Don't Date a Girl Who Wants to Change the World, Join Her

I recently came across an article titled "Don't Date a Girl Who Travels" about why it's a bad idea to date a girl who travels. It's gone viral and has been translated into six different languages. So here is my response to that piece, Don't Date a Girl Who Wants to Change the World... I urge you to join her.

Just like the girl who travels, she also has messy, unkempt hair but that's because she is striving more than ever to find herself -- her voice to change the world. She's connected to the world both realistically and naturally. When she's not doing yoga at 8 am every morning, she's frantically searching the bookstore for books that will fill her mind and heart with knowledge. When she's not doing that, she is jumping from forum to forum, writing essays, and expanding her mind in her online and real time courses. Her desire to learn and work hard in brainstorming ideas for her journey to change the world will literally amaze you. It might actually inspire you to join her.

Like everyone else, she has her flaws, but that doesn't matter because she defines her own definition of beauty -- you know, the real raw beauty that exists in all of us, that we sometimes often hide from others, in order to blend in with the norms... Yea right, she doesn't conform, she leads tiny revolutions wherever she goes.

Chances are she is in tune with her dreams, the kind of dreams that actually do scare you. She's also extremely passionate... Beware! Whatever it may be, she will never have enough passions in life.

She's a fighter for everything and anything she believes in. Her life is not structured like most people; she's led by some purpose, some vision, and some dream that has captivated her and swept her off her feet. She's channeled that purpose into a concrete set of goals that will someday surely change the world. She might have inspired a few people along the way, but that's OK because they're apart of her journey.

She's daring, even a little different. She creates her own vision of the world. She lets go of the filters in her life, and instead looks through a different window; one that is really whole. She transcends limitations, is highly in tune with her consciousness and her creative imagination. More importantly, she's alive. Everything about her is, her talents, passion, creativity, purpose, and beauty.

So, Don't Date a Girl Who Wants to Change the World, Join her because chances are she will, with or without you; years from now you you will have regretted not joining her. And if you unintentionally fall in love with her, that's OK, because who can't resist not falling in love with someone like that. Only to later realize that deep down you too want to change the world.
