In times of stress, being busy, whatever you want to call it I feel like we tend to reach out and dream of another life.Â Â In reality it’s because we’re kind of scared of the present and the unpredictability of what might lie ahead in our own lives.Â So we tend to day dream.Â Â We think “if only I had this life everything would be fine.”
The reality is that life is hard no matter where you go and no matter who you are.Â Â However, it doesn’t mean we can’t still dream about a life we’ll never lead.Â Â It’s simply part of being human.
Speaking of which, here are four lifestyles I’d love to have the courage to lead…..
Living in a new place every single year
There are people out there that actually do this.Â Â Frankly I’m not sure for how long but how badass would it be to just pack up and go every year?Â You live in a new place, meet new people, experience new things.Â Â My only beef with the one year thing is that it takes a while to settle somewhere and a year really isn’t long enough.Â Not to mention it’ll be tough to have close ties to anyone for an extended period of time.Â Â Still though, the actual experience of moving from place to place on your own terms must be kind of cool.Â Â Â Â P.S. this probably only works if you are a telecommuter.Â Â Unless you want to have bum jobs everywhere.
The living on a beach for the rest of my life thing
I’ve written a whole article about this in the past.Â Â Given that I work online for a living this scenario isn’t out of the realm of possibilities.Â However, to raise a family and all that, it just wouldn’t be the same.Â I feel like a beach paradise would no longer be paradise and thus actually going through with this wouldn’t nearly be as cool as I thought.
Bachelor for life lifestyle
I only think this works if you’re a dude like Jack Nicholson.Â Unless you’re rich and powerful you’re gonna have it pretty bad after the age of 50 or so.Â Â Because all your chances of younger hot women are going to dwindle unless you have the cash.Â Still though, what married guy with kids doesn’t miss his single life?Â I haven’t met one yet.
I’m sure there are more lifestyles I could pursue but these three would be pretty fun.
