I went on a bit of hiatus for a while. I didn’t exactly announce it, but it was planned and now I’m back. If you’ve been wondering where have I been and what my hiatus means for you, keep reading.
Sometimes the Universe calls to us in an unexpected way. We feel pulled to do one thing which exceeds all other things. If we don’t listen to the call, we end up feeling bad. The call I responded to was to travel. It’s been a lifelong dream of mine to integrate travel into my work and life.
When the Universe Calls, You Gotta Listen
Lucky for me, several months ago, my boyfriend and I decided that it would be really cool and fun for me to go with him in the big truck. For those of you that don’t know me, it’s been a life long dream to experience life on the road in a semi so when the opportunity came up, I grabbed it.
Some days were very long and tiring, but over all it was fun. After many sleepless nights, I finally settled into sleeping in the truck. We went all over the United States, bopping along taking things where they needed to go and I’ve seen more of our beautiful country in such a short time. The whole experience still baffles me.
The down side to all of the travel sadly has been my biz and blog have suffered. Ok, maybe they didn’t suffer exactly, but they did get neglected. The sights and sounds of the road were too much to ignore. I did bring my computer with me though during that time but, I had no desire to get it out and do anything with it. I had every intention to write while in the truck, but then I didn’t. As a result, something very amazing happened on the road.
Live in The Now
I was forced to live in the now. In fact, living and being in the now became my new norm. There wasn’t any pressure to create or post on social media or write or anything. We were just living day-by-day in the truck. I looked forward and enjoyed every mile and every minute of it. I got a serious break from social media and the internet which I so terribly needed.
Being on the road has given me a clarity and a focus I’ve not felt in a while.
What does that have to do with you?
Well, I’m going to be focusing on the community I created over on Facebook, What’s Your Five?. Everyday, we post five good things in our life right now. That’s it. I’d love for you to join us there. I’ve found the community is full of such love and positive energy. I’m also writing a book about the Five so….more about that later.
I’m also going to just focus on my writing as well. Both the books and this blogs so stay tuned.
That’s all for now. 🙂 xoxo
