Five years ago I started a blog hoping I could forge a lifestyle of not just work life balance, but one where I was in control and following my passions.
I'll be honest, almost no one read my blog for the first two years and I wondered if I should even bother writing it.
Three + years ago I was still working a day job, hating it, and dreaming of that lifestyle I wanted so bad. Every penny, every weekend, every sick day was spent on exploring somewhere new.
I didn't fit that 9 to 5 mold and knew I needed to take a drastic action.
When I quit three years I didn't know what was in store for me. I had no job lined up, no real plan to fall back on. All I knew was that I was meant for something other than the mundane.
I didn't know then that my blog would actually gain traction, that I'd end up leading tours internationally for @adventuresabroadtravel
, that I'd have more than enough time to figure out what sounds fun and be actually able to do it.
If you're in a 9 to 5 and hate it, save up, dream big and just go for what makes you happy.
Not to sound cliche, but you only have one life - so make it a good one.
