What’s Stopping you?

backpack

I woke up missing the road less traveled… I’ve been feeling like that a lot over the past few days…

I wan to get up, pack a bag and run away!

I want to disappear…

I want to get lost and find myself in places I’ve never been. I want to get away from this crazy thing they call life… The rules I don’t understand and the madness that makes no sense.

The guy in the mirror asked me “what’s stopping you?”

I stared back at him and, to be honest, I didn’t know what to say. There is nothing stopping me but myself.

No… That’s a lie… It has to be, right?!?!?

And then I tried to look at all the things that might be keeping me anchored…

They look like a bunch of excuses! What am I waiting for? What’s REALLY keeping me here?

I’ve asked myself this exact same question once before… This prompted me to become a wanderer, a nomad for a whole year. It introduced me to some amazing people, all with their own unique traits and things I’ve learned from them in their own way. It opened windows and doors to experiences I’d never think of otherwise.

It gave me ideas, and woke me up to a whole sub-culture that I never thought could be such a great thing…

And for a time it was awesome… Come to think of it… The only reason even tried to find my roots again was Nat… I think I’d be happy still be living off a rucksack, waking up in different places… surrounded by different people… Immersed in different lives… Different stories…

I write this sat in my room… The enormous space only for myself feeling so empty…

The one thing I’d change in the whole experience, is the fact that I didn’t have anyone to share the moments with…

I feel like I found this companion in Blue… Someone that might be about as mad as I am, and that could probably crave the adventure as much as I do… The prospect excites me and scares me at the same level… We’ve been talking about this and the feeling I get is that she asks that same exact question herself… “What’s stopping me?”

I don’t know if she has the answer either…

Life feels like it suspended in mid-air right now… Delicate… And I don’t know if it will crash or it will fly.

Life is weird… And it feels so much simpler in the road less traveled…. “What’s stopping me?”

Hasta La Vista…

Sometimes…

Sometimes you have things to say that you have no way how…

It might not be the time… Or the bridges might be burned… Or you simply have no idea how to do it…

That’s me today… I have loads to say but for the 1st time I don’t know how or don’t have the courage to say it…

So I’ll let her say it for me…

The right person will get the message and understand it… And the right person will know the meaning of the message  if the message ever gets to it’s destination…

One can hope…

All things in good time…

…And a lesson learned…

**Disclaimer: The characters in the story below are fictional and any similarity to real life people is mere coincidence**

A man and his wife  laying in bed late at night having a light hearted conversation. It goes a bit like that:

  • Wife: If I died before you do, will you get married again?
  • Husband: If course not!!
  • Wife: No? Why not?? Don’t you like being married???
  • Husband: *Sighs* OK… of course I would get re-married!
  • Wife: *sporting sad puppy eyes* Would you???
  • Husband: I would. But only because it was so good being married to you!
  • Wife: And you would sleep with her in our bed?
  • Husband: Of course honey! Where did you expect us to sleep?
  • Wife: And you would put down my photos and put hers up instead?
  • Husband: I suppose it’s only natural…
  • Wife: And she would drive my car???????????
  • Husband: Of course not… She doesn’t drive…
  • Wife: *long silence*
  • Husband: *in his mind* OH! FUCK!

Lesson learned: NEVER prolongue a subject with your wife/partner/girlfriend/etc more than absolutely necessary… only nod / or shake your head and say “yes dear” or “no dear”… It’s in their nature to read between the lines and understanding ONLY what they want.

THAT tip can save you a headache and a long time in the dog house…

See?? UrbanVox can be educational… :)
