Taking The Leap of Faith

It’s a sad truth that much of the time we let the limiting beliefs of others intrude on our own will and desire to go out and do the things we wanna do.
.
I say, fuck em. The only voice you should listen to is the one in your own head. Think about it – what would we get done if we listened to everyone else’s beliefs and opinions but our own? We would be living a life based on what everyone else thinks is right.
.
I remember a time a few years ago when I didn’t know the difference between a realistic desire and an unrealistic one. Looking back, none of my desires were unrealistic, rather it was the way I viewed them that made them seem unrealistic. I viewed them through the lenses of other people’s opinions and beliefs. No wonder it was all so foggy.

Making my move to Cambodia was something that took balls. I had support from those around me, but I also had every reason as to why this was not going to work out and why this was the wrong way to go about life.
.
Aren’t I meant to be knee deep in a stable career, paying off a mortgage with 2 kids on the way? Well, that’s how the script goes, doesn’t it?
.
That’s not to say the script is right or wrong. Everyone is different and they lead different paths. But if you are one of those who thinks you should be doing something just because your parents or your friends or your teachers told you so when in actual fact that’s not what you want to do, then you need to seriously reconsider your life because you will regret that shit forever.
