But that whisper of dream, kept nagging at me, each day getting louder.
Pro: Buy a house amongst the gum trees, have space to do our own thing, live where people are friendly, grow some veggies, get a goat. Bliss.
Con: No job = no money.
Ahh, that con was always the ultimate deal breaker which would take me back to living in my head.
Then I became pregnant with our second child and maybe it was the morning sickness, who knows, but those visions of hills, fresh air and forests were screaming at me too loud to ignore. Until one day, one fine day, that great big con on our list didn't look so scary anymore.
We finally agreed, "Let'sJustDoIt. We'll give it 6 months and if we come crawling back with our tails between our legs, at least we tried. We'll never know if we never tried."
So we took that great big leap of faith and packed up our car and a bunch of boxes and drove till we found our rolling hills and sweet air.
But you know what? We found a little piece of land with an amazing view, built that veggie garden and live in a community where we wave to our neighbours as we drive down the road and I know we made the right choice. Every day I feel grateful that we were brave enough to start living our dream and who knows, one day we might even get that goat.
So do you dream of a tree change? A sea change? Of living overseas? What's holding you back?
