Earlier in the year, Wes and I made a decision. We sold as much as we could, packed as little as possible, rented a U-haul trailer… and moved to Florida.
We truly enjoyed living in Nashville. We have good friends, a nice home, and a very set routine (I still miss @southsidegrillnashville and karaoke at @theotherplacenashville every weekend) Although we had a nice life there, something nagging at both of us… we weren’t happy.
One thing we noticed, whenever we would go to a beach, we were relaxed and more peaceful. We also noticed that people actually lived in the places we would visit for a week or less every year. After talking about we made the decision, we were moving to Florida… and it only took us several YEARS to actually move.
I think the reason it took so long is the comfort we had in Nashville. It was really hard for me to consider starting over again - learning new places, making new friends, yada, yada. So, we stayed, knowing we were unhappy, but not moving very quickly to make the jump.
Now that we are here, I am so glad we made the decision to try something new. (I mean, 80 degrees in February is a nice way to spend the winter… lol) Plus, we really have the best of both worlds and all it takes is a quick flight to spend time with our peeps in Nash. But, if on a given Tuesday, we want to walk to the beach, we can.
I have to remind myself of this fact DAILY in all different areas of my life. I haven’t quite “nailed” it.... But, I think this was a great start :)
I hope that this motivates you if you are sitting in a place of unhappiness. There is absolutely nothing worth it!
