Foreign Earned Income Exclusion

I currently work from home for a U.S. employer. I work from home 100% of the time, all I need is internet and my laptop. I can travel and work from literally anywhere in the world (and i have!).

I recently found out about the Foreign Earned Income Exclusion where if you work abroad for almost a year you may qualify for this. I've done a lot of reading and looked at the examples from here:

https://www.irs.gov/Individuals/Inte...come-Exclusion

Most of these examples are employer initiated the employee to move due for business reasons... but what if I decide to move and not employer initiated? Would I still qualify? My employer will be notified and they are ok where I live as long as I can fulfill my responsibilities. I can still meet all requirements having a bonafide residence, join local clubs abroad, establish my residency there ....

Please advise =)
