Up in the Air

"... your relationships are the heaviest components in your life. Do you feel the straps cutting into your shoulders? All those negotiations and arguments, and secrets and compromises. You don't need to carry all that weight. Why don't you set that bag down? Some animals were meant to carry each other, to live symbiotically for a lifetime - star crossed lovers, monogamous swans. We are not those animals. The slower we move, the faster we die. We are not swans. We're sharks." (Up in the Air)

In a way, I find some resemblances with the life of Ryan Bingham, the one who presented the words above in a seminar. I've been moving a lot in the last coupes of year and despite the experience, sometimes, I feel like I am loosing a home. I lost one when my grandma past away and since then nowhere seems to be right. I am still experimenting with the type job I want and I want to get married but question about how to settle a permanent job or who to marry is still a big question.

While for some people letting a bag is hard, having a bag for me is a bit scary. Maybe I am going to break if I start to carry one and is being disappointed with the one I carry. But I guess that is life right? You only live once and it means you have to risk it all to be fully alive.
