I was tired and stressed from the previous two months but also exited to be on the adventure that we had talked about for so long.
Eight months is a long time to be away from family and tomorrow I am heading back to the UK for 10 days to visit mine.
I think it is safe to say that I am returning home a different person. Gone it the stress and tiredness not to mention a stone in weight (thanks to a raw food diet). I am happier than I have ever been, living in my little caravan with my man and my fur babies. I love that my life is so simple now and I get to appreciate how great it can be when you let go of things that you don’t really need.
Of course that doesn’t mean my family and friends who I miss and can’t wait to see but it does mean all the things that I used to fill my time with that I thought were sooo important.
I’ve learned that I don’t need a big house filled with fancy stuff. I don’t need a wardrobe full of clothes and racks of shoes and boots. I don’t need my endless supply of fashion and gossip magazines to keep me updated with ‘celeb world’ – who cares what they are doing when there is so much to explore here. In fact I’ve learned that I don’t need very much at all. That everything I need is exactly what I have right here and right now.
So, yes I can’t wait to get to Stansted tomorrow and see my big brother and my little sis (who hopefully will be there to meet me!!) but I am also looking forward to coming back to my little oasis that goes wherever we take it as well.
