Welcome to Bedhead Nomad 🌵
My name is Dominique but you can call me Dom 😊. If you’re wondering why I call my online space Bedhead Nomad well, let me tell you a story. It’s not actually a story, it’s quite simple, I like my hairstyle to look purposely messy – the “Bedhead” look. I also LOVE to travel and see the world. So far, I’ve only been to Japan, Australia, Florida, Hawaii, California, New Jersey, Oregon, and Washington. But, I definitely plan on adding more to my list 😉. Staying in one spot is not really my forte but I’m starting learn to grow my roots here in Seattle.
I began Bedhead Nomad after making a cross country trip from Florida to Portland, Oregon. I was 21 and ready for an adventure or a guide to lead me to my purpose in life. Instead, I learned the biggest and most important lesson of a lifetime; you’re never as fully ready for reality until it punches you in the face. That’s the moment when I learned the kind of person I am and how I handle difficult situations. Let’s just say, I didn’t do a very good job…
Using the life lessons that I learned from the past, I try to make sure to not make the same mistakes again. Now, I want to share some of those lessons with you, as well as, to enjoy life and do things every day that make you happy. I hope to bring you some inspiration and laughs in the process.
Life is meant to be experienced. You’re going to fall down a lot (I didn’t believe the real adults when I heard this, but it’s true), 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 probably a sign that you are meant to do something more epic than what you are doing right now. Make tons of mistakes because, you will, BUT make sure to always learn from them.
