I couldn’t wait for my next fix’…. After I came home from my first working adventure I realised that NOTHING at home had changed in everyday life, everything was exactly the same! Although when I was away, I couldn’t help thinking I was missing out on a lot of things, when in-fact the only thing I missed out was quality time with my friends & family.
I had a lot of free time on my two month vacation so when I was out and about more frequently in my local village, I started to visit the same places often and I’d find myself people watching, I started to observe peoples habits and notice their daily routines and I thought to myself they are so happy doing their “daily” routine that they have been doing for years and I just kept thinking there’s much there’s so much more to life and I’ve had a taste of it.
Spending time with my loved ones felt more special to me, I felt like I took in and appreciated every little conversation and the little things about them that I missed made me feel right at home again. My friends & family were so drawn in and interested about my life and stories that I had to tell and for the first time in my life I enjoyed feeling different and felt passionate about my lifestyle and how my life differed from the norm 9-5, Monday to Friday.
After a few weeks doing all the things I thought I missed and took for granted, I felt like I had crossed everything off mt list of things to do at home and I had a weird feeling that I’ve never experienced before.. I was ready to go again and explore some more parts of the world and make more lifelong friends. Work no longer seemed like work, it just seemed part of my life adventure!
I knew I was ready for my next fix….
