It’s been over a year since I sold of EVERY SINGLE little, minuscule and unimportant thing in my life. I had been plagued for years with the fears of wasting my precious time of my ONE AND ONLY life. I felt complacent in my work, and I felt thoroughly unhappy in my daily routines – I knew that I HAD to make a change NOW! So with a little research and planning, and luck, I gave myself one month to make the switch to living a new life abroad. I began selling all of my materialistic possessions and arranged to quit my job, to leave my apartment and to go – just go, far away from all I’ve ever known. I packed a bag with my clothes, toiletries and computer, and I packed up and sold off the life I knew and built.
I can say now that it was the best decision I’ve ever made in my life; however, this life is not for everyone. The constant changing, from place to place, never quite comfortable is not perfect for everyone. But for me, it’s just right – it makes me feel alive. Forcing myself out of my tiny, little, boxed-in comfort zone is the best thing I’ve done for myself. It’s easy to settle and accept a comfortable life – but one of the beauties of life is in the maturation of one’s growth through their personal journey.
As a closing thought... If you can relate, and recognize that pained feeling that you have as fear (the feeling that’s keeping you from living YOUR life as YOU please), then I hope I’ve inspired and awoken you from a mundane and mind-numbing existence.
