Everything grows through the window of never giving up
Three days ago everything was a struggle. I realized that it was time to hit the road again, and I felt overwhelmed. As a #modernmonk, I’m used to moving when the wind moves me. But it doesn’t make it any less disorienting and exhausting to fully face the unknown... again. So many parts of me wanted to quit.
Thankfully, my years living as a #nomad are starting to show: I’m more equipped in my #vanlife than ever before: I know what I need and what I don’t. I’ve got organizational strategies. I’ve pre-set places to poop, shower, park, and charge electronics. A couple days of rearranging my life and belongings, and I’m back to confidence.
But it’s been a long haul: In 2012, I left my job as a middle-school teacher with a vision of living out of my van and sharing music and art. I was hardly a musican, and had no idea how to live on the road. But the call was undeniable. I took the leap (or the leap took me...) It’s been almost 7 years, and I’m finally comfortable in my turtle shell.
I’m excited to share my journey. #climatechange and other Earth changes are asking more and more of us to return to a #nomadiclife. I’ve learned so much from the folks who treaded the path before me, and I’m grateful to get to share the what I’ve learned.
We are in this together.
Stay tuned for more reflections and tips from #lifeontheroad.
