So when I saw the email for today's challenge, I thought - this is going to be a challenge lol...
This post is to be written with me sharing how I would balance a working holiday, if I were living a complete freedom lifestyle & could go anywhere at anytime.
Putting myself in an "imaginary" situation, where I'm away in a truly magical place, somewhere in the world!
I've not thought exactly where I want the scene to be set yet though.
Then I have to have an incredible time, alongside working.
My Working Holiday...
If I'm really honest with myself, I think I'd really struggle with a work & holiday in the mix vacation!
If I go on holiday, I want to go all out & JUST be on holiday!
I want to be swimming in stunning seas...
I want to be dining in beautiful restaurants...
I want to be spending ALL my time with my family ,sightseeing, going on adventures & making lifetime memories .
I'm kinda an all or nothing gal & I know I'd go with the intention of doing some work, but in the end I know I wouldn't.
I'd be having far too much fun...
But having said this (I said this challenge would be a challenge didn't I)...
I have to write about how i WOULD balance this work & vacation thingy...
Day 9 Freedom Blog Challenge - Could you balance a working vacation?
So here goes!
I just wanted to mention first though that I LOVE what I do!
Having an online business is the best thing ever, because of the freedom it gives me & because I can do it around my children.
I don't have to leave them to go to an office.
I don't have to miss out on their childhood milestones.
I've been there for both my kids first steps, their first falls where I could comfort them & their first words (neither of which were "mummy" - great!)
Now that's out the way - I'm ready to share how I'd balance this out!
My magical place I'm picking for this task is the gorgeous & magnificent Thailand.
This place holds a place dear in my heart as it's where my husband & I went on our honeymoon.
Krabi was the exact location, in a beautiful resort that was tucked away & you could only get to it by boat (that's the view from our hotel balcony).
It really was breathtaking...
Plant life so luscious & green & the sea so blue & clear!
So now we know where this working holiday is going to be, it's time to talk about what I'd do while there.
I wish I was there again right now!
I guess it would be pretty simple really!
Say I was going away for a 2 week vacation...
I would work for 1 day & have 13 days pure vacation...
Only joking haha!
I know I've gotta work a bit harder than that.
So for me, I think I would probably do best by working a little each day, rather than having a few full days working.
I'd FLMO... (that's feel like I'm missing out).
I recently got that from - wait for it - don't hate me - Keeping Up With The Kardashians...
I know that if I got up early (when everyone is sleeping anyway) & did a couple of hours work each morning, then I'd be quite happy & guilt free, to continue the rest of my day doing what I want.
Maybe I could check a few emails in the early evening, while everyone is showering & getting ready for dinner - but that really would be it!
That is ALL I would want to do while VacAying' with my family...
Notice how I've planned my "work" time around people when they're doing things that I don't play a part in, like sleeping & showering!
I think that's a pretty well thought out plan.
Here's one final pic to show you just how totally tranquil & awesome this place was...
Most of my posts in this challenge have been pretty long, so this one is going to end now...
Have an awesome day!
Let me know how you'd plan your working vacation!
Speak tomorrow in the final day of the 10 day Freedom Plan Blog Challenge - woohoo!
I always say to people I have the two best jobs in the world. Being a stay at home mum to my two young boys alongside working as an Internet Marketer. I have a huge passion for all things related to list building, audience building & email marketing, so you'll find a lot of content on my blog around these topics!
