Often the things that weigh us down are practically invisible.
Holding yourself to a ridiculous personal standard, or trying to keep pace with the 24-7 information deluge, or wishing and wanting things in your life to be different all while feeling like you’re running to stand still … to name a few. It can feel relentless and be utterly exhausting.
I speak from personal experience.
While you don’t have to look far to see that you’re not alone in the rat race, there’s no true solace in such company. If anything, commiseration only further reinforces your sense that no one is immune and that there’s no hope of escape. *But there is.*
Many wait and hope for that fated “someday”, or perhaps retirement, or vacation, or after you lose 10 pounds, or after you get out of debt, or after the kids are in college, or __(fill in the blank)_.
Do your responsibilties and “to-dos” feel never ending? Does your longing to have free time and the mental space for creativity and relaxation feel like pure fantasy??
HERE’S A TRUTH BOMB: As long as you’re carrying around emotional heaviness, feeling pervasive angst and like you’re caught in a status quo race to a finish line your heart isn’t really in, you are never going to feel the freedom that life has to offer.
And that would be a damn shame.
I said I’d travel more – someday.
I said I’d spend more time in nature – soon.
I said I’d work less – right after x, y, z project was done.
I said I’d take better care of myself – tomorrow.
I said I’d nurture my relationships more – soon.
I said I’d bring on more support – someday.
I said I’d simplify my life – next week.
I said I’d create more order and have less stuff – soon.
I said I’d have more free time – after x, y, z, and a, b, c was done.
Ever said any of these things? Ever start and then stop, and then start over again, and again, recommitting and having busy-ness de-rail your best intentions? Ever lost your focus and find yourself falling back into old routines?
I finally decided I wasn’t going to wait anymore or let my true priorities be de-railed. Nomadic living has been the answer to all of the above. I downsized, and together with my boyfriend and dog, we live full-time in an RV, traveling the country and working from the road. I believe we have cracked a lifestyle code.
