Life has challenged me with numerous mountains to climb and conquer. For a long, long time I have been neglecting where my heart wanted to take me and my head just kept leading me into different directions. My 3rd visit to Bali though is where I realized, I needed to change it all around. My heart knew that there was no bright future ahead of me in the current life I was living and I really did not know where it would end up. Probably pretty damn miserable. My environment and their “opinion” played a huge part in why I had difficulty taking this huge dive into the deep. No one really knows it did, but it did. My career was going really well, the friends I surrounded myself with are the best, I have my own house 200 meter of the beach. “Why is this girl throwing all this good stuff away for the unknown?” is what I thought people might think.
This dive into the deep was just a necessary conclusion of a desire that could not be neglected anymore. My career did not actually matter (i was just earning money for someone else , my friends only want me to be happy, and my house is just a material object that cannot define my path in life. Living abroad with a warm ocean nearby, indulge in a new culture and be inspired by the people you meet on the way, that defines my happiness. And leaving this fear behind ny do ing into this unknown deep water has became one of my most important and heart-lead decisions. I am exactly where I want to be in life and am sure that more dives will follow soon.
