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

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills

    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.

    $200.00 of $200.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

Latest Status Updates

Now im housed up in a suite for three days. Two bedroom, two different direction facing balconies, pet friendly, and a kitchen. Thank god for CAA coverage. Smartest thing ive done in months. Covers 600$ worth of lodging and food for 72 hours from "incident". That being my truck being inoperable. This doesnt fix the problem but holy fuck do i need this.
Holy fuck I missed being back out here. Tour’s been fucking amazing so far, and getting to see so many old friends and making some new ones has been fantastic.
Off day between Salt Lake City, UT and Reno, NV today. Gonna try to find a campsite for us tonight and I’m excited to sleep under the stars ✨
Holed up in the shop property for the third day. Fried 6 eggs and made some toast for myself and my dog. Something to spice up the dog kibble life. Poured myself the cheap rum and rootbeer drink. Buddy from the insurance/license place brought me some ice :D But there is no sunshine and rainbows. This is survival. This isnt intagram. It was dark and frustrating and cramped, with that side of lonely. Tomorrow we move.
Looking for a few people to join me in an off grid wilderness community. Have hydroelectric and small solar.
Almost died a fiery horrific death when the wiring crossed an shorted in the camper, had to jump in the water to save my dog from drowning when a current was pulling him under roots and branches (one of the most heartwrenching experiences of my life), and i fucked the engine in my truck on the mountain highways. Repairs are going to be expensive and take long. Thats kindof how my summer is going. Beats jail but just barely
Just covered about 500 mi in 12 hrs by train. Two hot as fuck IMs under a full moon. Only one stop was made...an unexpected siding in the exact place i wanted to be.
I'm finally headed out on the road and out of this state as a renowned painter's assistant in a month. I cannot wait for my childhood dream of travelling as a visual artist of some sort to become true. Hats off to you, Mayosky. Bless your fuckin heart man. Ya saved me.
