A day to day acount of the whacky and wonderful world of Muggaz - i tend to be having too much fun these days, and often cannot remember moments due to debauchery - its time the internet repayed my loyalty by recording my antics.
Don't be afraid to live your dreams
Published on October 11, 2005 By Muggaz In Just Hanging Out
I always thought the hardest part about leaving my friends and family for an extended period of time would be how much I would miss them while I am gone. At the moment, I am not even thinking about them, and I am somewhat ashamed to admit that I am having no trouble at all detaching myself from the outcome. I am not ashamed to say that I thought I would struggle, and in light of these new findings, I discover myself planing extensive adventures in the not to distant future!

Maybe I should wait till the chicken hatches, but I can’t find myself sitting in this smug office job for too much longer – I am far too young to settle down, and there are far too many escapades awaiting me – I read a blog of my friend the other day, and she is afraid of becoming middle aged and boring too early, and I have to say that is the last thing I wish to happen to me! I have achieved a sense of total confidence in my abilities in whatever I choose to do, and I am going to take the advice of many Hollywood movies and wise yet regretful elders – don’t be afraid to dream.

My world is brimming with opportunity and adventure, and I would be foolish not to grasp each with both hands – failure is not even an option, if I don’t achieve the end goal, there is no shame, as I will meet countless new and exciting people along the way, not to mention insurmountable amount’s of fun to be had. I don’t even know what the goal is, I just know there is more out there for me, and I refuse to settle for mediocrity.

Perhaps April will roll around, and I will want nothing more than to settle with my family back in Melbourne, Australia – perhaps the prospect of a relationship with a girl may sound enticing, maybe I will want to settle back into my successful (thus far) career, with a new sense of perspective, and admire what I have. I am going to speculate – it’s not likely. You don’t spend as many years as I have in the corporate environment without learning a few things – failing to plan is planning to fail, and I have plenty of ideas mapped in my head.

I am scheduled to arrive back in Melbourne in late April next year – it will be great to see my family and friends, and maybe just knuckle down and save some cash. In this time I can apply for my English passport so no Visa is required to work in Europe, at this point in time, I plan on being invited to my job back in Vail, which of course depends on how much I enjoy it this time around – no arguments there. Upon completion of my second stint in Colorado, I envisage heading to Europe to enjoy a summer, maybe working a few jobs here and there for some cash, and then waiting for the northern summer to come round then hit the mountains again.

Alas, I am running before I can crawl – and if I have learnt anything in life, it is to take each day as it comes and work from that. I am blessed with the skill of making good reactive choices, so I am not concerned with where I am going or how I will get there – I just need to get there. I know exactly who I am, though I am familiar with whom I want to be as well, and I know it is so much more. Time to strap in ad enjoy the ride.

Wow! Muggaz I'm so looing forward to your adventures! You're doing what most people (me included) dream of doing. Just letting go of the familiar, going out into that big world and living your life, to the fullest. I used to do that, and those were some darn good days of fun. I've come to realise how much I miss it and want to do it again ( I din't travel all over the world, but rather all over my little world and met some incredible people and had a lot of adventures).

Enjoy your adventures and as you say just take one day at a time as they come, that's definately the best. Looking forward to hearing about them!

That's not an over-used line of yours or anything, you n00b.

well, i could sugar coat it and suggest that those USA chicks are ready for anything that comes their way (figuratively speaking)

but that would be lying.
