A Simple Life

I am 28 years old which means I am a millennial. I was a teenager right at the turn of technology (myspace launched when I was a freshman) so I completely understand the obsession with tech and social media. BUT* I also remember what life was like before. 
It was just easier to be a human.
Recently I’ve been thinking a lot about what I want my life and future to look like. What my goals are and ambitions and basic desires. One of my younger sisters is completely obsessed with becoming a Kylie Jenner type, you know, a brand and I think that is awesome and I can completely see the appeal of that kind of life but sometimes when I talk to her and others like her it seems that any career or lifestyle that isn’t focused on becoming famous is looked down upon. 
And tbh it’s annoying. 
When I think about the things I want out of life I want a nice home with a pool. I want a husband and a child or two. I want a job that I enjoy where I impact people and can be helpful and of service. I want to be surrounded by my family and friends and have holidays and parties full of laughter, food and memories that exist only in my mind. 
I don’t want to manufacture moments for an instagram photo. I don’t want to make every decision based off whether something will bring me a lot of likes or shares or RT’s. 
And don’t get me wrong I totally see the benefit of an influencers life with the traveling and the gifts and fans. And that would be awesome. I want to travel. I want to have new experiences and meet new people who look differently from me, live differently from me, speak differently, eat different foods, love differently. I want to build a community of likeminded people who want to share ideas and be kind to each other. 
I want to open my consciousness and be the most full person I can be. 
I just want to live.
Fully. Thoughtfully. Happily. 
(and not always on social media)
