This blog post is in response to Natalie’s 10 Day Freedom Plan Blog Challenge Day 9
The thing is I don't have to imagine that lifestyle, as I live it. In the past 5 years of International House and Pet Sitting I have traveled to 17 Countries on 5 Continents. House Sat 45 properties and looked after 150 pets. I have experienced beaches, bush, mountains, churches, temples, vibrant cities and rural communities. Visited major tourist attractions and been off the beaton track. Yes I live a location independent lifestyle and love it.
The interesting thing is I have no "One" way of balancing the adventure and work as it changes all the time when life presents different opportunities. You see while I am location independent and live a freedom lifestyle I don't have, yet, what I would call a freedom business. The balance comes from reducing living costs while still living in a style I enjoy, and by doing so, I have reduced my income requirements. For example two months motel relief management will pay for 9 months travel while house & pet sitting.
How do I balance this? Well in reality I don't, "Life" does. I just do my part by listening and taking action when obvious. I stay open to the opportunities offered and go where life guides me. My balance is Trust. Trust that life knows best and in my experience it does. I work when I feel to and travel and house-sit the rest. I say yes when I feel to and work out how to do it later if required. My balance is "Life" and my currency is Trust and Appreciation. The rest takes care of itself.
Of late I have felt to start some sort of ongoing freedom business and can now see why I was prompted to undertake this challenge. Through this journey I am starting to get an idea of how that business may look and am loving the insights that are coming into my awareness.
How I will balance this business and future adventures? Well the same way, leave it to life!
