How did this all come about?
Hello and welcome to Keep Your Daydream. We’re Marc & Tricia and we’re glad you’re here. We personally want to invite you to follow our adventure on YouTube, listen to our podcast and read our blog for inspiration to turn your “someday” into now!
There is no question that we’re living the dream…but it wasn’t by accident and it wasn’t easy.
There was a time when we were chasing the more traditional American Dream. Nothing seemed to be enough. After a while, it felt like we were spending every day managing our “stuff”. The garage needed to be reorganized every other month and the kids always wanted the latest electronics or toy. From the outside, we had everything, but in reality, we were just distracting ourselves with the latest thing to create excitement.
Every year felt just like the last, and vacations were exhausting due to the obscene cost of flights, hotels, car rentals and eating out. Long story short — we were ready for a change.
We always had big dreams, like sailing around the world and living in Europe for a year, but we started to feel like we were waiting for our life to start. So we asked ourselves a simple question:
What could we do right now?
We were watching YouTube almost daily and were following countless sailing and RV channels. We decided that we could buy an RV and use the truck we already had to travel the States for six months. Tricia learned from the guests of our “Keep Your Daydream” podcast that we needed a concrete date in order to make our dream happen. May 27, 2016, was 5 months away and just two days after the kids got out of school. That was as good of a date as any!
Tricia was right.
Once we had a date, everything else became clear. It became easy to make decisions once we knew when we were leaving. Saying no to random events that we would have previously attended became easy, because we were working on something bigger now. Decluttering the house, getting rid of clothes and selling furniture became the new weekend pastime.
Little did we know that the first 6 months was eventually going to be known as “Season 1”.
If you’re looking for something new and have an idea in the back of your head, you may have already discovered that it’s not going to go away. We can help you turn these ideas into a reality and share what we learned along the way.
