Tomorrow, Thursday November 30th, I shift into a new way of living: Life untethered, living on the road full-time in my Airstream trailer.

Coddiwomple Now
95% of the time I am very excited and 5% of the time I wonder what the heck I am doing. The truth is: I don’t know what I am doing and that is a significant part of the adventure.

In January, six months before purchasing my Airstream, I named her “Coddiwomple.” I had no idea where I’d find her, but my dream was to live a mobile lifestyle and it was just a matter of time before me and my future home would find each other.

Ten months after naming her, Coddi (I’ll only call her “Coddiwomple” when she is in trouble!) and I are heading off on the grandest of adventures- the adventure of life untethered: purposefully traveling towards unknown destinations every day and every moment. Our adventures will be chronicled at CoddiwompleNow.com (my travel/adventure website will be live soon). The purpose of our journeys: to explore, connect with people, live life fully, and encourage everyone to do the same.

Coddiwomple: To travel purposefully towards an as-yet-unknown destination
Now: Why wait? “Someday” never comes

How often do you point yourself in a direction and take a step, not knowing how things will pan out, when surprises may pop up, or with whom you will meet and join up with along the way? Most of us do not Coddiwomple nearly enough. We each have the ability to point ourselves in a direction and begin taking steps towards an amazing future each and every day. So often we stop ourselves before starting because we can’t fully “see” exactly how we will get from where we are to where we want to go.

Here is a HUGE secret: You don’t have to know how it will happen because the unimaginable happens. Be open. Know that opportunities will appear- take them. Know that you will have creative ideas in the moment- you will shock yourself, let it happen. Know that if you don’t know how now, you will know how. Be open and go with it. Trust.

Consider this: how many of the most marvelous inventions and ideas were first doodled on a napkin? Why do you think this is? Is it because often the greatest ideas pop up when we aren’t trying to figure things out? Often it’s in the shower, on a walk, or while day-dreaming that brilliant thoughts arrive. It happens naturally and it will happen to you.

What is your dream? What do you aspire to be and do? Coddiwomple Now…. Why wait? Many people “someday” forever. Someday never comes. Make your someday today. Point yourself in a direction, take a small step, see what comes up, and take another step, then repeat. Coddiwomple Now.

Every moment has the potential to be a new beginning. A new beginning can be anything you wish: as simple as taking a different route to work tomorrow, massively changing your entire life, or anything in between. It’s up to you. What is your next new beginning? When will you begin? Consider purposefully pointing yourself towards that unknown destination… and starting now.

    Greetings! Quick question that’s totally off
    topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My blog looks weird when viewing from my apple iphone.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to fix this problem.
    If you have any suggestions, please share. Thank you!

    Heya! I realize this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does running a well-established website like yours require a lot of work?
    I’m completely new to operating a blog however I do write in my
    diary every day. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my own experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips
    for brand new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a
    lot of unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but
    it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet
    without my permission. Do you know any methods to help reduce content from being stolen?
    I’d really appreciate it.
