Today marks a month and a half, 45 days, of being on the road full time living out of my car and I still can’t believe this is my life. ✨
It’s not always easy, but I wouldn’t trade a second of it.
Every day I learn something new about myself, every day I feel more resilient and prepared for anything.
I’ve camped in the desert, I’ve met inspirational people, I’ve went way too long without a shower, I’ve climbed all over Yosemite, I’ve had to deal with dead car batteries and flat tires, I’ve explored slot canyons in Utah, I’ve hiked a couple hundred miles, I’ve danced the night away in Los Angeles, I’ve spent days not speaking to anyone in person, I’ve laughed around a campfire more times than I can count with strangers that became friends, I’ve cried in a Planet Fitness parking lot wondering why I’m even doing this, and I’ve cried in the mountains looking up at an immense amount of stars wondering why I didn’t start living this way sooner. 🏔
This may sound cliche, but follow your heart, do what makes you feel alive and passionate.
I remember watching YouTube videos of people doing van life and outdoor sports and having a partner shut down those little sparks of inspiration, deeming it as silly.
But I took the leap and I’ve never been happier, even with those miserable super cold middle of the night outdoor bathroom trips. 😅
