I started my great adventure living life big, in a tiny vintage trailer on the road. Any lingering doubts or fears of how I would adjust to all the changes in my life were unfounded. The freedom was incredible. For the first time in my life to wake up in the morning and just ask my self.... What do you want to do today? Having the freedom to consider the options and just do it has been life altering. I grew comfortable with time spent alone. I have loved it.
I just barely got started when life changed... Family needs grounded me back to a single spot. I am doing what I feel I need to do but I wondered how I would adjust to the changes in my life.
Maybe you have too.
So I found myself having planned for one adventure and find myself now on a path to a very different adventure. In some ways it has been a difficult journey... Parenting a teenager is never easy, but when it's one you love AND they need you, it does come with rewards.
I have felt every emotion listed in the grief process (some many, many, more times than once). Maybe I'm not done with them yet.
In finding ways to make my life work, I haven't given up on my dream. It just has to look different for the time being. We are making time for adventures. (I hope you are still tagging along)
trailer now that I have a Big Truck to do all that heavy duty work!
I'm not waiting for dreams to come true, (You never now what will happen)
but rather I'm going to make dreams come true every day.
