Hey Kind Humans! phewww it’s been two years on the road. Okay so I’ve taken a long break from Finding HumandKIND. That’s okay because I’ve been on quite the journey! Rewind.. My last personal blog post was 40 days into our 8 month long trip (April 2017). After 40+ states and many adventures (December 2017), the plan was to settle down in our favorite state and get jobs. We decided this wasn’t our cup of tea. Sooo we switched out our 150 sq ft travel trailer for a 350 sq ft mansion! We started a photography/video business because we love that shit. And Finding HumanKIND is now a nonprofit because I had to check it off my vision board – duh. We’re officially addicted to road life! Fast forward to April 2019, two years of tiny living. Two years of growth, adventure, and constantly searching for purpose! When I was in high school through up until 2 years ago, I thought purpose and happiness were a destination. A permanent place to arrive at after a long journey of searching. After much self-reflection, mistakes, wins, arguments with my boo, coffee dates with my mentor, and so on and on.. I’ve realized the journey never ends. See, purpose and happiness are not permanent states. Wholeness is. Don’t confuse the two. Whatever “wholeness” means to you is for you and only you to decide. Know this, you will never “find your ONE self” because you will always face change. Your values, thoughts, and passions will always change. Life is not a destination, but a journey of change, challenges, and growth. It can be frustrating. You will find yourself unhappy AND happy – life’s a roller coaster, strap in. It will cause you to doubt who you were and what you thought you’ve become. That’s okay! It can be exciting because anything is possible. Literally, the world is your oyster and you can do whatever your heart desires. It’s also scary, which means your brave self will grow. Because… “If your dreams don’t scare you, they aren’t big enough.” There is no destination here, only the journey to enjoy with those you love most. So grab life by the horns and make that leap of faith. Love you. Mean it.
