Does your job at sea no longer give you fulfilment and happiness or is ship lifestyle no longer for you? Or both…
Is the energy, happiness, spark, and excitement for working at sea low? The thought ‘I swear this is my last contract’ is now a frequent visitor in your mind and you start planning your next vacation a few weeks after returning to contract?
To where break times or port days are now most welcomed and certain small tasks have started to annoy you. Perhaps you find yourself to be a little less social now and are running more on auto pilot?
I completely understand this and more, there is the feeling that you know you are not happy where you are but how does one even navigate a change from ship life to land life right. Knowing that there must be something more out there as being stuck in this lifestyle and being unfulfilled is wearing you down emotionally and physically, the lust for life has diminished and you are left feeling a little lost and unhappy.
It is very common for many ships’ crew to stay onboard longer than what one would want, and with great reason. Working at sea is a unique lifestyle and it is one that most folks on land cannot relate to fully, this making it feel more challenging to transition as who can best help and support this process.
The many thoughts of how do I move ashore, how do I find work that I can do and will enjoy, how will it work financially, and will I be able to adjust and be happy? Can you relate?
However, I am here to tell you and show you after two major career changes, both of which brought two major lifestyle changes, that moving from ship to shore and having your land life that gives you fulfilment, happiness, and work-life balance is possible for everyone to have, including you! And the process to get there is not as difficult as you may think.
