As a full-time RVer, I have more leeway in where and how I spend my time. I can decide what part of the year I want to work, and what part I want to travel. I can more or less decide where I want to travel. I do have more freedom than the stationary person working a 9-5.
But there’s no exemption from life’s pitfalls. Sometimes repairs, weather, lack of internet, or other needs derail plans. Nomads don’t get a free pass.
Currently, I’m stuck waiting. It can be really frustrating, waiting on someone else when you have plans. We’re all so busy, our lives are so full that wasting time waiting can feel unbearable.
Sometimes there’s just no help for it. Sometimes, there’s nothing you can do to speed up the process, and the best choice is to accept the situation with grace and try to make the most of it. Get other things on your to-to list done while you’re waiting. Do something relaxing to take your mind off it.
Know that it’s just temporary. That in the grand scheme of things this is just one tiny blip that won’t even matter a month from now.
