What do you do when life hands you a basket of lemons, drains your wallet daily, & adds more pressure than it takes to make a diamond? Well, we are thinking of just packing it up, selling it all, and calling it a day.
The idea of it seems irresponsible and I can only imagine the comments from friends and family. The clamor of disbelief & fear almost intrigues me even more so to step foot into the wild. Push me ya’all I dare yah!
This weekend we are headed to the Appalachian Trail for a 4 day, 3 night trek. We will be starting at the Sugarland Visitors Center a few miles in from downtown Gatlinburg, TN & we are hoping for a spiritual awakening. Let’s get real, more like a Spiritual Lightning Bolt straight to our Spirit Man.
Tired of the noise, tired of the mundane day to day nonsense, tired of paying rent to something we don’t own, tired of the big city life, & most of all tired of forging an “American Dream” that doesn’t quite fit our dream.
My husband and I have been married for 2 years & 2 months. At the beginning of our relationship we traveled quite a bit & enjoyed living a simple lifestyle, exercising, & the availability to move & shake when we wanted to. Now it seems we have become slaves to the money & are being drained of our carefree, adventurous souls. God made us all differently, and for us we know he made us to be active, adventurous, & appreciative of what surrounds us. However, that’s hard to do in a 576 sq ft mouse trap with roaring sirens, horns honking, and the sunlight that rarely reaches your balcony. Instead for the past 2 years I have felt like a lab rat being injected with a societal serum that makes me feel sick, depressed, & angry.
So who knows where we will end up, but the juxtaposition is doing what’s right or the responsible thing… But maybe just maybe the irresponsible thing is what leads us to our true inner peace. Whether Mother America approves or not! It’s time for a change.
