I Live a Dream Life - I am Grateful

I Live a Dream Life - I am Grateful
“Heads, Carolina Tails, California.”

This is truly my life, I can do anything I want, “whenever wherever.”

I sometimes become incredibly grateful, I am told to remember to be grateful because grateful people do not get drunk. I am recovering alcoholic who for one day a time has stayed sober for 22 years. I almost died, I did not die, I now am living.

I know one of you reading this is sitting in an office, bored out of your brain, hoping to find the escape hatch. When you find your dream, you will stop dreaming, you will be living the dream.

I am such a lucky man, I live a dream life, I am so grateful the good Gods have given me this life. I never dream of doing something else, sometimes I dream about having a million dollars. However, what would I do different?

Hire more Taxis.
Eat more Pizza.
Buy more computer toys.
Go to Afghanistan, yes, this I would do, before it becomes boring. ( I do not have the money today, maybe tomorrow!)
Live in an expensive hotel in Tokyo, Japan, New York, City and San Paulo, Brazil.

Please read the word to this song, I think they describe your feeling, they describe your dream. Sometimes I want to push people, I want to shove them, I want them to live and not die a slow death.


Baby, what do you say we just get lost?
Leave this one horse townlike two rebels without a cause.
I got people in Boston.
Ain't your daddy still in Des Moines?
We can pack up tomorrow.
Tonight, let's flip a coin

Heads, Carolina Tails, California.
Somewhere greener, somewhere warmer.
Up in the mountains, down by the ocean.
Where? It don't matter, as long as we're goin'
Somewhere together. I've got a quarter.
Heads, Carolina Tails, California.

We can load what we own in the back of a U-haul van.
Couple modern day Moses', searchin for the promised land.
We can go four hundred miles before we stop for gas.
We can drive for a day, and then we'll take a look at the map.

Heads, Carolina Tails, California.
Somewhere greener, somewhere warmer.
Up in the mountains, down by the ocean.
Where? It don't matter, as long as we're goin'
Somewhere together. I've got a quarter.
Heads, Carolina Tails, California.

We're gonna get outta here if we gotta ride a Greyhound bus.
Boy, we're bound to outrun the bad luck that's tailin' us

Heads, Carolina Tails, California.
Somewhere greener, somewhere warmer.
Up in the mountains, down by the ocean.
Where? It don't matter, as long as we're goin'
Somewhere together. I've got a quarter.
Heads, Carolina Tails, California.

O---oh, California! Carolina! California!

Would you become a Hobo to escape, would you end your life to start your life?

Would you give yourself permission to be you, not me, not a story, but you, that person in your dreams?

I guess someone, somewhere must of given me a trick quarter. I keep getting tails. Oh well, if I am going to be stuck somewhere I guess California isn't that bad of a place to be. If it is any consolation I do get limited visitation to the rest of the world on the weekends! :)

Keep the dream going - if you get that million dollars - I'm your best friend! lol

Awesome - I work in a high rise building for a bank doing "market research." Which is to say, they pay me to sit in a cubicle and read your posts...

Every one here hides the internet in email windows to make it look like we are really working... But very few people here in "Marketing" actually do any real work...

Deciding what you want to do your life?

Frank, you have many lives, not just one, you truly can have many lives.

Who told you that you could only have one life?

I was a Philosophy Major in University.

I have been in my life.

1. Bunkbed Rental Services at Indiana University.
2. Car Salesman in Bloomington, Indiana at Tom O'Daniel Ford
3. Factory Foreman in factory that made panel office furniture.
4. Bellman in Port St Lucie Florida, Holiday Inn
5. Manufactured Waterbeds in Midland Michigan.
6. Concrete Crew Leader who did the layout of factories and set up forms for Dock Levelers at loading docks of Factories.
7. Superintendent of Commercial Contractor company that built factories.
8. Subcontractor that retrofitted Frito Lay distribution centers around the USA.
9. Carpenter in Fort Wayne, Indiana
10. Real Estate investor in Fort Wayne, Indiana
11. Real Estate Broker in Fort Wayne, Indiana
12. Internet Business Manager.
13. Writer, something like that, hard to define this job.

You can have many lives, but the fear of economic insecurity is real. A person earning 10 dollars per hour earns about 3 times more than they need to survive, however the spend all of it, a person that saves money can do anything, the consumer who spends money without a stop is trapped in a job.

On the other hand, I do recommend you not decide what to do, just do something, the end will be the same. I do whatever, whenever, I just do not prioritize my travels, seems counterproductive to travel.

Planning is the enemy of a traveler, micro-managing ones life is silly. There are times when a free flow of fun is achieved, when there is no introspection. When we stop asking why we are doing something, we are positive we like it.

If you can look around inside your life, spot the the activities you just do not judge after the fact, you know you enjoy, normally you can make this your life. There are on the other hand hedonistic people who spend all their time on the end of the bar trying to get laid, this is not what I mean. This is just children who have no introspection and are the rabble, they only need money as easy as possible so they can be hedonistic.

When are doing something you know you respect in yourself, when you are doing something that allows you to stop thinking or introspection, this is your life.

I bargained with Life for a Penny, and Life would pay no more,
However, I begged at evening, when I counted my scanty store.

For Life is a just employer, He will give you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages, why, you must bear the task.

I worked for a menial’s hire, only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of Life, Life would have willingly paid.
(Jesse Rittenhouse, as ed in Napoleon Hill, Think and Grow Rich, 1960, p. 40)


People overvalue time, they say they are busy, I truly enjoyed writing this reply to a comment, it will not make money, it was in the moment fun, not for you, but for me to be me, to think...

Fantastic Post Andy! Its inspirational that you still appreciate and enjoy your lifestyle after all of these years... Some of us, such as myself, might be cautious that the shine would dull after a while...as it does with most things idealized.

Re Create, at the end of 7 days, God rested, he re-created, or had some recreation. I keep in my mind a need to re-create my energy. I know I can burn out, I need to open my eyes again daily.

Be like a small child, I try to not be adult.

I was driving across western Pennsylvania in 2002 listening to a classic rock radio station when a rush of nostalgia came flowing through my memories of past lives. I came up with 10 lives I'd already lived each "life" with its own geographic location, friendship social network, means of making a living and time span. I was "high" on life and knew so much living was ahead of me. Now, seven years later after moving back to the Philippines I'm still doing "my thing" waking up each morning to invent my day. Living life spontaneously is an incredible adventure what a long strange trip it's been!

I am so impressed with your insight. You are truly inspirational and I enjoy reading your posts everyday. Keep it up Andy - you are one of a kind person doing exactly what you want to do whenever you want to do it.

Very inspirational - Keep going Andy!
