into the wild

i watched this movie on my way to seoul. it showed me how much we trap ourselves in our own limitations.

"if we admit that human life can be ruled by reason, the possibility of life is destroyed"

why should we follow the rules of what seems most rational or live a life with out coming face to face with what scares us the most. not always living by what comes most easy for us. or never doing anything bc of the risk that it might fall through. i dont want to live a life wondering, "what if..."

when miles was in colorodo and i told him to be safe- he said, 'i cant say that i will.' he is a perfect example of living life to the fullest. taking everything for what its worth. he has a certain freedom and joy about his life that has a sort of recklessness about it that inspires me.

"if you want something in life then reach out and grab it"

this movie gives me peace about the life set before me. i am at a loss for what it could bring but that is ok. there has yet to come a season of my life that i havent felt loved and supported, or felt like i wasnt learning something new.

"the core of mans spirit comes from new experiences"

"whatever you do, don't be bored, this is absolutely the most exciting time we could have possibly hoped to be alive. And things are just starting" -waking life.

we have only one life to live and time seems to move faster every year. it only seems to stop when i choose to live in the moment. i dont know whats right or wrong any more but i do know that for the past 10 years i was waiting for something that never came and i wont wait anymore. i cant wait anymore.
