In my mind it seems so black and white, so obvious:  Live the life you want to live, venture, do the things you dream about doing with the ones you love. However, I realized my actions in my day-to-day life had become completely contradictory to my personal philosophy. I had been working a job I was not passionate about, staring at a screen, in a windowless office, for years.  To be honest, I started to feel my soul being drawn from my body. Yes, that may sound dramatic but it’s the best way to describe how I was feeling.  I wasn’t experiencing. I wasn’t enriching my mind or spirit and it felt monotonous and dead.  Sure, it was safe and comfortable.  I had a salary, benefits and 401k and blah blah blah.  But who decided that’s what success is?  Who says that is what’s supposed to make you satisfied or happy?  I’ve heard this story before and I’m sure you have too, but sometimes you have to hear things over and over again before you have the courage to change your current situation, to stop fearing and start living.  I finally told myself, “If you’re unhappy, it’s your fault.  And you need to take control of your life if you want to feel fulfilled.”
