Another big change

Living full time in a truck on the road is sometimes quite challenging and yet what it gives me is so immensely rewarding. Exploring dusty tracks and being in a different place every week is an experience I cannot relate in words. It’s something that has to be lived.

For six years I lived that life. Living in the open, sleeping among the quiet mulga trees and life giving red dirt of the South Australian outback. The impermanence drew me in, quieting my mind and allowing me to reseal the wounds and begin to look towards a path not enveloped in darkness.

Life on the road isn’t all golden hour moments of bliss. It had it’s challenges, and yet as obstacles were overcome and new camps found it definitely instilled a sense of resilience and simple stillness. These became the foundation of my perspective toward: What is truly critical to being fulfilled and carrying out some form of meaningful existence.

One of the biggest lessons I learned in this period was that everything changes and to be ok with that. Not to fight it and try and control it but to go along and enjoy the differences and subtle details.
