Living Healthy

Leave a comment Standard

What does it mean to live healthy? When I was younger, it wasn’t something I thought about. Fast food, soda, junk food, alcohol, cigarettes, drugs – I knew exactly what it meant to live unhealthy. As I got older I slowly purged the poisons that I put in my body. It wasn’t until about a year ago when I took my health much more serious. I’m far from perfect and I don’t even believe in perfection, but I do believe I can always improve. I need to be more consistent with my workouts, stretching and water intake. 

As I continue to take my health more seriously, I do ponder on what it really means to live a healthy life. I don’t have the answer for others, but I do have an idea what may work for me. I think health is more than just your physical health. I think living a  healthy life encompasses all aspects of your life. How does working a job you despise affect your body, mind, emotions and relationships? How does being in a negative relationship or non supportive community affect your overall wellness? What if you struggle expressing yourself and end up suppressing everything? How does a negative perspective on your identity, body image, society and the world impact your health? How does not knowing you truth affect your health and your life?

So yes, I do think health goes beyond the physical. For me, I think working a job you enjoy is important. If you are dedicating most of your time to earning money, then you might as well enjoy it, right? I think that being happy is apart of being healthy. When you are happy, there is permission for spirit. Your body runs best on your energy. When you are happy, you tend to be more present. I think health is all about being present and aware; knowing the right food to eat, the best exercise regiment for you, the right amount of sleep, etc. 

The more present I become the less tolerant I am of toxicity. I don’t have time for negative people or negative environments. What I do have time for is love and purpose. It sounds like some hippy shit, but it can be difficult to maintain a healthy body and push for your dreams. Sometimes you have to eliminate what isn’t working so you can focus your energy on what is best for you. 

Getting grounded, developing a stronger relationship with my body and connecting more to my purpose is what is best for me. That is how I continue to become more aware and more healthy. 

What does living healthy mean for you?

Enthusiasm, Joy & Amusement

Leave a comment Standard

Enthusiasm. When I think of that word, my wife comes to mind. She is one of the most enthusiastic people I have ever met. It is what I love about her. It is a quality within myself that I would like to work on. It is an attractive energy and it feels good. Enthusiasm, joy and amusement are all at the top of our range of emotions. When you are vibrating at these emotions you create space and movement for yourself. 

They say laughter is some of the best medicine out there. When you are vibrating in amusement, your ability to release negative energy greatly increases. Have you ever looked at someone laughing? Their spirit is present. Have you ever looked at someone that is depressed? Their energy is just not there. Sitting at the top of your emotional range gives permission for spirit. 

How do you get happy? Well, I think being healthy is a good foundation, but essentially I think that when you are operating on your energy and it is moving freely, your permission to be happy is high. Think about it. If you are living in an environment you don’t like, working a job you don’t like, operating the way others want you to, can’t have romance or are stuck in a bad relationship and are subscribing to someones negative viewpoint of the world and life, well, your permission for happiness might be very low. You may be running on someone elses energy. What if you were running on your energy?

What is your energy like? What if you started working towards living in a place you love, found a job that fits like a glove (boo ya!), did things your way, fell in love with someone amazing and shifted your view of yourself, the world and others. It’s not something that necessarily happens overnight, but you can take steps to move in that direction. 

Being happy is a choice. You can choose to be happy or you can sit in those lower emotions and remain stuck. When you are in the lower emotions it will always feel like there is no way out or there is not point to anything. Bull shit! There is a way out and there is a point to your life. The answer is within yourself. Discover your energy. Heal with your energy. Climb back up to enthusiasm, joy and amusement!

Married Without Children

Leave a comment Standard

So, you are married, but you are traveling full-time in a RV. What about having children?

At this point in our lives we are just not wanting to have kids. We changed the direction of our life together and are focusing on growing our new business. Before we would even think about having kids, our business has to be established and we would need to be hitting a certain financial goal. Aside from that, we just started this adventure on the road. We want to get in as much travel time before having a kid. I can only imagine that it would be more difficult trying to travel. 

That is something we also thought about. If we do choose to have a child, would we continue traveling full time? I don’t know the answer to that. I know people do it and that it is possible. I also know that after a kid reaching a certain age, living in a RV probably wouldn’t work. We all need our space. 

