So I came to Colombia thinking (and hoping) that maybe I’d come to my senses and figure out my perfect job and next steps moving forward. And while I can say I have most definitely NOT figured out my perfect career (is there actually such a thing as a perfect career anyway?) I have gotten much clarity on on my next steps moving forward: being HAPPY! So, yeah, maybe I won’t ever have a “perfect” career that pays a shit ton of money, at least in the traditional sense, and maybe I won’t ever climb the “ladder,” or have a set salary of $200K. But if I can continue to build a lifestyle that suits ME (whatever that may be) and give myself the freedom and flexibility to think about and do the things that I love, THEN I’ll be successful. Because if I can find a way to travel more than one week out of the year, meet cool people every day, NOT sit at a desk from 9-5 and actually look forward to waking up (even if it is just serving vegan crepes for now) then that is success to me.
