Peppa in Wonderland…
In my last post, I mentioned the financial struggles that
come with starting out in the world of freelance writers, and bloggers. Two months ago, I decided to quit my side job, to focus completely on my passion for writing, and photography.
Blogging combines these two things, and gives me such great satisfaction. The reason why I chose this life is because I wanted to work from anywhere. Four years ago, I came back from California in order to be with my loved ones.
I never regretted this decision. I really wasn’t happy without them. However, the last place I ever wanted to live was Germany. It was too cold, too calculated, too strict.
It also was never visually pleasing to me. It is weird, I should feel at home here, since I was raised here, but I don’t. The only place that feels familiar in this country, is the neighborhood I grew up in.
So this is why the idea of working from home was so important to me. Working from home means I can travel, and work from anywhere. Traveling seems like a great compromise between living in Germany, and deeply craving foreign scenery, architecture, and landscape.
But I haven’t reached my goal yet. I still need to earn decently to be able to afford the urge to travel. So this is what I am trying to achieve in the upcoming months. I know I can do it. But getting there is tough.
I need to find the key to a lot of closed doors. But I am a determined young lady, and I will annoy plenty of people if I have to:-) Apart from the money stuff, this being my own boss thing is great.
One of the fabulous aspects is that I get to make my own hours. So today I took full advantage of that, and went on a little stroll through Stuttgart’s Killesberg Park in the middle of this sunny, hot day.
I found a beautiful green path, that reminded me a lot of the enchanted garden from Alice in Wonderland. It felt wonderful being in the midst of all this lush, green nature.
I then returned to my cute, white, little desk, refreshed and ready to write away. Here’s to crazy, wonderful dreams. It’s good to have them, but it’s better to live them!
