hold fast


& i'll be home

While we are young the idea of death or failure is intolerable to us; even the possibility of ridicule we cannot bear. But we have also an unconquerable faith in our own stars, and in the impossibility of anything venturing to go against us. As we grow old we slowly come to believe that everything will turn out badly for us, and that failure is in the nature of things; but then we do not much mind what happens to us one way or the other. In this way a balance is obtained.

1. There is a reason why you are where you are and although you may not see it now, when you do, you’ll see the beauty you missed the first time

2. It’s ok to call your mom at 2 in the morning

3. It’s ok to call her crying

4. It’s ok to cry period

5. Whenever you are down, don’t play sad Nirvana or Coldplay songs for too long, blast anything that will drive those thoughts away even if it is One Direction

6. Watch youtube videos when you feel lonely

7. Don’t try and make friends based on how cool they look…your real friends will show their coolness in time and it will be so much better

8. Don’t take 8am’s unless you have to

9. Your grades will be there, but the times driving late at night around the city making memories won’t

10. It takes at least 2 people to clear wrap a car

11. There is always time for a skype call, google chat, or even facetime

12. Make sure you eat before you start drinking

13. Patience, though at bitch at times, is your biggest teacher

14. You have every right to be angry, but do not dwell in it for long for the world will and is going to go on without you and you are meant to be in that movement instead of standing still in anger

15. Have confidence in what you wear, no one else will wear that outfit the way you are

16. Don’t wear open toed shoes to a party you will either have something spilled on your feet or get them stepped on and it’s not worth it

17. Dry cleaner sheets take oil out of your hair

18. Laugh. Even when you don’t feel like it because, it really is the best medicine

19. Singing helps too

20. The people who you can call crying or laughing the first night you are drunk, or the first night you are homesick, and stay on the phone with you are the ones that will stay with you for a lifetime

Did you know, you can quit your job, you can leave university? You aren’t legally required to have a degree, it’s a social pressure and expectation, not the law, and no one is holding a gun to your head. You can sell your house, you can give up your apartment, you can even sell your vehicle, and your things that are mostly unnecessary. You can see the world on a minimum wage salary, despite the persisting myth, you do not need a high paying job. You can leave your friends (if they’re true friends they’ll forgive you, and you’ll still be friends) and make new ones on the road. You can leave your family. You can depart from your hometown, your country, your culture, and everything you know. You can sacrifice. You can give up your $5.00 a cup morning coffee, you can give up air conditioning, frequent consumption of new products. You can give up eating out at restaurants and prepare affordable meals at home, and eat the leftovers too, instead of throwing them away. You can give up cable TV, Internet even. This list is endless. You can sacrifice climbing up in the hierarchy of careers. You can buck tradition and others’ expectations of you. You can triumph over your fears, by conquering your mind. You can take risks. And most of all, you can travel. You just don’t want it enough. You want a degree or a well-paying job or to stay in your comfort zone more. This is fine, if it’s what your heart desires most, but please don’t envy me and tell me you can’t travel. You’re not in a famine, in a desert, in a third world country, with five malnourished children to feed. You probably live in a first world country. You have a roof over your head, and food on your plate. You probably own luxuries like a cellphone and a computer. You can afford the $3.00 a night guest houses of India, the $0.10 fresh baked breakfasts of Morocco, because if you can afford to live in a first world country, you can certainly afford to travel in third world countries, you can probably even afford to travel in a first world country. So please say to me, “I want to travel, but other things are more important to me and I’m putting them first”, not, “I’m dying to travel, but I can’t”, because I have yet to have someone say they can’t, who truly can’t. You can, however, only live once, and for me, the enrichment of the soul that comes from seeing the world is worth more than a degree that could bring me in a bigger paycheck, or material wealth, or pleasing society. Of course, you must choose for yourself, follow your heart’s truest desires, but know that you can travel, you’re only making excuses for why you can’t. And if it makes any difference, I have never met anyone who has quit their job, left school, given up their life at home, to see the world, and regretted it. None. Only people who have grown old and regretted never traveling, who have regretted focusing too much on money and superficial success, who have realized too late that there is so much more to living than this.
