The Pursuit of Happiness

I’ve been staring at a blank screen for a few minutes now, not quite sure what to write to the world. I wanted my first post to be epic & meaningful, filled with words of wisdom. Just the thought of having a blog rather freaks me out. People actually care what I have to say these days. Feels odd sometimes, I used to be the dorky girl in the back of class, going great lengths to go unnoticed.

I look in the mirror and this amazing woman stands before me. I’m not quite sure where she came from or when exactly she revealed herself. She has a voice with no muzzle & has a I-don’t-care-what-the-hell-you-think-of-me attitude. Who is this chick?

If you don’t already know, I live in my van. Yes, a van. Believe me, I sometimes have a hard time comprehending the idea myself. I bought the van with the idea I would do some basic traveling. Go here and there, jump in the ocean, keep myself busy till my 9-5 started again in the Spring. Boy was I ever wrong.

The Van has completely changed from a mobile home to a movement on wheels. I’ve traveled over 8,000 in the past few months with just a simple message. Don’t let the things you own, own you.

I don’t own much, have very little money and I could never imagine being more happy than I am now. I had a friend tell me just the other day, what I do scares him. He just couldn’t wrap his mind around the idea of having no income or not knowing what was going to happen tomorrow. To me, that’s what keeps me going everyday. The unkown is what gets my heart racing, why I crawl out of bed everyday. This is my life & I have no intention on ever changing it.
