At this moment, all I can see are endless miles of the best playground on earth. As I was standing there, letting it soak in, I realized my brain was battling the inner “adult” in me who is constantly yapping about responsibility, maturity, and acting like a grown up. The one that keeps telling me to work more, be more responsible, and that success is the most important thing in the world… It’s ironic, because I grew up thinking I had to go to school, get married, get a high paying job, have kids, and conform to society. However, for some reason, I resisted that pathway. It didn’t feel right to me. I mean, at one point I did get married, I had a dog, a mortgage and was a full blown adult, but was I happy? HELL NO!! So, I peaced out of that life, and started a new pathway of my own.
It has only been in the past few years or so that I’ve realized that growing up is all about respecting myself, my passions, my loved ones, and surrounding myself with epic people who share this common vibration. I don’t want to squash my inner child. I love that spirit in me! It is the source of energy that makes me feel alive.
I love to play. I love playing with my friends. And that is why when the mountains were calling, I didn’t hesitate to jump on a plane. There were many people that couldn’t believe that I would do this on a whim, and told me all the reasons why they would never be able to go on a trip like that. But I say, fuck that shit. There is so much more to life than the 9 to 5 daily grind. And I am going to fill all of that space with my passions, my favorite people and tell my inner adult to relax, have fun and always give myself permission to embrace the child within… #myplayground
