copmlcitaed. RESET

Planning for and making way for an 8 month trans-continental trip exposes some things. These things are none other than complicated. Complex in their essence, complicated in their existence and complicating in their influence, some things we realise cannot come with us…


We realise our lives are complicated, very complicated. So, yes, we tick that box, realising that complexity is unnecessary and a burden. So, what are these complexities? It is simple: things we cannot take with us, things we cannot rely on and things we have to realise that we have to do without! You may think of materialistic things – yes you are right, but what about those plans, schemes and sureties that forever evade one’s mind, that keep one safe, secure and content? Do they really provide contentment? Well, that’s another story, because to come to that realisation is a journey within a journey (that post is busy writing itself).


What we realise through this is that we actually can survive without these burdens. We have to. So, what’s next? That’s where RESET comes in. It’s kind of what we do when we don’t get much benefit out of our health benefit schemes, when we have so many payments and creditors to owe, and when it’s a continuous rat race that…just doesn’t stop. What to do? Scrap it! Start over! Begin anew.

This trip is enabling us to realise that our life is complicated. This trip is enabling us to uncomplicate our lives. This trip, amongst other things, is about RESET.
