Comfort Leads to Extinction

There has been a thought brewing in my mind for the past few weeks — oddly enough, reflected by my partner in her own blog — that is itching to the point where it cannot be ignored any longer.

I am living a comfortable life: I wake up every morning, go to work, do something I enjoy, and then come back home. I then do any amount of activities, go to bed, and repeat. Every break I have I keep dreaming and day dreaming of what I would do if things were a little or vastly different. More often than not this makes me wonder if I am really doing what I want to do with my life instead of just floating in an ocean — letting the waves carry me somewhere.

It’s time to gain control of things.

Recently I wrote a post about wanting to pursue more creative ventures in my daily life, and after a short discussion with a friend at work, I came to realize that I have been working and doing a lot in the past few years, but I have really had very little time to do what I really want to do. I want to write more, take more pictures, be healthier, and study more.

These are all things that I do in very small amounts in a not very regular basis, which is something that I want to change as soon as possible to take better advantage of every single minute in my day. For time is precious and irreplaceable, and every minute only exists once in a lifetime.

As such I have decided to give myself a few more months to let ideas settle into my head before taking a sort of leap of faith into new ventures. Not necessarily work or personal (for now), but more in regards to my priorities and what I really want to do in the next year, or five years, or maybe even for the next decade.

While the bigger ideas come (or don’t) to be, other will start taking form: This blog, my photography in general, and what will eventually become my Vlog.

This year should be a year of great successes. What will come, I wonder?
