About 2 yrs ago I gave up my high $$$ career, gave away all I owned w/exception of 1 duffle bag of clothes and my car. I completely changed my life...for the better. I have traveled & worked temp jobs, helped out others and just really, dedicated my life to God. I have been on a wonderful spiritual adventure and it truly has been life-realizing/changing.
Today I heard from an organization I applied to The Christian Appalachian Program, a non-denominational social services program that helps build/repair houses in the Appalachian Mts., summer camp for poor children and a lot of educational programs. They want me to come to Kentucky the 17th of this month for a face-to-face interview & to see if it's something I could dedicate a year of my life to. This is the first org I've found which pays a small stipend, provides health insurance & of course room & board (community living)....
This is monumental for me because I have been turned down by so many places either because I was not college educated, I refused to "join" a church or specific denomination, I openly admit to smoking & supporting the legalization of marijuanna (for me it way beats the anti-psychotic meds they try to push down you!) and for whatever other reason....just wasn't meant to be at the time I guess.
So, I'll be taking a road trip from Colorado to Kentucky and hopefully after they see my black spiky hair I'll still be in.....
If it doesn't work out then this summer I'm taking off and just going to go ????? I'll work along the way & just meet and love others. I just wanted others to know that we should never give up on our dreams and that even when you think the world's against you don't lose hope.
I have so much love for so many of you I don't even know and I just feel like finding this site has too helped me realize dreams....Love, Peace, Joy!!!
well i wish you the best on whichever ventures you may endure, and hope that you can accomplish that in which should be done without devistation. I applaud you on your open honesty, in which I'm sure you expected certain outcomes, and I always try to remember everything happens for a reason, nothing is coincidental you seem to have much to offer enjoy, and be well.
that is so cool I hope you get the job you desire and I hope that everything works out for you. I myself don't smoke weed any longer but did for a long time and I feel that to each his own your right it is better then dosing up with prozac every day. good luck to you on your journey..
Im very happy for you. I wish I could just go on a car and like.. live in it and travel around lol.. but i cant . I hope your life gets even better and that they like you with the black spiky hair (even though is not the greatst idea haha).
