Live and Experience Your Life’s List – The Gypsy Traveller on tour

reetings from Canberra in the Australian Capital Territory, Australia.

As many of you know I have been ‘Living the Lifestyle‘ that I chose and created for myself. I am a firm believer of ‘just doing it’ and ‘making it happen!

I am currently travelling all over South Eastern Australia with my ‘business based on my laptop’> All that is needed is simply an internet connection and then I can work from anywhere in the world! This is allowing me to live life I want and experience the many new and exciting adventures that the Universe is placing before me 🙂

IT CAN BE DONE! 

For nearly 3 weeks now I have driven over 2,500 klms (1553 mls)  yet I have only seen such a very small part of this vast homeland we affectionately call the Land of Oz… i.e. Australia. And what a magnificent country it is! From the tropical rainforests that abound with life to the vast open plains of tawny coloured grasslands; from pyramid shaped hills and mountains covered in olive green Eucalyptus trees to the ever growing skyward city-scapes from where their suburban sprawls radiate out from.

From bright and often blinding sunshine to high winds and raging tempests……. to the softness of sleet falling upon ones face to the cold waters of the Bass straight awakening the spirit within.

We need to experience the changing of the seasons to renew and revitalize our body-clocks, especially those of us that reside in the sub-tropics or tropics of our north ( Southern Hemisphere).  By having a ‘true’ winter occasionally, it will bring us in tune with Mother Earth and the elements that exist throughout the Universe from which we are made of.

JUST DO IT!

I am also meeting some beautiful people along the way and for the very first time :)…… many of whom have been my friends on Social media for many years. This enhances the friendships that have been created (well in most instances….in fact some of them may be glad to see me drive off!! hahaha).

However in all seriousness, it is a time for self growth thus learning more about oneself along the way.

I have dreams and certain goals but I am always flexible to make the changes that are necessary. Some of the goals and dreams were pathways to a greater experience, thus I opened myself up to the direction that was placed before me.

These goals and dreams are on what I prefer to call a ‘Life List’ as a ‘Bucket List’ is defined as something to do once and ‘tick it off’ once it is completed. I may well want to do all or some of what I have experienced already over and over again!

Restrictions, (other than legal or moral laws of course) are not in my vocabulary. My body might tell me you are not as fit as you used to be sometimes but that is ok… I do as much as I can and simply give it a go. I would rather have tried than had ‘regrets’…another of those words I try never to use. Perhaps ‘misgivings’ for want of a better word…. for not of at least trying!!

LIVE AND EXPERIENCE YOUR LIFE’S LIST

So let me ask you this!….. Are you living your life? If not why not? And once you have come up with all the usual excuses, sit back and think about your dreams and goals and see that the reasons you are NOT living your life is because you are making excuses when you should be making choices!

YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN YOUR LIFE’S DIRECTION. IT IS ENTIRELY UP TO YOU!

Life has not been easy for me either at times, especially over the last 9 years or so. I have made certain choices and experienced massive learning curves. But you know what? I have LIVED! I have NO regrets just lessons learnt. I have found ways and made changes to be where I am now. And no, it is not always easy but life is a continual process, not one to stuck inside a small box and vegetate.  LIVE IT!

So no more ‘I can’t afford it or I don’t have the time.’ YOU can and you do if you choose too….

Come see the world with me.
