I have long since stopped doing practically anything out of obligation. I am much happier now. Glory Glory Halle Berry!My wife used to admonish me for having no ambition or goals in life. I felt defending myself was in order. It's simply that my ambitions and goals are different than hers.My goal is to reach a point in life that I have no more responsibilities. I want to be able to just take a nap in a hammock whenever I want, on a whim. I want the ability to decide I'm going to Cozumel on a Tuesday morning and be there by lunch time. I want to hang out with whom I choose, when I choose, and where I choose, without having to worry about expectations, obligations, or other such pesky factors. That's my ambition. That's why I work so much now, and don't spend everything I make as soon as I make it. That's why I put effort into raising good kids. Every choice I make today is, at least in part, inspired by that end-game.Maybe I want to move to Thailand and become a tuktuk driver for a while. Or maybe I wanna run more barbed-wire fence and raise Llamas. Or maybe I wanna try both of those things, and hang out in smokey jazz bars at night too. I dunno. Who knows what my whims will be in the future? No matter what they are, I want the freedom to indulge them. I don't want to have to say, Oh I wish I could go do this-or-that but I've got work, or I've got some other reason I can't.xtn
