How Long Will I Do This (Lifestyle)

I had a friend ask me the other day.. How long will you do this? I believe she was referring to this lifestyle I’ve chosen living in my car. It’s a fair question and one that I would surely ask of a friend or a family member too if they had chosen this ‘unconventional’ lifestyle as I have.

Living full time in my car and traveling the country!

Guess what! I don’t have a definitive answer except to know that when I started out on this journey of ‘New Beginnings’ that I made a decision to at least try it out for one year then re-evaluate whether I want to keep on keepin on down the road. I do have this lifestyle ‘bug’ so God willing.. I’m going to keep on keepin on!

In awe of God’s magnificent masterpiece

Many years ago I attended a convention with a direct sales company that I worked for as an independent contractor. A dear friend of mine was one of the main stage speakers. the title of her speech was “It’s always too soon to quit”. I will never forget that title as it is relevant to many things we choose to do in life. I feel that any amount of time shorter than a year would be quitting too soon.

Why? you may ask.

It seems to me that something so different as living in a car by choice when I’ve never done anything remotely like this; needs a chance. A chance to get use to, a chance to travel and see the country, a chance for God to work out all the details of how He wants to use me, who He wants to put in my path and what He wants me to do next. I don’t want to try and put God on a timeline. It wouldn’t work anyhow!

So as long as nothing unforseen happens; a year in Serenity Sedan is a good start.

‘Serenity Sedan’ is her name.. Serene and Simple life is my game😊
Sept 15 we (Serenity and I) celebrate a year of sweet bliss off the treadmill into the great unknown. Perhaps we start all over again on year 2 countdown. That’s the way we roll in this new lifestyle.. a happy traveler, nomad, gypsy soul.. living one day at a time and looking forward to the journey on down the road!

Incredible views.. never get enough

My hope and wish for you is that you too are able to live one day at a time and embrace a ‘serene and simple life’.. however that may look for you.

smiles and joy,

Linda
