Imagine you had a life you don’t need a vacation from…
What would that look like?
Where would you live?
What would you do for work?
What people would you be surrounded by?
What would your daily routine look like?
What would you do for fun?
How would you feel?
There are so many questions we should ask ourselves every now and then and check if we’re truly living the way we’d like to live but often we rarely do it. Why? Maybe because we could find out we’re actually not happy with our job or our relationship? Or because we fear change? Or maybe because we feel we don’t even have a choice anyway and can’t change our life for the better?
I feel a lot of people often just live day by day by day without truly being happy and content with their situation and without even realizing that maybe the reason they’re not feeling happy and fulfilled simply is that the life they’re living looks so different from the life they actually want to live.
From experience I can say that happiness truly does come from inside and you can find it in any situation (meditation and being more present helps – a lot!). However, your the circumstances – the place where you live, your job, the people in your life – can make it a lot easier or harder to find happiness.
I’m not perfect with this either. I don’t have it all figured out. Often I feel I have nothing figured out to be honest. However, in the past I already made some big changes in my life whenever I felt I can’t go on like this. Examples?
After finishing my apprenticeship and working for one more year at the same company I felt I need a new challenge and decided to go studying because that’s what I always felt called to do and because I was actually interested in my field of study.
During that time I decided to study a semester abroad even though it made things more complicated. I felt that I just needed a change and needed to leave Germany for a while so that’s what I did.
After studying and back in an office job I knew this isn’t for me and that I can’t go on like this. So I saved up money, gave up my room in a shared house, left Germany and decided to travel for at least 1-2 years.
Just recently I made another big decision in my life: I decided to invest into an online business that I know will help me create a life I love as going back to where I was, back to a 9-5 office job, is just not an option for me. I just need more time, freedom and independence.
For me work is one of the biggest parts of a happy life as it’s something we can’t get around, in the end we all need money. So why not have a job you love?
