Well, here goes. The last 12 months have been something of a transition period for me. In that time, I’v separated from the military, moved continents, started and quit a job, sold or stored everything I own, spent a considerable amount of time watching Netflix, and soon, I board a one way flight to Mexico. It’s been chaotic, it’s been weird, but I think I’m finally taking a step towards happiness. For the foreseeable future, I’ll be backpacking and blogging full time while traveling the world. But more importantly, I’ll be attempting to show people that there’s another way to live. You don’t have to spend all day cooped up in an office working a job you hate to buy things you don’t need. You don’t have to lay in bed every morning, dreading the day ahead. You can be happy. You can be free. If you set your priorities, and stick to them, its possible to live life the way you want. My priorities just happen to be traveling, seeing new people, places, things, feeling a warm breeze, seeing gorgeous sunsets and landscapes, exercising, reading, watching movies, waking up whenever I want, DOING WHAT I WANT. It’s not lavish mind you; I wont be hanging out at Coachella with a bunch of Instagram models. I won’t be in clubs every night wearing the latest brands, but who cares, those things DON’T MAKE ME HAPPY. If any of that sounds remotely appealing, this is the blog for you. Anyway, I think that’s enough for my first post. Thanks for reading, and hope to see you around!
