Bandits - Went out in search of an epic sunset and, after much exploring down dirt roads all around Lake Perris, @mark_avila and I were resigned to going home empty handed. Then he spied these two hiding out in an open part of a roof and our adventures suddenly bared fruit. A local on a bike who was having an intense conversation with himself let us know the bigger of the two was female and blind in one eye. The popcorn was definitely not from me.
Two days ago I made a big life decision, and some may say it's a brave one. Although I do feel lost, confused, and even scared right now, I'm also relieved — I finally did something to change my life around. I have never been a conformist, so normality and stable life is just not something I could live with (I'm sure it might be an ideal life to many others and I'm not criticizing the lifestyle). I have to constantly feel I'm living on the edge and constantly improving and learning everyday. If I settle, the best will never come because I won't ever have a chance to meet it. I can't say that I figured out what I'm after exactly for my life, but I sure have figured out what I don't want, and that's equally important too.
As someone who's been through a lot for my age, I know I'll be fine very soon because nothing really can knock me down anymore. But this is what I learned: say no to anything stresses you out, because while change is always scary, it's also scarier to have to be miserable everyday. "Are you happy?" should really just be the first and foremost guideline for anything. So if you're currently stuck with a job you don't like, or a relationship, or anything, leave it, and climb that mountain and sit on its edge, now.
