Thou shalt follow thy dreams. Our inability to feel truly satisfied is perhaps one of the greatest sins of our generation. Failing to follow one’s dreams could easily be considered a mortal sin, but what if the real sin is getting lost on the path of ambition? What if we’re obsessing over our accomplishments so much that we forget to have the real human connections that are the true gifts of out existence? While chasing better salaries, larger houses, and worthier spouses motivates us, it also prevents us from having the cathartic experience that drifters have, the experiences that turn wanderers into thinkers.
