If I’m being honest, I’ve been pretty bummed out lately. I’ve been feeling like my country isn’t the place I thought it was. I’m not going to get too political. I try to make a real effort to keep it light, but it’s been difficult for me to keep calm and carry on, as they say. This morning I was looking for something to console me and I came across this quote by Maxine Hong Kingston: “In a time of destruction, create something.”
For the past year, I’ve been quietly working on a book. I also work a full-time job and I didn’t want to put too much pressure on myself, so I didn’t tell many people. Last week my editor finished editing and I’ve been working to layout the book. I’m on time for a November 25th launch.
And I need it. This book is giving me something to look forward to and it’s helping me to be more grateful. Living a smaller life in an Airstream has given me so much and I want to share it with others. It’s taught to be more resilient and resourceful. It’s allowed me to save money. It’s taught me to live with less “stuff.” It’s allowed me to focus on more important things– like family, friends and adventure. And I know in my heart of hearts, living small can do the same for you too.
On Black Friday, when everyone is rushing to the stores, I’ll be at home releasing my ebook, “The Ultimate Guide to Living Full Time in an RV, Airstream or Motorhome.” I hope you’ll purchase it.
We’ll talk soon.
With love and hope,
