The travelers I’ve met who have very little money, who do odd jobs as they journey from country to country, who haven’t carved out the traditional life path that western society demands of us, are often the most free and fulfilled- they have a certain wisdom about them that’s hard to find in an office. They age gracefully. Remember that if you are privileged enough to live in a first world society, you don’t have to do what you’re “supposed” to do. You don’t have to climb the corporate latter, have a job that people find respectable or buy expensive material things. You can get yourself a one-way ticket to somewhere magical and only look back once you’ve experienced all the madness your one little life has to offer you. Because there is nothing you should be doing here.
There are no real rules.
