A NEW SELF
Hi, I’m Veronika, the author of this website and I love tea (drinking a cuppa right now). I have recently moved to Scotland to embrace the opportunity of starting from the beginning.
“ I AM GOING SELF-EMPLOYED! ”
Three months after coming back to London from travelling the world, I landed what was not my dream job in a creative agency, but I thought, was a great chance to experience the Graphic Design industry. Also, it was the only job I got offered. 10 months of struggle forced me to take a step back and dig deep inside to revisit the purpose of my life. I thought about who I really wanted to be and what I really aspire to pursue. To some, it might not sound like a big deal, but until I experienced a ‘proper’ full time job, I thought that the freelance life wouldn’t be for me. Well, at least not yet.
For the special occasion of diving into my first post, I have decided to start with all the things that excite me about going self-employed, as well as the things that I am afraid of now that I am jumping into an uncertain lifestyle.
Leap into the big wishes of mine and watch how they become a reality (or not) in the future.
THE DESIRED LIFE
- Finding a routine that suits me and planning my commitments according to that.
- I am hoping to live a life that fulfils me. A life where I don’t have to be resolving my life and work balance but find the right balance between doing what I love and looking after myself mentally and physically.
I’M AFRAID OF…
- … Feeling lonely and closing myself in a work bubble at home all the time, only interacting with people in the online world, especially now that I am living in a small town in Scotland.
- … Losing a balance between work and looking after myself.
When I see all of this written down, I am not sure if there is enough that things I am afraid of. But I guess, it’s good when the excitement overpowers the worries, right?
More than anything, I hope I will have the strength to keep going and will persevere to keep trying.
CHEERS to the biggest adventure life brings us!
