A lot of people ask us, “so, how long will you be on the road for?” To be honest, I don’t know the answer to that question. This could be a short term adventure or it very well could be a long term adventure. All I know is that I do like the idea of traveling and working online / remotely. I also like the idea of clearing debt and having less expenses.
Right now we are paying $500 / month for rent (not including electric). If we would have decided not to travel full-time and stayed in our old apartment, we would have been paying around $1500 / month. I miss that apartment, it was nice, but I don’t miss paying that amount. Now the campground we are staying at may not exactly be a luxury resort, but it is peaceful and it has a small pond / beach.
I watched one of Will Smiths Vlogs. The episode was all about fear and it really resonated with me, especially with what we are going through now. Some of the best things in life are on the other side of fear. I tend to experience fear around connecting with others, being seen and being heard. When I do allow myself to follow through, I do feel better on the other side. I’m usually happy that I decided fear was not going to get the best of me.
It is always difficult in the moment, but if we can just remind ourselves when we our feeling the height of our fear, that just as intense as you may be feeling scared, can be the same intensity of joy if you just go for it. I always feel better when I face fear and conquer it. It doesn’t always mean I am successful on the other side, but it was a step in the right direction.
I don’t know where this journey will take us. I anticipate seeing new places, meeting new people, growing our brand, but I don’t know where we will end up. Perhaps we fall in love with this life style and just keep doing it. Yes, some people actually do that. Or we do this for a while and an opportunity arises that is too good to pass up. I don’t know and that is okay. I just know that I am happy and I’m excited about the future.
When I was younger I always thought it would be a waste not to see the world. No matter how we achieve it, I am driven to accomplish it. For now, it is early mornings, meditation, psychic readings, blogs, vlogs and who knows what else. New Jersey – show me what you got!
