Today is May 1. Two days ago it was close to 80 degrees and sunny. Today, it’s SNOWING! Which, by the way, none of the local meteorologists knew anything about. In fact I just heard one of them say, “Well, there may be a few flurries going on right now.” Ummm it’s a full-on snowstorm at my house! Weather has been a heated topic on this blog. As seen here. And listen, I know that complaining doesn’t do much, but I cannot not say something about it.
Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about maybe not staying in Utah forever. So, maybe it’s time I stopped complaining about shitty weather and moved some place where I won’t have to. Easier said than done, right? I mean if I keep doing the whole freelance thing, I can technically live anywhere that provides me with a decent airport nearby. Rob’s job is a different story. I can dream though. Hell, maybe I can do more than dream. In fact, Rob, my brother and I have kind of a brilliant plan to simplify our lives and live more sustainably. I’m not going to tell you, because we’re still working out the details. Trust me that it’s brilliant though.
The thing is that I want to be a bit of a dreamer. I don’t mean that I want to be unrealistic or irresponsible. I just mean that I want to do more than just talk about an idea. I want to do everything within my power to make it happen. And if it doesn’t, at least I tried. I’m that person that sees a documentary about someone making a dramatic change; someone living on their own terms, and I’m inspired beyond words but all I do is talk about it. I’ll tell everyone I know how great the film was and say things like, “Why don’t we do this?” And then I do nothing.
I’m feeling the need to try. And I know you have no idea what it is I’m even talking about, but send your positive energy my way. I promise to do the same in return.
