Yesterday I heard the news that every employee dreads: your position has been made redundant. As of March 31, 2012, you will be out of a job.
I could panic, yes. I could worry about things like a roof over my head, paying bills, buying food. I could dread having to reduce the life style that I lead – cutting back on entertainment, clothing, and other non-essentials. Instead, I choose to look at this as an opportunity.
I’m going to travel. I have no job to worry about getting back to, and if I pack up all my belongings, and store them in my mother’s basement, cancel my cable and internet, I will have enough money to spend a month, or two, back-packing somewhere in this wide world.
The question is….where.
