Taking Control of My Life – About Me
It’s hard to believe that I’m a part of the 50 something generation now, and I’m not quite sure how I got here so fast, yet here I am. A few years back I decided to remove myself from the same-o-same-o routine that left me frustratingly unfulfilled. I took a leap and moved to Thailand without a clue as to what I would do to survive, only my meager life savings to keep me afloat in the meantime. The first year I wanted nothing more than to live a healthy life and ride my bike, which turned out to be rather ironic as I found myself in a battle from one health related issue to another and at the same time being in nearly the best shape of my life. The truth is I just wore myself out with too many high octane activities. So I made a few adjustments to my fitness routine and I’m back to feeling good again, most of the time anyway. So with that more or less behind me, I realized that if I want this lifestyle to continue, I’m going to have to earn a living without sacrificing my freedom. That’s the key. Admittedly it’s been and continues to be a challenge, I’ve always been a procrastinator and I guess on some level I always will be, but to really take control of my life, (say that again), MY LIFE, and not just let the current take me where it will, is new for me. And at least for the moment, it’s been worth every bead of sweat and every anxiety attack it has induced. There is a lot of work to do and a lot of unknown territory ahead of me (sigh, deep breath, oh my god!). But it’s ok, I’m living the life I want to live, I’m being creative and most of all, I know where I’m going now.
So, here I am in Thailand, with a destination, a map to get me there, but only limited resources to do so. Can I make it before I run out of gas? Well, I’m going to give it my best shot. TAKING CONTROL, TAKING CONTROL! That’s my mantra: Ohmmm; taking control, taking control, taking control. As well as: Ohmmm; I’m gonna make it, I’m gonna make it, I’m gonna make it :). Staying positive, surrounding myself with positive people and staying away from a self-destructive behavior (another key). It is Thailand after all, lots of lost souls here. Stay focused and on the road
This is my road, “Festivals of Thailand,” only in its infancy, and with it I’ve incorporated many of the things I enjoy doing, e.g., traveling, taking pictures, writing and interacting with people. Sounds like freedom to me and that’s something worth fighting for. Please, take a look and maybe, if I’m lucky, you’ll find something that sparks your interest and points you to something new and interesting that prompts you to take a chance, a leap of faith if you will. I’m at your service, through Festivals of Thailand, hopefully I can help you make that happen.
