So I have reached month 18 and finally my luck has turned around a bit. I have started a new job that allows me to work remotely from literally anywhere I can get an internet connection.
I am so excited about this opportunity that I am going to share every single detail in the coming weeks. That being said I am finally back on track with my goals.
So first up this month my goal is to pretty much get caught up on some things. Fortunately I didn’t dip too much into savings because I have been very careful but I do want to start saving again.
Now that I have a job that I can literally work anywhere in the world I can technically pick up and leave at anytime, but as I have said in previous posts I have obligations that must be taken care of first. Once those are done I may move my leave day up a bit. For right now I am sticking with this. The good news is I don’t have to quit my job or worry about where my money is coming from when I get on the road. (I still want to save though 🙂 )
I realized this month that you can’t always seek forgiveness from people who you have hurt and while that is hard it is something you have to accept, if that person blames you for everything you have to let them. Cut all ties and move on, and try to learn from your experience.
I have also learned what true happiness feels like and I am so grateful for that. Sometimes you have to cut everything off in your life and start over to rebuild a better you. I am working on a better me, which is why I have pursued job options I knew would make me happy. One of my biggest regrets in my life is jumping into a claims job when I didn’t want to do that because I was told I wouldn’t be good at my chosen job. I should have taken time and pursued my passions. I also was told constantly I wouldn’t like traveling to certain places even though I knew in the deepest parts of my soul I would. I believed them. Ha! no wonder I was so unhappy, I betrayed myself. I was so unhappy, now I am not. It was a hard lesson to learn but I have learned it and I finally accepted I can’t change my past and my mistakes but I can move forward with a new fire and pursue my dreams. 🙂
So what is the point of saying all of this? Pursue your passion and stop listening to the negativity. I can’t tell you how many times I gave up on something because I was told by people “I loved” I would not be good at that, or I couldn’t do that, or I wouldn’t like that. It made me one vindictive bitch who was very negative in every aspect of her life. I hated her. I can’t change who I was but I know I can be the person I was before I let everything get in my way. It is the biggest breath of fresh air I have had in years.
SO let go of the negativity and be you. 🙂
So yeah end soap box.
This past month was pretty boring so I don’t have much to share but I am hoping NEXT month I can start my savings posts back up and get back on track.
