four years ago today [2012.09.07]

on this morning i woke up on a dirt road surrounded by corn fields.

it felt like it was my destiny to be on this trip.

several years earlier, before i moved to chicago for four years, i had thought of going.  it was almost like a plan on the back burner.. if i hadn't moved up to chicago with friends, i was going to go on a trip west.  a friend ended up getting accepted at a program up there and a few of us moved up to join another friend who had already been there a year.  when i moved out of chicago, i almost made the trip and move out west with my girlfriend at the time.  it never happened as neither of us had the funds to get there, though i started thinking about rv's shortly after that.  nearly two years later, i had gotten my truck and camper.

it wasn’t a simple process, as i had found myself caught up in much research, and looking for ways to get an rv that wouldn’t cost much.. i was completely out of money when i left chicago and had no income due to struggling to start a business the couple years prior.  while having gone through a breakup, business failure, bankruptcy, having no money or income, and living back with family, i was at a low point in life.  i embarked on a journey of personal and spiritual growth that i had begun while in chicago.  less than a year after leaving chicago, i found myself at a powerful course that would change my life.  this workshop would take me through the awakening, transformation, and growth i needed in order to manifest a large client that would bring me much more income than i had ever earned in a year.  most importantly, it would change how i felt and perceived life.  not long after starting the big project, i began looking at the rv options again.  i narrowed down my choices, drove across the country to different dealers, decided on my camper, and placed the order for it to be built.  shortly after, i decided on the truck to carry it and ordered it.  it took the whole summer for the camper and truck to be ready, though it was worth the wait.

going on this journey west almost a year after getting the truck and camper was certainly an adventure i had looked forward to.
