But find happiness in the now. This is something that I am still struggling with. I have many dreams, many grand dreams, and I am working on them.
It is because of my current lifestyle as an Urban Nomad, that I can finally achieve them (eventually).
This is due to the increased disposable income I have as a result of the drastically lowered expenses (because I don’t pay: rent/mortgage, power/gas (okay, I buy propane), or other expenses related to a fixed address.
I am building up my savings so I can have a great future . . . someday . . . in the not too distant future.
Yet in order to do that, I need to keep doing what I am doing now. It is not all that comfortable or glamorous a life, but it is a necessary one.
Yet, I also know that if I do not find a way to find happiness in the now, in the here and now, it may always elude me.
For there will always be things that aggravate and get under our skin, that is life. That and nobody wants to be with a grump, and I do want a woman in my life (pause for laughter).
Seriously, it is the visions of the dreams of my future that keep me motivated, that keeps me going, even through the dead of the depths of winter.
Yet, I also need to find a way to be present in the present, to enjoy the now, the here and now.
It is one thing to work towards and achieve a goal, it is something, arguably just as important, if not more so, to enjoy the process.
That is the dance that I am learning to dance, with two left feet.
As always: keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
