The Birthday Wish

      Year 35 was a great ride and hoping to continue that for many years to come. I started this year out with a few goals and projects. One being to have 35 adventures. I thought that may be too large of a goal, but after the first month or so I knew it was going to surpass that. I’m not talking about climbing Mt. Everest adventures, rather getting out and doing something cool and experiencing life outside my comfort zone. One of my deepest fears is that of mediocrity. I found myself experiencing adventure every day because of my mindset. Yes, I have responsibilities of a full time job, family, and all the commitments that comes with it and more, but the older I get I realize that if I don’t make time to do the things I want to do, then I will be the old man with all the regrets on my death bed. A quote comes to mind “I don’t want to die without any scars” – Tyler Durden in Chuck Palahniuk’s, Fight Club. I don’t necessarily mean physically even though I have picked up a few… every day you connect with people in the real world, Facebook, Twitter, or any other source that have a lasting effect on your web of humanity, scars if you will that affect how you interact with others. I have experienced deep joy, fear, love, and sadness the last year just to name a few emotions. I feel it is important to try and experience life from a state of abundance rather than scarcity. Some people say I read too much into things and think too deeply for my own good… perhaps, but I don’t want to go through life with my blinders on. I feel that looking at all angles gives me a better understanding of life and the universe I reside in. So this is my birthday wish… I implore anyone who reads this to get out of your comfort zone and experience something you have never before, grow your consciousness and mind. And treat people (even the ones you don’t care for) better than you did yesterday. This wish is easier said than done, and no one is perfect, but try your best and work to be an expert at everything you do. I promise you it will not steer you wrong. I send my love out to anyone this finds. – Jason
