Every day people drag themselves out of bed, through their morning routines, and commute to their respective jobs. There they trudge through the grind of a 8 to 9 hour day, with only about 3 hours of actual productive time, before punching the time clock at 5 and heading home to prepare for the same routine again tomorrow.
Isn’t that the normal life, you say? Isn’t that what our parents and grandparents worked hard for all the years of their lives? To provide for their families and live for the weekends until eventual retirement? Back when the only way to work is to work long and hard so you could retire after 50 years of service; used up and tired.
The days of career jobs with security and pensions are a thing of the past. Why should we let the true golden years of life pass us by? We need to live NOW instead of ‘working for the weekend’. Why do we need to work at a ‘normal’ 50+ hour a week job for base pay? Why do we let out creativity and energy be stolen from us? For employer paid insurance? For 3 weeks of vacation? For paid sick leave and a steady paycheck each week?
Now is the time to change. Now is the time to gain your life back.
I am here to help with that. My goal is to help people to see that there is more to life then work, especially work that is not meaningful. We are here on Earth to enjoy life and to live it to the fullest; we were made to look forward to each day with excitement and possibility.
It is possible to enjoy life and to enjoy work. You just have to find something that you love to do and you will never work another day in your life.
Please join me on my journey to break out of the 9 – 5 doldrums and start living my life the way I want. This is an experiment that I am conducting in my life. I have started this blog to show people that there is fun and adventure everywhere and to always ask why. I want to help the average, everyday person to find the amazing, exciting, adventurous person inside them! Don’t worry, that person is not far from the surface. 🙂
I have started a journey with Natalie Sisson of The Suitcase Entrepreneur.
With this challenge I hope to flex my writing muscles and learn some tips on creating a working blog. I want to reach out and help people on a daily basis. I want to make a difference in the world on a daily basis. And, most importantly, I want to look forward to each day and the adventure that it will bring!
