Perseverance

As impossible as the world may be to navigate, as arbitrary any goal may seem, and as lacking in meaning it all may appear to have; the realm of possibility presented before you each day begs for a cause.

In less than 9 months, I will be hiking through Japan in an attempt to prove something to myself. Each day before that, during that, and after that, should be recognized as a journey in itself.

Over the past few months, I’ve been going to a gym roughly four days a week, studying Japanese, and saving money. I come home every night and wonder exactly why am I going through all of this. It’s taken so much time away from everything else I want to do. I guess the answer is just perseverance.

You see, my goal is to help. I want to help the world, the individuals in it, and provide a manuscript for others to do the same. So far it’s been really difficult. As many of you know, I’ve spent months dropped out of blogging from being too busy. I’ve questioned many things in my life, and I find myself changing every day.

I think we all go through this process on the track towards any goals. For me, It’s hard not to over think, it’s hard to choose a more difficult option. And sometimes, it’s even difficult to get out of my warm bed.

So, I have a new promise to myself; A promise I will keep with me from this day. I think we’re happiest on our way towards something meaningful. So, with rejuvenated and renewed effort – I’m making that promise public. I hope, by doing so, it will encourage others to do the same.

My promise:

Avoid entropy like the plague.

Who’s with me?

    YES! ; ) I kept meaning to check out your site..its looking really good! And Im so happy for you I cant believe you are literally doing everything you wanted to: learning Japanese (answering the beginning and end to a number of goals simultaneously), being in Japan, doing your hike, your site, finding new and inventive ways to be ‘useful’ (your terminology not mine ; ) to humanity, and Im sure many others I dont know about.
    Anyway I know because of the nature of reality and its ever evolving state the question can constantly nag at you- why am I doing this- even when it is a long time goal being realized. But I think as long as we stay flexible while persistent both extincts can possibly be answered..? (accomplishing a goal and staying true to the ebb and flow of nature)
    Point being- your doing great! : D
