Do I Deserve a Career Break?

I was once very depressed. I lose my appetite for work. I hate my routines. I would give anything to be in an island and selling ice cream rather than on my desk, working on a recommendation deck.

Question. What and Where I see myself in the next year? Hmmm, easy. I see my self STILL working at my current office as a planner. See? There’s nothing significant will happen until next year. And I need something significant.

I. need. such. a .refreshment.

I’ve been working for 5 years, yeah I know, that’s a baby age in the working world.

I love my job so much. I love it even if I have to work late at night for weeks or months, even if I have to work on the weekends. I love my working environment, I love my bosses, I love my colleagues, I love my clients, I love all the things that my office has offered, knowledge, chance, even the pressure.

Maybe that’s why. Because here is my comfort zone and you know what the old-man said about that?

PUSH YOURSELF OUT OF COMFORT ZONE!
BECAUSE IT IS WHERE MAGIC HAPPENS. WHERE GREAT THING HAPPENS.

or

THE COMFORT ZONE IS THE GREAT ENEMY TO CREATIVITY

or

GET COMFORTABLE, WITH BEING OUTSIDE YOUR COMFORT ZONE.
THAT’S THE ONLY WAY TO GROW

And BOOM! I know that I have to get out of it.

A friend brought up WHV Australia conversation at one of our hangin-out session. Maybe Work and Holiday Visa sounds more familiar in your ear. No?
WHV is a visa that allows the holder to enjoy holiday while working in Australia. Or the other way around.

Long story short, at the beginning of this year, I finally have guts to do it. Remember what I said in my Travel Plans 2015? That I have a bigger plan this year? Yes, this is what I meant. So many things crossed my mind, and of course, so many WHAT-IFs following. But what the hell! It’s only for one freaking year! Why worried too much!

So here I am.

I just got my recommendation letter from our beloved government. AND?
I got confused all over again. Do I deserved A Career Break?

Then I found this quote :

YOU ARE ONLY CONFINED BY THE WALLS YOU BUILD YOURSELF

and this :

IF YOUR DREAMS DON’T SCARE YOU, THEY’RE NOT BIG ENOUGH

Thanks to all my friends who help me through all this confusion, who always have my back and give a hundred percent support to me this far.
Time to lodge the visa! 😉
