When we were making the decision to do something radically different with our lives, I did a lot of online reading. There are hundreds of people out there doing what we are. Everything I read was so positive and supportive of this lifestyle. No one was talking about how HARD it is. I’m not sure how my writing is perceived, but let me tell you, this is the hardest thing we have ever done. And so far it hasn’t gotten easier, but harder. Crazy hard! Also, expensive!
We are having a great time and wouldn’t want to be doing anything different, but this life we are choosing requires great sacrifice, over and over again.
It scares me a little because we are making major life decisions on a daily basis, and our cortisol levels are running high, which is never a good state to be in for making major life decisions. Cue more cortisal.
I feel good about things, as hard as they are. I feel like we are making sacrifices to live our dream, and even though it’s a lot of work, things are happening so fast and with that “woosh” feeling that it makes me think that it’s exactly as it should be.
