With the prospect of freedom from the 9-5 on the horizon, I am hopeful for the future and all of the new experiences that are sure to follow.
I am looking forward to waking up to beaming rays of sun on my face without the intrusive sound of mechanical buzzing from my alarm.
I shall drift to sleep in peace and arise just the same.
I will be free!
Free to daydream, free to explore, free to just be.
If not for long, for long enough.
For many, work is a necessary evil. It is not time spent doing something you enjoy, but rather time spent busying yourself with the nuances of modern society.
If you are lucky enough to have found a way to earn an income doing what you love, then you are one of the truly blessed. Be wise and never take this for granted.
For the rest of us, the work days can be long and grueling without the rewards of passion and self-reliance. We get through it by dangling the carrot of inspiration in front of our faces until we are exhausted by the prospect of freedom.
Disillusioned by the idea that this is what is expected of us and simply the way it has always been.
We create our own destiny. Each one of us is powerful in our own special way. We are not meant to be shoved in the corner of an office, pencil pushing all day just to pay the rent. There is so much more out there for us and within us, we just need to find a way to break free from the mundane life that has been put before us. A life declared as normal.
What is normal really? Doesn’t the definition vary according to who is defining it? Would you let someone else define who you are? Tell you who you are supposed to be, what you are supposed to do, who you are supposed to love?
I sure hope not!
These are questions you are meant to find the answers to yourself. It is okay to be unsure in the beginning.
Life is all about finding the answers.
Don’t be afraid to embrace your dreams, aspirations and you inner weird, it is what makes you, YOU!
