I think it’s really all about figuring out what’s important to us and then working on figuring out how we can do more of that and less of everything else, or how we can find a comfortable balance between the two.
For example, I’m committed to never tying myself down to one location ever again. That means if I ever take on a job that will stretch more than a few weeks, it needs to allow me to work remotely. If I can’t find something like that, then I’ll only accept part-time work and short-term contract jobs. I’ve decided the freedom of location independence is of utmost importance to my peace of mind (even if I’m not traveling, it’s the freedom to travel that is important to me).
Now my challenge is figuring out how I can spend more time outside while simultaneously earning enough money and doing something that contributes to the betterment of humanity. I know it’s going to be a process that will take me some time, probably another year, but I know down to the core of my being that if I don’t work towards that, all I will be doing is spending time dreaming about it. And why live life dreaming? I’d rather live life living! 🙂
Thank you for the comment and I’d love to hear what you do to work towards changing your own lifestyle!
