I am in a unique situation, where I am able to focus on just doing what I love – as in hobbies and interests without being required to work or make a living as some would say. I can’t help but sit back and realize that all these years I’ve spent working I had allowed myself to get comfortable and let my work dictate how my everyday was going to be. I no longer tried to do something different or interesting.
I started off being active in this blog thinking that in itself would be a motivation for me to the things I love as in reading, cooking, spending time with my dogs, etc. However, it’s not just that it’s about me and living my life the way I choose to. How many of us can say that we are truly living life the way we want to? Are we spending our time with those that we love the way we want to? I don’t want to lay somewhere one day and think “I should have spent more time with my friends and family” or “I wish I didn’t work so much” or “I should been a better a friend”. It’s so easy to get caught up with the everyday grind.
We hear it all the time to seize the day and live life to the fullest but seldom do we actually do it. No more excuses. I only have $3.93 in my wallet and I’ve got to say it’s an amazing feeling to know that that doesn’t matter. My husband and I are not rich by any means but we are in a wonderful position. After this venture in California we can literally go in any direction we want to. That is an amazing feeling.
