It’s officially my first Monday in the unemployed club and the single biggest impact so far has to be how completely stress free yesterday was. I mean, every Sunday for as long as I could remember was spent with that feeling of doom: Monday is coming! The stress and utter ill feeling really sucked but I got used to it as just a part of life.
I slept like a rock last night and when I woke up, the usually rush of go go go just wasn’t there. It’s hard to explain the dreaded Monday feeling unless you feel it too? You know that “the weekend is over” bull shit feeling?
The stress free bliss this morning flooded over me while I slowly made a coffee and cuddled up at the computer to check emails (personal emails!) and get started on a few projects that have been on the back burner. I finished my exam for the Society of Marine Surveyors and had a long convo with my bank about my intended travel.
I can’t say it strongly enough. If you dread Mondays, something’s wrong. I know everyone says that “if you’re doing what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life”, and it always sounded cliche but I am honestly doing exactly what I’m meant to be doing now and it feels pretty damn good.
Six and a half months before the dream begins officially, but it feels a little bit like it just began today. Today is the first day in my life where all I’m doing is working on the dream.
One focus now, one mission. I’m not spending any energy on anyone else’s dream anymore and it feels fantastic!
Love ya, Tim.
