I am taking part in a 10 day blog challenge, and the assignment for today is to speak about the challenges I face in living the life that I want.
The ideal was to name two or three such challenges, but in reality, there really is only one.
In a word; me.
And it’s all down to the Law of Compensation.
I start to consider doing one thing, but the Law of Compensation means that that particular thing will rule out something else entirely. For example, if I travel continuously as a lifestyle then I will miss out on putting down roots, or getting involved in the local community. If I don’t live in the UK, I won’t get to be involved with extended family on a regular basis, and the kids will miss out on grandparents and cousins. If we do settle near family, then we will be in the UK forever, and that is not for us either.
So my only problem is that a person can’t have everything. I guess the closest to having everything is to travel and move around as we choose, but try to visit family often. And that could work. It would mean that we have to make enough money from our business to be able fly back fairly regularly, but we could make it work.
There is always a way around a problem; the only challenge is me, in the sense of being absolutely definite about what I want.
There is only one thing I know for sure, and that is that I want a life of freedom, and I’ll do whatever it takes to have that. No wavering, no shooting myself in the foot. no tying myself back down to a life of waking up in the same house every day for the next 20 years. Nope. I was born to be free, and for me freedom is never settling in one place. We’ll just have to make it work with seeing our families as much as we can. But no matter what, I just can’t see myself staying put in one place for a long period of time.
So, that’s my biggest challenge. Me. What’s yours?
