‘We are torn between nostalgia for the familiar and an urge for the foreign and strange. As often as not, we are homesick most for the places we have never known.’
This quote does something to me, I just haven’t yet figured out what.
I am so uninterested in a life lived in one place, and absolutely not interested in a steady life, a life lived guided by fear. For instance, to me it seems incredibly boring to have the same job for more than five years.
I want to be able to quit my job without the fear of not finding a new one. I want to be able to buy a ticket to anywhere and just leave the world behind, whenever I feel like it.
I never want to be afraid of change, because change is either good or bad, when it’s good it’s awesome and when it’s bad you learn from it. I know that’s quite impossible, change is always scary. In two years high school will be over for me, and I’m already terrified.
But I guess fearless doesn’t means that you’re not afraid, it means being terrified but doing it anyway.
That’s the kind of life I want, not being guided by fear but by dreams and passion. Because life is meant to do the things you love to do, and you can’t do certain things you love when you let yourself be guided by fear. And travel. Travel as much as I can. So yeah, I got the Wanderlust syndrome. I don’t think life is meant to be lived in one place.
Love & Peace
