There was no riverbank and it was not a warm summer day. Nonetheless, I was bored and this stable world annoyed me. I’ve always been told that I should find a good job after college and make a career out of it. Back in time, I never challenged this idea and it sounded to be a pretty decent path of adulthood.
Right after graduation, I started an internship in an international organization and got hired afterward. It was really what I had always wanted. I lived in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Eventually I was not enjoying my life. Somehow I got bored after a couple of months and I started to listen to the whispers that were pushing me in another direction. Those that were telling me there was much more to live and that a more exciting path was waiting for me. In May 2016, I decided to go back to Wonderland. At the time, it was scary to leave everything behind for the world but I would to do it all over again. It has been an exciting adventure and when you are in your twenties, there are way more things to do to entertain yourself than being sit at a desk.
This is not a story about traveling or randomly quitting your job. This is about listening to yourself and realise at which step of your life you are, not matter what are the expectations surrounding you.
Have I gone mad someone asked? Well, I’m afraid so. You’re entirely bonkers replied someone else. But I’ll tell you a secret. All the best people are.