All I know is that I want to travel majority of my life. I love it. Right now, we just aren’t ready to have kids. Until that time comes, we will revisit the topic and see what we want to do. I think it would be an amazing experience to have kids. I really do, but right now it is all about building the business and having new experiences. 

Something I would also like to mention is that I think it is okay not to have kids. I know people that don’t and I think that is absolutely fine. It’s a real possibility that Heather and I won’t. We just don’t know right now and that is okay.

So yes, we are married, we are traveling full time and the only plan we have with the topic of having kids is that we will revisit it down the road.

Welcome to the Dream

Leave a comment Standard

I look in the mirror, I no longer see red
What happened? Was it killed off? Is it dead?
I look inside and I see the ocean instead
Shimmering blue light, peaceful and fluid
The energy is strong, the energy is calm
Isn’t this what I waited for so long? 
It’s not out there, but here
Welcome to the dream
I won’t miss the terror or the fear
How I behave without the ocean waves
A slave to my own resistance
A slave to a different kind of game
But with blue in the view 
I feel like someone new
What happened? Was it killed off? Is it dead?
I look in the mirror, I no longer see red

Full Speed Ahead

Leave a comment Standard

You are doing it all wrong
It repeats in my head
Who the hell are you?
To try to get ahead
Do it like us all
It’s just the only way
You know you are going to fall
You know you can’t do things your way
I feel the thoughts, old and new
Light them up and light the fuse
My strength inside can conquer these lies
Lay them to rest and make this my time
Time to sit in my identity
And put the past behind
Full speed ahead
It’s time to say goodbye

What’s in your Bucket List?

Leave a comment Standard

In less than a month we will be leaving New Jersey and heading north. It has been an interesting first month living in our RV full time. We have experienced the stress of travel, already made repairs on the RV, defused the fears around wireless internet and dealt with barking dogs. Luckily the poor dogs were taken away by animal control, so they can actually be properly cared for. After a long stretch of rain we found a leak, but sealed it up and took care of it. The internet is not as bad as I thought as it would be. Sure, it can be annoying to be limited and can be slow when uploading digital content, but overall I am happy with it. I’m also happy overall with the entire RV experience. I don’t mind living in a small space. I feel more like myself and my relationship with my wife is better than ever. We have brought back the adventurous spirit we had when we first met. It was all we ever talked about; traveling here, traveling there, traveling everywhere. A few years went by and we ended up doing just the opposite. Now though, we are doing exactly what we intended from the beginning!

Crossing off bucket list experiences is important to us. When it comes to your bucket list, I think you have to be a little selfish. You have to give yourself permission and believe in yourself. People will tell you that you can’t, usually because they didn’t take the necessary steps to cross off experiences on their bucket list. When you pursue goals and dreams it lights people up. They either become angry or they become inspired. I always hope people become inspired. 

Experiences are what motivate me. They are my motivation to be healthy and they are what keep me alive. My bucket list experiences are not a maybe, they are a “I have to.” I strongly value experiences more than physical objects I desire. Sure I would love to own a ’69 SS Camaro, but if I never end up getting one I am not going to cry on my death bed about it. Now if I am in the process of dying and I didn’t see the great wall of China or the Pyramids, I’m going to be a little upset. Can you have it all? I think it is very possible, but for now I’m just going to focus on what is in my bucket list.

Landmarks, national parks, monuments, highways, airports, trains, foreign countries, RV parks, music, comedy, poetry, creative writing, film and businesses. Thats whats in my bucket list. My bucket is the reason I wake up everyday. It is what keeps my hungry. 
What makes you hungry? What is in your bucket list?

Dream

Leave a comment Standard

Purpose runs through me 
Oh, these wild rivers
I haven’t felt this
Felt this bliss, in some time
No regrets, would never rewind
This is my life and today I feel fine
The dream is in my view
The dream is entering my body
Transformation is to de-charge a picture
I’m lighting up everybody
Make a change or stay the same
Dreams are for the taking
A bold and radical artist in the making
Inspiration like cosmic dust
The Earth I must, get in touch
With the god of my heart hovering above
I feel unstoppable 
I don’t feel hate, I just feel love
