Hey fellow free spirits, welcome to Bedhead Nomad 🌵
So, here’s the wild story of how Bedhead Nomad was born. It was 2017 when I had the idea to write about my life’s journey as a woman in her 20s trying to find her purpose in the world. I decided at 21 to make a cross-country trip from Florida to Portland, Oregon (with my then-boyfriend). I was on a journey to create a wild adventure that I could hopefully tell my kids one day. You could say I got what I asked for and then some. I learned a lesson of a lifetime; you’re never ready for reality until it punches you square in the face. Yeah, I learned quite a lot on my life’s journey, some that even left me with metaphorical bruises and scars. But, it was the B E S T decision I’ve ever made.
Now, I want to share some of my favorite adventures with you. Throughout that wild roller coaster and after crying many tears, I learn a few things that altered my perspective on life. You’re going to experience some shitty moments during your life’s journey, but through those moments, don’t forget to enjoy life, take risks, and do things every day that make you happy. Life can suck major ass, but you’re going to have amazing moments, too (if you allow it).
Life is just an endless amount of lessons you don’t ask for, like, at all. You’re going to fall a lot (a lesson I learned the hard way). But, when you have the strength to get back up, you’ll never be more proud of yourself for fighting. When you’re feeling stuck or uninspired, it’s a sign that you’re purpose is to do something more epic than what you are doing right now. Make tons of mistakes (because you will), BUT make sure to learn from them.
Remember to Get wild, Get Lost & Live Free.
