Who would have thought that I would wake up to the powerful flow of the crocodile river and be situated one street away from the Kruger National Park? Who would have thought that I would find myself based in a one street town so small that when you are trying to do the simplest of tasks online that you soon come to a realization that the entire town might all be online as well. Hahahaah, I found this to be hilarious honestly, its times like these that reminds us that no matter where we are in life or how perfect we portray to the world how our lives are, we still face challenges, no matter how hilarious.
A few months ago I turned a part time stream of income into something more permanent. This has been a lucrative endeavor despite having to drive 100s of kilometres to buy, at times only one item, but like I said its a lucrative endeavor. The more I experience, the more my mind begins to swell up with ideas to write about. Also, finally being around kilometres upon kilometres of luscious greenery has put me at ease from trying to make ends meet these past difficult four years. At times its best to pick up and leave a town or situation that is just not working for us and find another, where things might work out a little better. As we grow older and our responsibilities begin to pile up so too does our decision making. Some become fearful and stop living, not me buddy. Being a free spirit this I find to be easy as I pack and leave within a whiff. Sure, I too have responsibilities, but not as huge as most people. I believe that the less I have, the less I have to think about. Having unnecessary stuff clutter my mind and personal space is just not for me. I believe in simple living, surrounded by nature and enjoying the natural beauty that God has blessed our planet and its inhabitants with. The rat race and being in competition with those around you turns you into a greedy and selfish human. Taking a step back, re evaluating and de-cluttering, begins to turn your life around more positively, even in a small way, I believe. Just like we usually say that a little respect and kindness goes a long way, so too does a little de-cluttering, and in turn gives you the freedom to carry less burdens.
I am grateful for the journey that I have been on, at times I honestly just felt like ending it all, but I continued, even just a day at a time with a little prayer, and today, some four years later, I find myself in a better place, mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically. There has been tons upon tons of challenges that I have had to endure, as you would read from my posts that follow, but I have made it, so too can you. Life becomes unbearable at times, even having every material possession we ever hoped for we still feel that its all just too much. My advice, de-clutter, make your life simpler, step away from toxic people, move somewhere new, and trust me you will find that your life begins to take a turn more positively.
Have a Great week!
One Love 🙂
