Another way to live your life?
I lived in Kent for most of my life up until 10 years when I decided to change my life, not because I was unhappy – far from it, I loved Kent and my friends – but I wanted to do as much as I could with my time whilst on this earth.
So, are you really happy with your life in Kent – or could you be doing more?
I now live abroad in Thailand and am Managing Director for a media group here. Everyday I wake up with a goal and excitement to get my day off to a flyer, and that could not be said for everyday when I lived in Kent. If truth be known, I was happy but I was not breaking new boundaries with my life – if was fun, but it was becoming predictable.
Now I get to travel every month, two days in Bangkok, then Pattaya then off to the seaside resort of Hua Hin, or variations similar to this – all in the name of work. I am always going away at weekends for short vacations – off to a nearby Island or a flight to another country. Life is bliss and its because I consciously made it that way.
Preparing a vlog like this walks a very close line between being considered somewhat condescending or being seen as a shot in the arm to others to help them do more with their life. Please take the later as my objective.
Challenge Everything – Live life on your terms
When I look at my kids in their eyes I want them to be free thinkers and challenge everything, just because something has always be done in a certain way don’t make it your own practice. When I read about the schools in the UK being able to fine parents for taking their kids out of school during term time it made my blood boil – whose kids are these societies or yours? We only live life as a long as we are not hurting everyone we should live life on our terms not societies or others.
What has happened to your life when you feel the need to post on a regional Facebook page about ‘neighbours dogs doing a poo on the kerb in front of your house’ or ‘little Johnny has been riding his motorbike through the village with no crash helmet’ – come on, get a grip and do things with your life that make you happy and are more stimulating?
My message is a plead to others to consider breaking free and doing the things you really always dreamed of before its too late. Death is certain and it should be enough of a motivation to make the most of everyday.
I loved living in Kent but I threw my life up in the air and it was the best thing I ever did. It empowered me and now I find it much easier to make big decisions that are in my interests.
Thanks to Inspire Kent for allowing me to have my 5-minute platform. Shoot me down if you wish, that seems to be how modern day social network trolling work, but I hope some of you can take some learning’s and life the life you are capable of and that make you more happy and content. Life has so much to offer if you go looking for it. Don’t and it will just pass you by, amen.
