Feeling Good

I’ve been feeling really good lately.  I hope it lasts.

I like shopping for and cooking my own food.  I kind of like cleaning house again.  I’m afraid though, that I’m only enjoying if because it’s a novelty right now.  I never liked cleaning before I lived in my van!  I always liked cooking but cleaning up is a different story!

One only has so much energy.  When I’m done working, doing errands and cleaning up after myself, there’s very little energy OR time for my side/future business.  That’s a drag.  I’m not sure what to do about it.  Hire a maid?????????????  Yeah sure.

Still and all, I’m settling right back in to normal.  I’m the kind of person who doesn’t look back much.  I guess if I let myself, I might miss some parts of free-sleeping.

I liked waking up at the beach.  But I can drive there anytime.  I loved the feeling of waking up from an afternoon nap, under trees near a park.  I have a tree outside my window though.  There are even falcons nested nearby!  It’s neat.

I like having a roommate.  That could have gone either way.  I lucked out.  My roomie and I both try to be respectful and generous with each other.  It’s so great.  We are doing things together liking going to the beach for walk and going to the gym together.  I finally have a gym buddy.  (I changed gyms too, that helped)  Friday is the night when we (usually) sit down for a glass or two of wine together.  It’s relaxing and feels safe.  I really lucked out with the lady.

I have had to say goodbye to my companion of three years, D.  He crossed a line with me and I can’t have him in my life anymore.  Again, I try not to look back…there’s no point.  I have to keep moving forward.  To what?  I don’t know but I’m looking forward to lots of adventures!

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.

    Really glad you lucked out with the roomie. That’s a win/win for sure.

    I’m sorry about D. 🙁

    I think it’s great that you don’t look back much. I’m trying to learn to stop my own looking back. It’s hitting me right now the most I think because I’m turning 50 in a couple of weeks and I’m also getting rid of more stuff from the past. Not much storage in a 5th wheel!

      Hi Angela, great to “see” you! The funny thing about getting rid of stuff, whether it is material stuff, a bad relationship or whatever….there will always be more “stuff” if you are open to it. The important thing now, to me at least, is to try not to let too much bad stuff or bad people into my life.
