14 Mar Purpose
Hello all! I know I’ve been on a hiatus lately and I apologize for that. I’m not going to lie, I wasn’t just having a creative block. I’ve been feeling a wave of emotions and have been extremely unmotivated. For those of you who don’t know me, I quit my corporate job last year to sort of figure out what I want to do with my life (quarter life crisis much?).
The truth is, I wanted to start doing more of the things I love and figure out a way to make a living off that. I chose freedom over security.
Here’s the thing, no matter what you end up doing in life, whether you love it or not, there will be humps to get over. The universe will throw every obstacle your way to test your perseverance and you’re going to want to give up at times. You’ve got to understand that there is no such thing as the perfect job, there are downsides to everything. You’re going to have to prioritize and sacrifice certain things. It’s what you choose to fight for that’s going to differentiate your love from the rest of them.
The lifestyle I chose is not always smooth sailing. Yes I have a lot more freedom, I get to travel often, I make my own schedule, and get to work from anywhere in the world! But like I mentioned, everything comes with its downsides.
Here’s where I come in.
After analyzing what I’ve been doing this past year, I noticed I’ve gotten sidetracked. I started this blog because I wanted to inspire and relate to people. I wanted to show others what is out there, and encourage them to see for themselves. Most importantly, the very soul purpose of this blog is to share my story — the good, the bad, and even the ugly.
I realized I haven’t really done that.
From now on, I’m going to focus less on travel “tips and guides”. There are plenty of other travel blogs that will help you with that. This is a place for inspiration. A place for others to relate, connect, and feel a little less alone.
I will still blog about travel, but in a different way. I never wanted travel to seem like a luxury. I see it more as a personal journey.
Travel is not about the destination, but rather a journey into oneself.
I want to dig deeper and really get in touch with who I am. I want to share everything with you — how I’ve managed to do what I do, what travel has taught me, and just overall share the struggles of my journey as an aspiring entrepreneur.
So here’s to swallowing my pride and trying to be as transparent with you all as much as possible. If you want to join me on this journey, you are more than welcome to, but be prepared for one bumpy ride!
