If there is anything I've learned in my life is (pardon the cliche) never let dreams die. I could work to build a family, buy a house, and go get my
masters, but none of that is what I am passionate about right now.
So there needs to be balance..
If I lived in the now I would continue to live the dangerous lifestyle that I am and never care about the consequences.
If I lived for the future, I would be miserable for now to get what I needed and continue to be miserable for the rest of my life because it would
become the norm.
So live in the now, but always think ahead.
I could do the safe thing and keep my current job, living comfortably numb, but paying bills...
I could go on tour this summer playing music and making nil doing it, as my school loans and credit cards collect interest.
For now, I will do the latter, because I am young, stupid, and an idealist. Its fun to be that way, but I need to evolve at some point.
The thing about this scenario is that we all want the world to be different, but it isn't perfect for anyone, so we need to do what we can to survive
with the highest level of happiness we can.
In some places, for some people, sometimes, it just isn't possible.
