The Life I want

And into the forest I go to lose my mind and find my soul.

Me – Taken by a Friend

I have not written in a while because I have been enjoying life. I have been busy with living. I have been living from moment to moment. The person in the picture you see above is me. That is who I want to be 24/7. I am glad a friend of mine chose to step out of the moment and capture me in the moment. I have my hair doing its natural thing. I am in a relaxed state. I am connecting with people which I absolutely love. I am part of something real.

A couple of us decided to meet before sunrise and go to the desert to just enjoy the moment. It was amazing. I was totally disconnected from my life. Rather, I should say I was totally connected with life. I was just there in the present…aware of nothing else but what surrounds me. At that moment all that mattered to me was connecting with the people and the environment around me.

I feel like connecting with the environment is something that we as humans do not value enough. To be at one with nature. Without any distractions. Just totally present in the moment. Nature has a way of providing that for us. It has a way of demanding our attention and presence. It makes you forget. All you have to do in nature is exist, which is all you can do anyways. In return, nature will take over because well that is its nature. As confusing as that sounds, think about it.

This picture is going to be an inspiration for me. I am going to use that picture of myself to drive myself to get the life I want. I am going to push myself to live the way I want to. In order to live the life I want I need to setup ways of generating a passive income. Sadly, that is the world we live in. A world in which you cannot live without money. Money that enables you and allows you the freedom to live however you want.

In order to do so I need to discover what drives me. I need to figure out what I’m passionate about. That’s what life is all about, Experiences. Living life to its fullest potential and experiencing as many things as possible is what life is all about. That’s my take on it anyways.

There is one thing I am certain of; I want to be the Ammar you see in the picture. I will do whatever I can to achieve that lifestyle.
