Many of us go through life not knowing what we want to be. Lots of adults I know still have not identified their calling, their gift or dream job. I know I am not alone. We work at jobs to make money to support our families but often do things we would rather not. We keep schedules we would rather not and get paid less than we are worth.
Travel is a passion of mine. I enjoy going places and absorbing cultures and meeting new people. I have not quite figured out how to make this work for me as a career, because I would like to move about the world freely. Something I have worked at off and on is writing reviews. A simple TripAdvisor account and your off in minutes. I truly appreciate the care put into a dining experience. The extra attention you may get at a resort or hotel or in some cases the appalling service. I would like to expand into more depth but I am not sure what steps to take next (work in progress).
I also enjoy the experience of downsizing. We downsized our home about 5 years ago. We did it to create more freedom for ourselves to travel and live a more frugal lifestyle. It was not easy. We had to go through a 2000sqft home and fit it into 580sqft. That was a challenge, but we did it. We still go through our closets and locker three or four times a year to purge again. I have just started that blog movingon-downsizingatanyage.weebly.com and I am really enjoying writing some of my thoughts down on the screen and look forward to someday, someone reading it. I joke with my friends and say "I will be finished downsizing once I can fit everything into a backpack".
