This post comes from a very happy place in my soul right now. Today I’m going to talk about the importance of taking a break and recharging your soul.
From September to now (January), I’ve been jumping around from New Zealand to Australia, to Canada, to Mexico, where I should have gone to England, and had to suddenly find another plan. It’s been a very uncertain bunch of months and sometimes I thrive for that kind of lifestyle. But after traveling a lot the past 2 years, my soul just really needed to recharge. I fully realize that now because I am so calm and at ease in my new room in Canada.
I just wanted to chat a little bit about this, because I put a lot of pressure on myself when it comes to my age and Working Holiday Visas. My goal was to keep on jumping around until I was 35 and was forced to settle down. I’m 26 and I figured why not take full advantage of the opportunity to travel the world and work. But dang, my soul needs a break. I think the idea of having to re-set myself up in each city I go to is extremely overwhelming at this point. I’m sure many of you who haven’t even done one Working Holiday Visa can see where I’m coming from, as you guys probably don’t even know where to start. If you’re okay living out of a suitcase, well then you’re going to love it! But I like to have my space where I can work on my photography passion and chill out. It’s the best thing I did. I thought of recharging my soul in Canada.
Do what you feel is right, at that exact time.
Don’t think about the future and the fact that you only have 5 years to complete your Working Holiday Visas and you don’t want to miss out on the chance. If right now in your life is not exactly the best time to jet off somewhere, chill out until it is time to go. If you couldn’t tell, I’m giving you advice I need to give to myself. So hey, let’s just feel out the moment and just chill there.
