A New Life – Turning Someday Into A Plan 

The pursuit of happiness forever starts with a dream and a
call doesn’t it ? creating that call may be a method and possible one that doesn’t return overnight. once a seed is planted it needs to germinate before it gets to the purpose of blossoming into an actual call for most people. for me, it started with a feeling of someone thing missing, boredom with the standing quo, a way of longing for someone thing new and ultimately the news that my daughter and granddaughter would be moving to california within the close to future ; the seed.

since receiving that news and for the past many months i found myself visualizing my life with less ; less things and stuff, responsibility and burden. i began to wonder why i required the sheer volume of things i've accumulated that sit unused taking up house and aren't as appreciated as they once were. i came to realize that i had outgrown my lifestyle and so the longing i felt was genuine even supposing the dramatic modification i'm contemplating may be very little bit scary it's someone thing i will do if i select to.

i found myself reading regarding individuals who say they need simply sold all their accumulated belongings to travel or move to enjoy a fully new lifestyle and environment. it sounds thus exciting and easy doesn’t it ? well, i will attest to the exciting half however easy, not thus abundant. you see half of my vision may be a somewhat minimalist lifestyle and so the true ability to be free to move or leave if the mood strikes me. my vision and intent may be a come back to the gypsy like lifestyle of my youth.

i've simply returned from a whirlwind trip to california to require a look at what can possible become my new ‘little’ home ! there are and that i kapprehend there'll be moments when i can question my call and sanity. really i had many of these moments on my trip as i checked out apartments for the primary time in several years. the reality of true downsizing ! the excellent news was every of the properties i checked out had wonderful amenities ; crystal clear swimming pools, exercise rooms, lush landscaping, a few with meeting/party house if required and all maintained by somebody alternative than me ! every had lovely new models i might see myself enjoying however here are many of the queries that place my set up into perspective for me.
•    is there a garage ? the efficient friendly representative gently explained i would receive an assigned parking house and so the remaining unmarked spaces would be for guests. •    how regarding storage ? well variety of the units have a closet on the patio. christmas are going to be totally different and that i guess i’ll be going through the five massive boxes of photos that house forty a few years of memories. no worries, i haven’t checked out them for the last twenty or thirty years and it’s time to condense them. •    laundry ? sure units have a stackable washer dryer and a handful of the properties actually offered the full size versions. in fact once viewing the closets, albeit walk in vogue, i can definitely be ditching plenty of my clothes.

there were additional eye openers ensuing from queries i thought to raise and probably several additional i ought to have asked. upon returning home and taking a look around i realize i've plenty to do ; a home to sell and an implausible quantity of stuff to induce rid of. will be definitely a moment in an exceedingly drastic lifestyle modification when it would be easy to crawl back into the standing quo and simply still believe changing my life and wonder why it isn’t happening. thus how do i maintain my momentum to flip my someday dream into an effective set up for a replacement life ?

below is an exercise with a series of the queries to assist anyone get unstuck and centered toward any goal.
