A Glimpse Into Our Nomadic Way of Thinking

I don’t know about you, but I grew up hearing “You can do anything you want Sandra!”  Year after year this is what I heard every grownup, Disney movie and countless commericals  tell me!  I truly believed my whole life that I could live a retired lifestyle way before actually being retired!  I attempted to follow the masses and go to school, get a job and accumulate vacation time until I woke up one day literally hating my life!  I was tired of being told when to go on breaks, when to wake up, when to leave and worst of all when to use the restroom.

I have come to the realization that I am not the only “crazy” nomad around!  After completely changing our lifestyle and not settling for the “steady” home in one particular area I have met hundreds of others like us!  I have had multiple conversations with my fellow nomadic friends and we all have one thing in common we realized that we do not have to settle down how society tells us we have to. 

The big house we are supposed to have feels more like a limitation to what we can do.  We love to travel, connect with new people, become better versions of ourselves every day all while teaching our children by example.  Instead of just telling them they can do anything they want and to NEVER settle I find it way more fulfilling to lead by example and show them.

We have figured out that we do not need a house to call it our home.  Our homes are full of experiences versus a ton of stuff that just weighs us down.  We have a whole world to explore and having that big old house feels more like a weight over our shoulders, holding us back from exploring the beauty around us! 

We have come to terms with being true to ourselves and truly following our inner guidance system.  We truly believe that life isn’t meant to be lived in just one place for some of us.  We can travel for as long as we want thanks to the freedom we have because of technology.  We might be a “crazy” generation of traveling nomads, but crazy to me is a compliment.  Those crazy enough to think they can change the world always do!

I am thankful for being true to me and following my inner guidance system.  I am no one special just an introvert living in an extroverted world who decided enough was enough!  I am here to live life on my terms and enjoy every second possible of this beautiful world we live in.  I have no time for the negative and no time for regrets!  Please do not settle for anything less than your worth!  I hope you too can find the strength to follow your heart and truly believe that you too can achieve ANYTHING you put your mind to!

    I love this mentality and lifestyle. I lived it more in the past than right now, but there’s almost no going back completely. There are things I miss about knowing where home is, but I like how you point out that these adventures refine us into better versions of ourselves.

    What an inspirational post 🙂

    The nomadic lifestyle is honestly not as haunting as it sounds and it’s as real of a reality as anyone’s regular life. I love that you have a partner to share these adventures with though! <3 Happy travels.

    My tag line is… Travel ADDICT– living and loving outside my COMFORT ZONE. Terrified of nothing but a 4×6 ft grey paneled cubicle and punching a time card. So I feel ya. I had to marry someone who didn’t think like me so we could always have something to eat though. lol

      Ty for taking the time out to read it Angie! Yes my kids need to see our examples not just hear us tell them to chase their dreams while we are miserable in with what we do for a living! Now my goal is to teach others that they too can do what they put their mind to so they can be an example to their children too!

    I can totally relate to you about stuff weighing you down! I never knew how freeing it would feel to have less! We sold everything we owned when we moved abroad and only brought two suitcases filled with clothes and essentials. I love it! Leaves so much time for travel in our life – which is a huge priority to us.

      That is so awesome ! How liberating! This wknd we decided to practically get rid of most of our clothes and just have the basics and essentials and I feel even more free now! Love hearing about fellow nomad adventurers!

    I can totally relate to your perspective! My hubby and I were talking about the same stuff last week. Buying a house is a great responsibility on a shoulder. It will always be a hindrance in your plan when you have to satisfy your wanderlust!

    We would love to do this, even part time. I hope once retirement comes we are able to. I so wish my job was flexible enough to let me do this, but alas….not today lol. I love your blog!

      Ty Erin! I definitely feel blessed to be living the “retired” life at my age! The truth is in this day and age anyone can do what we are doing! The key is to find someone that is already doing it and reach out to them. That’s what we did got a mentor and now live a laptop lifestyle where we work from wherever the heck we want!

    We have been so nomadic throughout my life. It’s nice to settle down, but I miss the traveling. One day, when my kids are older, I plan to travel more. I want to see new places and go off the beaten path to see those little unknown destinations.

    Way to go guys! Escaping the rat race and carving your own path can be a hugely daunting experience, but once you get going you never look back! As the saying goes: “Don’t think, just go.” Thanks for sharing your fantastic stories and best of luck with your future travels!

      I love that quote! That is exactly what we did we just did and then figured it out as we went! If we wouldn’t have we wouldn’t be here today about to celebrate our one year anniversary as a full time traveling RV family!

    We are exactly the same! We have moved 7 times in the past 15 years. Now that we have finally bought our forever home, I knew we might feel restless. I told my husband that we had to make a point to travel to keep us from being restless.

    Fantastic post, and I can totally empathise with what you’re saying. I love the sentence about what your homes being full of experience versus things that weigh you down. Spot on.

      Something I love about traveling full time in our RV is that our home is ALWAYS with us! We literally have everything we own wherever we go ! Its quite the experience to park our home in new places every couple of weeks to explore and learn new areas! Its also nice having my own bed every time vs a hotel bed lol

      I totally agree Dawn ! Being genuinely happy in life and with ourselves means walking in our purpose! I am so glad that I took chances and am now walking in my purpose of helping others believe in themselves and figure out what freedom means to them!
