The Impulsive Urge

“Be vibrant and impulsive and don’t let your thoughts weigh you down.” – Marty Rubin

Have you ever gotten a random urge to just go somewhere?
At the moment it doesn’t matter where.
You just want to leave and find something new.
Yeah, that was me last night.

I put stickers on my suitcase from different places I’ve been to. Last night I got my suitcase out to add some that I have gotten recently. Just in the process of getting to my suitcase, I was thinking about packing my bag, driving to the airport, and just buying a random flight. Then after I talked myself out of it I started thinking about why it even appealed to me. Then I came to the conclusion.

Life is a scary thing.
It can be very predictable.
Until it isn’t.

I want to live my life to the fullest while I still can. There are two voices in my head fighting. One saying that I can go, I can do it, I need to go for it. This is the impulsive one. The other logical is telling me “Hey, you cannot do that. You don’t know what’s going to happen. You don’t have a plan.” If anyone knows me than they know that not having a plan is quite possibly one of the worst things that can happen to me.

Yet, no matter how present the logical side is it doesn’t stop the impulsive side from popping up still. I probably should listen to it some more. Go on an adventure sometime. We all should. Who doesn’t love an adventure?
