70 days. It's been quite the experience living full time in a travel trailer. There's always something new to learn (for some reason the tanks are not emptying completely... that's the newest "lesson"). This life is wonderful, I wouldn't change a thing.
Today, I used the gym for the first time. It's nice to have equipment readily available... and it's rarely used so it's like having our own personal workout room.
In between painting and grading, we've been to the pool and the beach. I got a little sun, I'm not quite as pale as when we first arrived. 😁
The rain returned after two days of very warm weather. Which means I painted inside today. I'm back to working regularly again. Moving forward with plans to create the best year yet (and finish projects that have been waiting to be released).
I am finally getting my head wrapped around the fact that this really is my life now. Growing up on a farm, living in Idaho my entire life, I never imagined I'd be living wherever I park. I am so blessed to have this opportunity! And blessed to be able to stay connected... no matter where I am.
Through my business, in meetings and conversations, it keeps coming up that people are so overwhelmed right now... trying to make decisions, trying to come up with answers.
Trying. Trying. Trying. Searching for what's next instead of relaxing into the flow of what is.
Over and over again friends have said this. But they aren't doing anything to change it. Maybe because it is what they're used to. Because "being busy" - especially during the holidays - is what everyone is used to. But it doesn't have to be that way.
Are you enjoying the moment, or are you worried about the next thing you must do?
I ask you to take time to just BE. it's worth every minute, I promise. All the things will still be there. Your time with loved ones is what's most important. Your time to take care of yourself - do something you love. Go play in the rain, jump in a puddle, laugh, play, LIVE. Take the time to enjoy the company.
Take the time to BE. There's magic in the stillness.

I had a dream that I was traveling all over the world. In less than 6 months, I sold almost everything I own...bought a Toy Hauler (the "garage" is my art studio) and am now living wherever, whenever...just me, my art, and my cats.
