Don’t Get Trapped

Life has a way of putting people into boxes. Whatever you do, don’t get trapped. I’ve met a lot of people in the past year who are brilliant and capable individuals. Because of their education and current life commitments (family, mortgage, etc) they aren’t in a position to better their situation. In most cases these individuals are comfortable. Lots of people in general aren’t looking for greener pastures, they’re just trying to hold onto what they have.

“Knowing there’s a trap is the first step in evading it” – Leto, Children of Dune

I’m speaking directly to my generation right now. I’m not saying don’t buy a house, eventually. What I’m saying is that if your options are to live a life of certainty with predictable outcomes or do something unknown or uncertain, always choose uncertainty. If you ever need a reminder of why, you don’t have to look too hard to find someone who given the opportunity and support would live a completely different life. Actively engage these individuals in a conversation, they will likely tell you of some of their regrets as well as some of their hopes and dreams. Don’t let your fear paralyze you into inaction.

Remember, “mediocrity gets you pears” – Against Me!
