D Is For "DO IT"!

A - Z Challenge 2012

D is for "DO IT"!

We are "Do It" sort of people, we get an idea, then we work out how we are roughly going to do it, then by hook or by crook we "Do It".

Not everyone is the same, some sit and think about things so long that they never get around to doing anything. Others worry so much about the outcome that they are too afraid to try anything. 

Any of that sound familiar to you?

Us, well we just get on with it. What ever you want to do in life, just ask yourself what's the worse that could happen.

We applied this process to living in a caravan full time. So what is the worse thing that could happen to us? Struck down with illness I guess, but that could happen if we lived in bricks and mortar!

So there really was no real reason why we couldn't make a go of living the way we do. As "Del Boy" so often says - "What could possibly go wrong"!

I guess what I'm trying to say here is that anything, and I really do mean anything is possible if you put your heart and mind to it.

We have jumped a few hurdles since starting out, and so far overcome everything that has been thrown at us.

It really isn't that difficult to do what we are doing. Living in a caravan as we do, does not take a special kind of person, nor are we wired to the moon hippies seeking an alternative lifestyle.

Just two regular/normal (sort of) folk who enjoy good food, drink, music and company.

So what does the future hold? Well, as I haven't developed the art of reading tea leaves I would say that we will be continuing to do more of the same, at least for the next few years, so that we can get some money behind us for the next part of our master plan!

For those of you who are just about to embark on this fun packed never a dull moment lifestyle, congratulations! You are "DOING IT"!

For those of you who are still thinking about it, stop it right this very second, get a pen and paper and work out how you are going to "DO IT" and put a time frame to it. Make it tangible or it will never happen!

Till later...........

P.S. Thanks to all of you for leaving comments, always great to hear from you!


  1. Like the old adage goes, 'There's no such thing as trying, you either DO or you DON'T.'

    I am also a DOER.

  2. Very motivational.

    What is the next part of the master plan?

  3. Very motivational.

  4. I also relate to the "do it" mentality.

    And I love reading about folks who live their lives in that manner - even it it would be my choice - it is a way to open yourself up to new ways of seeing the world and new ways of thinking.

  5. Great post. Sometimes I get so worried about the outcome I can't write.

  6. I moved so much growing up-- I'm not sure that life in a caravan would be appealing to me. Although, I am really grateful for all the experiences growing up all around the country, as an adult I have my feet firmly planted.

    That said-- I love the motto of the post--which is to find your heart's desire and just do it!! Great post!

    Cheers, Jenn.

    Stopping by via the A - Z challenge link up. I am following you through GFC.
    I tried to follow your twitter but it comes up that your page doesn't exists.
    Feel free to stop by my blog at (my combined b-d post)

  10. Wow! Just found your blog from the A to Z Challenge list. Love it. It will be most interesting to read about full-timing from an ocean away. We've been on the road a year and lived in our 5th Wheel for two. Love, love, love it!

  11. I'm getting into the 'do it' mentality myself! Or at least, starting too! :S

    Loved reading a little about your life in a caravan!

    Stopping by from the a-z blog!

  12. Very true! Nothing really measures up to putting yourself out there and doing it. :)

  13. I like this post. So many people are too afraid to just "do it," and spend time thinking about just doing it. Sometimes you just really have to do it...
