“What? Are you sure? What will you do to survive?”
These are some of the questions I was asked a ton of times when I decided to quit my job to pursue my dream to travel and discover the world outside of my comfort zone.
I was never sure about quitting my job. It was a great one with a great company and most importantly, it paid the bills! Almost a month after I did, I am still not sure if it was the right move. I just did it. Do I miss it? I can’t believe I’d say, yes!
However, no matter how the great the job is, I am sure a lot of people can relate that in some ways, we feel that we are trapped in our own world, our own drama; that we need to do things to make us feel alive.
I know some have lost their passion over survival and are trying to figure out how to get it back. It may not be the same as your story. But, if you are like me, who needed a break to get the fire within burning again, by all means, take the break you need to focus anew and be the better version of yourself.
At 30, I am willing to try something new, fail, and start all over again. That is not something I am afraid of anymore.
And to answer the question as to how I will survive this? I still don’t know. All I am sure about is that it is high time I do this so my dreams would materialise. I decided that I will cross bridges one at a time. Who knows? I might find passion on the road, love even.
