I have a dream of traveling the world as a Digital Nomad. Seeing the world and earning Location Independent Income in the process.
“If you realize that you have enough, you are truly rich.”
I have downsized and cut all of my cost. I have been happier living simply with only what is essential in my life. Only with what I care about and only what brings me joy. It’s GREAT!
I got rid of so much useless stuff. Stuff I never used or even wanted. Stuff I thought I would use SOME DAY. All of it I spent time storing, physically and mentally managing.
Now living a Living Simple Minimalist Lifestyle with more time and less stress and only managing what is important to me. I think it is important to see the country of my birth first before I travel to see the world.
I am earning a little income online (Borg Communications, Borg Web Hosting) and with my lower expenses, I am almost on my way to begin to see every nook and cranny of the United States and then the world. The Living Simple Minimalist Lifestyle has been good to me.
I worked as a Field Engineer Consultant for a Telecommunications company in the New York City area. I also have two other websites, Borg Communications, and Borg Web Hosting. In my travels, I have witnessed everyday people running at full pace on this hamster wheel we call life. I was one of them a short while ago, Before my living simple transformation. Keeping up with the self-inflicted pressures of life (debt, bills, taxes, toys and keeping up with the Jones’s).
I have also seen many people who fell off the hamster wheel and seen those that got off willingly. As a living simple minimalist, I now almost stress-free, calm and more present in life. I love IT type of work and I would probably do it for the rest of my life. But I would also love that I have slowed life down, be more present and fill it with what is important to me when possible.
Minimalist Digital Nomad Hamster Wheel
As I spoke with those that got off the hamster willingly wheel ending the daily self-inflicted wounds, they seemed very happy. Not over stressed. Brown bag lunch. Not overly active outside of the home (dining, partying, work events). Slowing life down and moving towards the Living Simple Minimalist Lifestyle seemed to allow people to be home more. They talked about simple things and spending time with the family and friends.
Now I get it. Now that I jumped off the ever speeding hamster wheel of life, changing direction towards a Minimalist Lifestyle I don’t miss a thing and am now looking to learn more of what this lifestyle can be about because I just naturally walked into this arena and did not plan for it. It was not a conscious decision but a subconscious move away from pain. Someone once wrote that even a new-born baby is smart enough to move away from pain and towards happiness.
“Possessing things increase your responsibility to maintain them. Hence, it is important to carefully choose your belongings. The time you save from having to arrange less things can be used for doing the things you really like”
