Today, I embrace homelessness. The freedom to seek out a new home, and to experience new things.
I am not lacking in possessions, I have camping gear, a laptop, a waterproof backpack of clothes, and savings until I leave for the US later this year.
So why not take this opportunity to travel around Asia and work on projects I am so grateful for having the chance to do?
Time and time again, I’ve enviously double-tapped on squares of my friends and acquaintances as they struck out on their own. You can find me scrolling with abandon, devouring their technicolor montages of adventure and wishing I could experience my own. Not discounting all the less glamorous aspects of digital nomadry.
Am I terrified? Overwhelmed by nerves? This morning maybe. But I worked through my anxiety the way I worked through a project I had to present this afternoon, by staying busy, and doing good work.
Now that my phone and I have had a few communes today, my next few steps are set. I know my long term goals well, everything else in between will just have to play with me by ear.
So this is it, my homeless pep talk. Wish me luck.
