Hope Springs Eternal

You know those stories I was talking about?

I neglected to mention the amazingly EPIC events that seem to happen in between those hard times. Highs, lows… Triumphs, failures… Experiences that make you feel truly alive.

When it comes down to it, I’d rather be guilty of straining my patience too much, of spreading myself too thin, of being overzealous, than too safe. Too comfortable. Too boring.

Yes, I might have days where I question the purpose of my efforts, but at the end of the day? I’ve traveled 2,000 miles in the last week. Every morning, I wake up in a different country. I can swear in 9 different languages.

And some people pay for this kind of experience.
