An article popped up unexpectedly on my Facebook page titled, Stacy Westfall is Living My Dream Lifeand played a part in inspiring yesterdays blog.

It is always strange to read an article that was written about me without my prior knowledge. It is another way to see how other people perceive you as well as what common desires people share.

Leslie, the writer, happens to daydream about full time living on the road with her horse. Not everyone would agree, in fact there are days that I even question it. But even if you don’t share that same dream there are still lessons that can be learned from the idea.

When I have my doubts, which I am planning on sharing more of with you in the future, I have a way that I deal with it. I ask myself a question: How hard would it be to go back? or another way to look at it would be: How hard would this be to undo?

If I decided tomorrow that I didn’t want to live full time on the road, I am confident that I could buy another house in Mount Gilead, Ohio. The transition to go back would be easier than the transition to leave…which is probably why fewer people do it.

But if you can turn it around, view it another way, it is liberating.

What dream are you not pursuing because the transition into the dream would be hard…even though the transition back would actually, now that you think about it, be easy?

    You never have to stop living your dream life. In 2007 my husband and I sold our home in Virginia to full time in a 5th Wheel and travel the country. We ended up sitting in NC for 7 years with him working at a tech company that swore that travel was RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER. We stopped, took inventory and now he has changed jobs to another tech company and we are on the road. You should never give up on your dream life. Stacy it was great to meet you today. Thank you so much for being you and bringing so much joy to so many people.

    A dream life is just that: a dream. We all have to wake up eventually. Real life gets in the way!

    Unrelated subject, but I have to leave it somewhere. What happened to your son’s minis? I know you took them from Ohio to Texas, but you haven’t mentioned them since.

    Stacy, I really love your blogs. You lift people up, motivate and inspire! It’s refreshing and a lifeline of hope for many, including me 🙂

    I have a place in southern MI that you could stay at too. Indoor arena, separate pastures, and lots of empty stalls.
