Statistically we live to be 78.7 according to Fortune If I live to be 78.7 years old I have approximately 17.3 years left on planet earth. That doesn’t feel like much time yet when you make the most of every day it’s an abundant amount of time to fullfill dreams, make a difference and have fun. Yes statistically my life is over 3/4 behind me or with 1/4 left (God willing) to live my best years yet!
As I chose to live a life as a nomad and set out into the great unknown September 2018 I have felt like I am on the second leg of my journey. The first leg into adulthood was a marriage of 9 years then raising 2 children as a single mom while keeping a roof over our head with sticks and bricks. That span of time was approximately 19 years give or take when my daughter got married and my role as a mom ceased to exist as I knew it.. being needed to console, advise or help as most mothers want to do in their kids lives. I now consider myself as just plain single as being ‘married’ and ‘divorced’ feels like a lifetime ago.
Now instead of the mom role I’m a grandma to 3 sweet peas. I love and miss them dearly but I have been called to live life off the grid as a nomad. Only God knows for how long. My gypsy soul is indeed the second leg of my journey. It was a necessary decision for my sanity as well as my finances. My business needed a financial lift and my spirit needed a boost.
Being on the second leg of my journey is very exciting. I’ve been given a second chance to have a new beginnings with fresh insights and opportunities.. I’m looking forward to writing a happy ending to this second leg.. off the tread mill into the great unknown.
What does your dreams, fun and more look like? I wish all of it for you.
smiles and joy,
