Your life isn’t a trial run: Quit your job, travel the world & live your dreams!

You know what! We have had enough! Enough of being treated like slaves and giving up hours and days of our lives to go and do things we don’t want to do for people we don’t like. We are done with the”system” of normality and its oppressive nature. More and more people who I talk to as I get older bitch and moan about how much they hate their jobs and wish they could have another life. Newsflash! You can!

We are conditioned to believe in a system of 9-5 employment, it encourages us to settle, to spend money on unnecessary things to stave away the dissatisfaction of giving up 5 out of 7 days of our lives. No more! If you are unhappy, then you owe it to yourself to do something about it, no one is going to come and “rescue” you and make all your dreams come true, it takes guts and determination, it takes making a leap of faith and leaving that repressive safety net behind.

Your life is not a trial run, you get one chance to do all those things, see all those places and experience all those things you want, shuffling paper around a desk for 40+ hours a week to buy a bigger TV is not all that life has to offer. You won’t even need a TV when you are sky diving in New Zealand, climbing the empire state building in New York or exploring Machu Picchu in Peru! Life is your entertainment if you allow it!

Why wait to spend 40/50 years of your life for a retirement which may never come or which you are too frail to enjoy, why not get out there and create a life for yourself, the one you dream of but are constantly told is unattainable and told to snap out of it and concentrate on your career, or being an “adult”.

Now you might read that and think, yeah well, that’s all well and good for you or those other travellers out there but what about me, I can’t do it, I am too settled, too scared, have too much to loose! Bullshit! Firstly we have a mortgage, we have steady jobs, shorty has had his for 11 years, but in many ways those are the things that fuel us to want to change our lives.

We began to change from rebellious skater kids into a married couple with a house and long term boring as hell jobs, we looked at each other one day and thought, where did we go? What has this life that was planned out for us do to our personalities, our energy and passion? From that day we took action and over the last 2 years of my Masters degree we have been able to figure out a path, a plan and begin saving.

Sometimes I feel you have to see that to really appreciate the freedom you have lost, straight from my BA I had no idea about long term travel, I just wanted a job and some money because it was what I was supposed to do. The reality of waking up everyday to drag myself across town to do something I hated was the wake up call I needed.

In the past 2 years we have been on some incredible adventures and journeys, both home and abroad, we have seen what life is about and have realised that long term travel is the only way we will feel free and happy. We are in the process of renting the house out and moving back home for a year to save up.

Hell, I am not going to tell you we have all the answers or know where we will end up, or if we will be able to make money along the way, but you know what, am I scared… not really, I am bloody excited, because what scares me more is waking up in 40 years time and wondering where my life and dreams went. This is it, it’s our chance and we are making it ourselves!

We are going to make the most of our lives and live 100%, not just on evenings and weekends. There are 356 days of the year to be lived, loved and laughed. Life shouldn’t be a labour we have to endure, wishing our precious days away until retirement.

People may call us dreamers or unrealistic, but what the hell, what have you got if you don’t have your dreams. I say to those people they do not think broadly enough or see the bars of their prison, what they accept doesn’t need to be what we accept. I won’t beat around the bush, I want an extraordinary life and so do we all, after all, who wants to be boring!?

We are not rich, I have a crappy part time job on minimum wage and shorty has a full time job in which he doesn’t get the pay his time or effort deserves, my parents don’t fund my travel and although they are kind enough to let us come back home it won’t be for free and I certainly don’t have a trust fund for travelling. We have prioritised, made sacrifices to travel the amount we already have done and we will do it again for our long term travel goals.

We have no issue working, I have been grafting away on my course as well as creating this blog and a travel publication… but it’s what you work for. You should work for freedom not for slavery. When you work 9-5 for someone else you are effectively selling your time, selling sections of your life that you will never get back, and who puts a price on how much your life is worth? Don’t sell your youth away and then frantically attempt to buy it back once you retire, make use of it now!

Anyone can do it, realise we are in control of our own lives and dreams and we are the only people who can make them happen, jump out of the safety net, stop making excuses and create the life you always wanted!
