The Contemporary Lifestyle

Leave a Comment 72 views

I am a professional Graphic Designer, I decided in September 2017 to quit my full-time job. I was very overworked and could not bear the 9 to 5 anymore, and I was not fulfilled in my job role.

Deep down I always knew that I wanted to set up my own company. I did not want to be like my parents, always at work and not spending enough quality time with their children.

One day I will be the sort of person, Mum, and wife that could run a business working from home and have time for family. To me, It’s okay earning money but what you really do with money is the key. Health is the real wealth.

I’ve got a little part-time job at the Bakery which I completely love, I wake up at 5 am, meditate then embrace the day. So, in the afternoons and evenings I freelance for an old company, (would you believe they are now willing to pay me double than what I was earning in a month?) I also have a few clients that I really enjoy working with. It’s amazing that I get to live a contemporary lifestyle. 

I now have time to eat right and work on my fitness. It so nice to have time to think clearly, and then come home to work on my entrepreneurial dreams and ambitions.

I believe I had a calling

I sprained my back a few months ago and I had no choice but to slow down and take time to think about where I am going in my life. I had been unhappy with my job since January 2017. I was going around and around in circles doing the same thing and dealing with the same people, with the same nonsense.

I used to wake up feeling sick and tired. However much I tried to make a difference with the working environment, there was just too much darkness for me. I could just feel that my time there was coming to an end and a new chapter of my life was coming!

I felt that I could not progress and I was not learning anything new. I am a very hard worker. I have the capabilities to work from home and this is what I’m doing forever.

If you are a creative person, you need space, you need that freedom to design and create. And working from the comfort of your own home is the best place. I am surrounded by all my paintings and books and I am the most mentally strong person "yes means yes and no means no". I am my own boss! It’s amazing how much work can be done from home, I can do twice as much in an hour than working in an office.

I had learned a lot of techniques in industry, I mean, it’s important to sharpen your craft before setting up your own company and living "The contemporary lifestyle." Once you have mastered or figured out what you are good at, you just need to make it happen! And have a dedicated attitude which is naturally built in all of us!.

Anyways after all the deep meditation and chanting, no joke, it does work, I was ready to become a Digital Entrepreneur, and promote myself as a Graphic Designer! You are you’re own expert.

I had watched the 7-day series from a fantastic company called the SFM, and I am dedicated to it for life! I get to work and communicate with amazing people and be part of an uplifting community that really cares, I’ve taken on challenges after challenges and now I am setting my own YouTube channel! I want to teach other Designers what I am great at. 

I meet new people every week and make friends!

I also sleep like a baby! I can rest so peacefully and look forward to every day of my life! This is the best feeling and decision that I’ve made not just for my life but for family and friends and now I am so much closer to them.
