For the longest of time I’ve been dreaming of an exit strategy.
As in, I will reach a certain point in my life where I will sit back and relax.
Doing nothing that will make me reach a higher level of living.
Where I would be satisfied with my lot.
Where I would have “peace.”
But that bubble was burst when John Maxwell said something in an interview he did with Ed Mylett.
It’s one of the things I fight about with my wife to be.
I’m not proud of it.
She always sees us progressing and wanting more for the family.
I’m of the belief that we should live below our means, and expand our means.
But this is a form of procrastination she feels.
Standing still defies nature.
Nature is always moving, growing, developing and changing.
The peace I’m referring to can only be achieved through death.
And even then my body will decay and rot until I’m all clothes and bones.
There is no threshold that I would reach.
Were I could hold on to my success for the rest of my life.
Life won’t allow me to because things are forever changing.
Nothing stays the same.
I always pride myself for going with the trend of universal laws.
But I now realize that I’ve been sabotaging myself.
Shooting myself in the foot.
Life has been challenging lately because I’ve been going against “the flow.”
There’s fun to be had in progress.
There’s fun to be had in process.
I need to remember that.
And to apologize to the wife.
Please forgive me.
I love you.
