Don’t Listen to Naysayers

January 9, 2012 |

For the longest time, I delayed telling my parents about my plan to go full-time RVing. I went back and forth with myself on when was the most appropriate time, how I should bring the subject up, and what exactly I was going to say. In the end, it just sort of came out while…

3 Tips to Get Started Jogging

January 2, 2012 |

Ahh, a new year, full of possibilities. Last Monday I wrote a post about my take on resolutions and the one thing I didn’t cover was how I got started jogging. Before this, I’d never ran or jogged before in my life, unless you count playing as a child. It wasn’t something I had seriously…

Now we’re less than a week…

Give Yourself Permission

December 19, 2011 |

Very often what stands between us and a life of purpose and fulfillment is, ourselves. We think we aren’t clever enough, or knowledgeable enough, or privileged enough to realize our biggest dreams and deepest desires.

Living In The Moment, and Looking Towards Tomorrow

December 12, 2011 |

Happiness now, or happiness later? I have given this question a lot of consideration since deciding to go full-timing. I’ve already shared my thoughts about how postponing what you want to do with your life until retirement is a bad idea, but I’m still dealing with this conundrum in other ways. Also, as of this…

Fighting Fear

December 5, 2011 |

There I was, the keys to the truck in my hand, and $8,833 less in my bank. Just minutes before I’d been eager, excited, and ready. Now I was feeling something akin to terror. What had I just done? I’d traded in my cute, gas efficient, and dependable little car for this 10 year old…

Remembering How to Dream

November 14, 2011 |

Do you remember back when you were a child, how easy it was to dream? You wanted to be a firefighter, a gymnast, or perhaps a professional football player. You wanted to walk on the moon, be a horse jockey, or if you were me in the second grade, a rock climber. It was easy,…
