Hi everyone. It’s been a long time since I’ve made another blogpost! Shame on me! I will try to post regularly from now on.
A lot has changed in my life so far. This monkey has another job in the same company as we speak, for a higher income. I’ve been preparing for this and aced the exam!
The monthly paycheck increased with about 300 euros! Sounds great right?
Then I took 3 weeks off and focused on my next goals in life. I find it hard to find a balance between my inner monkey and my outer monkey. I’m in a way content with the life I have at the moment, and some other moments my thoughts are elsewhere and I dream about the ideal life. Sounds like it’s not a problem at all, who am I to complain right? This monkey has left the cage for 3 weeks and found it really nice, especially in the first 2 weeks. You’re relaxing, getting rid of all stress in your body and focus on yourself. But in the 3rd week I’ve found that the interaction is not as good when you go to work, you get a bit more alienated and miss on social interactions. All my friends and family went to their jobs and daily routine. Since then I’ve realised it’s just what you make of it. There is no ideal situation. It’s inherent to my nature (human or monkey nature?).
In life we’ve build some powerful routines and it’s just not always as good as it seems. You have accept it and abide by it, not fight it because it will drain you completely.
I’ll post a monthly income report, which should grow more in the future.
What have you been doing in the last few months? Do you recognize yourself in this struggle?
