Do you know what it feels like to live on the edge? Do you feel daring enough?
Something I have had figured out lately is that life is full of challenges, and every day we are faced with either a routine or spontaneity. I heard someone say to me today how they volunteered to work for a radio company for 2 years of their life, without getting paid during both of those years, just for the passion for that particular industry; and that only.
I would much rather do something I love and not get paid for it than go to work every day dreading what I do; it would make me so miserable
An amazing outlook, I thought. It’s fascinating nowadays how many people you speak to that say that they are chasing this big dream job just for the money. When you dissect the core interest in the profession, it is usually very minimal.
“Money makes the world go round.” – You must all of heard that one before. It sure does, but I would rather make money for a difference than let it make me different. With lots of money, usually comes more responsibility. Life is all about balance, acting on impulse and doing what you love best.
So this is where I correlate back to ‘living on the edge’, and exploring your “adventurous” side. Before I went travelling back in 2012, I was the most shy girl in my class. I would never had said boo to a goose, and my parents were so shocked that I decided to take the leap of faith and explore the world: on my own. I done it though, and it was the best thing I ever did up to this point in my life. It grew me as a person, it helped me learn things about myself I never previously knew and I had the opportunity to make friends all over the planet.
Life is one big adventure, so why not live your dreams and don’t hold yourself back from what it is you really want to do? Don’t let an external factor of way, a way of living or another person dictate – only you know what it is that makes you truly happy!
