#Walking2DC: 7 More Days

Building my Itinerary…

Earn & Educate

After a restless night in the quiet and dark, I woke up at 3am feeling refreshed. I got on my laptop and just started working. I may not be getting paid lots a dollars as of yet, but I know that I will be able to do what I love and support myself doing it.

Also, if no one else wants to pay me moneys to do it, I’ll just keep doing it for myself. Writing, graphic design, and fooling with this website make me happy. It fulfills me.

So, the funniest thing happened. My alarm went off at 6am and I realized that I WAS AWAKE for the daily prayer call. I usually completely miss it, as I hardly ever shut my eyes before the sun is about to rise. I immediately dialed in and just received that blessing with my whole heart!

So, in preparation for my journey, I spent today devising my itinerary. From the looks of things, It may take me a couple of years to actually get to Washington DC. πŸ˜‚I’ve gotten as far a Baton Rouge.

See, what had happened was, God put it on my heart that this journey is not a negative thing. This is the opportunity that I have desired all of my life… (only I kind of saw luxury vehicles and 5-star hotels in my dreams…) I get to travel. I get to explore the country. I get to visit the museums that we always pass by because no one else was interested.

I get to take my time and go where something interesting is happening. I get to learn. I get to meet people and talk to strangers. I really can not wait for that part. The logistical part is still a little bit frightening, tho.

I am praying that I am able to earn enough to purchase a bus ticket for the first leg of my adventure. Heading straight all the way to Lake Charles…Only cuz the bus doesn’t stop in Sulphur.

I know it sounds a little ridiculous, but I want to stop and see all of the interesting places we have just passed by… in too much of a hurry to get to our destination. As I was researching, I had no idea that most of these museums existed.

And, as I have nothing but time on my hands, I’m going to use it to Earn (a living), Educate (myself), and Elevate the kind folks I come across by listening to and sharing their stories. We all have stories that no one wants to listen to.

I want to listen, tho. πŸ‘‚ And I want to give others the opportunity to learn about real life… instead of making assumptions and judging things they know nothing about.

Chose to haul ass to Starbucks today. And look! I got a “treat”! Spiced Pumpkin Iced Latte. 🀒
I really prefer to be outside.
Went prepared with a packed lunch: Sandwich, Yogurt & Cereal, Water w/mint & lime, Green Veggie Smoothie.
