  • | Safety and comfort are not always synonymous with happiness and fulfillment: 
______

If you're lucky, sometimes they are. But the habits, beliefs, people, and places that you're so used to and comfortable with  will sometimes provide you with the illusion that you are happy and fulfilled, yet it's easy to tell that they are truly vices of safety and comfort when you step away from them and you're undeniably anything but happy or fulfilled.
______

It is so easy to stay comfortable, to stay in the same safe environments, beliefs, mindsets, and routines you've been told are the norm, that you've been told are the safest route, that you've been told there's no point changing because it's only a few rough times in a sea of mediocre outcomes. 
______

It is so much easier to settle into that safety and comfort than step out into environments that are wildly unfamiliar, or adopt mindsets that challenge every pre-existing belief your parents and society reared you with, or leave a place or person you've made a home out of, one where comfort has allowed for complacency which you'll voluntarily ignore until life shakes you up so violently you're forced to take a step back and question the core intentions underlying every one of your choices from then til now. 
_____

You can choose safety and comfort in your choices, actions, and habits. You can put these guys on a pedestal, even when you know they will thwart your core desires for happiness and fulfillment. 
Or you can choose happiness and fulfillment, as difficult as it may be, as unfamiliar, abnormal, and unintuitive as it may feel. You can choose these two until they line up with your idea of safety and comfort, and until safety and comfort line up with your idea of happiness and fulfilment.

I find this is relevant to most pillars in life 🔑

💻 People beavering away everywhere – from their couches to coffee shops.

You’ve heard of ‘Digital Nomads’ – all those ‘lucky’ folks travelling the world with devices costing more than their plane tickets! ✈️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Whether it’s working from home that appeals to you, or seeing more of the world without having to strategically plan your paid leave allowance months in advance, it’s ALL possible IF you know where to start.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For me, it started with access to relevant SKILLS and a SIMPLE business model 👌🏼

An intro to these skills are sat in my bio 👉🏼 @amytaylorsays

  • (2/3) Meet flexlifer @atravellingdesigner, a Scottish graphic designer/illustrator and digital nomad⠀
📸⬆️ Kay working as she nomads ⠀
4️⃣/5️⃣ committed to her flexlife ⠀
8️⃣/🔟 feels confident she’s living the lifestyle she wants everyday ⠀
3️⃣ years and running⠀
💰⏰ Main interests 100% pay the bills ⠀
➡️www.atravellingdesigner.com⠀
⠀
•••⠀
Kay is a pro at prioritising her time and she likes to keep her day varied. She makes time to read, listen to podcasts, meditate, do yoga, draw, socialise, eat and work. She says “today was a full drawing day but I've cleared my work load. Last week I was with friends and we did some sightseeing then I worked in the evening on my new website.” She has plenty of time for passion projects - she works as an illustrator, does work for charities, makes things, like crochet at the moment and she’s been doing murals too. Plus she’s able to travel, see new places, experience new things and meet a hell of a load of people from everywhere!⠀
⠀
•••⠀
At this point, Kay is back in Scotland spending some quality time with family. She was dreaming about her mum’s cooking as she approached her trip back home and she is working on setting up a product line of her illustrations and creating a new app. She’s not worried about getting stuck back home or out traveling since she knows nothing has to be forever!⠀

  • 10 years old. That’s how old I was the first time I said I wanted to live in New York. 15 years old. That’s the first time I ever stepped foot in New York. I try a lot of things, entertain a lot of ideas, almost to the point of exhaustion, and this results in me feeling like I’ll never get to where I want to go. I act on emotion 99% of the time but that emotion comes from a deep desire to experience EVERYTHING that life has to offer, to be able to say I conquered the uncertainty of every situation I willing put myself in knowing how much it was going to hurt. My decision to move to New York is absolutely no different. Still waiting on my internal transfer acceptance. Still stressing about all the details and wishing I was better prepared. And every day I question myself, “am I making the right decision?”. But I’m a dreamer and a believer that everything good in life happens outside of our comfort zones. In the book I am currently reading I found a little peace of mind to get me through the day and I hope it does the same for you: “One of the pillars of philosophy is the examination of how we know what we know. How can we prove that what we believe is true? In most cases, we can’t.”

  • Good bye, Burns Lake! We love your trails and your people, but we are starting to associate you with bad luck... A broken arm, a broken coolant hose on the bus, a hole in the coolant expansion tank on the Westy... And this time, a broken bearing on the Westy... Unfortunately, there are no bearings to be found here and we need to be in Whistler for this weekend's Canada Cup, so we'll be putting the Westy on a platform and zoom down to Kamloops with our fingers crossed.

  • Here we are in Romania for three days. The first two nights we ate traditionally with cabbage rolls and a kind of goulash. Tonight, our last night, we found a Mexican restaurant and it was muy bueno! VIVA Mexico! If you’d like to join me for a week of painting and cultural exploration in Oaxaca Mexico April 2020 I have just a few spots left! DM me for details 🌈🌵❤️🎨

  • The best 2 Years of my life. 🚀
Before 2 years I didn’t know what : Shopify or Dropshipping or online business is at all. 
I Started doing research and slowly understanding and putting everything in work. Look at me now. 2 Years later i’m able to make more than 700k in revenue. And that’s all in only 1month and in only 1 store. So the message of this post is: You only need to work hard and always dream big, you will achieve every goal that you have in your life. 😴🚀
