Why I Scrapped My Big Career for The Long Journey
Cassandra Smolcic

Girl, I so feel you! I worked my ass off in advertising for about 6 years before my scoliosis and chronic back pain took a turn for the worst. After I had to stop in the streets because of shooting pains in my heart (I was so short of breath), I knew I had to make a change. Now I work happily as a freelancer from home (at my makeshift standing desk!), do yoga everyday (on my schedule) and just live a less stressed out life. It’s not for everyone, but when you have chronic pain in your life, you can’t live like that forever! I admire your courage and choice. Good luck!!
