Being unreasonable is flying around the world to India to get laser eye surgery. It is stopping the pursuit of my career in the oil fields to create a wedding cinema company. It is quitting that same job to sell textbooks for a living, so that I can pay off debts and travel the world.
What does being unreasonable to me mean, and why do I relate myself to this word? Being unreasonable is what gets me going. Its who I am at my deepest. Sure, it can mean that I am stubborn as hell sometimes, but its what has made me who I am and who I want to be. Over the years, I have realized that I do not want to be the stereotypical person with the “American dream.” I dont mind working, so its not that. There is a curiosity inside me. One to rebel. one to move, taste, see and feel. Change the status quo and become happy. When I am unreasonable, I am happy. I am doing things that others believe are crazy and stupid, and make no sense for my future. Its not that I do not care about my future though, i do, but I care about investing in my life now. Only now can I do things so different, that hopefully it will inspire others to do the same. In the end, if I can be unreasonable enough to create some kind of change, then I believe that I have done a job well done.
