I want more than this “reality”
I wish my family understood me more than they do, I’ve been putting together a journal of where I want to travel, where I want to see, who I find inspiring, gurus I’d love to meet, and more, then my big sister read it, turned around and said “why are you so ungrateful? Why can’t you just get a job like a normal person?” I’ve never been so shocked by her in my life, I’m grateful for absolutely everything, from the moment I wake up to the moment I curl up and fall asleep, surely it would be ungrateful of me to know there is an entire world of opportunities and cultures, yet not want to visit them? To explore the gift that is this planet. I refuse to be pushed into what people in this society think is reality, I refuse to sign my life over to a dead end job then end up a 45 year old woman who regrets everything she’s done with her life.
I will live my life free, I will explore the world, I will meet people and animals that I wouldn’t normally meet in this deformed society that most people now call “reality”. I will open my heart to everyone I meet and take this life as a gift.
