There is a bubble of excitement growing. I wondered how long it would take after we recuperated from moving out. Now there is very little standing between us and buying a boat and setting sail. Instead of living vicariously through the blogs of others, we will be the actors in our own play. A week after closing on the house it still doesn’t seem quite real.
A comment from a friend, “I don’t know how you did it” made me stop and think over the past 4 years when we first began to plot how we would make this dream a reality. Really, I’m incredulous that we did it too! I mean, this decision was not made lightly or without a lot of feet dragging. Time after time we would wonder if we should sell the house. About the time we’d decided, “yes, we need to sell”, we’d wonder if we were crazy, or how we could keep it and still make it work. Then there were the times we’d come home from 6 weeks on the road and fall in love with our house all over again. Wow, was that a difficult decision.
In the end we knew it had to go. The weight lifted from our lives is immense. Now we are the stuff of inspirations and that is amazing! If we can do it, anyone can. I know it sounds cliché but it’s spot-on.
