Sometimes, the best place to be, is the worst

When you're down, you can't see the beauty that's all around you.

But, if you feel like you're at rock bottom and have nothing to lose, there's actually a bonus - there's nothing to fear any more. I've never understood why people take their lives, because being that down is a prime opportunity to go out and do what you've always wanted to do.

Ever wanted to sell everything and get a 4x4, head up Africa and camp in the bush but been too afraid - of being murdered, or eaten by a wild animal, or breaking a leg in the middle of nowhere with no help in sight? Who cares! You wanted to die anyway, at least you did it doing something epic - following your path.

Maybe the above example doesn't gel for you, everyone has their own crazy dreams and desires - what's yours? And what holds you back? Maybe when you're that low, that down and out, following a path - doing something you were once afraid of - might lead you to a long and fulfilling life.

You won't know - until you pick yourself up and just go for it.
