#GoingWest To My Dream State – #California
September 5, 2019
Road Trip anyone??? We all have dreams of places we want to see or go one day. At 62 I really don’t have a #BucketList. However, as an avid traveler, it’s been my dream though for a long time to drive out west to California to my #DreamState to see the scenery and water — not just Cali, but the entire west coast.
Wouldn’t you know it — just when I prepare to #GoWest, they start having earthquakes again. When I went on the road for an entire year in 2013 to 15 states, after about 8 months, I realized I would not make it to California so I took it off my states to visit.
Back then I had given myself one year to be on the road, but now I realize it’s my dream to live ‘Full-Time’ on the road. It’s funny how your dreams change and how you need to keep adjusting your expectations and #ActionSteps so you can continue on a path to bring total happiness into your life.
I have flown into California on at least 7 occasions before, however, at those times I held speaking events so I went straight to hotels or to the events without having time to explore the area.
I wanted to start this journey as a continuation of my last “One Year Journey” and since I wasn’t able to go to the west coast at that time – #GoingWest will be my motivation and inspiration to start this new journey on Oct. 1, 2019 — #SimpleLifeRVing.
I have fallen in love with the #VanDwellers and their experiences online so by the time I make it to California or to the Rubber Tramp Rendevous (RTR) in January 2020 in Quartzsite, AZ or California, I will probably decide if it will be #TeamVan or #TeamRV — #MoreAdventures.
Most of you really don’t know why it’s important for me to #GoWest to California. Some people on facebook even accused me of wanting to see #MovieStars. I saw plenty of movie stars while working with Customs for over 25 years and I also saw plenty of them during my 20-year stay in Atlanta.
I could care less about movie stars especially today after most people have turned #RealityShow stars into movie stars. Plus I haven’t watched TV in over 3 years so I don’t know who people are anyway. Others are asking me why go there because people are leaving there in droves.
Besides wanting to see the beauty in this country, the “One Year Journey” in 2013 wasn’t just a ‘One Year Pilgrimage’ for me or a chance to see beautiful sites, see old friends and family members, and/or to build my network by holding seminars and workshops, it was to look up certain individuals in the media, who assisted me in my fight against my job – TheCathyHarrisStory.com.
I wanted to be able to look these individuals in the eyes before I left this earth to tell them “Thanks”. Several of these individuals are out west and I still need to tell them “Thanks for having my back.”
These are just some of my #Heroes and #Sheroes — strong black men and women that had my back when I went up against a giant (aka “The Federal Government”). Because of them — I am #StillStanding.
I am finally on my way west to see my #DreamState
– #California and to #PayHomage to those who have paid homage to me — #BraveMen, #BraveWomen, #WarriorSpirit, #FreedomFighters.
