Today Is A Day of Change




Today is my day of change!

Today, I’ll officially be homeless.  And I’m excited about the opportunities that it presents.  My homelessness is by choice.  I know, that sounds ‘stupid’.  No one becomes homeless by choice.  But I have.  You see, I’ve sold my house and I’m not buying another and I’m not renting a house or apartment.  I’m taking on an uncomfortable adventure of traveling…..perhaps I’ll find a new home, but first I look to travel.

My first stop on my adventure is The Florida Keys……   I’ve been there before and I actually have wanted to live there, but the affordability is ridiculous!!  So, other than visiting and saying buy to my relatives in Louisiana, this will be my only U.S. stop.

Today is a day of change.




Running for the border!!

First stop is Mexico.  Heading for the Riviera Maya, the Caribbean coastline of Mexico.  Yucatan Peninsula the State of Quintana Roo, gosh I like the sound of that Quintana Roo. It sounds exotic.  I’m not sure for how long…….then I’ll turn my attention southbound to Central America.  My European and British friends have a BIG tug on me, but this is my start, I’ll see them a bit later.

Today is a day of change.




Most of my financial burdens will be washed away.  I’ll carry only a car note and insurances.  Just the size of my house note and the utilities and upkeep is such a huge financial relief!  I can find a place in my journeys for a fraction of the cost of living here.  Yeah, I may in most cases give up some of the U.S. luxuries but that’s okay with me.  I’m not gonna try and live a life of luxury but rather become acquainted with the culture, peoples and language of all the countries.  My only regret is that I hadn’t done this before.  I’m over that though because I’ll be too busy doing.

Imagine yourself practically or fully debt free.  I think that having a debt ridden life is the new American Dream.  It’s definitely the American Way of life.  Even before this time I had made a serious effort to reduce my debt and honestly was very successful.  Once an individual or a family gets themselves debt free…..it opens so much more in opportunity.  It’s just they can’t see it, because they aren’t looking at a life without that debt.

Today is a day of change.




I actually at this very moment have no idea where I will lay my head this evening.  And, I’m not troubled with that either.  Clueless.  I know, you’re reading this and thinking out loud I can’t just live like this!!  I don’t know that to be so, we’re trained, programmed to think in different views of security.  I’m neither scared nor afraid.  And honestly this moment has caught me by surprise.  Meaning I thought I’d have it planned out a bit more detailed!  Hehehehe.  But, I find myself here and I’m observing and learning from this moment as I have an idea this may happen time to time.  The not panicking aspect is important…..keeping a level head.  And another thing, I’ll tend to ‘this’ later.  Vagabond!

Today is a day of change.




I find that good.  Nothing adventurous stays the same.  I actually didn’t intend to stay hunkered down for 17 years in Florida.  The plan was to move to Puerto Rico around 11 years ago.  But, that didn’t happen. Debt and bad economy were shackles.

Find your passion, and feed it. Get out of debt, and live it.

Today is a day of change.




Peace, Love, and Beaches,

John

      We’ll have some bumps in the road but then it wouldn’t be an adventure if there weren’t any.
