Welcome to Bedhead Nomad 🌵
I’m Dominique or Dom for short, and welcome to my online space.
Bedhead Nomad was an idea that came to me back in 2017 after making a cross-country trip from Florida to Portland, Oregon. I was 21 during this journey and ready for a wild adventure that would lead me to my life’s purpose I could tell my kids one day. Instead, I learned the most important lesson of a lifetime; you’re never fully ready for reality until it punches you square in the face. Yeah, I still have bruising, scars, and minor PTSD from the beginning of that journey.
Now, I want to share some of those lessons/stories with you. Throughout that wild roller coaster and after crying many tears, I managed to 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 foget 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 that you don’t ask for, like, at all. You’re going to fall down a lot – a lesson I most definitely 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 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.
