Wrapping up my last few days here in Spokane, Washington; I decided to reflect on my time here.
You see my girlfriend Deanna and I have been living here for about 3 months. In that time I think I have grown as an adult. An adult that eats junk food and play video games still, but I have learned to take care of responsibilities first.
One of the many reasons that I left Miami in the first place was not
just to be freezing my ass off in the northern states but because I knew that I needed a culture shock.
My natural habits are to be lazy, unmotivated, and passive. I want to change all that.
I told myself a year ago that if I didn’t cannonball into the pool that is this world, I would never be able to swim in the deep end of it.
I like to look at it as the endgame content of games like Destiny 2. The Leviathan raid is easily the best content in the game but if you as a player don’t know how to shoot, throw grenades and stay alive you can’t complete the endgame content.
The endgame content is what we all want. We all want to know that we will have another meal and a roof over our head. We have to pass those tutorial stages to learn this game of life. Luckily we can have teachers that give us “tips and tricks” to get a leg up in this game.
My mother has given me the knowledge on how to cook, clean, and pay bills. So now at the age of 27, I really start the endgame content of life. This is where the challenges are real but the rewards at the end are truly worth it.
I think we all want success, and to prosper, but I understand now that I’m going to have to grind life’s endgame content to achieve that.
Next week I’ll be visiting Miami, FL. I’m excited to see my family and friends that are still there but I also look forward to the next place I’ll be living and learning.
