LUCKY BUS TOUR
TIme in the bus
For those of you who don't know, I purchased this little yellow bus after my life started to unravel. I lost a best friend to suicide, lost my job, was evicted, and became homeless in a matter of three months. I had hit rock bottom. I spent some time on my Grandma's couch in upstate NY grieving, healing, and soul searching. I spent a lot of time meditating on connecting with my spirit, trying to understand how to pull myself back together and create something meaningful out of life's painful chaos.
Buying Lucky was my way of taking back control and pursuing a life of deeper meaning. I no longer live a life out of convenience, or expectation, or routine. Every belonging serves a purpose, every action is made out of intent to do good or be happy, every memory made is good for the soul. Living minimally has created SO much space in my life, both in my closet and in my head. Before I felt like I never had enough time in the day and I never had the right thing to wear. Releasing myself from the anxiety attached to objects has been such a relief, and I realize just how little one needs (and yet I can still look cute, go figure). I feel like I have twice as much time in the day, and find myself doing the things I always wanted to do (traveling, learning an instrument, reading books, connecting with certain people) since I no longer have a set routine or set mindset that limits my opportunities. Living free, baby.
On top of the lifestyle and happiness benefits, the bus also allows room to get ahead financially. Living within our means and not dumping thousands of money into rent every month allows Dan and I to save and get ahead of the game financially. I think this will pay off in our later years.
My partner Dan and I are living full time in Lucky for at least the entire year of 2019, living as intentionally as we can. We're going to share it all, the good, the bad, and everything in between. Strap in, kids. It's gonna be a bumpy ride.
