Here we are. Standing on the edge of a cliff having taken the one step we cannot take back – Sold our House! We’ve pulled the trigger and the bullet is set to hit November 16th – our move out date. What remains is simple. Minimal. Just the sale of all of our furniture, clothes and all of our worldly possessions. Oh and buy a big sailboat and set up wills and and a bunch of other legal stuff. So we have a lot to do but our house is sold!
I suppose it’ll get real in a few more weeks. Right now we’re both in a bit of disbelief this is actually happening. The fact that This Dream, that we’ve secretly talked about for 7 years, is now coming to fruition is hard to grasp. There were many bumps in the road. The (slow) sale of our house being most recent. There will be more to come. We haven’t even started looking for a sailboat. Who knows how that search will go. But I suspect the buying of anything is always easier then the selling of everything.
We are nervous and anxious at times. I would even say scared. We often think about what we are leaving behind. We don’t know how long funds are going to last. We’re going to miss family and friends. It’s inevitably going to be rough at times. But we are ready and dead set on giving this a go.
The main thing for me is that I feel alive in the fullest sense. It’s not for everyone. It’s a life for very few. But if I were to watch a replay of our lives, I’d want to always be sitting on the edge of my seat. Either due to fear, fun or laughter. To heck with boredom.
A selfie minutes after all conditions were removed from the sale….Frightened? Yes. Excited? Heck yah! Irresponsible? I don’t know but it sure feels good.
