Edinburgh, Scotland

Hi everyone!  As you all know, I have been traveling for three years.  The first year it was very fast travel, the second year it was planned ahead of time while balancing the transition from a stable life to a digital one, and this third year was mostly about finding the balance between being a digital nomad to a more location independent life.  I do not regret any of it, but change is a part of life and I am welcoming the next chapter.  I want to nest.

Looking back, “they”said I should not, but I have.  “They”said I cannot, but I will.  “They” said I will not, but I did.  Moral of the story: “Never let others tell you what you can or cannot do.  You DEFINE YOU.”   People think I am crazy for having the life that I have.  I think it is crazy to live the same day 365 times.  It is all just a matter of perspective and personal preference.

No lifestyle is perfect, but being a digital nomad has taught me that what I was really seeking was freedom.  You can have freedom by being location independent too, and not having to stay in a particular place solely to keep a job.  I can work from wherever I want as long as there is an internet connection.

As a digital nomad, I received many blessings.  I was able to have experiences that enriched my spirit and made me laugh with joy.  However, I also inherited other types of problems.  Trying to find a reliable internet connection wherever I went was beyond stressful.  It cost me a contract and I do not wish to go through that again.  Also, traveling by yourself helps you to become more self confident and reliant, but eventually you want to be around your group of friends.  You want to be a part of a community and to possibly welcome dating again.  It is close to impossible to have a personal life while moving around.  The connections are there, but eventually you leave not knowing what could have been.  Therefore, I have decided to nest and find a place to call home on a more long-term basis.

I am now extending an invitation for you all to travel with me.  I want you to come with me on my experiences.  Unfortunately, I cannot welcome hundreds of people, but I can welcome 20 at a time.  I want to keep my groups, small and personable.

Furthermore, I will focus more on my writing an the endless opportunities that come with it.  It is not easy to keep writing when you are always on the move and trying to find a place to live with good internet.  It is too easy to find distractions on the road.  By staying in one place for longer periods of time, I will be able to sit down and focus.

Lastly, I want my experiences now to be more focused and with a purpose.  If I am singing, I want it to be for a cause.  If I am traveling, I want to bring people together from all walks of life to create once in a lifetime experiences. The past three years have been amazing and I have met so many wonderful people around the world.  Now, I am taking all the lessons learned to write the next chapter.  More news to come, but for now, thank you for following me all these years.  All of you have enriched my life in ways that words cannot express.  I will continue to keep you posted on this website on my journey.   I hope it has inspired you to live a happier and more fulfilling life.  Life can be magical, but we must first feel deserving of it.
