Focus On The Now

I have recently been pondering just what I want my future to look like. (Something I do this time of year . . . question my life’s choices that brought me here).

There are positives in living in my RV year round:

1. Freedom.
2. Wherever I park, I am home.
3. Increased cash flow (no rent or utilities to pay).
4. Increased cash for savings.

Yet it is the permanent impermanence that I don’t like. Again, that is why I am working towards buying something: land, cabin, etc.

Yet it is the after that that bothers me, the how to I make a living after doing that, that gives me a moment of pause.

That and “how much savings is enough?”

Which then leads to questions of just giving up and staying working here, at work until I am shoved out the door at the retirement age of (whatever it will be for me to qualify for a pension, if the pension fund is still there by then).

If I do that, I might as well just buy a small condo and give up on the whole “homestead” idea.

All things to consider and all with no easy answers.

The one thing I can do is focus on the here and now, as while I make up my mind, I can continue to build my savings, as the one thing that any of those futures will need is savings.

Even if I build a “tiny home” on the back of a large delivery truck or convert a school bus.

As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
