    Good post sir, as always you gave me something to think about.

    I have dreams of “leaving it all behind” and living an unencumbered life. Then I remember that I’ve committed to a mortgage, and I actually like my smartphone, and I like my siblings and my family and my friends even though at one time or another they drive me to drink, curse, and think that the arctic circle might be a nice place to live. Some days it all overwhelms me, I won’t lie but then I remember to breathe, pray, and remember that regardless of what is happening this is all temporary. It will fade, there will be bad days, jobs and people will come and but there will also be fantastic days that will have me riding with the top down, hair flying all over my head, singing loudly and badly at the top of my lungs and not caring. I think it’s all about balance, finding out what brings you joy, and allowing yourself the time away from the crazy to revel in that joy. Those are my moments of starting over 🙂

      Love this insight! I am reminded of an old Bob Marley song. “You’re running, you’re running, you’re running away. But you can’t run away from yourself.”

      As you said, if you learn how to be happy, you can be happy any and everywhere.
