Now that I have gotten everyone’s attention, listen up! 🙂
(I am writing this on a Nook Color, in a moving car, on a winding road, in California, so I apologize for typo’s in advance 🙂
My Life is filled with mixed emotions, many questions, and not enough answers. What do I pack, where is my host family, and most importantly, How do I say goodbye to my loved ones, friends, and family for A YEAR?
This ain’t no joke :), it’s a whole year, into the unkown, like Odysseus from Homer’s Odyssey. It’s adventure, grief, happiness, love, dislike, and everything you can think of and it’s opposite combined.
I am currently vacationing in California, greeting and saying goodbyes to family. We are now on the road, going to Santa Monica, then Los Angeles. Previously, we went camping in Yosemite for two days and managed to somehow find our camping spot, which was literally in the middle of nowhere. It makes me realize how cool life is traveling, especially fixing our rental car with paperclips (that’s another story).
And now, my main point of this post is to answer one question.
What is the meaning of all of this? Why are we here?
Now, stick with me, because I am about to tell you something incredibly important. “How can a 15 year old be saying something so incredibly important?” Watch me….
Life is beautiful. When you look at true beauty, the nature around you, you trully forget the hate, crime, poverty, and dispair in the world. It gives me the same outlook as flying. You trully get a “new view” on the world.
Life is amazing. Believe it or not, just about Everything in this world, works the way you want it to. It is all about your attitude, All The Time. Poverty, Disease, Hate, it all comes from your attitude. Your whole life is the way you have envisioned it since you were placed on this earth, whether it is good or bad. As hard as it is, You attract everything into your life through your thoughts (as learned by The Secret and Landmark Education, which I definetly reccomend everyone should attend once in their life. It really “opens” your eyes to Life’s endless possibilities). Thoughs become Actions.
Do this right now! Look up The Secret, or go to http://www.thesecret.tv and find out what it is. It is the key to success, and it has definetly worked for me. So, something that will helpThis is very imporant, sit down, close your eyes, and visualizefor ten minutes, and think, ” Is this how I want to live? What do I want to do in life”, and imagine it happening. E.x. I want to fly around the world ,solo, during Christmas break in 2014, to set a world record and raise situational awareness and money for St.Judes Children’s Hospital. I will do it. How do I prepare, even before getting a license? I envision myself doing it, and so should you. And, it’s so much fun!
Life is fun! Go out an do what you love. Set goals. Achieve them. Your saying right now, ” Well your a teenager and don’t have to worry about anything.” Forget about me right now, because this blog is for you! YOLO. You only live ONCE, so live life like it’s your last day on this earth (but be smart about what you do, cause happiness, not harm).
My main point of this post is to answer one question.
What is the meaning of all of this? Why do we do what we do?
I will make this post before and after Germany, different of course, on how life really changed for me.
Life is to pursue your true motivations, or things that make you happy. The things that give you goosebumps, a pounding heart, and make you feel amazing. While pursuing this, you go out of your way to help others around you, your brothers and sisters, and don’t expect anything in return, except the accomplishment of your goals. Love, fun, money, and joy will come if you do that, but it is not enough to just head out thinking that in life, or it won’t work. You must be educated FINANCIALLY in order to pursue this. As hard as it is to admit, many school teachings are outdated.An example, History, it’s not the truth that is told, but what others want you to believe. You must educate yourself, based on your oppinions and what you believe in. You must be aware of your surroundings, must be smart, safe, and plan ahead. I wish you the best and hope you do the same for me. As Tigger said to Pooh Bear, TTFN, Ta Ta For Now!
PS: if you really want to know how to succeed in today’s world, you need to read these two books. “The Secret” (I also reccomend the movie) and “Why A student’s work for C students, and why B students work for the Government”. If you are a kid my age, definetly read the two! It will prepare you for the harsh, but real world.
These two books and movie will change your life for the better.
I really mean it!
It will be one the biggest and smartest choices you will ever make!
I will update you on my host family soon, when I get one!
