A few days ago I watched the trailer for a new documentary about Anthony Bourdain.
I can’t stop thinking about one of the lines I heard.
“Reality was never going to live up to exactly how he pictured it.”
These words struck a chord. They hit home. They hit me hard. I can relate.
I’m a dreamer. I’m a believer. I’m always looking for an adventure.
Reality doesn’t live up to my dreams. Reality doesn’t live up to how I picture it. Reality doesn’t live up to my expectations.
I refuse to settle. I strive for better and more.
Striving for better and more is exhausting. It’s a long, lonely journey. I’m constantly searching and seeking. I’m constantly looking for the next challenge and adventure. I’m constantly running and chasing.
“Life’s about finding a cliff worth jumping off.”
Will my life live up to the picture in my imagination?
