Am I trying to get back on my feet?

I almost didn’t write today, totally unrelated to any van living problems.  Just having one of those down days.  I felt so down today that I began to start feeling like a loser for living in my van, completely forgetting that this is what I have CHOSEN to do.

I’ve read a lot of blogs about homelessness in the last few days and it seems a lot of people feel homelessness is a fate worse than death and are looking for ways to “get back on their feet”.  I don’t see my situation this way BUT I do need to have goals for my business, so I can have money.  Without money, I WILL be very unhappy.

I don’t need much but I do need to keep my cell phone going, keep gas in my car, keep my storage facility, keep my post office box, keep my gym membership, pay for car insurance (it’s illegal not to in California and I don’t feel like having my van towed away) keep food in my belly, gas in my car and have money for incidentals (like keeping my van running).

I probably should make, at a BARE minimum around $1000 a month.  I’m only making around $700ish!  Not good.  I made more the last couple of months but it’s slowed down a lot.

So tomorrow I need to work on some marketing so I can make some money.  I MAY even get a job.  I sure hate jobs but I guess everyone does.  I just might have to do it.  Assuming that is, that someone will hire me!  No guarantee of that.

Wish me luck or if you are the praying type, please say a prayer that God will show me the path I should be on.

About Maureen, Living in a Van

I'm a free-sleeper living in a van in the prettiest part of the world. I do this partly due to financial circumstances and partly because I love a good adventure.
