Crossroads

So what’s been going on in my life?
Besides the usual daily grind of working life, the weekend jam sessions, and hanging out with my buddies: not much really.

It’s at a point where I think I’m too comfortable with where I am. I’m not unhappy, don’t get me wrong, and I’m definitely content. But is this what I want? Life could be so much more than what it is right now. But then again, am I too idealistic?

I have a lot of responsibilities right now, and I constantly use them as an excuse to tie me down to what I’m doing right now. Is that being too selfless? Should I just do what I feel or want to do, and go ahead?

Most of you who know me will know that I just want to roam the world, picking up odd jobs every few months, save up enough, move on to the next country and so on. I just want to experience as many different things in life before I die (I wonder when that will be?) just so I can say I did something. I didn’t waste my life away wishing I did something when I could.

Or is what I’m thinking about doing a stupid idea? Should I just forget it and live a “normal” life, one that everybody leads. I don’t know. I really don’t know.

When people talk about crossroads in life, and how hard it is to decide which way to go: I guess I might be facing one now. It’s just that I don’t know how long the path will stay open.

It’s been awhile since I’ve felt this lost.

    I know how you feel, bro, I went through that phase when I was doing what you’re doing, haha.

    I feel that people should set a goal of what they want, and work towards it every day. Always ask yourself, “is what I’m doing now taking me closer to my dream?” and if it’s not, then why are we doing it?

    Wish you all the best in your decision.
