Maybe we’ve reached that age, somewhere caught between the exhaustion of feeling we’ve been working forever but not yet reaching the age of the golden handshake. That time served congratulatory certificate and boring, yet obligatory staff retirement party were still a long way off.
We’ve been caught up for too long in a vicious cycle of work. Along with it came the burn out that drags you down, limiting our ambitions for wider life enjoyment, fulfilment and adventure.
It comes from having worked straight from school, before the modern era. Nowadays, many young adults may still be in education at the age we were married with a growing family. It also means we’re now still quite young with a fire in our belly for change.
Children Flown The Nest
Our children are all grown up and ready to venture out into the big wide world. They’re busy planting the seeds of a career path and no longer needing the warm, comforting surroundings of the family home. We’re a compact unit, closely bonded at the edges and always around for advice, guidance and support. However, the chicks have feathers and can fly, taking off into their own fresh, new and exciting directions.
A liberating Time
It’s such a liberating time in our lives, the first time in over thirty years that we’re free. Free in so many ways, bringing so many endless possibilities, opportunities and challenges. It’s such a powerful tool! Freedom, neither of us had quite realised, bringing an explosion of excitement and creating a new path in our lives.
Time to Ditch The Old
It’s a time for us, a time for rebellion against the pesemistic out there, against consumerism, materialism and the repetition of every day life.
So for us, it’s a time to ditch the old and embrace the new, leaving negative people and attitudes out of our lives. Discovering new places and surrounding ourselves with interesting and stimulating personalities is an exciting prospect. Surrounding ourselves in positive outlooks and honest, genuine good intentions to restore our faith in human nature.
Embrace Life Campervan Travels
It’s a big wide world, we all know it. Many of us want to see more of it but few of us take action to do something about it.
That’s not for us, we’ve taken that giant leap and have begun the adventures we’ve always dreamed of. The only decisions now are: Where to, when and how long for!
We’re ready for that next journey of deciding which road to take on the road to freedom. So, just embrace life and if you can, make those changes, we all deserve it.
