About 7 years ago I left my office 9-5 job, my annual salary and 4 weeks holiday to become a freelance creative and digital nomad. I swapped my high heels and stockings for flip flops and bathing suits. And I’m pretty happy with that life choice! BUT you know, let’s get real for a minute - this life aint for everybody! All this adventure keeps the cortisol levels sky-high. Frequent international travel, not really knowing when your next pay check is coming, always in work mode with no weekends, having to be creative in all sorts of random setups, and living out of a suitcase... can be physically, mentally and emotionally draining. I LOVE my life - I promise I’m not complaining I just want to be honest and real. Sometimes my brain and my body are like, “woman, will you just stop ?!”. I definitely never check myself before I wreck myself! Lol - long post, but I spotted 3 grey hairs in this pic and was like: ! Anyone else relate?
