I can’t believe I finished my degree. The time went so fast and I don’t regret a second of it. Whilst I hated living in London for a year I don’t regret it even slightly because it’s what I wanted to do. If I never did all the things I did whilst being at Uni I think that now I would live in regret!
So now begins the next chapter of my life. Whilst most people plan for where they’re going to work, or begin to start saving for their mortgage, the only thing I think about is where I’m going to go next.
The most important thing that I get told (quite often I might add). Is:
You’ve gotta do it whilst you’re young. The most important thing you have is your health.
And the scary thing is, you never know when you might lose that. So why not do the things you love whilst you can?
Some may say its a negative way to live your life but for me it’s a drive. The way I look it as I have the rest of my life to work, have children, buy a house.. And simply do all the serious stuff. But only now do I have the freedom to go where I like and not look back. I don’t have to worry about missing work or leaving my kids behind… Because I don’t have those things in my life yet.
And don’t get me wrong, I am incredibly excited about buying my first home, getting married, starting a family and having a career. But don’t I have the rest of my life to do that?
Whilst I will continue to travel for many years to come, it is now where I’m exploring the world and making those unforgettable memories.
