Everything you want to achieve still seems too far away, even though you’ve been trying for so long. You feel like you are punching brick walls, fighting unwinnable battles. You are drained of energy, your brain is mush and your heart is joyless.
This last couple of days have been like that for me. So, I retreated into myself for a bit and ‘nested’.
If like us, you are pursuing and unconventional lifestyle, an alternative way to earn your money, different from mainstream expectations, you know you have additional challenges, like finding financial stability or constantly have to defend your choices when faced with other people’s ignorance and prejudice. So, when your efforts don’t amount to any results or you have to deal with negative people all the time, it does get to you, right?
So, what can you do? Do you quit? Do you give in to sadness?NOOOO!!!!!!!
Not everyone understood or approved our choice to live full-time in a motorhome. Not surprising. We were ready for the worst reactions possible but always hoped for acceptance and support, especially from the closest to us.
Most were excited and curious about our adventure and understood the goals and details of our plan. This was rewarding to us.
Some had doubts and worries about our future but seemed to accept the change.
