Planning Creates a Better Life than just Hoping it will all Work out

I was an individual making my own way in the big city but so was everyone else.

I grew up in a small town in a small country. I read a lot and was out in nature a lot. I didn’t even know what a career was until later in my so called professional life. I didn’t know I wanted to become a manager, or director, or managing director, or any other type of nonsense that exist in a corporate world. I was sold the idea of climbing the corporate ladder.

The big city gives you an illusion you’ve got it all sorted.

You’ve got some money in the bank account. You can go out to fancy restaurants and bars. You can go on holiday. And one thinks to themselves “I have a great life”.

I choose to LIVE not to exist.

I no longer have a feeling of ‘needing to feed my soul’… I have a husband who feeds my soul and we live in the place where your soul gets fed multiple times a day. I choose the sunshine, not working for the man and creating something better for tomorrow. We’ve got our plan and we are sticking to it. I hope you’ve got your plan.
