Create a Life Well Written. A phrase we use a lot over at Handwritten. For awhile now, I’ve been working on figuring out exactly what that means. How exactly do you create a life that is well written?
16 months ago I decided to start living the life I had always dreamed of and never thought possible. I quit a stable job (that had benefits!) to pursue a life of travel, wander & adventure. I had recently purchased a condo, gotten a dog & created A LOT of expenses in my life so leaving that consistent income was absolutely terrifying but I knew it was necessary to find the freedom & happiness I was searching for. That first month of [freedom] was debilitatingly scary. Would I have clients? Would I be able to provide the experience and deliverables that I was promising? Even through those days, weeks, and months of complete and utter fear, I knew what I was doing was where I was supposed to be and that it would all eventually land me where I was looking to go.
Slowly but surely though I was able to build relationships with other business owners in Colorado and create a community of people who were there to support me throughout the journey (and even offer some sweet vehicle living tips, thanks @keith.out.west and @kimberlycrist).
Now, 16 months later, I think I’ve pretty much perfected (as close as you can at least) the working on the road & constantly searching for the next adventure life. I spend about 50% of my time down in Denver & the other 50% exploring the mountains and country with my best friends and pup by my side. I’ve built a system that allows me to communicate with my clients even while seeing the most incredible sites that our country has to offer (helllllo living life out my truck!).
Your life well written may not look exactly like mine. Maybe you want to create a life that you can spend more time with your kids. Or maybe you want to be able to create more time to work on your beautiful craft. If I’ve learned anything over the last 16 months, it’s that no matter what your life well written looks like, it’s so incredibly important that you get out there and find out how to do achieve it. There’s no fun in living a life mediocrely written.
