Here is our obligatory “the purpose of this blog is….” statement: The purpose of this blog is to document the story of a couple who decided to do something a little radical [awesome], a little different [fun] and figure out all the ways to make it happen. We’re in the beginning of this journey and we hope you’ll stick with us as we move through it. We’ll try our best to give you the real story, so you can do the things that worked for us and avoid the things that didn’t.
Due to our current circumstances, we have to keep a certain amount of anonymity for a little bit. Well, I do, as I still have a job. A job that needs to sustain us financially until we take the plunge. I’ll just be S for now. B is my man friend (we co-habitate; more than a boyfriend, less [legal] than a husband? you get it).
We are both appreciative, loving humans who crave adventure. This particular adventure we’ve chosen is a part of a whole lifestyle change. For some, taking off for a few months for a trip might seem crazy, and for others, seem like nothing strange at all. It’s a combination of both for us. It’s what we’ve always wanted, but we acknowledge the sacrifices and major changes we are making to make it happen.
When the spark is ignited to make a change in your life, you have few choices:
1. Ignore it.
2. Think about it.
3. Act on it.
I really hate people who try and make it that simple. We all know it’s not always that simple. These sparks are your daydreams, your ideas, the things that mean the world. But you have responsibilities and things….
Then one day it hit me. The reasons to ignore the spark are just things. They are things that, when on a checklist, can be eliminated if you chose.
B & I have chosen to start simplifying. In our upcoming blogs, we’ll start to document how in 6 months we’re going to put aside money, plan a budget, get our affairs in order, etc.
Hopefully you’ll stay tuned :)
