Live on your terms!
There are a million digital nomads and a million ways to be a digital nomad. The amazing thing about the digital nomad lifestyle is YOU get to choose how to structure it or live it with wild abandon. You can go all-in, like Alise and Gregg, with no home to return to, traveling 365 days a year. You can have a home base and travel a few times a year, or everything in between.
“As we travel, I’m asked regularly, ‘What do you love about being a digital nomad?’ That’s an easy answer. FREEDOM! Not only am I living an amazing life, traveling, meeting people that change me, having new experiences, and eating incredible food with international flare, I’m living by my moral code, my choices, my desires, and in connection with my body. I continue to discover who I am and who I want to be. I’ve overcome so many fears, about money, safety, heights, bridges, attachment, and control. Like a boat in the rising tide, I’ve become more and more free, self-confident, and learned to trust myself. It’s been such a beautiful amazing journey. As I travel to other places, I find myself a little bit more in each one.”
How to become a digital nomad
Society has trained us that to become something we need the validation of an outside source. This is not true, especially with becoming a digital nomad. The truth is you become a digital nomad the moment you DECIDE you are one. Like any goal that you want to achieve, it first starts with a dream. What do you really want for your life? Who do you want to become? Once you know your heart’s desires, you must decide what you want. This decision requires your full commitment. If you kinda sorta want to become a digital nomad, it won’t happen. It’s your full commitment that will guide you through the challenging times of setting out on the road, or building your business, or finding the ideal remote job.
Change is Hard
In the e-book How to Become a Digital Nomad, Alise addresses the emotional side of setting out on the road from money to limiting beliefs, and addressing how hard change can be. “As we set out on our travels and paired down our possessions to a car load or a few suitcases it was difficult, for Gregg more so than me, but it was still hard for me too. I packed the clothes I was going to take with me, and everything else in my closet was being donated. There was so much I was leaving behind. It made me wonder how I had needed that much to begin with; I only have one body. While packing up the rest of my house for donation, my emotions of attachment helped me see that my possessions had owned me, I didn’t own them. Without realizing it, I had been buying things because they made me feel full inside and gave me a temporary feeling of happiness.
The more I had, the fuller I felt, but it wasn’t real. I was caught up in ‘having’ and ‘more’, but there was nothing of substance. Not having a home to return to made me really look at my beliefs about roots, safety, and stability. Years later I can look back on that experience and I can’t express the freedom I feel not owning many belongings or having those roots tying me down. It was an invisible weight I was carrying. Now I feel so free, so light, and yet so full, full of my experiences, self-love, self-trust.”
