The magic of remote work
It was a long time coming to me, years before only a glimpse of dreamy thinking. Piece by piece, it was coming as one puzzle. My travels brought it together. When I left the first time to Thailand in 2014, I have met people that were training or living their lives while doing some work online like web development, graphic design, or photography 2 or 3 times per week for Europe. The rest of their time, they could spend enjoying life and their passions. That was the moment that the seed was planted in me to find my way of life. I also wanted to live my life freer and to my potential of who I am.
Finding the path was really alongside development, learning professionally, and personally. It was gradually, step by step, bringing me closer to answering those questions.
How can I be in this world?
How could I work using my talents?
How could I progress towards what I want to do in life?
The Beauty of changing your work
The Beauty of changing your work towards what you’d love doing and being more remote is the absolute feeling of freedom, of space to exist according to what you want to do, where to, and when. It is aligning yourself with your rhythm, bringing the best of your abilities. Another aspect is your bigger space for growth and learning independence, using technology easily accessible anywhere. Changing mentality and focusing on gathering the knowledge that is crucial for your development and progression on the path.
The transition that is happening in the world connects to the technology growth and ongoing changes. People start to seek something more than running for the career rat race, spending most of their lives behind the desks, and collecting more and more burnouts. Many of us acknowledged that it isn’t working anymore, they are unhappy, they have so much more to give in this life and so much more to experience. It is beautiful to observe this nearly grand world movement on many levels. Some found themselves dropping so-called norms, and going to explore the world, connect with other professionals elsewhere than the office. It doesn’t matter what it is, freelancing for someone else, or just changing working hours, creating your own business, or living while traveling. What’s crucial is changing the norms that were for many years ruling this world. Those ways that society created and aren’t valid nor working anymore. It is the time for the transition to something much closer to who we are.
The fun of living differently
Space and time for your rhythm, being in places where you ultimately feel the best. You can take your breaks for swimming in the sea, bathing in the sun, or being active every day. I am sure you can picture yourself working from somewhere near the ocean, nature, being more outside. For me, that’s something that charges my batteries, that makes me feel alive, although everyone has different needs and preferences. Life becomes one flow that brings variety, stimulation, inspirations, and alignment with your needs. Freedom of choice, time for your loved ones, flexibility for you and your schedule, merged with passion and desired activities.
