It seems like not that long ago we started talking about moving out of Wisconsin. In reality it was over two years ago, maybe more like three years. Then we had this crazy idea that we would live unconventionally.
As time went on these plans changed…several times, but one thing never did. We have a dream and that’s to live and not just survive, we are tired of just surviving. It doesn’t matter how many times these plans change. The whole point of this journey is that we can change our minds and that’s ok. We wanted the power to choose our destiny and to live how we want.
The idea of leaving a conventional cookie cutter life behind is scary. Heck, just getting rid of almost everything you own and moving out of state where you know absolutely no one and starting all over is scary. What if we hate it? That’s ok. That’s the point, that’s why we are doing this, if we don’t like it we can do something else. It’s our lives and we are going to make the rules. We are going to try new things and experiences and if we don’t like something we will do something else.
This year has gone so fast, it seems like just the other day I was freaking out about trying to get into school and affording it and what to do, now I’m done. I knew I could do it, but it was scary and if you had asked me two years ago, I would have said I didn’t know if this would ever happen. I honestly didn’t think I’d ever have the opportunity to go back to school. Every time I looked into it or applied something didn’t work, whether it was the student loans or my transfer credits or my job. Now I’m done.
In approximately two and a half months we are out of here!
