My thoughts have been continually going back to the same thing lately.
I see these stories of people who sell 95% of their possessions and do things like live on a boat and travel all over the globe, and am instantly jealous. I long to be able to live that simply. Where my time is my own, living life as one experience after another, without the baggage of what most people consider to be normal.
I found this story on Yahoo’s home page about a student who lived in a van while going to grad school so as not to acquire any more debt. What an awesome testimony to how little you can have in your life and get by. Heck, not just get by, but complete grad school! Pretty incredible, if you ask me.
This was just something I felt the need to share today. It spoke to me, and once again, I find the wheels in my head turning. How far do I want to go?
I’d also like to thank those of you in this blogging community who I am constantly encouraged by. Reading your posts just reassure me that I’m not alone in this, and I’m not as crazy as most of the world around me thinks.
Have any of you embarked upon an adventure such as the ones mentioned above?
