I care a lot about personal responsibility and growth, so I think of where I want to be and how best to get there in all contexts of my life. I think having an open mind is key to being a worthwhile animal and reconsider my beliefs often. This makes me seem vague at times, or directionless, but sometimes its just about not fighting the awesome around you. I think it's important to realize that a near totality of the obstacles and restrictions we face in life are self-imposed. I think that the simple and the complex have equal virtue and are often coincident. I don't assume a difference between thought and emotion, idea and inspiration, asset and liability, or fear and love- not that I feel them all the same, but rather I've a wide notion of their nature.
I spend a lot of my life outdoors- with all the plants and animals and stuff. I guess I take it for granted having spent a lot of my life without the normal four walls and a roof, but it seems that to most I'm a bit of a nature-boy. I enjoy my technology, clean home, and urban affluence very much, but still I am an animal. I think we need time with silence, slowness, emptiness, and more. ...I mean less.
I don't have expectations about the people I meet or the relationships we'll have. Experience has shown time and time again that it never goes how you expect, so I enjoy much more the surprises of life. I know that as long as I breathe, walk, and talk, I don't really have anything to loose, so I'm open to all manor of extreme occurrence... "Fortune favors the bold" they say- I'm willing to take chances in life and on people.
