about being nomadic…

I have been very blessed to always feel loved, supported and encouraged. I’ve been doing some thinking, recently, on people who I have been able share my life with thus far. While most of the relationships I have had have concluded (or evolved) in a good direction, there have been quite a few that have not. With this transition period I am going though, has come a fair amount of soul-searching and contemplating. I am contemplating how I end up hurting the people I care about the most, when it is time for me to move on. Being aware that I am not solely responsible, for another persons experiences and/or happiness, I would love to find a better way to follow my heart and path, without the feeling of leaving devastation or heartbreak in my wake.

I find it a bit entertaining though that “people” have such a hard time understanding how someone can live with no place to call “home”. I often hear a vocal inflection or get a facial expression that says “how sad”, when for me the exact opposite is true. At times, I even feel bad for people who are so stuck in their life and they cannot see past it. It has been very interesting, for example, trying to explain to credit card companies that I am about to start traveling for an indefinite period of time, and will be unreachable by phone or snail mail. It’s humorous that the companies can’t seem to handle anything out of the norm.

    I for one am very excited for this adventure for you. I’m also glad you’re doing the blog so I can keep up with you & live vicariously through you. It’s sad people got hurt feelings for you to leave, but I think that’s normal & may pass with time. We never like to let go of the ones we love & care about. God bless your journey Michael! I love you!
