Bonjour my lovely listeners, This week, I would like to share with you my discontent with social pressure that you should be and possess such and such by the age of 30 or so. I’m 39, I do not own a house yet, I do not have a family of my own, I do not have what most people would call a normal job, and I do not care about any of it. I’m currently thinking of vagabonding for a full year, and I can’t not wait. Of course I will be keeping up my podcast while traveling, which I think is going to be an amazing experience. I do not feel like I wasted my life, on the contrary, I feel I have gained an amazing, life changing personal experience by moving to the UK at the age of 19 years old, doing the music band things, work in so many restaurants and bars, I have been a dessert maker, sandwich maker, a pot wash, postman, landscape gardener, a carpenter, laundry worker in hospital, hotel night watcher, and I keep adding to the list still today, because I love to try new things. Today if you listen to what society demands of us, it’s far to say I am considered a failure and should get a grip, get real, get a real job (whatever that is) and settle down to make a baby with someone I will sure enough consider a total stranger 5 years down the line, and be content and feel lucky, because compared to other people I got loads of great things going for myself…? F*** That, I am living my life the way I see fit, I am living my life on my own terms, I am on top form and I feel I am just getting started in my new found life. As you know, I quit smoking last month, now I quit alcohol, I don’t smoke joint anymore, I stopped taking cocaine, I am not wanking as much as I was, and I mean far less, it’s getting well under control, I ‘m actually now been an addict to sports, as I exercise furiously every single day, and I feel unbelievably great , like the best I ever felt in my life. We have one life, one journey, to find, to discover ourselves, understand who were really are, what is our purpose, our gift to the world, you all have a part to play, we all are special in our own unique way, yet at the same time we are a tiny dot of atoms arranged in a particular order. In our journey we may suffer, but we will also experience great joy, love even, and only for that, even if ephemeral, as It may not last, would you swap a few months of that special relationship with that person for anything, after all love can move a mountain, can bring the best in some, and it can bring to disappear when one loses it, but then do we really value something only we it is taken from us? I believe in the people we meet along the way in life, we keep something from them, and in turn you give something for them to keep, and we also learn something about ourselves, therefore failure when something has been learnt is never a failure, but necessary for us to grow further as a human being, Go out my friend, try new things, fall in love, let yourself go and be free of any limitation you once gave to yourself, you are beautiful and the world awaits you, right now. I love you and you are enough, now go experience your life in all its forms, do what you always wanted to do, just ask of life what you really want.
