Not sure why I am here to be honest, well actually, no.. I do.. sort of.. I guess its the start of my journey.
I am finding myself (at nearly 50) looking back to when I was my young fit self and wondering why the heck did I not think and feel what I do now about the world and my place in it because if I did, my life might have followed a totally different path. I look back and think how carried along on the wave of how we are taught to live and was so influenced by so many factors that I feel I have wasted so many years not being me, but then if I am honest, I dont suppose I really knew who I was. I hit 40 and when they say life begins, it kinda all ended for me and I had a major turn around in how I had to live my life.
Last year, I suppose pushed along by my health condition, I started to feel very suffocated with life. I just felt more and more that bricks and mortar just brought/bring more and more complications, more things to think about and I started to get this impending need to break loose of all the shackles that hold me in this way.
I got the amazing opportunity to spend a month down under and although this trip of a lifetime was somewhat curbed I have come back to Blighty to find that all these shackles that hold me in life as it is, feel like they have tightened.
I have known people who live free'er .. one living in a yurt and the other who lives in his van and I find myself envying them greatly.
So .. I guess really.. am here for inspiration and looking for answers to my questions in the hope that what information available to me here might aid or deter me to take this feeling further..
I shall probably read/look on with great envy to those of you who do and admire you all for taking a step away from society in that way..
I look forward to getting to know you all
