Sometimes you just have to be a spectator to life, relax, step outside reality and watch the world pass by to find your way. Have you ever asked yourself what are you doing with your life?
I can’t remember a day when I haven’t banged my head against a wall and wondered if I’m doing the right thing. I’m 30, I’m married, I have two kids with one on the way, I’m a student and a freelance writer who hopes to write full time after he graduates. I’m constantly juggling life with family, school and career goals. But sometimes I remember to freeze and listen and clear my head. I’m not talking about taking time to smell the flowers, but sometimes you need to do some real introspective stuff.
If my 20s taught me anything it’s that self-awareness is a valuable asset to have. You’re just a small piece to this puzzle we call life. And as you try to find your way to fit in, you can’t forget to look at the big picture.
You may never be able to find yourself as you thought you would after graduating from high school, but the least you can do is look inward to see what you’re made of.
Some people take walks, find Jesus or take drugs to look inward and while I’ve tried all these things something BEYOND LIMITS has taught me is that you can’t forget to look at how the world is connected.
The next time the world goes silent and you find yourself wondering what to do next, then perhaps hanging out with us while we hike the AT is the answer.
