Sometimes I just want to run away from everything. The good the bad, what I know all I have, just leave it all. I wonder, why we buy things, houses, cars, little gifts, eat so much, measure ourselves by others failures and successes?
What would happen if we just stopped. Just stopped all the nonsense? Would there be anyone left to go to war? Would we notice our different religions? Would we need to drink and take drugs to escape reality? Or is the reality we need to escape from within? Is the measuring stick our own or societies?
I wonder if I am who I am, because of where I grew up and my experiences – or would I be the same me even if I had been born in another country? How brain washed am I? How brain washed are you? People have been fearing, and chasing the same things since the beginning of time the only difference is the way we chase that dream or goal. The tools and opportunities are a little different but look…
We are born, learn, grow up, search for love, a life partner, build our idea of a family, grow old, and die. That’s it, pretty simple. No change since Adam and Eve. Same rules for everyone as far as nature goes. So, what to do with all my dreams and plans?
Well, I’ll just keep working on accomplishing them, deal with my insecurities and teach my children to do the same. Life goes on anyway, with or without me so I am In. All in. And that means I’ll keep chasing my dreams.
