We have an AMAZING life. We do still have several monthly bills, unfortunately; we didn't win the lottery (nor do we even play it, lol); we've never been the recipient of any "family money"; we've received no financial assistance from the government, family, friends, or anyone else; we recently sold 90% of our possessions; and we now "live" in a 22 foot long travel trailer (Really we live in the great outdoors, all we do inside the camper is sleep unless the weather is yucky.) Yet it feels like we're on vacation every single day. We are now able to spend every single day (and night) together, as a family. We meet wonderful people who we never would have had the pleasure of meeting before. Our "work" involves helping other people work from home. On a daily basis, we are able to do, see, and experience things that most people wait all year to try and squeeze into 1 week of vacation....
In the past 2 months we've been to 6 beaches:
- Hunting Island
- Myrtle Beach
- Emerald Isle
- Atlantic Beach
- Indian Beach
- Virginia Beach
You may be wondering exactly HOW we're able to afford this lifestyle. The answer is simple- we made the DECISION to make it work, no matter what it takes. We made the DECISION to start living, not just existing. We made the DECISION to do what makes us happy and live like we're dying (because really, we are...we ALL are!) When you want something this badly and you commit 100% to making it work, it's going to work...one way or another....
When people find out about our chosen lifestyle, they have 1 of 2 reactions.
- Think we're nuts.
- Envy us. Wish they could do what we're doing. (My response to that is- YOU CAN!)
