Hi, I’m Caroline

Let me introduce myself, I am 26. Three months ago, I was half-way through a leadership graduate program. It was a well paying job, with great benefits. A promising career that lead me to live for one year in Italy and another year in beautiful Vienna. It gave me the opportunity to travel a lot. I had extraordinary coaches and an outstanding mentor. Through their thought-provoking questions and advice, I was learning more about myself than I had ever before. I felt I was developing quickly. This program was a true privilege I was given because I had wanted it so damn much, I fought for it and my dream came true.

Then why did I leave?

A few months in the program, when I was in full “ok now it’s time to prove yourself” mode (not a good mode to be in btw), a voice inside me started speaking. It wasn’t a shy voice, it was loud and clear: “Is this it?” “Are you going to work your ass off just for this?” “Isn’t there more to life?”. By this, the voice meant the impact I have on others and the world in general but also my lifestyle. Wasn’t I meant for more than just work commute and sleep?

At first, this voice just visited me once in a while, mostly during long boring meetings. She would politely leave me alone the rest of the time. But you know her (yep I know you do), she tends to come back more often as time passes by. She wasn’t pleased to see that nothing had changed. She wanted to make sure I took her seriously and kept urging me to take action.

That’s when it got really tough, I felt stuck. I didn’t know what I was meant to do.

This is what this blog is about. I would like to share with you my Quarter-life Quest. My journey to getting unstuck, figuring out what it is I am really longing for and gathering the courage to follow my own path. Hopefully, this can help you on your own life quest, whatever stage your are at. This is a rocky road, a great adventure, one that is worth it. Let’s pack our bags and go on it together…
