Oh, I feel overwhelmed and rebellious today.
A few years ago, we left the tiny church in our small village that we had been attending. We had serious concerns about many things happening in the church, and we couldn’t stay. In many ways, our stay at that church was one of the painful experiences of our lives. However, while we were there, many questions were stirred up in us, and those questions caused us to seek answers, which has led us to truth, change, and growth. So I think it was good.
It’s really exciting–but also scarey–thinking about living full-time in an RV. Can we really do this? Do we really want to? I don’t know.
EJ and I have been considering, “What if we really do sell our house and RV full-time?”
I emailed a friend and told her what we are thinking about full-time RVing. Then I spent the rest of the day thinking, “Oh, she’s going to think we are NUTS!” But she surprised me with her support. She said that she was going to suggest we do this very thing. She said:
We have begun to consider “what if’s.” “What If’s” open up possibilities and dreams. Our biggest “what if” sounds absolutely insane: What if we sold our house and traveled in the RV full time–even for the rest of our lives or until we find a place that we’d like to settle in? I know, sounds crazy and foolish. But a lot of Baby Boomers are doing this very thing–selling their homes and spending the rest of their lives traveling. We met an 85-year-old man at the last campground we were at who, for the last 18 years, has spent 7 months living in the campground in Michigan and the remainder of the year at his “home” in Alabama. When EJ and I think about what we love, we list: We love traveling together. We love beautiful places. I saw EJ start to regain energy and joy at the campgrounds. He could breathe better. His stress level when down. What if?
The last year has been difficult. More difficult than normal, that is. We have experienced, one after another, a stream of heartbreak, sorrow, frustration, and trouble.
