Going the ‘Wrong’ Way


“Many times the ‘wrong’ train took me to the right place”
— Paulo Coelho


From the age of seventeen until well into my thirties my life choices could easily be judged as off. I did everything from leaving high school and home for half a year and joining a religious cult to hitchhiking across country to coming out to exploring as many different head spaces and points of view as possible. Oh for most of it, I was employed gainfully tho even then they were either jobs that involved travelling from city to city or sales jobs that I was vastly unsuited for. I also had a few minimum wage jobs and a few stints where I read cards professionally. Those, my family would look somewhat askew at tho they dismissed it as me being a ‘free spirit’ (as opposed to one chained? I would often wonder.) Still all of this wandering and exploring has helped shape me in pretty great ways. I have had direct experiences of the universe. I have met fascinating people from all walks of life and am probably more accepting and less judging of the choices of others than most of the people I know. If not for all of the adventuring I never would have fallen in love, gotten married and been raising children. I would never have had the courage to create and sell art or the willingness to explore my life and my spirit in so many ways. I have been blessed by all of the wrong trains I have taken and would not have chosen any other way.
Blessings, G

  1. it was not the wrong way..it was the informal way..you let go of a formal system and did similar things without attachments. In this manner, you were on your own, at all instances. Universe part went over my head, I didn’t understand..how you met universe while wandering around..met your wife have children is the good part of your life 🙂

    1. Ah there comes points where for lack of a better term, I have felt the rightness of where I was with the universe and my place in it.
      Thanks for your comment

  2. I know exactly what you mean, I have lived my life in ways many people disprove of or disagree with, but I would not change anything. I’m happy with who I am and who I am is determined by what I’ve done to get here.
    No compromise, no sell-out.
