The interesting thought is this: My skillset is very viable, and if I wanted to make more money I could find a job in less than a month. But instead I am riding along on this bike trip, trying to answer a question that is very important to me: What do I WANT to do next? I am taking this trip partially for it's own sake, but also as part of a quest to find a new sense of balance in my life.
So much of my thought is bent around what I would choose to produce, what I would be inspired to contribute to, that I am missing the forest for the trees. There is a larger point here that should be obvious: I am clearly not to content to spend my savings traveling around the world and relaxing, because I really like doing work. I am absolutely no good at spending money just to spend it and going on adventures just to have them, to say I've done them, to differentiate myself from some social group. I am constantly scrutinizing everything around me to find a deeper meaning, or solve a problem. It's what I do. And I don't think there is anything else I would rather do.
The entire landscape of work and exploration is accessible to me, now more than ever, because of my resume and resources. I need to keep finding stuff that I would love to explore and have always been afraid of trying. I need to keep pushing my own boundaries.
