Nature vs “Civilization”, do we have to choose?

Nature versus culture or “civilization” could be a philosophical topic for many philosophy students. For me it is a question that sits at the core of my life decisions, choices and directions. Some people may call this dichotomy or life dilemma. I call it simply having options.

When I made some 360 degrees life and career changes going from capital city life to natural heavens the people closest to me at the time thought I was mad because this implied major salary cuts. It so happened that a few years later I happened to have tripled the salary I had prior to change, so somehow something about the “crazy” life and career changes I had done was right.

We all have the choice to live different lives and in different countries but many people are scared of the unknown and because of this they keep living a life that doesn’t necessarily fulfill their needs. They keep living it for the sake of what I would call “fitting expectations” may these expectations be family, economically or socially based. From what I have seen, generally people who do that end up banging their heads against the walls sooner or later.

I truly believe that change can make us better and more adaptable so people shouldn’t be scared by complete changeovers. The important is to believe in yourself, do what is most important for you and think outside the “mainstream box” that society tries to mold us into.

Some people are lucky enough to know what they want to do from a young age but for all the others I would say that if you are lucky enough to be “gifted” for several things, then go ahead and try them all out and eventually you will find what you are really made for. It is never too late to give a chance to a passion. This may require drastic changes from city life to nature life and a few “adjustments” but I believe this transition is achievable by most of us. The important is finding a healthy life balance and being in phase with what we like to do or what we are passionate about. Follow your dreams! If you slightly went “off-pist” doing so, well I am sure you would have learned some very good life lessons in the process. Don’t be afraid of getting lost, as you may well find that it is by getting lost that you find your way.

Welcome to Life of the Worlds

First of all I would like to welcome you all to Life of the Worlds and thank you for your visit and your contribution.

As some of you know may know I am very passionate about Nature and its defense, photography but also about travelling, adventure to name but a few and this is one of the primary reasons that lead me to create this web space.

The idea is to share information and open discussions about a broad variety of topics ranging from life, society matters, photography, travel, animal rights to environment issues and nature conservation. The bottom line is to share life experiences and make people react and think about today’s society. The ultimate aim is to raise awareness on today society issues and create a frame of reflection which will hopefully have a positive impact on life.

I would like to say special thanks to Martin for all his help and support with this blog and for making this space possible.

I hope to see you all be part of the discussions!

Many thanks.

Angelina.
