26-Leave the Great Indoors


Something a good friend of mine said recently got me thinking...
Most people live their lives looking through boxes or screen. They hop in their cars to drive to work and what are they doing? They're in their own little box, staring through the "screen" of their windshield until they get to their job. Then they get to work and sit in a chair and stare at a computer screen all day. Get back into the car, head home and stare at the television screen. Either that or they're staring out a window, another little box separating them from all of the things that truly mean something. It's time for everyone to take a step outside, both literally and figuratively. Step outside of all of your boxes; all of those screens you stare at, into, and out of day after day. Go outside, breathe in the fresh air and just be. It's even more simple than it sounds. Quit relying on your boxed in little world and leap into something unknown. The fear may be crippling, but I guarantee it'll be worth it in the end. Stop clinging to all the things that you think you need, and get more in touch with what you really want. It's the only way to live and the only way to be truly happy.

  2. I completely agree! People say I'm nuts for walking my dogs twice a day. We live in a house with a fenced-in backyard...they don't NEED to be walked twice a day...but I want to do it! I need the time outside and I can't understand how people can live their lives so...shut in, if you will.

  3. 生存乃是不斷地在內心與靈魂交戰;寫作是坐著審判自己。. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
