Facts & Figures: January Travel Budget Breakdown

Travel with Soul-Medmenham, England Adventures. Facts & Figures: January Travel Budget

Key to my travel budget breakdowns:
For accommodation, I’m housesitting so may not have a housing cost. If I pay, I may do a combination of hotel points and cash, or I use Airbnb. Accommodation can easily be your largest expense whether at home or on the road.  
Transportation includes buses, flights, gas for the odd car I may have access to, and in Asia, I’ve rented a motorbike before.
Groceries-I’m a vegetarian, so obvs no meat purchases are included. I’m mostly plant based, often buy protein powder, and sometimes buy meat alternatives. I also try to lay off the carbs. I pretty much buy the same stuff where possible. I also seek out budget grocers and farmer’s markets from country to country.
Miscellaneous is anything I have to go to a separate or specialty shop for, like hair or skincare products.
Business expenses are whatever I pay monthly for this site. I prepaid for much of it before I left the States.
Cash-I’m still actively using a points earning credit card where possible, but in some cases cash is needed to buy food or transportation usually.

I know you’re processing and still have everyday responsibilities and how difficult it is to see straight right now.

Overwhelm is how power is given/abdicated, versus asserted. Your power is your magic.

Don’t Tie Yourself to the Outcome

Visionaries-Don't Be Tied to the Outcome
Things don’t always work out the way you think they should. The movie doesn’t always end with a pretty, red bow. Someone you researched and see an opportunity to collaborate with doesn’t email you back. Whatever the situation you predicted. Whatever outcome you thought would be perfect. It may not work out. That doesn’t mean that you won’t reach your goal(s). If you trust your process, you *know* that no matter what you planned, through your constant actions, you’re putting yourself in a position to get what you want. Tweet This The path will wind in ways you never would have thought to take. But you have to be willing to keep putting one foot in front of the other.

Connecting with Your Craft

Visionaries-Connect with Your Craft

This desire to do something with your talent is perfect. The world, society, and your own fear are going to make it difficult for you to manifest it. Trust your process. Part of that involves acknowledging your talent(s) in the first place. The things you love doing, the skills you easily pick up, the hobbies you work hard to perfect. Everyone doesn’t have the patience or make the time to do the things you do. What do you spend your time doing?

How to Create the Family You Want | Asha Live Breathe Heal

How to Create the Family You Want

Sometimes the family we were born into doesn’t provide us with the type of caring, understanding, affirmation, and acceptance that feels like love. That feeling of belonging and being celebrated.

Does your family say/do things that make you feel discouraged about your life choices? Does their fear for your future make you not want to take risks? I think the bigger question you can ask yourself is: Is what they say about me true?
