Choosing BOTH Sides

Here’s the thing- living this lifestyle is epic and it’s also challenging AF

I wrote this yesterday lying in the bath with the worst migraine I’d had in years. The day before I spent 8+ hours with my soul sister jamming on work creation which quickly became hours of deep conversation & shifting lifetimes.

What then followed was whole body exhaustion, waves of deep emotion & migraines.

On top of that I am looking at my car being bought which means I officially have nothing tangible to ‘keep me here’ and Bali moving is well and truly happening.

And while people are having conversations of weeks off and going on holidays I’m navigating my first end of year being fully self employed and how that looks.

I’m growing rapidly and to be real? My body is trying to keep up.

Now I love it. Don’t get me wrong
And it’s equally challenging AF at times

There’s no sick days off
No paid holidays 
No ‘leaving work at the office’

And to be fair it’s so easy to be constantly thinking about the next thing

AND I’d never live another way - truly

But just know, that it’s still challenging AF and days like yesterday I’d love a ‘sickie’ and to leave work to someone else.

My intention here is to remind you to choose your choosing and choose BOTH sides, because expecting one without the other is a sure fire way to misery.

And if you decide that living this life is a choice you wanna make them choose it

But choose the challenges with it

Because they’re just as real as the utter joy
