Stepping out of the Norm
 

One of my favorite things about traveling is being able to see everything you want to see. If you drive to your destinations then you can just pull over whenever you want and take any detour you want. If you see a cool underground lake then you can pull over and go take a quick tour. Maybe you want to see Mammoth Cave and your passing through Kentucky, well then just pull over and hit the national park. Everything is an option when you drive to your destinations and I love that ability. I love being able to do what you want, when you want and just enjoy life. 

Sometimes I think we get caught up in the normal ideas of what life should be. We get caught up on social media, bills, pets, people we need to please, work, and everyday life occurrences. We get so caught in our normal routines and worry about every little thing that we forget there is literally an entire planet that is around us just waiting to be explored. We get glued to our phones and think that seeing pictures is enough and just scroll past it after a few minutes of thinking "Someday that will be me" and then we move on and go back to normal life. 

There are so many people that I talk to on a daily basis that never really go anywhere. They sit in one spot, go about their day, complain about bills and then say how they want to go on vacation but never do. All of it is just a cycle and it is so hard to break. It's difficult for people to step out of the norm and just go somewhere. It's hard to just be different than everybody else. All you think about is the 401k and how you need to work your ass off so that one day you can go to those places. The truth of the matter is when you do retire you won't be able to do half of the stuff you wanted to do when you were younger. Of course, there are other options but being mobile, able to go long distances, and just have chances to do everything and anything without pain or hindrance is really the way to go. 

I just hope people realize that sooner rather than later. Its time to live your life and take those steps to get out. Its time to take time for yourself and live life in the best way possible before everything explodes.
