For being the shortest month of the year… A LOT!
The whole month was messy. My life needed to completely fall apart in order to rearrange for the better things to come. The more I resisted the change, like I’ve done many times in the past, the more crap I had to deal with. So, I had no choice but to let things happen and keep an open mind. After all, most things in life are out of our control.
I completely moved out of my apartment, donated or sold most of the possessions I had within a few days, dealt with a complete financial collapse (which was the lowest I’ve ever experienced), took a leap of faith and traveled 654mi/1,052km one way to the Four Corners without a plan or much cash and dealt with a huge spiritual shift from mid month towards the end.
The spiritual shift was the the most profound experience this month. I was so overwhelmed by what I came across that I just didn’t want to blog for a few days. All I wanted was to reflect on the month and chill. And Sarishboo, if you’re reading this, I didn’t forget about you. For some reason, I draw a blank every time I try to work on responding and I have no clue why, as it seems to be the easiest thing to post. I hope I can post it soon though. Again, thank you for the nomination!
So as I type this, I am enjoying coffee at a Starbucks up in Sunnyvale, California, a little south of San Francisco. It’s 410mi/660km away from home. I’ve never been up here before but I once again decided to take another leap of faith because I want to travel.
I took a job up here as another independent contractor for something other than skydiving. It’s flexible and somewhat, allows me to travel. I thought I would give it about a week, keep an open mind and see how things go. If it doesn’t work out, I’ll head back home in SoCal and figure something else out. There are infinite possibilities in life, we just have to find the ones we are a match to, even if it requires us to step out of our comfort zone and take a leap of faith.
I don’t know anyone within hundreds of miles but that’s awesome! I get to see new faces, new places and experience new things. I’ve always liked experiencing change and new things, even when it may be scary. But ever since I went through my spiritual awakening, and the magnifying effects it had on me in February, it’s less scary and something I now deeply feel that I have to experience many times in this lifetime.
I’m once again camping out in my Jeep Wrangler. And to be honest, I love it and hate it. I love it because it humbles me so much, especially when it’s super cold outside. I hate it because it’s so cold in the morning when I have to get up from the back seat and move to the front seat. But whatevs, it humbles me to the core and that’s what’s important. Not many people want to ever experience this, mostly because of fear.
So March has started a bit messy. The drive up here wasn’t nearly as smooth as the drive to the Four Corners. I ran into many obstacles but I got here and now we shall see what the rest of March brings me. Cheers!
