#066 - Stop Fancying Others' Lives

When I was little, I used to wonder:

"How cool it would be to be able to travel and work simultaneously?"

'Digital Nomad' wasn't a commonly used term back then.

I now can work from anywhere I want in the world.

Except, I can't.

No one is stopping me. It's just wasn't how I imagined it to be.

They just showed me the good parts. Social media is filled with eye-catching stuff to inject a feeling of FOMO in you.

Real life is not so simple. You'll always have problems. And when you carry the perception that once you're able to do a particular thing, your life will be ideal.

I hate to break it to you - but it won't.

Dream big. However, do not make your present self miserable by setting false and unrealistic expectations.

Next time you're tempted by looking at something or someone on the internet, pause for a moment and be grateful for everything you have first.
