Hey there! Glad you found this site.
I’ve quit my day job to make traveling a full time job. Why did I do it? Because I felt like my corporate job wasn’t fullfilling my needs anymore.
I always felt like there was something missing in my life and it was like working was something I just needed to do in order to survive life. During my office days, everything felt the same. I had to wake up early, go to the office, come home late, sleep, then do it all over again. It was monotonous. I needed a change.
That’s when I decided to travel. I took time off from work to travel alone to Asia. My first travel was an amazing experience. I really immersed with the locals. It immediately knew that this was the missing part of my life. I always thought I was a shy person, but when I got to do what I love doing, I realized that I have lots of things to say. I became eager to meet new people to share my experience with. On my part, I was able to learn a lot from the people and friends i’ve met along the way.
A few weeks after getting back from that travel, I started saving up. It won’t be easy just living off traveling without any savings. So I made sure that I saved enough money so I can have a fallback, just in case traveling didn’t work out for me and I didn’t have anything to finance myself with.
Everything worked great. I travel, I write for online companies during my free time (and i’m able to choose the clients I want and the topics i’d want to write about). I’ve also worked with a few tourist organization to share my thoughts and reviews.
Financially, i’m not earning as much as I did back when I was doing my corporate work, but i’ve never felt this alive. I feel like life is now 1000% better. I’m always excited to wake up in the morning to see what’s ahead.
I’m thankful for my decision. It took a lot of courage and guts, but it all paid off.
Will I go back to the corporate world someday? Who knows… Maybe I will once i’ve seen everything the world has to offer, but I don’t think that’s possible within one lifetime. There’s just so much to see out there and so much to do and so many people to meet.
I’ll take it one step at a time. Carpe diem-ing everything for now.
