Lesson 1: Letting Go

Today was our last day at work. This is where our journey with the Corporate ends to pave way for a new journey to begin.

It took courage to chase our dream of wandering the world. It took courage to leave our careers behind. But I’ve learnt today, it took even more to finally let go of all that has become familiar. The wheels are set in motion now and we begin our fall into the black hole of unknowns. We welcome our newfound freedom not with open arms but heavy hearts; leaving a job behind is easy, saying goodbye to friends is not.

There was the strangest feeling as I switched off my workstation. Symbolically, I was shutting down my last 6.5 years, wiping out a past life and starting all over again. Scary, but liberating!

This journey we are about to embark on, we knew, would be an incredible learning experience. Today, we had our first lesson in letting go…

    It takes a tremendous amount of courage to turn yourself into unknown again, as you can tell by people showing immense jealousy yet refusing to follow suit. Keep going!
