Busconversion – how to begin
You see: The most important part of most projects is to begin. You can dream and plan and think and draw and talk the rest of your life, if you never begin, you can be sure, you will never get there.
So, we bought a bus. Because we liked it, well: mostly because my husband liked it. But that was enough, actually. We worked for several years to change our income base, so we have something to life from, while traveling (digital nomad style), kept the bus at a selfstorage for some months, and when my husband stopped working at the office (for the next year), we picked up the bus and drove it to our friends farm.
The first drive was a catastrophe, the motor broke at the highway and so did my mind. All of the dreams and the plans, and the bus would not even drive 50 km!
We know this journey is spiritual, and we also know there was an important lesson for os there. Never. Ever. Give. Up. Stay in the present moment. Miracles are right around the corner, possibilities are abundant.
I must admit it took some days. We arrived late at night with a broken bus, extremely tired and hungry – and our friends helped with everything, including our state of mind. We sat up late, talking and went to bed happy and tired.
The next morning we had to get up early to get everyone ready for the most extremely sad funeral: A baby dired juring birht and it was just so sad, so unfair, so very very un-understandable. This story, I have shared in another blogpost.
After this, work began. Here, on the other side of it, I can see how just doing it was important, how we talked a lot and worked a lot, and never gave up. Ivar, my friends fathter, fixed the motor, it felt almost like a miracle. We took out everything from the bus and cleaned and cleaned and cleaned. It still felt heavy and dirty, but that was eventually fixed by a healer, who took out all of the negative energy. We fixed a lot of rust, and learned to fix rust, we drove away with trash, so many times! And we had fun.
