In the last 6 months, I have gone from doormat girlfriend who barely left her 1920s end terrace, in the suburbs apart from to work in her capitalist whore job where sleepless nights worrying about her boss' bonus was the norm; to a 50% pay cut, living in a House with four mates (including a couple) and four cats (2 are mine!) in a beautiful city and trying to start my own business with the savings I was going to buy a house with.
Needless to say, the whole process has been exhausting and overwhelming- sometimes I do wonder if I've made the right choices. However, the freedom I've gained through the decisions I've made have been so empowering.
The ways of the modern Western world means that we are expected to perform as close to robots as possible. Modern society makes it difficult and sometimes impossible to live in the present, be creative, and spend time with those we actually care for.
Worst case: I end up homeless, with not a penny to my name and nothing to show for my efforts. However, I will be able to say I tried to live my life for me and my loved ones. I can say I tried to live my life creatively and in the present, with the people I care about and who care about me.
Even if everything is a failure, I can still say with a smile that I tried- No Regrets! 😊😊😊😊
Sharing any of your own personal experiences about risking it all in life is a must for this post!
