I guess what I'm saying is that somedays I look outside that window and wish I could just break away from the everday routines in life. I wish I could just fly, fly away with my wife to a romantic island and not worry about our daily responsibilities. I guess what I'm saying also is I feel stuck. I'm not refreshed at all and I feel it getting worse within me. Nine Inch Nails has a song called "Everyday is Exactly the Same". I'm kind of at that point right now. I can predict how my day will be depending on the day it is. It is just getting to me I guess.
That's why I believe that any job you work in should require you to take a vacation every 3-4 months. Now, you don't have to go away to some beach resort, but I believe it is imperative that we recharge our battery for life every now and then. I believe both my wife and myself are ready for that recharge. Our vacations to Alaska and Mexico cannot come quick enough (May 9th and September 6th). We need a change in scenery big time. A chance to wake up in the morning with nothing to worry about, nothing to think of except for well...nothing. Shel and I always talk about doing crazy things like backpacking through Europe or traveling around the world to see all the great sights and people of this planet. We are dreamers in a sense. I wouldn't mind just leaving our lives behind to visit the seven wonders of the world or hike the appalachian trail.
The great thing is that we all have the ability to wake up from our lives and recharge our batteries to see a different picture outside our window. While I see a pretty routine picture lately outside my window, I know that soon that picture will be exploding with the many treasures of life. Sometimes you just get stuck in "living" and in these times just being able to live and support my family by having a great job is all that counts. God has truly blessed my wife and I in our situation. We are fortunate and we never forget that.
Still, it is in days like this that I sit next to the window typing my thoughts and I wonder...when will this picture of my life change...only God knows and only time and action will tell...
Until the next time everyone. Thanks for reading.
