I’ve been living the life I used to dream when I was young. I reached my goals and I was flying between London and LA in first class at least 4 times a month. I used to have my reserved room in some of the most luxurious hotels in the world and seriously in those years I’ve been living in hotels more than in a real house or apartment.
But something was missing. I didn’t feel complete. I mean, when I was 20 and 30 that was a dream life. Working hard between Miami Beach and NYC, jumping to LA and back in 24 hours and being ready for a shooting in Paris the morning after. Well, something was missing. I was running every day like crazy, it was never enough. My managers pressed me to do more and more, to make more and more money because everything is related with money in this business.
Well, one day I said “That’s ok, I did my best, I reached my dreams, now I can stop for awhile”. And even with penalties to pay, I decided it was the perfect time to stop.
Now I live at the farm and because of the coronavirus I spend the most part of my time home. I even built my own studio in one of the labs inside the same farm.
Well, I feel home, I feel satisfied, I feel happy but most of all I feel alive.
I deconstructed my life step by step in the last 10 years. I embraced minimalism and meditation and my life changed like I wanted it to change.
I started reading about healthy life even if with my daughter we cook hamburgers at the barbecue every weekend and I keep fighting with my diet…????????
Of course I will always travel and work in LA or London but now I can manage my own professional life with managers and agents that respect my needs.
I live off the grid and I don’t need anything else in my life.
