Round and round and back again. It’s been a long time coming, but I finally feel that I’m in a place where I can choose work based on my interests rather than the income. I always dreamed of this place and thought it to be a distant fantasy rather than a reality for me.
Simplifying my life and finances has opened up the opportunity to do any kind of work I want. It’s been both liberating and overwhelming. Sometimes it’s easier to do something because you have to.
Having more options can be exhilarating. And terrifying.
When you’re forced to decide what your highest point of contribution is, work life becomes a bigger responsibility. Suddenly, your choices are not based solely on providing for yourself and your family. Now you’re free to decide what you love to do. And what you’re best at.
Freedom is a blessing and curse. But the positives outweigh the difficulties by a landslide.
