surprise yourself.....


Say no once in a while.  It's good for you.

I  recently took a job, a real job, that paid a six-figure salary.  I hated it and it was killing me.  It didn't take me long to realize that.

So today, I quit.  Simple.  I was happier when I lived in a rotting city bus on Kauai.  Happier when I lived in a horse barn in Los Osos, or an old school-house in the Oregon Coast range.

This life here:  14 hour days, traffic, stress, impersonal people....  not worth it for money.  I'd rather live in a cardboard box (which might end up happening anyway) and do it my own way.
