My oh my, it’s been almost 2 years since I’ve written on this blog.
The crazy thing is. Since I stopped writing, I’ve been on more adventures than I could’ve possibly hoped for.
I road tripped the United States and camped in many of the national parks along the west coast, I lived in Bali for a few months, attended numerous business events, and went on many Aussie road trips.
I climbed mountains, hiked to the top of volcanoes, snorkelled, jumped off cliffs, and many more grand adventures.
Yet, I didn’t write about one of these amazing experiences.
Some could say I was too busy enjoying this grand adventure called life. But deep down I know the real reason. Sadly, I allowed myself to get so caught up in something else.
You may recall my last post announced I was quitting my job. Well the reason I was able to quit my job was due to an affiliate marketing business I started promoting. And whilst this business completely changed my life, in hindsight I can see it also completely took over my life.
I was so excited to quit my job, embark on my travels, and share my grand adventure.
Instead I got so caught up in the day to day running of my business, that I never allowed myself a spare moment to write about my experiences.
The other thing that stopped me from writing, was my fixation on what I classed as adventure.
You see, I only wanted to write about these big, exciting, travel moments. After all, that was why I had quit my job. But my life and priorities changed. I fell in love, and my boyfriend is in the process of getting an Australian visa so he can’t really travel.
And that left me feeling stuck. I’d branded myself as a travel blogger, but I wasn’t always travelling. How could I continue to share content on my blog?
For so long, I found my day to day life in Australia wasn’t exciting enough to write about. Even though I was going on incredible day trips, loads of road trips, and not having to report to a boss, something inside me was blocked.
But now, I’ve finally come to realise, every single moment contributes to the grand adventure of life.
And this is why I’ve decided to start writing again.
That, and the fact that my booming business unexpectedly ended last month. I was finally starting to get everything I want. Then in the blink of an eye, it all came crashing down. And that’s the moment I realised, putting all your eggs in one basket is the worst thing you could possibly do.
The last month has been a rollercoaster of emotions. A lot of us lost our income overnight. Faced with the very possible reality that we might need to get jobs again, we realised this was our chance to really prove ourselves as entrepreneurs.
So we did what any crazy people would do. We decided to dust ourselves off and start from scratch.
And let me tell you, this has probably been one of the most exciting adventures I’ve been on so far.
It’s not the typical adventure I set out to write about when I started this blog. But life is full of curve balls, and that’s all part of what makes it such a grand adventure. And I’m so excited to share every moment of it with you. Big or small, it’s time to write about this grand adventure called my life.
