It's 10 years ago this week that I started this epic adventure that I still can't believe I completed. The effects continue to be profound and have given me a real insight into rites of passage and how important they are.
What can you do/are you about to do/have done that challenges everything you thought you knew about yourself?
I thought I was weak, cowardly and had no discipline. Turns out I was deluded.
I can feel a new adventure brewing and despite being so private and reclusive, I get a sense there will be lots of talking. But this time I'm excited to see what delusions I'll be forced to accept.
And here's the ace up my sleeve. When I packed for the 1,500km pilgrimage and the backpack brought me to my knees, I halved the weight by taking out all the expectations...
Pimp My Attitude
You need to know, right now, this is all about me. I'm not educated. I don't have any (non-driving related) qualifications therefore, I'm not about to tell you what you should do - I know my place.
And here you are.
At my place.
So - welcome.
If you're here for 10 seconds, I won't even know so I won't be offended that you left early.
If you're here for hours and keep coming back, I will consider you a friend because the only thing my diverse yet loyal friends have in common, and what I appreciate most about them, is that they just keep coming back..
