I remember sitting at my office desk recently , looking wistfully out of the window at the sunshine. My mind was drifting to all the things I would do had I not been chained to that desk, so to speak. It dawned on me in that moment that I simply wasn’t happy in the corporate world anymore.
I allowed my imagination to jump ahead 5 years, and the thought of sitting at a similar desk with a similar view terrified me. That moment was a turning point in my life. There and then, I made my decision… I was getting outon a blind date with the world.
I Closed My eyes For 30 minutes and those 30 minutes Gave me The meaning of LIFE. How beautiful the world is, Each and every corner Makes us learn A new Thing and an enchanting experience. Every place tells a story that we can relate to. Each and every place has something to give us, A new friend, a new meaning, a new vision or a new beginning to overcome all your fears.
I may not have known how at that time, but I knew that the saying, “Where there’s a will, there’s a way” had to apply.
I remembered about the time when my friend mentioned about her solo trip to BALI which was also one of my bucketlist.
With very less time, And with all the exciting information that my friend gave me about BALI thrilled me, And Gave me A push to book my tickets With Some pair of clothes and Explore BALI With Lesser known facts and knowledge.
I wasn’t worried about Money, My looks and Time, All I had were dreams in my eyes to Date BALI and Collect memories for lifetime.
I Landed In An Entirely New World
I don’t think I was fully prepared for the impact that Bali would have on me. It blew my mind on many levels. I was in awe of experiencing first hand the surreal beauty in other parts of the world.
Bali Welcomed Me With Open Arms
I felt very welcome, what with the locals’ endless smiles, the fertile green rice paddies, the majestic, ornate architecture, the pretty surrounding villages and the thriving arts and alternative scenes. This is the place I took up yoga and healthy eating. I had honestly never felt more alive.
I met location independent people from all corners of the earth, all with a similar goal: to fully embrace the benefits of this flexible and easy lifestyle while earning enough to support it, and then some. These people were very inspiring, and fortunately, they were more than happy to pass on their wisdom. I learnt about the different Cultural habits, Different language, Different lifestyle and Different Ideologies.
And the biggest thing that my blind date could give me was the Best Co working space. I found out about some of the best co-working spaces and cafes in the area, all of which were geared up for remote workers. I found that there were various comfortable spots with great internet connections. I got my peace of my mind back which i was struggling with Since long.
Suddenly after 30 minutes My door knocked and My Office boy was Standing with an evening tea,
when I opened my eyes, I realised I was in a fictional world. But that fictional world and dreams Turned my real life Much better.
It happened more or less straight away, but in those 30 minutes and afterwards, I was feeling relaxed, comfortable and secure.
I can’t tell you how excited i was when I opened my eyes back, I Found Myself Within a dream, I found my reasons to work, I used my skills To find a better job opportunity, An opportunity that gives me freedom to explore the world as well. There were so many other opportunities to explore too, and I had plenty of time to do so.
A little break is always Needed in our life to break the barriers and find our soul. Travel has always been the best Source to Unwind yourself from all kind of stress and worries.
My little Imagination and Dream Of going on a Blind date with BALI gave me wings to choose the path which gives me happiness, I hope someday soon i fly to bali and turn my dream into reality.
