It is 10:35AM on a Sunny morning, temps will be about 70 degrees today... not a cloud in the sky. I'm sitting here in my "cubicle", in the office of a large insurance company, responding to people's "i need this.. can you set up this meeting... how do you do this...". And i think to myself, that if any of these people really knew what was so important in life, they probably wouldn't be here. But yet they are all blinded by big bucks. Sometimes I sit here and wonder and think about my life at 26 years old. Is it really worth having all that extra money to be miserable by 40 years old? To have more gray hairs at 40 than a 60 year old does? (sorry - just got interrupted by a question about sending a fax). I dont make alot of money, but i get by and i'm paying my bills off. I have job security, health insurance, 4 weeks paid vacation, and can work from home when I need to. I also have love handles, a little "spare tire" and am so exhausted when i get home from work because i do NOTHING active all day long.
So my plan is... enjoy my 2 beach vacations this year... maybe a trip back to savannah to visit my old friends later in the year.. collect my bonus check next year in march... and then let my hair down (its actually really short, but u get the point), quit this job, and go experience LIFE and what the world has to offer.
Its scary to think about but exciting. So, while yall are in Montana, Alaska, Wyoming or some other state RIGHT NOW, looking at the mountains, working for a "not so great" paycheck, hiking, fishing, or one of the other many things you could be doing, please remember that there's at least one person this very second who is jealous of you and can't wait to be there next year.
Hope yall have a great season!
