What would your perfect life look like?
I’m not talking about winning the lottery, I’m talking real world.
If you could set yourself up to live your dreams, what would that look like?
It is a question Mike and I have been asking ourselves for the last six months and we have come up with our answer.
Our perfect life would of course include traveling. In our perfect world we would travel and explore for six months of every year, missing winter here in Canada and slow traveling someplace warm. We would use the world as our classroom. We would stop and stay awhile in the places that call to us. We would immerse ourselves in new cultures, discover new foods, make new friends, learn more about our world and ourselves.
The other six months would be spent here in British Columbia. We would have a huge garden, maybe some chickens. We would eat local and organic as much as possible. We would camp. We would be involved in our Learning Circle. We would be connected to our extended families. We would host potlucks and bonfires, make music and dance. And of course in and amongst all of that we would work to fund this lifestyle.
This is our new goal. We are going to create our own perfect life.
Originally the plan was to travel for two years and then come home to start over again. But now we don’t want to start over again. We want a permanent lifestyle change…and we think we can pull it off.
Of course we are still working out the details on all of this but we have set our intentions and miraculously things are starting to fall into place.
