Life Should Feel Complete
If you get a job doing what you love, you will never work a day in your life. This is what I have been told time and time again as I grew up. Being told this has caused me to wonder what I am really supposed to do with my life, and I feel like no matter how hard that I try to figure out what I can do I feel like I get farther away from the real answer. Sometimes I wish that I could just do anything and make it into a career that would support myself like I need to survive. If money was not a problem, I would love to spend my life traveling and seeing everything. I would live my life to the fullest and enjoy every minute of it.
I have been told since before I can remember that I can’t just travel all over the place because I don’t have the money to do that, and I can’t make money doing that either. If I could make money just traveling around that world and seeing everything there is to see, I would go to every place in the world that I have thought about going to see. I love seeing new things and that is why vacation time is my favorite time of the year because I finally get to get out of my routine and see something new. To me money if not everything, but I do know some people that do feel that way about money. Although money is not everything to me, I do know that I can’t really go anywhere if I don’t have the money to get where I want to go. I really wish I didn’t need it, but everyone does in order to survive in this world now-a-days.
I know that if I travel it may not really help very many people, but I feel that if I did get the chance I would be able to help people that I meet along the way. There are quite a few things that happen on this planet that no one chooses to tell us, so I would just prefer to experience them. After seeing things for myself, I know I would be able to bring more awareness to these thing would be easier. I would be able to explain things for really based on what I saw rather than what I read in a book or what I was told by someone else. I know that most of the benefits might be for me, but I would definitely try to bring good to other from being able to travel around the world.
One of my biggest fears is that when it’s my time to leave this world I will look back on my life and be sad because I did not live my life to the fullest. I did not do everything that I wanted to do while I had the chance to do it. I want to be able to say that I tried everything that I wanted to try at least once during my lifetime. I know that I will not be able to try everything because of my health problems, but I would like to try the things that I can do and really want to do. One thing that kind of goes hand and hand with living my life is that I would like to find where I truly belong in this world. I want to know where I really fit in and experience as much as I get the chance to experience.
I would love to just travel my entire life and see everything there is to see, but knowing that this may not happen I want to find where I belong. I want to find what I love to do and continue doing that. I want to find a job that makes me feel like I will never work a day in my life because I just love what I do so much. I feel that life is full of opportunities to better yourself. I want to take that opportunity and explore things with it. We only get one life to live and one chance to live it, and I want to make it the best life that I can with what I am given along the way.
