I feel like if you have no purpose, there's no point in living. I can't help but feel impatient and angered by my surroundings. We all have the common goal of being happy; I know that seeing the world and talking to new people everyday makes me happy. Nothing is holding me back from doing so anymore.
This world has a lot for me to appreciate and I'd like to do so immediately! I don't need funds or a job, I just need good vibes and one meal a day lol
I need to make the most of my life while I can. If I'm completely honest, I feel very depressed. I shouldn't. I have a great foundation with family, but travelling will change my whole state of mind. I can't do it alone... which brings me to this website ! It helped my ex when he travelled...without me !
Id like to go anywhere you want to go! Just be my road dog and I'll be great company. Help me change my life!
I am 420/ lucy friendly, don't drink much, and am ready to go.20170426_141617.jpg

Thank you for the pointers! I have no destination in particular. I suppose starting on the west coast and either going across to nola or up towards Canada. I'll be posting in that forum for sure. It's been awhile since I've been on STP and only just became a member. My bags remained packed! Thanks again~

Hang in there - tenacity of life and all that! 'Purpose' is like luck - when you got none, you gotta make your own
Anyway, from your intro sounds like you need a change of scenery & social contacts - anywhere but Menifee...
You're bound to connect with like-minded individuals HERE more than anywhere else, so you're already on the right track!

There - I've exhausted my reserve of good vibes until the next cycle

Two things that have really helped me lately in regards to finding peace in an environment that attracts negative ideas/thoughts in my mind is to create clear intent in my mind for why I do anything I do, and focus on making that intent positive, beneficial to the world, etc. This helps me. And to do my best to focus on whatever brings that joy.
Making art helps me a lot to express myself. Cooking or doing things for people, surprising people with small things makes me feel good. As does cleaning garbage in cities, wherever it triggers a negative emotion seeing pollution, I try my best to counteract that negative emotion by cleaning, recycling, sorting through it. and its become a habit, almost an obsession lately. But the intent is clear to me and I feel it's right. Suppress the ego, let yourself shine.
Smiling, trying to share positive ideas and support others ideas has also helped me combat depression.
And lastly, getting into the habit of meditation, which I just started, usually morning and night, has really helped me relax and not let my emotions control me, helped control my mind from wandering in circles of negativity and confusion, finding peace of mind, and just being. Happy, free from suffering. We all deserve eternal love and compassion. We are not perfect, but we are very special and have infinite potential. I hope this helps you. All the best. Safe and happy travels. Everything is impermanant.

Safe travels! Ive been there for sure... Still feel like I'm in the same boat to be honest... But seriously, be careful! Your young and female. There's alot of sick people out there. Hit me up if I can help. What city/state are you in?

On second thought, it's not a good idea to tell people where you are... I've been stocked and nearly killed on a number of occasions. Keep that info private message or over the phone if possible.

A job opportunity jumped in front of my face and they offered me a place to stay... sounds to good to be true but I'm ready to give anything a chance.
I'll be taking notes until I'm ready to hit the road and see the world.
At least then I'll have money too! I'm a broke joke right now. Much love everyone! Thanks a millionnnn

Glad to hear you found work and a safe harbor, I'm almost ready to hit the road again myself...A couple more months and I'll be ready to be " ♪ on the road again ♪" . Going through all this crap and trying to figure out what to keep, what to sell, give away... It's exhausting. My daughter says I can build a 'tiny house' out of her shed in her back yard which I'm going to do so I can have a 'home base', but I'm still going to convert my minivan for me and my dog (Alaska, a white German Shepherd) I rescued from the neighbor who was taking her to the pound.... She makes good company. I decided to leave my motorcycle at my daughters for now, but who knows I might get the hankering to feel the breeze on my knees and the air in my hair. I got a lot of old road dog friends 'left overs' from the old commune days of the early 70's I'm looking forward to seeing again and they live from Florida to Montana, Washington, Vermont, California.... Yea, I might be ramblin' for a while..... Be safe, Be kind and if I see ya, I'll give you a holler and a cup of coffee. I'm new to this site, I couldn't find where to just post, it kept asking to name a 'valid recipient'.... I don't really know anyone on here yet.....So, please forgive me as I don't mean to hijack your post... Best of luck to you and stay safe!!!

Glad you found work and a space to dwell! If you ever do feel unsafe tho, get the hell outta there as far as you can. Your safety is much more important than money. Some people will honestly help you out in any way they can if you tell them your situation

Ahh. Camping out next to the Interstate in the NM desert. With Cinnabons, a giant Coke, and $20 kicked down to me today. I got 4 rides which got me 100 miles. And they were all amazing people... one guy gave me a business card which was about spreading love and that was so fucking positive. Then I got picked up by a really old Mexican couple. I am still so homesick, yet so happy and exhilarated
Reacquainting myself with STP after a stupid long time. Bare with me as I post in the wrong places and suck at pretty much everything here
Looks like my departure is pencilled for the 29th of April. Later then I wanted but still gives me a week of hitching to get to a place to work for the winter and a bit more time to pack and sell stuff.
Back on the grind of commercial fishing despite several years while being on a hiatus, pretending it was retirement. [everything is relevant, nothing is absolute.]

The recent post looking for a road dog in NYC, reminded me of the time I tried to convince @croc that hopping a turnstile in the subway constituted catching out of Manhattan....He didn't buy it....
AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO ALL MY FELLOW TRAVELERS: Please stop telling me about your bowel movements, thank you.
Beautiful couple days for the Atlantic Coast Line
Ah, nothing beats a night’s rest in the desert of New Mexico. I saw an amazing view of Albuquerque last night. Now I gotta finish packing up the tent and get on with hitchhiking to Texas!
Got a ride all the way to Portland! Will be there a few days, til Sunday at least.
Walking to North Bend. Didn’t seem to be any good hitch spots in Coos Bay.
