One crazy cold afternoon, I had this idea of selling all our possessions and moving to Mexico. This had always been a dream of mine, but never quite imagined it was possible with two children and a dog. Until the day happened...
In 2019, my husband and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary. We, like many other families, had experienced many losses, tragedies, traumas and life difficulties, more than one should ever experience. Beginning to get frustrated in our every day life, I knew our family needed a change. Continuing to have challenges arise, we finally took the plunge. I realized that if I continued to dream and not take action, nothing would ever change.
I filtered through past memories and it came certain that travelling and experiences was what brought excitement and memorable joy to our family. Our 3 bedroom house filled with un-pleasurable consumables, was no longer what I desired. So we did it! We literally sold all our possessions we owned, except for 11 suitcases filled, that we fit in our Dodge Caravan. Many friends and family thought we had reached the new level insanity, but surprisingly they were all supportive.
Becoming minimalist and living freely didn't come easy, there were lots of shedded tears, mixed emotions and doubts. We were on a extreme budget and had absouletly no clue what we were getting ourselves into. All I knew, is I had visualized our family sitting on a beach watching endless sunsets, while having the occasional "cerveza" (aka beer in English) and knowing our children were becoming natural adventurers.
