Camp Life


This is where I spend the majority of my day. Sometimes I wonder why I chose to spend 5 months of my life asking people “for here or to go?” But then I remember that it’s about so much more than that. It has been exactly one year since we pulled away from our old life. I remember it very clearly. We had two of our best friends helping us make the transition. It was probably one of the most emotional days of my life. From the technicals of figuring out how to live in an rv and how to get it out of the driveway to leaving our home and walking away from everything conventional. I have not one regret though ! This has been the best decision our family has made yet. Ill never forget trying to get this rv into our space at the campground. So many tears were shed. Tensions were unbelievably high. Ugh. I hope I’m never that stressed out again haha. But then we finally got it in there. And the nicest rv family came over with words and food and encouragement and I knew it was all going to be alright. Of course now I cant imagine living life in anything else or in any other way. That’s the beauty of the human spirit. It just acclimates as long as you let that positivity flow. The bottom line is we all create our own happiness and no matter what the extenuating circumstances it’s completely up to you. You can have all the stuff and money in the world. None of it matters. You have to follow you’re heart and live everyday doing at least one thing you love. Otherwise. What’s the point ? As we spend our time in the road I realize these cliches exist for a reason. It’s easy to get caught up in the day to day and become complacent not having to evaluate your choices. It’s been really eye opening at times in the road because every choice we make forces us to really look at ourselves and our family and determine the best outcome. Looking that closely into myself is really difficult sometimes but so worth it. I now know that monotony will be my demise. And I’m making choices everyday to nurture my creativity and free spirit. None of us really know what the hell we are doing. So we just have to figure out what we’re going to do with our 100 years and follow our heart.
