I now have 6 months of nomadic life under my belt, during which I’ve spent nearly every night sleeping in a tent. I know, I know, it sounds insane, I thought the same 6 months ago. Before this the longest I had spent in a tent was 5 nights in a row.
For the past 4 months I have done little writing, even though I desired to. I never learned to write by hand properly, my handwriting is ineligible and I’m slow. Carrying around a moleskin was not working for me, my generation is probably the first to experience a lack of need to write by hand because of the computer. It’s sad and I’ve tried to make it better, but the truth is I wasn’t motivated enough to change.
Every once in awhile a book comes along that shakes you to the core and makes you reevaluate everything. David has written one of those life altering books in A Beautiful Anarchy. David has experienced much in his life, good, bad and ugly. He’s been through bankruptcy, divorce and shattering every bone in his legs. His wisdom in this book comes from real experiences.
One of the challenges I immediately ran into during my trial month of living on the road was how to edit photos on my laptop, in daylight, with no power. I could find a coffee shop or library to cure all of my problems, but temperatures often dictate that I not leave my dog in the car for too long. I had to come up with solutions.
This is a follow up to my previous post How I completely Changed My Life in 1 Year. The response to this post was overwhelming, I was blown away by the amount of people that were inspired to change their life for the better. I never imagined the impact it would have.
Recently one of my workshop participants inspired me to follow up on this post. A PhD. with an incredibly satisfying, interesting job actually came to me to find their path in life. When he shared this with me I was shocked and slightly terrified! How could I possibly help this incredibly smart, well traveled gentleman with much more life experience than me figure out what to do with his life? I was just trying to figure out my own!
My year long journey began in Death Valley, a fitting place to say goodbye to my former life that disintegrated in a flash. Every new journey in life must begin with a death of something else though. This was the beginning of a new, fulfilling life of adventure and exploration.
If you’re an avid follower of my facebook page you know that I have left the comfort of civilization to embark on a journey of self exploration, and a photographic exploration of the American West. I started this journey back in January when I decided to give the nomad life a try for a month.
This time last year I wrote the blog post How I completely changed my life in 1 year. Here I am a year later and I’m shocked to look back and see how much has changed again.
Every new year we look to the future and decide this is the year for change. Change how we eat, start working out, learn something new, change careers, be healthier and happier. But where do we start?
Most of us have come to accept that new years resolutions typically do not work, I’ve never been a fan of them. So I wanted to share with you how I changed nearly every aspect of my life for the positive in a single year and how you can too, whether it’s a resolution or not.
When you’re ready to accept change as a positive part of an ever evolving, dynamic, fulfilling life; read on…
