don’t want to be one of these people who get to 90-odd and realise that their life has gone by without them achieving what they wanted to achieve. I don’t want to just survive, I want to live, I want to be successful. As bad as things ever get, the bad only ever happens to teach us to appreciate the good. What would happiness feel like without suffering? How would it feel to lay in your soul mates arms if you’ve never been through heartache? It wouldn’t mean anything! I want my life to be an adventure. I want there to be up and downs. I want to cry and laugh and smile. I want to be at my lowest of lows, at the depth of despair to be able to appreciate the best day of my life.
I’m taking everything with a pinch of salt and until now, I’ve never really understood what that actually meant but as I say, I understand now. I used to wonder what the point was. The point of life, the point of anything? But no one knows, no one will ever know; but the point can be what ever you want it to be. Who is to say if you’re right or wrong? To me, the point of life is to be responsible for your own decisions but to not fear your choices. Every decision you make changes you and change gives the opportunity for development and improvement so why not take it? Why not take the opportunity to experience something new, or make yourself better? It’s a waste of time if you don’t.
So as I say, this is a new opportunity for me and I’ve decided to take it. Instead of being scared or nervous, I’m just going with the flow and enjoying everything that happens. Looking for a new job in a pretty much unknown city isn’t the easiest task ever but I’m making this enjoyable and imagining the future spurs me on so much. I want the guy, the job, the career of my choice, the family, the friends, the good times, the bad times, the winter and the summer.
So here’s to life, the good and the bad!
