給我一條美麗的路 ~第一集~ 我意識到，這不是我真正想要的生活!
Say YES to a Beautiful Life. Episode 1- I realised that I wasn’t living in a life I truly wanted!
Just two years ago, I realised that I wasn’t living the life I truly wanted. I was overworked, for someone else’s goal. I have to confess that egocentrism used to be my profound characteristic, however, I noticed it has been suppressed too much in the return of a “decent” salary. I came to a thought that I have achieved so many for someone else’s successes, how could I take those P&L, sales volume, turnover etc etc as the vision of my life? As an executive manager, I hold the team’s KPI tight in my mind, kept tracking it on and off. Hold on!!!! What’s the KPI for my own life then? I asked myself seriously. One morning, on the way to work, I walked pass the path which I walked for thousands times from home to metro station, in the mid way, I looked back, physically I did not, spiritually I did looked back far the past 10 years in my life, I came to realize that I achieved NOTHING for myself indeed. It wasn’t a sad moment though, because I am a person with DREAMS. On the same day, I tendered my resignation.
That wasn’t an “all-of-a-sudden” decision, the “quit now and go travel” idea had been looping in my mind for almost 2 years. As a very logical and practical person, I tried to weight all the pros and cons, considered all the “what and how”, analysed all the ‘if-then’. Just so many times, I could not over the foreseeable uncertainty in life, I put aside my dreams in a hidden corner and back to the soulless office work again. I was waiting for a moment when my COURAGE win the battle.
I don’t disagree with all those people spending their entire life in working for owing a property or staying their entire life in comfort zone, its the matter of trade -off and one’s own choice for life. But I knew these are not for me.
2014 July, I loaded up my backpack and jumped on a plane to Barcelona. My plan? Travel as long as I could, meet awesome people, make awesome memories. I hoped that I could find my way of living in the world, I wanted the whole world to be my home but not just Hong Kong. That wasn’t my first time solo travel, still, I had a bit of panic before and at the start of the travel. Those emotions came from “Stepping into uncertainty”, “Chance of giving up a decent lifestyle” , “Did I make a wrong decision?”, “How to justify my acts?”. The mentality transition between two totally different life styles was just too overwhelming, I could not get rid of them until one day I collapsed in Belgium… … to be continued

Theme: So many “First time” I experienced, aren’t those something stay in your memory longer than achieving a sales target KPI? 🙂
EPISODE 2 第二集
Give the Flat Life a Shake! 給生活一個搖晃!READ
這麼不經不覺，從決定 “Quit now and Go Travel” 到現在已經兩年了！！這兩年百般滋味在心頭，人生中最新鮮的，最興奮的，最低潮的也經歷過了。為慶祝持續了這麼久的毅力和決心，和2016的來臨，我決定弄一個網絡連續散文 – <給我一條美麗的路>，與大家分享我的故事。雖然我fan page followers 寥寥無幾(笑)，但我仍然會用心去寫，希望給有緣份的讀者一個心靈調劑。我知道沒有人不想兩袖清風拾起passport便跳上飛機再回頭拋句 ‘忽念，不回來了’。可惜，真正做到的人又有多少? 可能，”只要有夢想，凡事可成真”這句話不是騙人的。。。

Its been 2 years I made the decision ‘Quit now and GO Travel ‘! I experienced so many ups and downs, excitement, desperateness. To celebrate the persistence and determination lasted so far, I am writing a bit about my story with a lovely title <Say YES to a Beautiful Life> to share my experiences, how I conquered the uncertainty feelings, how I fell and how I stood still, still. I wish to cheer up the soul of people who read, I don’t have 10 thousands followers to read the story though (smile). Take the passport, jump into a plane and travel as long as possible would never be the reality for everybody. “What can be imagined, can be achieved” might still be truth… …
New episode will be released once a week. Stay tuned on my Facebook m’Solo Travel.
