Top 5 Ways My Jeep Changed My Life

I have said so many times, "My Jeep Changed My Life". In so many ways, large and small, my Jeep has changed my life. Here are the Top 5 Ways My Jeep Wrangler Changed My Life.

I found my passion. That passion is my Blog and Vlog. I love sharing my story through my words and video. Photography has been a love of mine since I was in elementary school. 

I became a television videographer, but gave it up to raise my family. Now with my YouTube videos and my blog I am able to use my passion in this new age of social media. 

I have made so many new friends from being part of the Jeep Community. Friends I know will be in my life forever! I may not see them every day or week, but they are some of the best friends I will ever have.    

I never truly had a hobby I could call my own until I discovered off-roading. It is so exhilarating being out in nature with my Jeep tackling the trails. 

Working on my Jeep has given me the gift of empowerment. There is nothing like modifying your own Jeep knowing you did the work yourself. The best part is realizing how capable I really am. 

A new mindset, some people call it minimalism, but I call it Living Simple. It's about what is important to living your best life and focusing on what makes you happy. Living Simple is marked by clarity, purpose, and intentional living. Intentional living is the promotion of the things I most value and the removal of everything that distracts me from it. 

I believe that Living Simple isn't about what I get rid of but more about creating more space for the life and purpose I treasure most.

I found the stuff I had was distracting me. That stuff was taking up my time. Getting rid of the stuff allows me to use my resources better use elsewhere. 

Getting rid of the excess stuff in the basement, back of the closet and shelves in the garage, and all the stuff for the “what ifs” in my life was so freeing. I do not need to pair down to nothing but ditch the excess. 

Living Simple is a guardrail that helps keep me on a course toward a more meaningful life.
