I want to travel the world one day.
I want to do things that scare me, and see things that challenge the way I think. Don’t get me wrong, I hope to see gorgeous cities and landmarks like the next person, but I also want to see the poorest areas of the world. I want to learn from my neighbors directly, rather than reading about them. I want to hear stories and history from those who experienced it, to shake hands with people different than I. I want to eat food that’s rich in culture, learn different tongues and hear what is important in the lives of strangers. I refuse to accept that what is right in front of me is the only correct way to live, that the way I was raised is the only way.
So life, show me artwork, show me great literature from years before I was born, give me a life rich in knowledge so that in turn I may better myself. Allow me friends that are adventurous and enlightening, and allow me a mind that is willing to grow. May somehow along the way I find the courage to act, not only think, and seek the truth wherever the road takes me.
