Is it possible?

It's been there for a while: the idea that one day soon I'll be able to go solo again, live off grid and use Patreon and other platforms to fund a minimalist life.

But then: I've got a family to think of — as my wife continually reminds me.

The problem she wants a house (which she says is also her home — a distinction without a difference in my humble opinion); I don't.

I want to start by going on the road, using my renewed legal practice as a freelance lawyer to initially fund our travels and then see where the wind blows.

Dreamy as hell I know and certainly it doesn't sit comfortably with my control-everything-at-all-cost approach to life but it's what is coming up right now.

Of course, I could suppress this nascent itch but, knowing me, that'll only make it grow stronger. Instead, I'm going to try and find a tiny house or equivalent (there is someone in my local village who does something similar), work on our finances to square them away and then double down on finding new clients to fund at least part of our lifestyle.

As to my writing, speaking and other paraphernalia that will also need to be part of my new Patreon et al. offering, I still haven't decided what that looks like but for sure, I'm going to have to be much richer in my offering. As much as I love what I'm doing it's not going to fund much.

If all this sounds terribly selfish, then I'm loathed for the sake of keeping the peace to stuff down the emotions that have run deep for a long time. All that will lead to is a degree of angst that's totally unnecessary. 

Onwards, forever onwards.

Blessings,

Ju.

If you're able to support my work through patronage then you can either do so via Patreon or buying me a virtual coffee ☕. 

If you're interested, I offer a limited number of places for coaching clients where I ask you to consider your direct experience of life and what it means to awaken to true self.
