We love and had to share this post from our friend @diane_wesh
! So many options to lead a fulfilling and adventurous existence for those of us who seek something beyond the norm! 💛・・・
I’m currently 26 years old & I’ve spent the past 20 years of my life going to school—from:
Elementary school to
Middle school to
High school to
3 different colleges
More than half of my life was confined to four walls, but can I be honest? Despite all the years I’ve spent in school, not once did any of my teachers and/or professors educate me on the importance of traveling. .
20+ years of school and no one encouraged me to travel. .
I was only given one option to be successful and that was to obtain as much schooling as possible, get a job, and climb the corporate ladder. There was no alternative way for me to live. I wasn’t given any other options, nor was there a way for me to get out of my one-tracked mind hometown. So, for years I succumbed, gave in, settled for the illusion of the “American Dream.” However, April of 2018, I Quit My Job (yet, again) and boldly declared: “TO HELL WITH THE AMERICAN DREAM!” .
I owe it all to @coolworksjobs
For showing me that there is more than one way to live.
If you haven’t already, go check out the blog I wrote for @coolworksjobs
(Link In Bio) and it provides me with the opportunity to Escape normality. .
