No Matter What…

This photo sums me up perfectly
This is what I received from the Universe today.

No matter where “there” is, Allie. No matter what you want. No matter what you need. No matter where you’ve been. No matter where you’re headed. No matter when you ask. No matter how you ask. No matter who’s there with you. No matter who else you’re thinking of. No matter what, no matter what, no matter what. 

Every single day the Universe sends me uplifting quotes that make me realize that what I dream of, no matter what, is important.  They remind to not let go of what you have always envisioned your life to be, no matter how big or small.  

“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams.  Live the life you have always imagined.”

“Live each moment completely and the future will take care of itself.  Fully enjoy the wonder and beauty of each moment.”

Another email I opened this morning from my International Living subscription said this:

“Being realistic is the most commonly traveled road to mediocrity.” ~Will Smith

I want to reach outside of the box of what everyone deems normal.  
I am not normal.
My dreams are not normal dreams.
Normal people do not understand.

“People will tell you it’s crazy.  Even people you are close to.  Especially people you’re close to.  The people least likely to support your dream are the people who love you the most.  They’ll tell you you’re being unrealistic….that you’re not being practical.  They want you to be safe.  And you’re shaking things up.” ~Valerie Young, International Living Magazine
But to me thats ok.
My thinking has always been quite different from the majority of the population.  What I think is crazy and asinine is to work your entire life through school, go into an exorbitant amount of debt to then go work for someone else who will determine your future.  You do not have control over how long you will keep your job, what you get paid, how many hours you have to work etc.  
What I think is crazy is that society has created a system in which everyone follows.  Live in the suburbs, sit in traffic half of your life to get to and from a job that you most likely hate all in order to pay for things that are of no quality and look just like what everyone has. 

That is what society has deemed “normal”.
People are so brainwashed that when someone they are close to tries to escape the “reality” the words crazy, insane and stupid flow like alcohol at a wedding.  

What is so wrong with wanting more out of life for less of a price?

Have I confused ya’ll yet?  
You may be wondering what in the heck I could want to do that people would bash so easily.

Live abroad. Thats it.  That is what I want to do.

And why not?  It has never been easier to make a living via the internet than today….heck I am doing it right now!

You could live in a tropical paradise for 2,000/month and live luxuriously too.  There are so many expat communities out there it is mind blowing.  With approximately 7.6 million Americans living overseas, the expat community would constitute the 13th largest U.S. state by population size – just behind Virginia.

But enough about me….

What is your deep down dream?
That burning desire that nags you at your work desk or rides with you in car when all the windows are down?

I want this to inspire you to work at your dream every single day no matter what.  

Traveling can be a part of your dream….it is half of mine.
Take advantage of every day you are alive and get out in the world instead of saying “maybe next time” or “I just can’t” because you can.  Make it work (all in reason of course).
I am not saying skip paying your mortgage or getting behind in bills but simplify your life.  

Get rid of all the extra baggage that weighs down most people and live lighter.
