Refine my mind, Create, and Love! :)
After achieving many of my travel dreams over the last 7 years i'm looking to find a place to open up my own resort for people to enjoy life at!
Traveling for seven years finding new experiences, great adventures, meeting lovely people. Consider myself kind, optimistic, adventurous, spiritual, and critical thinker.
Side note for this section and to quote a well spoken philosopher: "if you name me, you negate me. By giving me a name a label, you negate all of the other things I could possible be. You lock the partical into being a thing by pinning it down naming it. But at the same time you are creating it defining it to exist." basically you will know nothing of me from what I write here.
Creativity is our highest nature.
I have a ton to say here and it is ever growing but I woould much rather tell you over a beer or coffee.
"The greatest expression of rebellion is joy"
"Fear is the condom of life. It doesn't allow you to enjoy anything."
"Change is as good as an orgasm"
"Anyone can be angry...that's easy. But to be angry with the right person, at the right intensity, at the right time, for the right reason and in the right way... that isn't easy"
"The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help are you freed."
"In the end, so much of the conflict we feel in our hearts is because we’ve split ourselves off from the very life we are living. We partition ourselves from the things with which we are at odds, treating them as unbelonging even as we live them. We vaguely imagine some other place, some better job, some other lover – but the irony is that so much of what makes us unhappy is our own rejection of the life we have made. Eventually we must take our life into our arms and call it our own. We must look at it squarely with all its unbecoming qualities and find a way to love it anyway. Only from that complete embrace can a life begin to grow into what it is meant to become."
