So I need y'alls help. You know I've had some big life changes over the summer and I've been trying to figure out what exactly I'm going to do after selling my house and all that mess.
Here are some of the things I've been throwing around:
A) Sell some of my household stuff and goods and downsize...like, truly live a minimalist lifestyle. Because, let's be real, we often get entirely too caught up in our possessions and material items.
B) Sell ALL of my household stuff and travel the world, not really having a "home," so to speak.
C) Or the dreaded one...get a "real job" and go back to work for "the man." Ugh. (No. Thank. You.)
I've always wanted to travel the world. To be adventurous. And I've lived some adventurous moments, but for the most part, I've lived a pretty boring, "normal" life.
I graduated college, started working for the government six months later (I "lucked" out in that sense), and then waited for the "right guy" to get married. I mean, it took me longer than I thought to find him, but hey...it happens. And of course, look how well that turned out.
But I digress.
So I worked for the government for just about 12 years. But I was so miserable. I dreaded going to work...with a passion. So I did something about it. I was brave and walked away. And I thought I had it all figured out.
A little over a year later and my world implodes. My husband is arrested and our life falls apart. Well...my life does. And now I get the opportunity to START ALL OVER!
Do you know that means? Originally, I saw this as a terribly negative thing. Like, holy cow, how could I possibly be starting over all over again?! Literally, from ground zero.
But now? Now I look at it as I am FREE to make the choices I want to live my life exactly as I want! I get the OPPORTUNITY to do whatever it is I want!
So what do y'all think? Should I travel the world? New experiences, new opportunities, new locations. There are, of course, downsides to this, but isn't that what life is all about? Taking risks, making changes, living life.
Or should I downsize, get rid of my stuff, move into something smaller and enjoy LIFE, instead of focusing on STUFF? I love Virginia Beach and the life I've made for myself here. So I certainly would miss being here.
See the dilemma?
So weigh in for me. I'd love to hear all the sides of this. Anyone who has done this? Traveled the world after selling everything? Or downsized 100%? Give it to me...the good, the bad, and the ugly!
I appreciate all of y'alls support and advice and love, so let me know what you think!
Have a beautiful week!
With love and wellness,
