Many of you have dreams–crazy, outrageous dreams–that you would like to achieve. Many of you are following our story, in the hopes of one day following suit and beginning your own adventure.
For that reason, I will not sugar coat today. Making changes might just be a matter of deciding to do something, then doing it. But we are all human, and there is certainly a great deal of mental clutter involved. I feel like my head is spinning, like my brain in unusable. In fact, I almost didn’t write a blog post today, but I do want you to know the entire journey.
Because at times it is overwhelming.
We need to declutter the house. There are things we don’t want to be tied to, possessed by, any longer. And those things are not all material possessions. This lifestyle, that we are leaving, did not agree with us. We have the opportunity for a fresh start, but we need to make sure it isn’t the same play, on a different stage.
I will share with you the physical decluttering, emptying, of our house. Our plan is still to take only what will fit in our LeSharo motor home. But, as of yet, we are unsure of our destination. We might:
- Live in the LeSharo for a few months while we boat shop.
- Find a boat right away.
- Sell Moonraker and put that money toward a boat in Texas.
- Keep Moonraker drydocked for a year, while we decide what to do with it.
- Live in an apartment, while we shop for a boat.
- Get a loan and buy a live-aboard right away.
- Live in a smaller boat, while we save up for a larger one.
Honestly, I need to take a break from the planning. It is relentless, and it is rendering my mind unusable.
There is a lot to consider.
So, while I am emptying our house (we still want to be out by the end of the month), I will also be working toward clarifying my priorities. I knew I wanted out, but I was never clear on what I wanted beyond that. I will share my decisions–and our plans–with you as soon as I know. In the meantime, it is quiet, peace, and a slower pace that I am seeking, in order to gain some clarity.
It’s a lot.
Before I go, however, I will share with you some pictures from our trip.
