One of the biggest gifts I have received along the way is from the ones who have traveled before me. They made it and so deep down I believed I could too - even if my knuckles were white holding the steering wheel or my hysteria huge as I saw the floor of my trailer sitting on the wheels (yes, it was that bad and that expensive!)
But in every step of the way, life - the universe - good people as angels, call it what you want, stepped in and took care of me.
I didn't lose my trailer hitting bumps because of a delay in getting started that first day and a kind man pointed out I wasn't even connected properly.... And yes, my floor fell, but in a town of two buildings, 40 miles from city, only a quarter of a mile away was someone new to town who could fix it.
As I get more comfortable with the mechanics of traveling and living in a tiny trailer, the fears along this road of adventure still pop up. There is no security that is absolute in this world. I learned that living in a home that I bought following all the rules and I still lost it. I've learned it in traveling in a mobile house where I can be asked to leave on a dime or choose to leave for much less.
I've continued to tell others who ask my why I am doing this that one of the main reasons is to learn to walk in faith - not just talk about it. Yet ironically, I walk much more than I talk about trusting in life, the universe, or the good that lives in all living things.
This has been both a miraculous and terrifying experience. But the gifts aren't the aspects that have been scary or hard. The gifts have been the blessings that come because of the difficulty. The fear of what might happen is much greater than when something uncomfortable or scary does happen.
The reassurance I want to share today is that from every trial comes more confidence and faith - in your self and in others. A daring adventure is about finding courage, not comfort. It's about discovering your strength, not affirming your weakness. It's about confirming that at their core, most people are good when you have the experiences that require you to actually interact with them!
I am still trying to find the best ways to share what I am still learning to inspire you to your own daring adventure, but I also want to reassure you - that even when it doesn't look like things are going your way, have a little faith because it will be okay.
Love, Jill, Lilith, and Freedom!
Welcome to my Journey!
I'm inviting you to join me on my journey as I seek to find a new way of being in an old set of systems. It's hard, but worth it!
