What happens when most people are heading in the same direction but that might be a bit different from the road that you want to go. Or maybe you are looking for some detours along the way. Do you still go with the flow or do you try to walk your own way?
Life is good
When do you get so old that you start to look back on your life? Or do you ever? For me, looking back a bit I realize that there has been quite a few things going on in my life. I am trained as a physicist, a military officer and an engineer. I have both studied and worked internationally. And in my last work position my tasks varied from driving masked cars in the Arizonian desert in the middle of the night and being stopped by the local sheriff, to hosting an official inauguration ceremony in China accompanied by company executives, local TV and government officials. And most of the time I just don’t see things coming until I am in the middle of it.
Sometimes, people that I meet comment on that I seem to have done so many things in my life (and I am usually just telling a bit). And that I am still so young! (Also, not many guess that I have already passed 40…) To me, I have not even tried to do many things, it have just kind of happened to turn out that way. Maybe with some assistance of my curious and stubborn mind of course. But I am a curious person and I like to learn and explore. The time I have had so far this year have also made me think a bit more about this side of me. So after some consideration (a lot, actually) I have decided to give myself a bit more time outside the normal everyday grind. Instead of heading back to the office in January as planned I am taking a leap of faith. I have quit my job. I have no real plan. But I am exited to walk this road for a bit.
