When you become a full-time RVer, or embark on some other kind of epic trip, it’s easy to let the pitfalls drag you down. Things break; people are strange; the dream job is still a job. Sometimes you’re gonna get sand in your margarita. It’s easy to get discouraged, but when those situations come up, remember:
Don’t worry about the potholes.
Just enjoy the journey.
“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art – write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.” ~ Neil Gaiman
I discovered these wise words on Facebook. (Can’t remember where, unfortunately, or I’d source it properly.) The philosophy is a perfect fit for our current RV lifestyle.
Nearly everywhere we go, Mike and I talk about whether we’d like to live in that location when we ultimately give up our nomadic ways. We’ve got miles to go before we reach that point, but we’re storing away memories so we’ll be ready.
Horses at play kept me company on my run through our RV park in Hermosa, South Dakota.
