|A recent fortune received after some tasty kung pao|
Sometimes we have to get back to our core. That inner 'thing' that tells us what we really want is a powerful tool when we actually pay attention to it.
It's easy to get caught up in over-thinking stuff and hoping to do what we 'ought' to do, all the 'shoulds'.
The facts are what they are in any situation; and yet how those facts pertain to our lives can be something else entirely.
So for me and mine, for now, the most important thing is that we are all on the same page. We're coming out and declaring to the world that we are going to make a move to Southern California!
My husband and I have spent a lot of time in California, making wonderful memories and strengthening the bonds of family and friendship. California is our go to, for reliable weather and an easy going attitude. California has been pretty good to us over the years.
We need to leave the Seattle area. Hiding out from the grey and the rain 9 months out of the year has never been our bag. We are constantly seeking out sun. The snippy 'Seattle freeze' attitude is real. Frankly we're tired of spending time trying to avoid interaction with people who want very badly to let you know how much better they are because they are greener, donate more to charity and are just way smarter than you.
There are always things we can complain about in any place we choose to live. It's time to stop complaining and move on. While Washington is beautiful in many ways and Californians can be dopey and apathetic, there is no perfection anywhere. Only different experiences that can fit us better or worse at different points in our lives.
This feeling of being ready for change is so strong now. I am familiar with it. It is the exact same feeling I had when we bought the Palm Springs condo one year ago in November.
That turned out to be absolutely one of the best things that my husband and I have ever done!
